When splitboarding and exploring the backcountry, crampons are a necessity to travel securely on snow and ice. That's why Northwave built the new Domain CR boots with a crampon-compatible Vibram sole. The Super Lace system with two different boot areas closure allows you to get the perfect fit and feel, while the thermo-mouldable, supportive TF3 Liner will keep your feet warm and comfy all day long.
The new freeride-dedicated CR sole is made in collaboration with Vibram® to provide superior grip and stability while hiking to allow riders to traverse frozen slopes and gnarly ascents while mountaineering. Front and rear crampon compatibility make this sole unique for extremely technical and challenging hikes. It is compatible with step-in crampons, strap-on crampons, hybrid crampons.
Advanced lining material constructed of Thermo-Fit Foam enhances target fit zones that can be customized 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 analyzed 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.
With the 540° Heel Retention System, the boot laces pass 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.
The Domain CR also come with Domain Reinforcement, an advanced structure that has been specifically redesigned in the outsole construction to gain an even more efficient power transmission and superior support in all-mountain riding. Thanks to a reinforced TPU arch that envelopes the foot from the sole up to the calf, you will have a perfect connection with the binding and the board, and all the progressive support required.
The Super Lace is a speed lacing system that allows the closure of two different boot areas, the quarter part, and the collar part, 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 long.
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.
