Moving to and from the bike is part of the ride. Cleatskins Grips provide increased traction, comfort, and ease of movement without heel-walking. It is a perfect cleat protector for you, your shoes and the surface you walk on.

"Saves any damage to cleats and they are a snug fit. Does not affect walking. Expensive but cheaper than damaging cleats. Not so much a coffee shop cleat as a really useful piece of kit if you puncture and have to walk, once happened to me and I ruined a pair of cleats"
Pros: Durable, Comfortable, High Quality, Good Fit
Cons: Expensive

A thick moisturising solution for comfort and reduced friction on endurance road rides. Apply to your seatpad on shorter rides or apply to both your skin and seatpad on epic sportives and stage races.

"Great warmer, was a bit worried as they were lycra but work great and keep their shape. Not for cold winter days but ideal for Spring/Autumn warmer as not a real fleecy inner. No zips to fail which I find to be one of the first things to go
Great value
"
