- Good fit
- Tight zip
- Zip needs to be off-centre
Product:Castelli Diluvio 16 overshoe
Price as reviewed:£35
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.
