Description of Northwave Phantom Carbon Shoe – 04 black/yellow fluo
The Northwave Phantom Carbon shoe has a Skin Overlap upper construction which provides the perfect snug fit and distributes pressure more efficiently across the foot for superior comfort. It is equipped with the SLW2 dial plus 2 asymmetrical straps: the only one with step-by-step and full release in a single button.
It is compatible with the NW Speedplay adapter for the lowest stack height between foot and pedal. The adapter is not included in the scope of supply.
Speedplay Adaptor (not included in the delivery): The shortest distance between foot and pedal on the market. Northwave developed and patented, in collaboration with Speedplay, an exclusive adaptor that provides maximum power transmission on pedals, thanks to the reduced thickness of just 0,5mm rather the 3mm of the traditional Speedplay adaptors. Made of nylon with a thin aluminum plate (it saves 8,5gr) it allows to respect the natural anatomy of the sole keeping minimized the distance between the foot and the pedal in any position. Without adding bulk and weight as it occurs in systems without the adaptor.
BioMap: Your energy is precious, never waste it. That’s why the shoes are designed with BioMap technology. Northwave soles, uppers and all their components are anatomically compatible with every cyclist’s feet and are designed to keep the foot in the right position while pedaling, transmitting power directly to the pedals without wasting any energy.
Carbon Light Sole: Carbon Light sole made of carbon and fibreglass with a stiffness index of 10.0 and 4 vents for constant airflow.
Integrated Heel System: The new unibody construction of the uppers allowed to integrate an efficient heel retention system inside the structure, without the need of external elements. Same efficiency, reduced weight.
S.L.W. 2: Maximum precision and usability. The side button offers dual functionality: press the button for micrometric release, or lift the button to instantly undo the shoe completely. The ergonomic shape of the ratchet base matches the shape of the foot for added comfort, while the size and minimized weight plus the outer soft-touch covering make it easier and better to grip. It features wires that harness the best technologies used in sailing, and can be easily replaced using the spare parts kit.
Regular Fit: Tests on hundreds of feet and countless trials have created the perfect shape for transferring 100% of your power straight to the pedals. The toe is designed to be just the right size to prevent any numbness, while the slightly set-back instep and the special snug-fitting design of the heel hold the foot in place during every pedal stroke and prevent any slipping.
