For everything that trail throws at you

If you mountain bike enough, chances are you've had to hike-a-bike on more than one occasion. The Northwave Scorpius MTB S.R.S. features a one-piece, seamless upper and carbon reinforced rubber-lugged sole so that you'll move fast, on and off the bike. 

The uppers of the Scorpius S.R. S. shoes are a multi-layer Thermowelded construction with Northwave's Airflow System. The Thermoweld consists of a light microfiber polyurethane that has been coupled with large mesh vent inserts — the total thickness of the upper is the same as a traditional single-layer construction. Working in conjunction with this design is a series of vents that channel air into the sole to keep your feet from overheating. Because of the seamless uppers, Northwave is able to use an Integrated Heel System to hold your foot securely in the shoe. The Performance Advanced Footbed ensures that your foot is always in optimal pedaling position.

The sole of the Scorpius S.R.S. is the Jaws Carbon Reinforced sole. This sole is formed from a thermoplastic material that was enriched with carbon powder for added durability and stiffness. The bottom was given a series of rubber treads for maximum grip — even when running descents.

The Scorpius are secured to your feet using two hook and loop straps and a third S.R.S (Slim Ratchet System) strap. Forged from aluminum, the ratchet is micro-adjustable for a customized fit. It is also easy to replace if needed.

Northwave's Scorpius MTB S.R.S. are available in whole sizes from 36.0 to 39.0 and 46.0 to 48.0, and in whole and half sizes from 39.5 to 45.5. They come in four coloways: Red/black/white, White/black, Black/yellow fluo, and Orange fluo/black.

One versatile technical bike shoe

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: True to size

The shoe performed flawlessly both with cleats and without. Design allows rider to have enough grip both uphill and downhill. The ratchet system is brilliant allowing perfect fit every time. Cleats or not this shoe is worth every penny in my book.

Great value, runs small

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: Runs small
  • Size Bought: 46

I wear 11.5 shoes, and have very narrow feet. The 46 fits perfectly. On sale, these are a great deal for an MTB shoe with ratchet straps.

Nice mtb shoes and confortable

Excelentes tenis para Mtb a un muy buen precio, entrega rápida, súper cómodos y bonitos, muy pronto comprare otros

Hello, can I know your foot length? I'm about to buy this shoes in the same size you did.

Good shoes, like all my other Northwaves

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: 46

I am a Northwave homer. I have had 3 pairs going back to the Aerators and currently rotate two pairs of Extreme's for the road. I needed a new pair of mtb shoes and was told these fit like the Extreme's. When they arrived, they were correct and fit exactly like the Extreme's. I ordered the same size as my road shoes, 46. They have a narrow Italian last so I had to stretch them out a bit in the forefoot. They fit better now.

I have been using them for the last 6 weeks on a spin bike at work with SPD pedals. They are plenty stiff and are fine for my 60-90 minute winter training sessions 2-3x per week. The narrowness puts some light pressure on my toes, so they are not 100% optimal, but it's not enough annoyance to send them back so I'll keep wearing them.

The adjustment with the ratcheting buckle and the two velcro straps is good. I can get a good solid fit. If the forefoot was a little bit wider, like Northwaves used to be, these would be 5 stars.

If you have a narrow forefoot, you'd be hard pressed to find better shoes than Northwave's for the money.

Sizing advice

  • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
  • Fit: True to size

Do yourself a favor, DON'T USE the Northwave size chart on this site. If you know your Euro size, go with that. If not, use the Sidi size chart. I'm 10 US, 44 euro across the board. North wave chart said to go with 42.5. I got 43's and they fit small. I'll be returning for a 44, my normal size., you should consider taking the NW chart down, even if it is supplied by the manufacturer. It's terribly inaccurate.

I have some Northwave shoes that I have had for about five going on six years. The other day they just came apart. The soles just plain fell off, one day one, the next day the other. They have seen a good bit of water and mud. They were no the cheapest shoes(120 ish Euros on sale), but far from the most expensive.
My question is, is that about the life of these shoes or are they failing prematurely?

Best Answer

5 to 6 years in those conditions seems very reasonable. That's the expected life of most mtn shoes in that scenario.

Great wider fit

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I've had these for about 4 months now and have really liked them. I'm very picky about my shoe fit and went through about 10 different models and sizes. I have a slightly wider, mostly flat foot, and usually wear a 10.5. I ended up with the 44 in the Scorpius. These were a better fit for me than the Nirvana and the Extreme Tech, which were a very narrow fit. These were definitely wider than the Fi'zi:k Uomo and feel like much better quality than several Shimano models I tried.

Fairly stiff soles on these and nicely adjustable with the straps and ratchet strap. A bit lower profile and good traction on the soles. I use them with both my road and mountain bikes and feel like they cross over well. They are well ventilated and stay cool but I also find myself reaching for the shoe covers in cooler temps.

Looking at purchasing these for road biking....

Looking at purchasing these for road biking. I haven't had a pair of clip in before, but interested in making the switch over. However, I am also nervous of the transition. We do a lot of biking events that include walking and these seem like they would be great for walking around in...not like most road shoes.

Please let me know what other products I need to include in my purchase along with my pedals. thanks

These might be a little stiff if you're going to walk a bit. You might consider a slightly more recreational level mtb shoe.

I'd recommend Crankbros candy pedals. Crankbrothers are a little easier to use IMO

Don't be nervous. You can handle it. You will be glad you did I promise.
