Being based in the south of England, we sometimes get a milder Winter than most of the UK.
As this was the case in 2014/2015, Andy
tried a Winter long experiment using the popular Aqua Light Overshoes
throughout the Winter months (in combination with our ThermoLite Socks
as opposed to the more bulky and warmer Air Tunnel Overshoes
As part of this real-world experiment we also decided to get a prototype pair of matching gloves in the same fabric. After months of riding at the weekend and commuting to work, we discovered a few inadequacies with the various prototype versions, but we worked hard with our Italian glove manufacturer to settle on a final finished product for sale. The super-soft Super Roubaix cuff being our favourite feature of the new glove.
If you have a pair of the Aqua Light overshoes
, you will be well aware of the effectiveness of the fabric.
The anti-slip grippers on the palms allow your hands to stay well gripped to the bars in all conditions whilst the perforated AirTech palm allows your hands to breathe.
