veloToze - a top class budget option

First thing I've decided to officially review on this website is none other than veloToze overshoes.



In reality I purchased my first pair of veloToze overshoes early 2015, so I've used them for over 5 years. Pretty qualified to write a thing or two about them I'd say....

I've used both the short and tall overshoes offered by veloToze range - and my choice will always be the short version.

Why? The short version is first and foremost - cheaper than the tall version by a few £ or $ wherever you buy them from. Then there's the time it takes to put them on, the tall version requires you to put them on before you wear your shoes, which is no easy feat (see what I did there πŸ˜‰) when it's super grippy and sticks to itself. Putting the short version on is just like putting on any other overshoes / oversocks - straightforward but does come with a penalty of chance that your socks with be drenched with rain / water. So really it depends on the weather or condition that you're riding in.

From a price point of view - it gets full 5 beers 🍺🍺🍺🍺🍺 from me. At the moment of writing this review, veloToze 2.0 can be purchased for £16 (short) and £19 (tall) and after using version 1.0 for 5 years and only had to change once, its very good value for performance (keeping dry), and we've not even gone into talking about watts saving performance yet.

As I've only used version 1.0 and still have a pair of short and a pair of tall overshoes, I cannot comment on 2.0 but only imagine that it's been improved in every way possible. The main downside I've encountered with version 1.0 is that they were ripping at the cleat hole and rear. But I can live with that.


In conclusion - veloToze overshoes gets a 4 out of 5 beers 🍺🍺🍺🍺 rating from Ski.Bike.Drink.
Undeniably well priced, not the easiest to put the tall version on, not as durable as more pricey options.
