Northwave Boots 2010-2011
29 Mar, 2010
Northwave is no stranger to snowboarding; they’re boots have been on many snowboarders feet over the years and they continue to reign in as a snowboard boot company that’s been in business since 1991. Now they own Drake and Bakoda but their knowledge continues to expand in snowboard boots that enhance your riding experience.
For 10-11 Northwave is introducing their T-track lacing system which is now featured on the men’s T-track boot and caliber boot and women’s caliber boot. The T-track system allows for a simple and immediate way to open and close the boot. They also have the Super lace SL system which is a speed entry system that allows the closure of two different boot areas allowing the perfection of your own taste in the boot tightness. Other new boot technologies are the ultralight sole which makes their outsole 50% lighter compared to a traditional snowboard outsole, their 540 heel system helps transit a stronger power of closure in the upper part of the foot and ankle, giving less heel lift in the boot and their new carbon fork in the rear of the boot that increases the stiffness without compromising the comfort or mobility of the whole boot.
