45NRTH Ragnarok MTN Cycling Shoe - Men's
Ragnarok MTN Shoe
Whether you're pedaling through snow crusted singletrack on the cusp of early winter, or making your commute on a bitter morning with drenched roads, the 45NRTH Ragnarok MTN Shoe keeps your feet warm and dry in mild to moderate winter conditions. It's not an insulated fatbiking boot, though you could use them for fatbiking with the right kit. Instead, it's a performance cycling shoe with a wind and water-resistant membrane, making riding more enjoyable when it's cold and wet outside.
The shoes are constructed of a microfiber upper paired with a neoprene cuff that shields your feet from the elements, with reinforcements on the toe and heel to resist abrasion. The protective membrane provides warmth and a high level of wind and water resistance, but is not completely waterproof. This allows a bit of breathability and moisture regulation, ensuring your foot stays comfortable during more intense aerobic efforts. For extremely wet conditions, 45NRTH recommends covering the ankle with waterproof rain paints for the best level of protection.
The uppers are joined to a reinforced nylon sole for efficient power transfer, with a rubber outsole infused with microscopic glass fibers to increase traction on slippery surfaces. The closure system is a Boa dial with micro-adjustments to help you dial in the perfect fit. Lastly, they are compatible with 2-bolt cleats only, and recommended down to temperatures of about 25-degrees Fahrenheit per 45NRTH.

45nrth Ragnarok Mtn Mens Shoe
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
I purchased this shoe as a fall mud/winter snow fat biking shoe. I know there are a lot of really nice full on winter boots for fat biking but I decided I wanted something that would be more versatile and that I could use in sloppy wet conditions as well as snow. I have not been disappointed. As a snow riding shoe the Ragnarok is amazing. It is fully waterproof, and has the neoprene is velcro top to seal the elements out of the shoe. They are also very warm and my feet have yet to get cold on 2 hour plus adventures. My brother rides with full on Lake winter boots and has a hard time clipping in and out of his pedals because the stiffness of the boot coming up so high on his ankle. The ragnarok is almost as easy to use clips as a summer riding shoe. These things are amazing, and comfortable and best of all, you can put studs on them!! I didn't even know this, but I ride with studded tires and you can easily forget that your standing on ice when you need to get off of the bike, so that fact alone makes this shoe go from great to amazing! very happy with the purchase and the quality 45nrth has rapidly become my go to brand for all things winter cycling!
