I have heard many different quotes for how much time aero overshoes save in a TT, everything from nothing to 20 seconds. I am sceptical. Having used overshoes for the last two years, I havent used them for my last two races and posted two massive PBs.
It might just be some weird mindset I have going on, but I really dont like the way they look - for reference I had some £20 PRO overshoes which I have seen numerous top riders using.
What are they for and is there really any benefit? Or is my mind playing tricks on me and just liking the way my feet feel cooler and are shiny and silver (shoe colour) rather than dull and black. Any thoughts?
