45NRTH Introduces Updated Winter Cycling Boots

45NRTH has announced updates to its Wölvhammer and Wølfgar boots
just in time for winter weather. Here’s the full news release from our friends at 45NRTH.

Wölvhammer

Wölvhammer has been redesigned from the sole up to deliver more functionality and warmth—all while weighing in as the lightest Wölvhammer we’ve ever made.
 
The new Wölvhammer is designed for both on- and off-bike use. The three-piece sole uses a stiff, nylon shank in the cleat bed to improve pedaling efficiency, while EVA foam keeps things flexible enough to make hike-a-bike a lot less miserable if you have to dismount. The rubber outsole is equipped with anti-slip microglass inserts for traction on frozen lakes and other slippery surfaces. Wölvhammer also includes a removable cleat plate so you can ride comfortably with either clipless or flat pedals.
Wölvhammer’s two-boot construction is warmer and allows for faster drying. On multi-day bikepacking expeditions, remove the Primaloft-insulated liner boot and let it dry out overnight to start each day with warm, dry feet. The lightweight outer shell boot has waterproof construction and strategically-placed Aerogel insulation to seal out the elements when you’re plowing through deep snow, pedaling into an arctic headwind, or swapping stories around an impromptu campfire with your friends.
 
Wölvhammer is available now in sizes from 36 to 50.

Retail: $325.00 USD

Originating from the conceptual standpoint of a mountaineering boot, the new and evolved Wölvhammer is lighter, more comfortable, and grippier. The overhauled design features a removable synthetic liner and a three-piece proprietary bottom assembly compatible with flat and clipless pedals. When the cold winter creeps in, Wölvhammer has you covered.

  • Removable synthetic liner boot for quick drying.
  • 3-piece proprietary bottom assembly is lighter, warmer offers more walking traction.
  • Aerogel insulation blocks cold cleats and allows use of preferred insoles without   sacrificing warmth.
UPPER Coated microfiber with ballistic nylon underlays and ®Techtuff toe outside of a waterproof-breathable membrane.
MIDSOLE 3/4 length fiberglass-injected nylon nested inside EVA foam for reduced weight, added comfort and increased traction.
OUTSOLE 45NRTH real rubber outsole with anti-slip microglass rubber lugs, flat pedal and 2-bolt compatible. Comes with removable cleat plate for flat pedal use.
INSULATION 200g Primaloft quilted inside removable liner boot; 2mm aerogel blanket under the foot to thermally block metal cleats
CLOSURE Single-zone BOA M3 mid-power reel and lacing system
LASTS XX-wide last with tall toe box for extra insulation on top of the foot
SIZES Mens wide 36 – 50 (no size 49), full sizes only
SUGGESTED TEMP RANGE 0 (18 C) to 25 F (-3 C)

Wølfgar

Wølfgar, our most extreme winter boot, now utilizes the BOA fit system. BOA distributes pressure more evenly than laces for a comfortable fit and easy adjustment. Now you can dial in the perfect fit mid-ride on the side of the trail without removing your gloves. With Aerogel insulation under the foot and over the toe, a removable merino liner boot, studdable Vibram® sole, and waterproof materials and construction, Wølfgar is still suited to riding in the harshest winter conditions, down to -25ºF.
 
Wølfgar is available now in sizes from 38 to 50.

Retail: $475.00 USD

The most technologically advanced winter cycling boot on the planet, made with NASA-grade insulation materials. Whether you’re heading out on a multi-day expedition or groomed singletrack session, Wølfgar provides comfort down to -25ºF and keeps out the harshest of winter days and nights. Need a cozy companion for brutally cold winter days, Wølfgar is your answer.

  • Double boot construction with removable 4mm wool felt liner
  • 400g Primaloft shell boot
  • Aerogel under the foot and over the toe for unmatched thermal protection
  • Carbon midsole and Vibram rubber outsole to reduce conductive heat loss
  • Dual-Zone BOA closure to isolate fit settings between ankle and toes

Twice the insulation of Wölvhammer means you can brave the most extreme winter conditions and never worry about your feet. The removable felted wool liner boot wicks moisture away from your feet while retaining its insulating properties. On long rides, carry a spare liner to swap out for a fresh, dry pair. Precise placement of aerogel under the foot and over the toe blocks cold and wind from chilling your feet. The 2-bolt compatible Vibram® outsole is custom-studdable to claw into the ice when things get slick. With Wølfgar, there are no more excuses.

UPPER Coated microfiber with ballistic nylon underlays and ®Techtuff toe outside of a waterproof-breathable membrane.
MIDSOLE full-length carbon fiber to minimize conductive heat loss and maximize pedaling efficiency.
OUTSOLE Real rubber made by Vibram® for 45NRTH, accepts 45NRTH concave studs
INSULATION 400g Primaloft behind microfiber upper; 2mm aerogel blanket under the foot and over the toe to thermally block cold cleats and add toe warmth.
CLOSURE Dual-zone BOA M3 mid-power reel and lacing system to isolate fit settings between ankle and toes.
LASTS XX-wide last with tall toe box for extra insulation on top of the foot
SIZES Mens wide 38 – 50 (no size 49), full sizes only
SUGGESTED TEMP RANGE -25°F (-31°C) to 10°F (-12°C)

    You will never get cold feet in a Wolfgar. They are THE cold weather boot. -5F to +5F and perfectly comfortable. My experience is with the previous generation and my only complaint is that they are too stiff – very difficult to walk in. And in extreme conditions, you will spend time walking. The sole does not flex. Perhaps they’ve fixed this, but I don’t know. The Wolvrhammers are a close second. Not as resistant to the ultra cold, but very pleasant to walk in.

    45Nrth needs to come out with a racing boot – with the cold resistant abilities of the Wolvhammer, but with as much weight shaved off as possible. It is still a relatively heavy boot.

    but I’m here to tell you, there’s something else
    The After World
    A World of never ending happiness, where you can always see the sun
    Day
    Or
    Night…
