The weather has been so awful this winter that the roads have been constantly filled with mud and debris fom the fields. When it came to reviewing these Grip Grab MTB/XC overshoes, we decided then to do something different – how would they stack up on these debris laden roads as a general pair, suitable for both mountain bike and road and saving you some money.
Here’s the deal people: “It’s not over until it’s over!” Yes, the cold winds of winter will stay for a while yet, especially in the high passes and hill areas. Thankfully Alé make great cold weather gloves
Cycle overshoes are simple really: they need to be waterproof, strong and stretchy, with excellent fastenings that don’t come apart
In the harshest of conditions you need the best of kit. Riding in the Yorkshire Dales in winter can be icy cold and snow bound at times, and these are the conditions for which this overshoe has been designed.
GripGrab say that it’s the warmest overshoe on the market, and they’re probably correct. It’s cut and sewn from 4mm waterpoof neoprene, with a hollow fibre lining to ensure comfort, and it works.
You just need to look and feel these overshoes to know that they’re the very best quality. In fact, they look as good turned inside out as they do on the protective side. GripGrab have gone to town on the design and materials used, and they fit on easily, stretch with toughness, and simply perform superbly and look the business.
