equipment and practice
The material of the Rose Windbeat is visually reminiscent of the windproof membrane of well-known manufacturers and convinces in practice with absolutely windproof material and high breathability. Even light drizzle cannot harm the overshoes.
The fleece inner lining ensures pleasantly warm feet in a temperature range of around 0 to 10 degrees Celsius shivering predisposed drivers Windbeat Long can also tighten up to 15 degrees Celsius. The cut-out in the cleat area is large enough for all common pedal systems, the edge of the opening is neatly sewn and should ensure a long service life.
The overshoe is very easy to pull over the shoe, but is still relatively snug. It hardly forms wrinkles. They are only a little tight at the waistband if you have thicker calves. The zipper is then difficult to close all the way to the end.
Another advantage is the small pack size, which allows the overshoes to be easily stowed away in the jersey pocket after the cool morning hours. Those who often have to train in the evening hours due to work, will be recognized very well and early on by drivers thanks to the numerous reflectors. This provides additional safety during training.
The Rose Windbeat Long live up to their name. They are absolutely windproof and also water-repellent. Thanks to the low price of 22,95 euros, they are becoming an exciting utensil for the cold season. Only drivers with thicker calves could have problems with the closure due to the tight fit.
