Justed ordered a pair in 44 EU. Wear a 45 EU in Sidi Wire but haven't really been that impressed with the shoe. Constantly have to tighten down their "BOA" and they are tight in the toebox. Very eager to see how the Extreme RR pans out.

Just received few pairs of these. The shoes look great. Weight (size 43) 238 grams. Some sizing info FYI.

My foot feels best in:
Sidi Wire 42.5
Gaerne Chrono 43
Gaerne Stilo 42.5
Fizik R1B Uomo 42
Mavic Zxellium 42 2/3
Shimano S-Phyre RC9 43
NW Extreme 42
NW Extreme Road/MTB Winter 42 (with room for thicker sock)

In Extreme RR 43 I am perfect width-wise and have a little room in front of my toes (seems like the shoe is made unlike other NW shoes - now for longer and skinnier foot) - the shoe fits me quite well. Super snug feel throughout the foot. Heel cup inner fabric (directional fiber) is great - no slippage at all but the grab by the heel cup itself is perfect. The shoe seemed to be a bit bulky in the photos but in real life it's ultra slim. The shoes come with two types of inserts: standard and high volume. Will start testing the shoes today and will give them a good workout at the training camp this weekend.
One thing that might not be perfect - the finish. The matt leather suede like finish looks sick but how easy it is going to be to maintain - hmmm? The local Seattle weather will give it a good test :-)

Martin, I'm also interested in getting a pair of these Extreme RR's. I have another pair of NW Road shoes about 8 yrs. old and 45.5 fits perfect. What size do you recommend for the ERR's? Thanks!

Jerry,
It is hard to say. Your 8 year old 45.5s are an indication you will be some place within 44.5 to 46.5 range - yes, this is a huge range. 2016 NW Extreme size 42 fit me perfectly and there is no way I can squeeze into RRs size 42; RR 43s fit me best. It really is best to buy the shoes based on a fit test. Or at least have a comparison to something quite new: for example it seems as 2015 Gaerne Chrono or 2016 Shimano RC9 are very similarly sized as Extreme RR.
Sorry I cannot be of more help.

Just came back from a weekend of training rides where I did about 180 miles in brand new Extreme RRs. Overall the shoes are very good. Sole stiffness and foot wrap is excellent. The lacing system works very well. The foot is perfectly wrapped in the shoe and the power transfer to pedal is superb. We had light rain on of the rides and the shoe looked perfectly OK after getting wet and then drying. One thing to note - the edge of a "tongue" part of the shoe has harder edge and you can feel its pressure on the foot. This was not noticeable while on the bike but was bothering me while off the bike. I have a fairly standard foot shape; riders with high bridge might find it irritating.
Keepers for me.

One more to add to sizing comparo:
2017 NW Evolution Plus 42

Looks like Extreme RR runs about 1/2 smaller than your typical NW.

The shoes were exposed yesterday to torrential rain and mid 30F temps (yes, it still sucks here in Seattle area). I was pleasantly impressed how easily the dirt washed out (actually much easier than from any others I have had) and after drying out they are as good as they were - stiff and supportive. Lacing system continues to work as new.

BTW, I have no idea why the images post here upside-down :roll:

I've had my Extreme RR's a couple of weeks now. Done a bunch of short commutes and one decent ride in some hills, and by and large I'm pretty happy with them. Coming from size 44 Sidi Wires, I went 44 in the Northwaves and they're a touch longer, and about the same width wise but might feel like they alow for a bit more volume in the top of the foot. I guess I could try the higher volume innersoles that come with them, but then they feel a little too squishy.

Since the cable has too pull through a bunch of loops, I've found it doesn't tighten down perfectly when I put them on at first, but walking around for a minute or 2 getting the bike out the door is enough to even the cable out to where I can tighten it down better. I haven't had the cable come loose at all during a ride yet.

Stack wise they're lower than the Sidi's - I've had to drop my saddle by 1-2mm to make up for the lower stack. They'd be lower again with the speedplay adapter. They're also a lot lighter than the Wires. Can't remember the exact figure, but it was somewhere around 70-80g lighter per shoe
