45NRTH 2017 Wolvhammer Winter Cycling Boot

45NRTH updated the 2017 Wolvhammer Winter cycling boot  to include a new larger fit, that is closer to that of the Wolfgar than the previous model and a new outsole that is better on ice thanks to its Hypergrip design.

 The outsole for the Wolvhammer has been re-designed for 2017 and 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 Wolvhammer, the same outsole construction that is used on the 45NRTH Japanther, but with deeper lugs for better snow traction along with improved stability on ice, because if you are riding in wet weather that is below freezing, 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 Wolvhammer winter cycling boots are 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 2017 Wolvhammer does not include an insert to be used with flat pedals.

Wolvhammer continues to use the Aerogel insoles to insulate the foot from the metal cleat which can create a cold spot on even the most insulated of shoes. Aerogel is compression resistant insulation that continues to insulate even under the hardest of pedal strokes. Should you need custom support additional insoles should fit over the Aerogel insoles.

If your winter riding adventures take you into areas of deep snow that require hike-a-bike to get through the really deep stuff, the Wolvhammer has toe hooks that can be paired with the 45NRTH Bergraven Gaiters for knee high protection and additional insulation around the calf and knees.

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. 45NRTH does have an online fit guide to help make selecting the proper size a little easier, so grab your favorite socks and click the following link here. Even though the 2016 and 2017 Wolvhammer boots look visually similar they are completely different when it comes to size. The 2017 Wolvhammer boot is wider and slightly longer that the out going model, with a fit that is closer to the Wolfgar.

questions about the

45NRTH 2017 Wolvhammer Winter Cycling Boot

asked by: A Visitor
Is wind chill a factor with these boots?
answered by: canteau
Generally speaking wind chill only effects exposed skin or areas of the body not covered by a wind blocking material such as tights without Windblocker or a wind proof outer shell. If you can eliminate the wind from taking body heat from your insulating layer, it doesn't become as much of a factor like the actual ambient temperature does.

The leather/Condura upper does a pretty good job itself in blocking the wind, but is aided by a wind and waterproof membrane for additional protection.
asked by: A Visitor
What is the temp range for this boot that it is good for?
answered by: canteau
45NRTH rates the Wolvhammer cycling boot temperature range as 0-25 degrees Fahrenheit.

Review of the 45NRTH 2017 Wolvhammer Winter Cycling Boot:
Fantastic winter riding boot. Great fit. Works with my SPD cleat really well. Also works well on a large, studded flat pedal. Very warm. If it's going to be like 10 degrees and snowing I throw some toe warmers in too just to be safe.

Yes, I would recomend this to a friend.

Review of the 45NRTH 2017 Wolvhammer Winter Cycling Boot:
I am a bike commuter who, on occasion, likes to ride when it is really cold--10 degrees F. is about my bottom limit. My commute usually starts at 5:15 A.M., and is 16 1/2 miles each way. Have been using the 45nrth Fasterkatts for the last two years, but found that my feet would get cold around 20 degrees, or so, towards the end of my commute (I know they are rated down to 25 F.). Purchased these Wolvhammer boots for the really cold commutes. WOW! I love these boots, and my feet stay nice and warm! Have used them down to around 10 degrees F., and they are great. They are very easy to get on and off your feet--much easier than the Fasterkatts. For commuting, they have met my expectations spectacularly. On a weekend ride, I spent over 2 hours in them at temperatures between 10 deg. F., and 29 deg. F., with a pair of Merino wool socks, and my feet never even got a bit cold. Nice, happy, warm feet for the entire ride. I liked these boots so much, that I ordered a second pair for my son, who also enjoys cold-weather cycling. He has experienced the same satisfaction with his pair as I have with mine.

Way to go 45nrth--you just keep getting better and better!

Big fan of 45nrth in Oklahoma.

Summed up: Super boot for cold-weather commuting! Have found they keep my feet warm at 10 deg. F., for an hour and fifteen min. commute.

Yes, I would recomend this to a friend.

Review of the 45NRTH 2017 Wolvhammer Winter Cycling Boot:
My feet tend to get cold, tried moderate cold temp Sidi boot and neoprene covers for temps < 30 oF. Wolvhammer works much better. I got it a little big to accommodate thicker socks. Easy to put on and cinch, and take off. I sometimes use ordinary plastic bags as vapor barriers to keep interior dry. Cleat has no issues with XT spd.

Yes, I would recomend this to a friend.
