New & Used from eBay


The humble neoprene overshoe is a real staple of any cyclist’s wardrobe. For the British cyclist, it’s something of a perennial consumable, an item we all love to hate, as it means cold, wet, winter days.

Recently updated with a taller leg, the Diluvio has got most of the details spot-on, but we’d like to see a couple of changes to the zip — if it were off-centre it’d be more comfortable on the Achilles, plus it’s pretty stiff due to the tightness of the cover. Otherwise, it’s a great item.


The 16cm cuff offers valuable coverage; 
the thermosealed seams hold back water well and the cut-out around the cleats is nigh-on perfect.
