When Gravel or Mountainbiking, your feet need protected in winter. Neoprene is the warmest fabric for overshoes but unsuitable for ground contact. Our Barrier 3 overshoes have a hard-wearing, 4mm Neoprene upper, stitched to a kevlar reinforced sole, to make them durable for cycling – not walking.
Our factory brought us an existing design to which we changed the fabric for easier stretch and fit and added the sturdy YKK zip. We lowered the cuff to make hike-a-bike more comfortable. Once production was completed, the Barrier overshoes were double dipped in rubber, to add a tough toe area and protect the toe from most abrasions.
This rubber contact area will also provide grip when the toe of the overshoe is in contact with the ground. Cleat and heel cutouts and a low cuff make them ideal for winter rides in the trails or mountains.
Please note these are NOT hiking boots. These are to keep your feet warm while cycling. The extra rubber protection is there to stop you slipping on stone walls and cafe floors or over a wall, not walking up the side of a mountain.
The sturdy Zip is highlighted by 3M reflective trim and our subtle logo must be on the outside, as the rubber thickness is reduced on the crank side to prevent rub. Each side has an additional Velcro heel tab to make them quick and easy to get on and off as well as ensuring a snug fit. The combination of the Neoprene construction and welded seams means they protect from the cold and wind. Due to all overshoes having two big holes for your leg and cleat, even if the product materials and design is waterproof, in use the garment is not.
Road Shoes will fit and the cleat will fit though the cleat hole but not enough clearance is available in all cleat positions for unrestricted engagement.

These overshoes are designed for narrow race-type SPD shoes. – you’ll need to go up a size if you want them for wider casual shoes.
No hot washing for neoprene and silicone. Hose and Brush cleaning for durability.
Overshoes love cycling. All overshoes will die quickly if you walk up mountains in them. Cycle don’t walk.
