The Italian brand announces the important partnership with the British World Tour training, which ranks among its ranks, among others, Elisa Longo Borghini and Kirsten Wild. Piva: "A strongly wanted meeting, in a sector in great growth and in which we believe so much"

In over 25 years of history, Northwave has achieved great successes in every two-wheeler sector, both male and female, but in 2018 just started it is writing a new page of its history. For years, close to the world of women's cycling on the road, Northwave is proud to announce its first, historic partnership with a UCI Women's World Tour , the world's largest circuit: to open this new path is Team Wiggle High5 , the important British team in which he plays, among others, Elisa Longo Borghini , the strongest Italian athlete currently in business. Team Wiggle High5 will compete in 2018 with Extreme RR footwear, top of the Northwave house road range, in the new White / Red color scheme.
