45North is here to solve all your winter cycling woes

Whether you're getting ready to go out and enjoy your Surly or Salsa snow bike, or are just dedicated to riding your "regular" bike all winter, having the right equipment is key to enjoying comfortable and safe cold-weather riding.

That's where 45North comes in. 45North (aka 45NRTH) is committed to producing the finest clothing, parts, and accessories specifically for winter cycling.

Their flagship product is the Wolvhammer SPD Cycling Boot. The Wolvhammer has been around for a couple of years, and with the new 2015 model, they've tweaked a few of the features to refine what was already the warmest cycling-specific shoe available.

Start with a Vibram sole, for awesome traction through snowy and slushy hike-a-bike sections. The sole is SPD-compatible, meaning it works with any 2-bolt cleat/pedal system, like Shimano SPD, Crank Brothers, Time ATAC, or Speedplay Frog. Or, you can leave the cleat cover in place to use the boots with platform pedals.

The upper is constructed of 1680 denier Cordura ballistic nylon for unparalleled durability and abrasion-resistance, with a waterproof-breathable membrane for moisture control. The integrated hook allows you to add gaiters for even more protection from winter slop. The zipper/velcro closure and velcro cinch strap hold it all together.

Inside, there's a synthetic fleece and monster fur inner boot with 200gram Primaloft Eco Gold insulation and pull-on helper loop. Finally, an aerogel nanotechnology insole (based on technology developed by NASA) keeps the cold from being transferred through the cleat to your foot.

The 45North Wolvhammer Cycling Boot is now in stock at Century Cycles in unisex whole sizes 41 through 47!
