Mini review: Prendas Aquatex overshoes review$41.52

Beat the elements

BikeRadar score4/5

One of the issues with overshoes can be getting them on. These have enough stretch that you can get them on and off easily. 

They’re also waterproof and windproof, and a reflective Scotchlite strip adds to the zip strength and visibility. 

Lighter than neoprene, Prendas's Aquatex fabric still does a good job of keeping your feet warm and dry. 

Simon has been cycling for as long as he can remember, and more seriously since his time at university in the Dark Ages (the 1980s). 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.
