overshoes for specialized expert bg

Postby rich222 » Thu Feb 28, 2013 15:27 pm

Hi

what overshoes have you guys been using with the above shoes? just picked some up in size 44, but wondering what size overshoe will fit it? does the tightening disc get in the way meaning a larger size?

looking at getting some bbb overshoes.

any help would be great thanks

I have the expert bg's but with velcro, not disc, and use Tarmac Pro npu+ overshoes. This is my second winter using them and they are fantastic with no adverse wear. I can't see them being a problem fitting over your tightening disc as there is sufficient 'stretch' in the neoprene. For warmth and comfort I really can't fault them. Just ensure that when you put them on you help guide the overshoe over the disc with your fingers (i.e. don't just drag them on).

Cool, thanks for the tips! Was concerned about getting them over the discs. How does sizing work on overshoes? Mine are a 44 shoe so do you get that size overshoe or go larger than the matched size

I've got a pair of these and used DHB overshoes, you do need to make sure you stretch them over the dial while putting them on otherwise it pulls the release!
Once they are on however there are no issues.

Regarding overshoe size, my road shoes are 45 and my overshoes XXL as recommended for 44-47 size shoes in their sizing guide.

When I first bought mine, I selected the XL size at the checkout (for 42-44) by mistake and they were very very tight (albeit on my 45's), hence I sent them back and got the XXL. Considering how tight the smaller size was, I'd suggest that you buy the larger XXL size as your shoes overlap their XL and XXL size guide. Believe me, they'll still be snug!
