They’re the favoured cross-country shoe of Jolanda Neff, and they’ve had an impressive update for the 2019 season. Namely, the biggest change comes in the form of Northwave’s new XFrame 2 technology, consisting of two ratchet dials and a wraparound tongue for even weight distribution.
In this video, Joe gives the Ghost Pro shoes a thorough examination, since he’s going to be doing his fair share of racing in them this year.
What do you think? Is this the next top performing XC shoe? Or has Northwave missed the mark? Let us know in the comments.
Mildred’s a utilitarian cyclist at heart, determined to do everything on two wheels, whether it’s shopping, commuting or moving house. She’s spent the past three years volunteering as a mechanic and workshop coordinator at the Bristol Bike Project, and now sits on its board of directors. Her expertise in bikes — and what people want out of them — comes from working in real-world bike shops and learning the ins and outs of the industry. At home on slicks and knobblies alike, Mildred’s ideal ride covers long distances through remote countryside, on mixed terrain that offers a bit of crunch. She’s easily won over by steel frames coupled with a 650B/plus-tyre combo, and is currently riding a Surly Bridge Club, while training for a 600km audax on a Triban Women’s RC 520.
