In the depths of winter, there's nothing quite like layering up on a Sunday morning for a nice long, gentle ride. Ideally, the weather will be a few degrees about freezing with clear skies and the low, hazy sun that won't trouble the frosty grass. Well, that's the scenario we'd like.

Back in the land of reality and most winter rides are spent trying to keep hands and feet from freezing off! The roads are usually covered in grit and once your feet get wet, they're doomed to going numb.

Winter boots are a great option for dealing with the majority of winter riding here in the UK. The Northwave Flash GTX is a lightweight option that can be layered depending on the weather, much like a jacket.

For the majority of winter weather where it's not too cold, we'd pair these with standard cycling socks, switching them out for woollier socks when the temperatures really drop.

The shoes are made using a carbon sole, so you're not losing any performance. A water and windproof Gore-Tex® Pique membrane works to keep your feet warm. It'll also see off a good amount of rain and wheel-spray, but for really rainy days, we'd recommend layering a waterproof overshoe on top.

Northwave's own SLW2 dial takes care of retention, spreading pressure evenly across the top of the foot. The Flash GTX also offers a bit of visibility with reflective inserts all around the shoe.

About Wiggle

Wiggle started out as a small independent bike shop called ‘Butler Cycles’ - based in Portsmouth, UK.

Mitch Dall, the founder of Wiggle, bought the shop in 1995; it had already been trading for over 50 years. After the purchase, the shop moved premises, but remained a bike retailer; it also changed names to “Bikes @ Butlers” to reflect a new interest in online trading.

‘Wiggle’ officially started trading on 28th May 1999, after investment from founders Mitch Dall and Harvey Jones. Harvey was an internet enthusiast, and was keen to develop a business that would have a strong online presence.

In 2002, a larger base in Portsmouth was identified, as an opportunity to take the young and fun online sports retailer to the next level. Wiggle continued to experience impressive growth in the 2000’s, and was adding one new brand a week to keep up with consumer demand.

In February 2016, the merger of Wiggle and Chain Reaction Cycles was announced; combining the two largest companies in the UK online cycle retail market. Wiggle remains a separate brand and website from Chain Reaction Cycles, despite the two companies being integrated in terms of stock holding and finances. The combined Wiggle CRC group generates an annual revenue of over £400 million.
