Omega heel provides excellent fit and has vent ports at the bottom to keep feet cool and dry
Ultra-light and ultra-rigid Carbon Light Sole has low stack height and is stiff for great power transfer
SBS closure system keeps perfect fit and maximizes power
Comments about Northwave Typhoon Evo SBS Road Shoes:
I have a 18 month old pair of Aerlites, great fit, great stiffness, terrible ratchet buckles and straps. The ratchet breaks continually and grooves in the straps wear out in a few months so that it slips and you cannont tigthen enough. Calling the new distributor for Northwave in US resulted them directing me to a local shop even though I did not buy the shoe there. The web is litered with this problem by other Northwave purchasers, I would not recommend buying these shoes. I am going back to Sidi for sure.
