In 2006, we had the idea for the original ‘Spatz’ knee-length overshoe. In 2017 (after a career in the peloton) we brought them to market and quickly became leaders in overshoes and extreme condition cycling apparel.
For 2023/24 we have used all our experience and feedback to create the ‘Spatz Pro Stealth Overshoe System’. From countless hours of testing in extreme conditions, we are confident that this overshoe system will once again rewrite the rule book of overshoe design. There has never been an overshoe like this before and it will change the way you ride in the cold forever. It is simply unparalleled for cold and wet weather riding.
Designed as a two-part layering system, the Pro Stealth Overshoes ship together with the Protoez Toe Warmers. The Pro Stealth Overshoes can be worn alone over cycling shoes in temperatures over 3-5 degrees centigrade. Any colder and we recommend the Protoez toe warmers should be added underneath the overshoes. When the Pro Stealth Overshoes and Protoez Toe Warmers are worn together, the cleverly designed silicone seals (on the inside and outside of the toe warmers) integrate perfectly with the seals on the inside of the overshoes, forming a barrier which drastically reduces the ingress of moisture and creates insulation which is unmatched in a cycling overshoe.
In addition to improved warmth and water protection, the Pro Stealth Overshoes are manufactured from a combination of materials which have not been seen in cycling applications before. Throughout the design and development process, focus was on toughness, resilience, comfort and longevity, as well as warmth, water resistance and aerodynamics. The overshoes are a combination of Kevlar covered neoprene, tough cordura covered neoprene and super flexible nylon covered neoprene. Materials are positioned to target the requirements of that exact panel to create a system that moves with the rider and does not wrinkle or crease whilst in use. The overshoes create a seamless transition from bib tight/leg warmer to overshoe which is not only pleasing aesthetically but also incredibly sleek and aerodynamic.
The entire bottom opening of the overshoes is lined with two rows of silicone aqua seal which locks against the Protoez toe warmer and the cycling shoe. Vertical strips of silicone run along the leg to ensure the overshoe hugs the leg and remains snug as you pedal, regardless of leg size. The shin area has a thermal lining to add warmth where you need it most. The rear section is 1mm lycra covered neoprene to offer ease of use and unfathomable suppleness. They are easy to put on and articulate beautifully as you move.
Despite being supple and comfortable, the Pro Stealth Overshoes use neoprene which is incredibly tough and resistant to nicks and rips. The logos we have used are subtle and stealthy, whilst being highly reflective to catch the glare of headlights.
We are extremely proud of this product. It has let us ride and train in conditions which would be unthinkable in years gone by. If you are looking for an overshoe system to take you through the winter and perform better than anything else on the market, Pro Stealth Overshoes system is for you.
