Northwave Tribe MTB Shoes - 2019
Northwave have crashed the flat pedal mountain bike party with this, their Tribe MTB shoes, designed to give unrivalled grip when you're getting loose and lairy on the trails and featuring a Michelin outsole for awesome grip. The Tribe is one of two new flat pedal mountain bike shoes and in this case, the shoe gets impeccable performance but with a more street inspired design so it's great on the trails or taking on the urban scene. A suede upper is paired with large mesh panels so you get a light and airy shoe but it's also burly too, with abrasion-resistant toe and heel rubber print, a reinforced toe cap and a cushioned mesh tongue. The lace-up design keeps weight down, simplicity up and an elasticated holder keeps them safely away from the chain and cranks.
The Tribe shoes feature a sole developed in conjunction with Michelin, guaranteeing you a rock solid platform when you're taking on technical trails and steep rocky and rooty chutes. Design elements from the Michelin Jet XCR tyre feature strongly matched with an incredibly sticky Gecko+ compound, the combination is a sure-fire, confidence inspiring, grippy winner in both wet and dry conditions. The tread itself provides stability on your flats with flexibility for a natural feel, extra grip centrally and secure control at the toes and heels.
