[Press Release] – Terra Artica GTX is our off-road winter cycling shoe. Both insulated and equipped with a breathable, waterproof GORE-TEX membrane, it is a versatile shoe that is reliable for all-terrain riding, gravel grinding, mountain biking and beyond.

The Terra Artica GTX is designed for off-road winter riding in any weather. Fully insulated, waterproof and breathable, our performance all-terrain shoe comes ready to roll in extreme climates and is built to protect you from the most severe weather, whether you’re tackling snow- covered technical trails, rain-soaked downcountry laps, or epic, icy gravel adventures.

Featuring an insulated Koala membrane by GORE- TEX, the Artica GTX is fully waterproof, meaning you can rely on their proven performance to keep you dry when it matters most. But beyond simply stopping wet weather, the advanced GORE-TEX technology is optimized for better breathability. That means that while wet weather conditions are stopped at the surface, moisture molecules from sweat vapor inside the shoe can easily escape through billions of tiny pores, for warmer, drier feet on cold, wet winter cycling adventures.

Inside the shoe, a soft, brushed-fleece lining increases both insulation and comfort, for an added cozy layer of defense against winter’s worst elements, be that a ride in freezing rain or a full-on spin in the snow.

Outside, a high-density PU-laminated upper is the perfect match to the lightweight GORE-TEX membrane, combining resilience with streamlined warmth for a nimble shoe that retains a high level of durability. The addition of a Velcro strap secures the ankle in place, while a single L6 BOA® dial makes micro fit adjustments easy, even with bulky winter gloves.

Now more versatile than ever, we’ve redesigned our X5 outsole for better grip and more traction in slippery winter conditions. Equipped with generous studs and a rubber coating that covers the entire surface, including the mid-foot, the X5 outsole provides sure footing when steep, rough tracks require you to hike with your bike.
