The Decade is the perennial favourite amongst the most diehard riders. Northwave's best selling boot, this all mountain boot has the soul to take the tough days of a real rider with its thermo-welding and double crossbow sole for dampening heavy landings.
Built into the exterior of your boot, the Heel Bumper guards against abrasion, wear, and tear, and will give your boot extra reinforcement over its lifetime.
Advanced lining material constructed of Thermo-Fit Foam enhances target fit zones that can be customised instantly with a heater or over time from natural body heat for the perfect fit. Malleable fit areas are anatomically designed and reinforced with injected memory foam for better fit retention and comfort for your feet. Brand new webbing on the liner, and with loops that have been positioned on the edges of the liner, exclusive tongue side-cut naturally adapts to your instep, permitting the most custom fit, and distributing power transmission of equally through the surface of the liner make this fit unique. Updated Liner Webbing: Northwave analysed their athletes’ movements to avoid uncomfortable pressure points and place the padding only where necessary and at the right thickness to create the perfect interface, even matching the binding’s ankle strap. Velcro Power strap for superior fit: it gives an extra prop on the upper part of the liner providing a more secure liner closure supported by the liner lace lock. The Contour Cushion Footbed consists on two EVA: one green and one black. The green part, more rigid, maintains the stability of your foot while the black part absorbs the strongest impacts.
The second generation of Crossbow takes the weightlessness and softness of its unique EVA compound and is updated with the ultimate Double Crossbow system, which results in the best performing sole on the market with four different grip areas. The new crossbow system provides a perfect balance of power transmission and cushioning. This particular outsole design is developed to allow maximum flexibility and the excellent feel throughout your foot.
The Super Lace SL Speed Lacing System allows the closure of two different boot areas, the quarter part, and the collar part, in order to enable you to select the perfect feeling on each part and improve comfort and foot stability. Your boot will be closed quickly and will stay tight and perform all day. The 540° Heel Retention System passes the boot laces through pre-curved lace loops which help to minimize friction. When the laces are pulled to close the boot, they are simultaneously pulling the webbing where the lace loops are linked tight increasing heel stability. This mechanism is a result of the webbing passing through a hole from the side of the boot tightening the liner over the ankle area. The more the lace is pulled the more power will be transferred to the ankle area, increasing heel retention performance and foot stability.
Please take care to measure your feet accurately. Snowboard boots are made in either US or Mondopoint (cm) sizes.
For your Mondopoint Size, measure your larger foot in centimetres with your heel against a hard surface.
Please consider that your usual European (EU) size, may be different in a snowboard boot.
When your boots arrive, if they feel tight, don't panic! Snowboard Boots have foam liners which will wear in over time.
Northwave Boots are comfortable, warm and most importantly will take your snowboarding to the next level. The boots have been hand crafted in Italy for the last 20 years and are of the highest possible quality.
