ASSOS bootie Winter
New ASSOS 2018 Autumn/Winter item
Ultra lightweight, zip-free overshoes with an improved aerodynamic performance to face winter head-on
Made to endure the colder seasons on the bike, these tech-savvy Winter Booties deliver supreme thermal protection in our most compact iteration to date. A reworked overshoe with an all-new ergonomic cut that eliminates wrinkles and an improved aerodynamic performance thanks to its zipless construction, these winter overshoes embody the essential characteristics of a must-have, lightweight, yet super warm shoe cover. The ASSOS internal test team classifies them as the convergence of an aero bootie and a warm winter overshoe with a blend of materials that lock out wind and water without compromising on their low weight or breathability. Sounds like prime riding equipment for winter and these are certainly a product that we’re excited about.
For these Winter Booties, our fabric specialists have flexed their know-how to deploy their latest weapon against the elements. As your feet are so vulnerable while pedaling in bad weather, they’ve engineered waterproof and abrasion-resistant Cordura on the toe area, while reserving our proprietary NEOS Medium on the ankle, which adds stretch, thermal protection and impermeability. Their compact, packable design is practical, so you can easily stow these overshoes if the temperature rises.

HOW TO PUT ON ASSOS ZIP-FREE OVERSHOES:
Important note: These ASSOS Zip-Free overshoes are high performance cycling equipment. Please do not rush to put them on. These are very tight fitting and require a certain element of finesse to put on. The Zip-Free overshoes are put on BEFORE your cycling shoes. With a little experience this will become an easy and intuitive part of the pre-ride procedure.
Step 1. Put your foot through the upper opening and then out the cleat opening. Then pull the overshoe up around your ankle.
Step 2. Put on your cycling shoe.
Step 3. Carefully pull the heel area of the shoe cover down and into position around the rear of the shoe.
Step 4. Carefully pull the front area of the shoe cover forward and over the front of the shoe. Done! HAVE A GOOD RIDE!
