Description of Northwave Scorpius 2 Plus MTB Shoe Blue/Orange
The best-performing Scorpius ever. Packed with top-spec solutions like the thermowelded multilayer construction with no overlaps, SLW2 dial closure and triple-density Speedlight 3D sole to transfer full power to the pedals.
AirFlow System: It’s the Northwave ventilation system with large vents that lets your feet breathe: the lower vent channels air inside the sole, while the side vents guarantee a supply of fresh air.
Speedlight Carbon 3D Sole: Full carbon sole. The 3 carbon layers drastically reduce thickness while increasing stiffness. The AirFlow system prevents overheating of the sole and therefore the foot itself.
Multilayer thermo welded construction: New Multilayer construction: a light microfiber is coupled with large thermo welded mesh vent inserts at the same thickness of a traditional monolayer. The result: better comfort and reduced weight.
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.
Microinjected protections: Upper with microinjected reinforced protection to protect your feet from any injuries caused by branches or stones while out on the trails.
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.
