Cruise through winter on your bike no problem with 45NRTH. Their line-up of premium cold-weather cycling gear, including boots, apparel, and more, will give you unparalleled performance throughout the winter season. Keep reading to learn about some awesome updates they’ve made to their 2020 collection!
45NRTH went back to the drawing board for the latest version of Wolvhammer cycling boot and took a bunch of ideas from a mountaineering boot, which meant that it had to be light, comfortable, and grippy underfoot. And, they nailed it!
Making contact with the ground is a flexible, real rubber outsole with grippy micro-glass lugs that give comfort and traction on slippery surfaces. The EVA midsole provides added insulation and reduces weight and nylon stiffeners transfer more of your energy.
Inside the boot is a removable liner that provides better insulation and allows you to get it out in the open to air out and quickly dry. Under the liner, above the sole of the boot is a layer of non-compressible Aerogel insulation that blocks the cold from coming up from below, especially if you are using clipless cleats, while still allowing you to choose whatever aftermarket insoles that you prefer, if any. Wolvhammer is rated for between 0° and 25°F!
Holding all of this together and locking your foot firmly in place is a single zone BOA closure with a gusseted tongue to keep all of that warmth in and all of the winter elements out! Remember, BOA offers a lifetime warranty on their dials and cables so you can rest assured that they have your back! The entire package features light, supple, waterproof materials to keep you riding for hours, no matter the conditions.
Wølfgar is more than just a riding boot. This thing is the most technologically advanced winter riding boot, ever! And, it has to be because riders are taking this boot out into the elements and into down as low as -25°F!
Using NASA-grade insulation materials, Wølfgar delivers comfort on those super cold rides. One aspect to that insulation is Aerogel that is placed under the foot and over the toe to separate your foot from the cold coming up from pedals and from the wind blowing directly at your toes. The carbon fiber midsole and Vibram rubber outsole also help to reduce conductive heat loss while providing great grip on ice.
Technically, Wølfgar is a double boot with the waterproof outer shell providing 400g Primaloft® insulation along with a removable, 4mm felt liner working together to keep your feet warm dry, and supported.
Closing up this whole thing is a Dual-Zone Boa closure that lets you adjust your fit and tightness between your ankle and your toes.
Made from a blend of polyester and Merino wool, the Naughtvind Bibs will keep you warm and dry due to the natural insulation and moisture-wicking properties of these materials. The Naughtvind Bibs are built without a chamois so you can wear your favorite riding shorts or bibs to fully dial in your comfort.
Wind, water, and abrasion-resistant panels are placed in strategic positions on the Naughtvind Bibs to keep you warm and dry while pockets are placed where they can easily be accessed while out on a ride. The “4/5” length is designed to fall right at the top of the 45NRTH Wolvhammer or Wølfgar boots to eliminate the discomfort that can come when you try to fit all of that excess material into a boot.
The Naughtvind Bibs can be worn on their own in milder, drier temps or paired with the Naughtvind Jacket and Pants when the conditions get crappy!
The Doubleweave material of the 45NRTH Naughtvind Jacket provides breathability, stretch, and extreme protection from the elements so you stay comfortable and warm on the inside. And, the grid knit fleece side panels offer even more breathability where you need it most!
Doubleweave main fabric provides the best combination of weather protection, breathability & stretch, while grid knit fleece side panels allow even more breathability. All of this is delivered in a jacket that is light and without too much bulk. There’s even black reflective material placed in key areas to keep visibil when you are riding in the dark, which is pretty much always in winter!
The asymmetric zipper is designed to sit off to the side of the center of your body, allowing the collar to come up and provide extra face protection without the zipper rubbing on your chin! The three rear access pockets let you stash away those necessary supplies to keep you riding. There’s even a strategically placed chest pocket positioned to not get in the way of the straps of your backpack if you ride with one.
Made from the same Doubleweave Fabric as the Naughtvind Jacket, the Naughtvind Pants breathe, stretch, and protect you from every kind of weather you may experience during the colder seasons.
Zippered vents at the thighs allows you to better regulate your bodyheat and shed excess heat and moisture as needed while the zippered rear pockets keep your belongings safe and close at hand!
There are hook-and-loop closures at the waist and at the bottom of the legs for easy adjustment and the slim ankle pipe fits well over 45NRTH boots without creating too much bulk that can get caught in your chain!
The Cobrafist Pogies feature he Cordura® rubberized shell and water-resistant membrane block wind and precipitation without sagging down and into an inconvenient position with the help of a specially designed bar-end plug.
The 400g Primaloft® insulation keeps your hands warm on the bars without the need for heavy (if ANY) gloves! This allows you to have better access to your controls because you aren’t fighting with bulky winter gloves. There are zippered vents that you can open to regulate heat if your hands get too toasty and even internal pockets to store snacks or supplies!
The Draugenklaw Pogies offer super lightweight performance for riders who don’t need all of the insulation that the Cobrafist provides.
The Draugenklaw Pogie is designed for those milder days that don’t need as much insulation or for riders with naturally warm hands. The softshell fabric features a weather-resistant outer and a cozy fleece liner. This inner lining is even made up of a polyester fiber called Far-Infrared Yarn that accumulates and holds in more heat than regular fleece!
