45NRTH Wölvhammer Winter Cycling Boot Redesigned for the 2016 season

Continuing their introductions of new products for the 2016 season (which began with the Japanther cool weather cycling shoes a few days ago), winter cycling specialists 45NRTH have announced the details of their flagship Wölvhammer winter cycling boots.

Completely redesigned for this model year, the 2016 Wölvhammer retains many of the functional elements of the original boot while improving design and style.

The vision for the Wölvhammer transcended traditional cycling footwear and originated from the conceptual standpoint of a mountaineering boot. This inspiration remains in the newly redesigned Wölvhammer. 45NRTH removed the outer zipper and velcro in favor of a lace-up design with a gusseted tongue to keep wet winter weather out and warmth in. They redesigned the power strap to remove the restrictive D-ring and make it easy to grab with gloves.

Rounding out the outside design, the full grain leather and ballistic nylon CORDURA® shell is extremely durable and adds some style. On the toe, they've added a protective rubber toe cap to help protect from impacts, abrasion and moisture. Beneath the shell, the waterproof membrane provides protection from the elements while allowing your feet to breath. The dedicated hook on the toe box pairs perfectly with the Bergraven Gaiters for when the snow gets deep. The cleat mounting area is compatible with Shimano SPD pedals, and other pedals that use a similar 2-bolt mounting system.

On the inside, the insulation package is maxed out with 200-gram Primaloft ECO Gold and fleece lining to help wick moisture to keep your feet dry and comfortable. Carrying over from the previous years, the NASA approved Aerogel® insulation in the footbed blocks cold transfer from the cleats keeping your feet warm down to 0ºF.

Look for the new 45NRTH Wölvhammer winter cycling boots in all three Century Cycles stores this fall! $324.99 per pair.
