With the new Fall/Winter 2017 range, GripGrab offers three different shoe covers in both a road and an off-road version.
Specific designs for road, MTB and CX
The off-road versions have a different sole than the road versions. In the case of the RaceAqua X, the sole is made from a durable Kevlar material and is more open and doesn’t cover the sole of the shoe. This allows the cyclist to walk or run in these shoe covers, should the terrain or other factors require to do so.
The RaceThermo X and Arctic X have an almost identical sole to their road counterparts. However, the RaceThermo X and Arctic X additionally feature a strong nylon band at the front, which keeps the shoe covers firmly attached to the shoe in order to prevent the cover from slipping when getting off the bike and walking or running up steep hills or clearing cyclocross-typical obstacles.
The road versions of the shoe covers are specifically designed for road cycling shoes and are not recommended to be used with any other shoes. Their tight fit is made for the smooth soles of road shoes, compared to the rough edges of the studs on MTB shoes.
The off-road shoe covers are specifically designed for MTB shoes and their use. Cyclocross riders, in particular, will know that sooner or later, you will have to get off your bike, and ruining your shoe covers as well as having them slide over the top of the toes is simply irritating. The aim of our off-road shoe covers is to keep them in place and keep the damage from walking or running to a minimum. The off-road shoe covers are primarily intended to be used in training, where more protection from the elements is usually needed than in high-intensity racing.
