If there’s two things sure to ruin any winter ride, it’s numb fingers and cold toes.
Cycling overshoes are a staple piece of kit for year round cycling to keep out the elements and keep your feet warm. A pair should be included in every cyclist’s essential kit. With features like specific coated fabrics, taped seams and reinforcements, overshoes can make a noticeable difference to your cycling comfort on both wet and cold days. Using overshoes will help to provide an insulated, windproof and waterproof covering for your feet.
There are a variety of cycling overshoes available. Some over shoes are designed to help improve aerodynamics and are a useful piece of kit for those cyclists looking for an aerodynamic advantage slicing through the air when every watt of energy counts!
At Salt Dog Cycling we have a range of technically advanced and stylish cycling overshoes.
Generally neoprene material will offer the most protection in terms of warmth. Reinforced toes and heels increase durability and a full length zip helps to make cycling overshoes easy to get on and off. Many overshoes come with reflective detailing to help improve visibility, which will ensure you’re seen by other road users during the darker nights and adverse weather conditions.
Add a pair of cycling overshoes to your kit for sportives, race days or just your everyday commute to help protect your feet from the elements. They’re an inexpensive item which is likely to prove a valuable addition to your ride.
