NorthWave Veloce Extreme both shoes Thanks to close work with an hour and Olympic champion Filippo Ganna, the Veloce Extreme is the new top-end performance road shoe for NorthWave. The shoes are 100% Made in Italy and boast not only a new name but an assortment of new features. This new fast footwear has a redesigned sole and enclosure system that claims to engage more muscle, meaning more watts.
There is a lot to unpack here, so let’s start with the name… NorthWave Veloce Extreme – What is it?
The Veloce Extreme dethrones the Extreme Pro 3 as NorthWave’s top-tier road racing shoe. The Veloce Extreme has been discreetly working under the World Tours’ most prolific riders for most of the 2023 season, with subtle tweaks for production.
NorthWave’s new road race shoe boasts hundreds of hours of testing with 50+ professional riders. The testing consists of intense lap work on ergo trainers and real-world testing on some of the sport’s most iconic roads.
The final product is a shoe that can increase riders’ comfort while giving them a better pedaling platform, taking advantage of all muscle activation. Introducing the Powershape HT
