Mini review: DHB Cover Socks review£12.99

Keep your kicks looking fresh

BikeRadar score3.5/5

First off, these won’t offer the same level of protection as a proper pair of overshoes, although they will offer you a bit of extra warmth.

Their main benefit is that if you’ve got an expensive pair of shoes these’ll stop the crud and dust getting to them, and help keep them looking good.  

They stretch over your shoe like a sock and have a pre-cut hole for most cleat types.

This has taken in time trialling, duathlon and triathlon and he has toured extensively in Asia and Australasia, including riding solo 2900km from Cairns to Melbourne. He now mainly rides as a long-distance commuter and leisure/fitness rider. He has been testing bikes and working for Cycling Plus in various capacities for nearly 20 years.
