As a repeat guest to the show, David Gabrys, is a great interviewee. His attention to detail and passion for the brand and cycling comes through very quickly. He is a well-spoken guest who has some great insight into the cycling industry and extensive experience with cold weather cycling. In this episode of MBR, David discusses all of the fine details of the Wolvhammer and gives some insight into the design, production, and functionality of a new breed of cycling apparel.

A full description of the Wolvhammer from the 45NRTH website:
"The pinnacle of winter cycling footwear.
Our vision for the Wölvhammer transcended traditional cycling footwear and originated from the conceptual standpoint of a mountaineering boot. On the inside we max out the insulation package with 200g Thinsulate on the forefoot and NASA-approved aerogel in the insole to block cold cleats.
On the outside, 1000-denier Cordura and waterproof-breathable Sympatex block moisture and manage perspiration. For deep snow, easily add knee-high gaiters using the dedicated hook on the toe box. And of course, the Vibram sole is ready for any SPD-compatible cleat of your choice. These are the finest winter cycling shoes ever made.
Say goodbye to cold. Say hello to comfort."
