New From Planet Bike: Three Cold-Weather Shoe Cover Options

“More rapid than eagles, his coursers they came, and he whistled and shouted and called them by
name: ‘Now Dasher!…On, Comet!.. and Blitzen!”

Just in time for the massive, horibble suck-fest that is winter cycling, Planet Bike has three offerings in the cold-weather cycling shoe cover department. From the minimalist Dasher, wind-proof toe cover, to the more robust Blitzen Wind-proof shoe cover, to the much more heavy-duty Comet neoprene booty, Planet bike has got you, er…covered.

“Now dash away! Dash away! Dash away all!”

Photos of the Blitzen and the Comet and full specs on all three models after the break…

Option Four: Plastic bags from the grocery store between your socks and your shoes.

- Free
- Can be combined with other methods
- Not really all that stylish
- Moisture build-up

Can you show the bottom/tread side, too?

I’ve never had a pair of shoe covers that I have been satisfied with for mountain bike use, as they have all been destroyed by a poor sole/tread interface.
Maybe one of these three address that recurring problem?!
