Overshoes

Fell of my bike this morning utilizing the cross part of my CX bike and caught my overshoes on the pump mounted on the down tube.
They are ripped beyond repair.
Any suggestions out there for a replacement pair for under £ 30 ?
Look forward to hearing from you.

  • How about these? I find them both warm and durable and wouldn't be without them in winter.
  • Forgot to add the link. Doh! Old age I reckon.

  • Own a pair of Castelli Diluvio's and they're pretty good for all round winter riding. My feet have been dry in torrential rain on my 10 mile commute and they don't make your feet look like space boots.

    Slightly over budget but a keen eye could probably get them for just £30.

  • i recommend the bbb waterflex overshoes i did have a pair for nearly 2yrs and they really kept my feet warm and dry in very heavy rain, can be found for around £20.

    I had these on my feet on Saturday on a 57 mile ride around Arran. I also had full length mudguards. Feet were soaked through :(
    However there was torrential rain , hail stones , thunder n' lightening and the sea was crashing over the sea wall onto the road as we rode by ....
    So I've still to test them out under "normal" conditions :lol:

    Second the Planet X neoprene ones. Not sure if the winter bundle is still on offer, but for £17 you get £40+ worth of goodies including the overshoes.

    Get on it!
