Mavic Thermo Plus Shoe Cover review

An attractive pair of overshoes with some innovative features.

Cycling Weekly Verdict

Overall, these are decent pair of overshoes that fit well and look great when combined with other Mavic kit. They have some good features and are very well made, but they are not the warmest covers, despite a high price tag and having 'Thermo' in their name. In addition, we found them unsuitable in wet conditions.
