ADVERTORIAL With its Alpine roots, Northwave’s Enduro and Downhill kit is designed to deliver

With its headquarters nestled at the base of the Italian Alps, you could say that Northwave has mountains in its blood. The brand cut its teeth creating specialist snowboarding boots and bindings back in the ‘seventies, and since the ‘nineties it’s drawn inspiration from its local bike and snow Mecca to produce an innovative mountain biking kit that’s designed to deliver unmatchable performance, quality, design and style.

It’s no surprise then, that the recent launch of its new spring/summer collection sees the brand pouring its energy into creating the perfect kit for all types of off-road action, from enduro to downhill and everything in between.

As the spiritual home of gravity sports from X-Games and the Olympics, to the World Enduro Series, the Alps provide the perfect setting for Northwave to design, develop, test and refine its mountain biking offerings. Taking its wares to the slopes and trails, and tweaking them at its in-house technical research facility in nearby Montebelluna, Northwave’s roots give it a unique advantage. It channels its Alpine heritage into its kit, with a focus on innovation, quality, attention to detail, performance, a refined aesthetic and sustainable development.
