45NRTH Cycling Technology
45NRTH is dedicated to pushing the boundaries of cold weather cycling performance through innovative technology. Explore our range of advanced cycling solutions designed to deliver unmatched traction, insulation, and protection.
Concave Studs for Superior Traction
Our Concave Studs feature a two-piece construction method, with a concave carbide tip on the crown. This design creates an incredibly sharp attack angle, providing unparalleled traction. As the carbide crown wears, it sharpens the edge further, continuously enhancing acceleration, braking, and cornering performance.
Carbide-Aluminum Studs for Durability and Performance
Our Carbide-Aluminum Studs, consisting of an aluminum base that's lighter than stainless steel, reducing rolling weight. Paired with a carbide tip rivaling the hardness of diamond, this combination delivers optimal durability and performance.
Steel Carbide Studs for Cost-Efficiency and Performance
Our Steel Carbide Studs, utilizing the same two-piece construction method as our aluminum counterparts, offer excellent performance and longevity. They are an economical choice for 45NRTH's 27tpi tire collection.
XL Concave Studs for Unmatched Traction
Our XL Concave Studs, featuring a carbide tip with a concave crown for a sharp attack angle. As the carbide crown wears, it creates an even sharper edge, continuously improving acceleration, braking, and cornering performance as it ages.
Aerogel Insulation for Ultimate Warmth
Utilized by NASA, aerogel is an ultra-thin, compression-resistant, waterproof insulator with unparalleled thermal conductivity. It excels in keeping you warm in extreme conditions, without needing loft, making it an ideal insulator for cold contact points on your bicycle.
Waterproof-Breathable Membrane for All-Weather Protection
Our ultra-thin waterproof, breathable membrane, positioned behind our textile shells, keeps you dry and warm even in the harshest conditions. It blocks external liquid while allowing internal vapor to escape for thermal and moisture regulation.
Anti-Slip Microglass Rubber for Enhanced Traction
Our rubber compound, infused with microscopic glass fibers, increases friction on slippery surfaces. This technology boosts traction on ice, wet wood, linoleum, and wet metal, enhancing safety.
Siping for Improved Traction and Comfort
Our larger tread lugs feature tiny grooves that increase traction and provide a more comfortable ride quality. This enhancement benefits acceleration, braking, and cornering.
Merino Wool for Warmth and Comfort
Merino wool, known for its fine, soft texture and excellent warmth-to-weight ratio, is a superb insulator in harsh conditions. It can absorb moisture without feeling wet and has natural antibacterial properties.
Tubeless Ready for a Supple Ride
Our tubeless-ready bead offers better contact with the rim and a secure tubeless seal, reducing wheel weight by up to 300 grams per wheel for a more comfortable ride.
Softshell Protection for Harsh Winters
We incorporate Schoeller® softshell fabrics into our clothing system, striking the perfect balance between weather protection, breathability, and stretch for harsh winter conditions.
Lightweight Design for High Performance
Using premium materials, we design all our products for an ideal balance of lightweight construction and high-performance functionality.
Heat Regulating for Temperature Management
Our softgoods feature breathable fabrics and innovative features like zippered armpit vents to provide excellent temperature management, preventing overheating.
Premium Insulation for Comfort
In our footwear, we utilize premium materials such as aerogel, merino wool, and Primaloft® for warmth, comfort, and moisture-wicking during long rides in harsh conditions.
Carbon Fiber Outsole for Enhanced Performance
Our lightweight carbon fiber outsole provides stiffness and insulation against conductive heat loss under the foot.
Braced Lugs for Extra Tire Strength
Our braced lugs add strength to tire knobs in all directions, enhancing traction in challenging terrain and conditions.
This sole is designed to interface with flat platform pedals.
2-Hole Mountain Shoe
This sole is designed to interface with a 2-bolt cleat for a secure ride.
This sole is designed to interface with a 3-bolt cleat for a secure ride.
