The waterproof Castelli Pioggia 3 Shoe Cover is fleece lined for warmth making it the perfect piece for winter riding.
Pioggia translates as rain and this shoe cover is optomised for the rain. The waterproof PU-coated stretch fabric, with fleece lining, is partially tape sealed to stop rain from entering. Combined with a waterproof rear facing zipper and silicone-lined cuff with a cross wrap Velcro strap to seal against shin runoff. Makes this a cover doing everything possible to resist water entering.
While its forte is resisting rain the Poggia is fleece lined and waterproof, waterproof also means windproof, so the Pogia is also a very good cold weather shoe cover. Cold and wet not the best riding conditions but if you ride all winter then you know which cover you now need.
The fabric is stretchy and the whole shoecover has a very close aero profile thats impressive given the amount of protection on offer this is definately a fast riding piece and not a commuter shoe cover.
The Castelli Pioggia 3 is about as waterproof as you can make a shoe cover and it still be close fitting and not affect cycling performance. Some moisture will eventually get in through the cuff and the cleat hole underneath. However, the combination of PU fabric and fleece lining mean even if damp your feet should remain warm
