Durability, water resistance and better fit

In an effort to solve three problems with shoe covers in one simple solution, the new range of shoe covers features the new IntelliSeal innovation, winner of a Eurobike Award 2017. IntelliSeal is a rubberized coating of the binding at the bottom of the shoe cover. This reduces the tendency of shoe covers getting wet on the inside due to the wicking effect of the material along the edge of the shoe cover, and results in a warmer and dryer construction. It also allows the shoe cover to sit tighter around the sole of the shoe and therefore making it harder for water to get inside the shoe cover from the bottom. Lastly, the rubber coating provides a durable protection from wear and tear and makes the stitches last longer, adding to the overall durability of the shoe covers.

A revolution in shoe cover design with a zipper-less design

Accompanied by the IntelliSeal technology, the design of GripGrab’s new range of shoe covers challenges the existing paradigm of how to put on shoe covers. The new zipper-less shoe covers go on before putting on the cycling shoes. This has several advantages:
First off, a zipper can break, which can’t happen if you don’t have one. Then there also is no chaffing or rubbing, which could in some cases lead to rider discomfort. Despite the best efforts, zippers often are a weak point when it comes to water resistance. The new design allows the shoe cover to sit tightly around the leg and the shoe, making it more difficult for water to run down the leg and into the shoe cover.

Zipper-less design in short

  • No zipper
  • Tight, snug fit
  • New way of putting on shoe covers
  • Better water resistance, no chaffing, better fitting

 

IntelliSeal in short

  • Rubberized bottom part of shoe covers
  • Avoids the shoe cover getting soaked in road spray
  • Tighter fit around the sole, keeping road spray away from the shoe
  • Better durability due to protected stitching
