all about the

45NRTH Japanther Winter Cycling Shoe - MY18

The Japanther is 45NRTH's shoe that gets you through the cool and rainy seasons that leave your feet cold and wet in traditional cycling shoes. The water resistant membrane works with your moisture wicking socks to keep your feet dry from both perspiration and wet windy weather. 45NRTH rates the temperature for the Japanther at 25 to 45f (-3 to 7c) for most riders. 

The adjustable ankle of the Japanther keeps a secure fit and adjusts based on the layers you are wearing and is independent of the inner lacing system so that you don't need to compromise support to accommodate bulky cold weather tights and rain wear.

The outsole for the Japanther is something that you may over look when shopping for a cycling shoe because you aren't going to walking in them right? Well you shouldn't. 45NRTH incorporates their Hypergrip sole on the Japanther because if you are riding in wet weather that is in the low 30's ice is going to be an issue. Nothing is more embarrassing than falling at a red light or trail head due to an icy surface. Hypergrip soles combine a sticky rubber sole with siping and Hypergrip blocks that feature microglass for second to none traction on ice. If you need additional traction toe spikes can be used for additional traction on loose surfaces.

The 45NRTH Japanther winter cycling shoe is designed to work with most clipless pedals that use a 2-bolt cleat such as Crank Brothers, Time and Shimano. For some pedals you may need to use cleat shims for proper cleat engagement. When installing the cleats make sure to add a little grease to the threads to prevent rust.

The question we receive most often is should I buy the size I typically wear or go up a size? Some of that is going to depend on the thickness of the socks you wear or if you fall between whole sizes.
