HOW IS THE WATERPROOFING OF THESE OVERSHOES TESTED?
Breathable, windproof, waterproof external membrane and thermobonded seams to make the product fully watertight.
This product has been approved following tests in a simulator that reproduces the conditions of a MODERATE RAIN SHOWER, which is the equivalent of 60 L/m2/h (60 mm/h of rainfall) for 2 hours. The fabric withstands a water column of 10,000 mm after 5 washes (= 10,000 Schmerber, the average water pressure exerted by water during a rain shower - test based on the ISO 811 standard).
ALL ABOUT BREATHABILITY
Breathable membrane thanks to the hydrophilic fabric (RET =< 12) that limits condensation inside the product. To determine whether a fabric is breathable, we measure its evaporative resistance (test based on standard ISO 11092).
As a guide,
RET < 9 = extremely breathable fabric
9 < RET < 12 = very breathable fabric
12 < RET < 20 = breathable fabric
RET > 20 = slightly or not breathable fabric
The fabric of these overshoes is therefore very breathable.
HOW ARE THESE OVERSHOES DESIGNED FOR URBAN CYCLING?
Keep your feet dry in just a few seconds!
With their fitted cut, elastic bands, velcro tabs and stretch fabric, these plain overshoes fit all types of city shoe! Even in heavy rain, your shoes will stay dry.
These overshoes can be used on their own or in addition to rainproof overtrousers or a rain skirt.
Put the overshoes on under your overtrousers for the best protection.
WHAT MAKES THESE OVERSHOES DURABLE?
The zones that suffer the most wear have been reinforced with a fabric that better withstands abrasion. This will make your overshoes last much longer, so you can keep using them intensively for years and years.
