Eurobike award winner with IntelliSeal

For FW17, GripGrab has overhauled their lineup of shoe covers almost entirely. The new top of the range models RaceThermo, RaceThermo Hi-Vis, RaceThermo X, Arctic and Arctic X incorporates the award winning IntelliSeal technology.

In an effort to solve three problems with shoe covers in one simple solution, the new range of shoe covers features the new IntelliSeal innovation, winner of a Eurobike Award 2017. IntelliSeal is a rubberized coating of the binding at the bottom of the shoe cover. This reduces the tendency of shoe covers getting wet on the inside due to the wicking effect of the material along the edge of the shoe cover, and results in a warmer and dryer construction. It also allows the shoe cover to sit tighter around the sole of the shoe and therefore making it harder for water to get inside the shoe cover from the bottom. Lastly, the rubber coating provides a durable protection from wear and tear and makes the stitches last longer, adding to the overall durability of the shoe covers.

A revolution in shoe cover design with a zipper-less design

Accompanied by the IntelliSeal technology, the design of GripGrab’s new range of shoe covers challenges the existing paradigm of how to put on shoe covers. The new zipper-less shoe covers go on before putting on the cycling shoes. This has several advantages:
First off, a zipper can break, which can’t happen if you don’t have one. Then there also is no chaffing or rubbing, which could in some cases lead to rider discomfort. Despite the best efforts, zippers often are a weak point when it comes to water resistance. The new design allows the shoe cover to sit tightly around the leg and the shoe, making it more difficult for water to run down the leg and into the shoe cover.

“These high-visibility shoe covers feature an innovative and effective seal around the shoe. The seamless design also makes them very flexible, watertight and comfortable to wear.”   –   Eurobike Award Jury on RaceThermo Hi-Vis

The next step towards dry feet – GripGrab CyclinGaiter

The most common problem with shoe covers in rainy conditions? Water running down from the legs into the shoe covers. With the CyclinGaiter, GripGrab attempts to provide a suitable solution for an inherent problem.

The GripGrab CyclinGaiter is a PU coated neoprene cover, that is pulled over the top of the shoe cover and sits super tightly on the leg, closing the gap between the top of the shoe cover and the leg. The CyclinGaiter, because it’s made from PU coated neoprene, can’t get soaked in water and therefore doesn’t become heavier or colder when wet.

CyclinGaiter in short

  • PU coated neoprene seal for the gap between leg warmers and shoe cover
  • Available in black and Hi-Vis, both with reflective logos
  • Prolonging the time it takes for water to run into the shoe/shoe cover
  • Compatible with winter cycling shoes as well
