An evolution of a classic – The Explorer are versatile gravel-focused shoe covers for drop-bar riders whose aspirations and adventures take them beyond the paved road.
To help reduce water seeping in through the top of this shoe cover we recommend you wear your water-resistant leg warmers or cycling bib tights over the top of the shoe cover cuff. We also recommend you seal vents and holes in the soles of your cycling shoes to limit water ingress from below. Following these tips will ensure you get the best performance from this product.
Will they keep my feet dry?
Yes. The membrane in these shoe covers is waterproof, so assuming you don’t damage this membrane they will keep your feet dry. There are limits however… hosepipes and knee-deep puddles for example, will likely find a way inside.
Will they keep my feet warm?
These shoe covers are most suited to cool and mild conditions and can be used in cold conditions depending on the rider's preference. While the waterproof membrane will help a lot with keeping you warm, this is not a deep winter product and we do not advise wearing it on cold or sub-zero long rides.
