The SLW3 twist closure allows for gradual loosening or complete opening with the simple push of a button - depending on the situation. The exclusive Anatomical Arch Support® made of TPU allows the shoe to adapt perfectly to the arch of the foot and makes it the ideal sole for every foot type. The asymmetrical lacing takes pressure off the arch of the foot, giving the shoe its optimal fit.

Morph Carbon 12AAS sole
This sole offers you direct power transfer to the pedal. Its full carbon insert in the pedal area is extremely light and allows good ventilation, while the Anatomical Arch Support technology, made of TPU and integrated between the sole and upper shoe, ideally supports any type of foot on long rides.
The new SLW3, developed by X-Dial, is absolutely unique and offers ultra-fast, micrometer-precise fastening. This compact mechanism is very easy and intuitive to use. Simply push the button for step-by-step opening - or lift the button to completely open the shoe instantly.
Speedplay adapter (optional)
The distance between foot and pedal has never been so small. Northwave, in collaboration with Speedplay, has developed and patented an exclusive adapter that, with its thickness of only 0.5 mm compared to the 3 mm thick traditional Speedplay adapters, guarantees maximum power transmission to the pedals. Made of nylon with a thin aluminium plate (8.5 g less weight), the adapter adapts to the shape of the sole. As a result, the distance between the foot and the pedal is constantly minimal in any position, without taking up extra space and extra weight, as is the case with systems without adapters.
