The Northwave Legend SL is everything you expect out of a purebred freestyle boot; hyper-light and comfortable. This boot maintains the type of versatility, durability, flex, and comfort that the straing a truly innovative rider demands.
TF2 Liner: New advanced lining material in Thermo-Fit Foam with target fit zones that can catalyze instantly with a heater or over time from natural body heat. Malleolus area anatomically designed and reinforced with injected memory foam for better retention and comfort on the feet. Brand new webbing on the liner: the loops have been positioned on the edges of the liner, while the exclusive tongue side-cut naturally adapts to the instep, thus permitting the closest fit, and distributing power of transmission all over the liner surface. Northwave analyzed the athletes’ movements so to avoid the contactpoints and place the padding only where needed and at the right thickness to create the perfect interface, even matching the binding’s ankle strap. Power strap for an even better fit: it gives an extra prop on the upper part of the liner and provides a more homogeneous liner closure supporting the liner lace lock.Comfortable EVA footbed with side supports for better thermal insulation and for shock absorption.
540° Heel Retention System: The boot laces pass through pre-curved lace loops which helps to minimize friction. When the laces are pulled to close the boot, they are simultaneously pulling the webbing where the lace loops are linked tight increasing heel stability. This mechanism is a result of the webbing passing through a hole from the side of the boot tightening the liner over the ankle area. The more the lace is pulled the more power will be transferred through the ankle area, increasing heel retention performance and foot stability.
Super Lace SL: A Speed Lacing System that allows the closure of two different boot areas, the quarter part and the collar part, in order to allow you to select the perfect feeling on each part and improve comfort and foot stability. Your boot will be closed quickly and will stay tight and perform all day.
Thermo Welding: At the forefront with the application of Thermowelded Piping, Northwave has perfected its usage. This technology brings us distinct advantages both in terms of enabling us to integrate different materials and maintain an durable and resistant seamless outsole. This is particularly important in the ankle where there is no interruption of the upper boot technology bringing you progressive support from the heel to the calf. The visible asymmetrical y differentiates the three zones in the boot: it provides a stronger support on the outside for increased control when pressing, buttering and spinning; more flexibility on lateral inner boot; and lighter still above.
Lightstep: The new Lightstep Outsole is the result of dedicated research and development seeking high-performing materials with a specific weight lower than average sole materials. The outsole is now 35% lighter compared to a traditional
