Sealskinz All-Weather LED Cycle Overshoe 4

It’s coming up to that time of year again. The weather is cooling down, leaves are falling off the trees and torrential downpours out of nowhere tend to plague the average cyclist’s life. Not only during but after too – how the hell do you avoid those massive puddles when you’ve got machines weighing in at over a ton bearing down on you whilst on the road? Safer just to plough on through and deal with the wet feet later! As you can probably tell, I quite like this product…

These overshoes keep your expensive cycling shoes (and, by extension, your feet!) warm and dry no matter the weather conditions. It’s got a very specific mix of materials with 90% Neoprene, 7% Nylon and 3% Kevlar (mainly in use at your toes and on the heel. OMG Bulletproof toes! Not really of course, that would be silly. But still cool.) that combine together to make an easily washable, waterproof overshoe. Added bonus being that you don’t need to clean this in any weird or wonderful way, you just sling it in the washing with everything else! DON’T tumble dry, just leave it to drip dry and don’t forget to take the LED light off first of course…

Speaking of which, the LED light is situated in the heel and has a battery life of up to 240 hours with a range of up to 500 metres so should help to keep you safe on the road. You also have different settings for the light (fast & slow intermittent flashing and solid beam) and the battery is replaceable so no need to worry about buying a new pair when the battery runs out. As well as this, with maximum visibility in mind, the Overshoe also has reflective taping near the zipper and the logo itself is reflective. RRP £60
