Barrier 3 Overshoe

(9 customer reviews)


Protection to fit over SPD/MTB shoes and keep your feet warm.

When Gravel or Mountainbiking, your feet need protected in winter.  Neoprene is the warmest fabric for overshoes but unsuitable for ground contact. Our Barrier 3 overshoes have a hard-wearing, 4mm Neoprene upper, stitched to a kevlar reinforced sole, to make them durable for cycling – not walking.

Our factory brought us an existing design to which we changed the fabric for easier stretch and fit and added the sturdy YKK zip. We lowered the cuff to make them more comfortable for variable terrain. Once production was completed, the Barrier overshoes were double dipped in rubber,  to add a tough toe area and protect the toe from most abrasions.

This rubber contact area will also provide grip when the toe of the overshoe is in contact with the ground. Cleat and heel cutouts and a low cuff make them ideal for winter rides in the trails or mountains.

Please note these are NOT hiking boots. These are to keep your feet warm while cycling. The extra rubber protection is there to stop you slipping on stone walls and cafe floors or over a wall, not walking in. 

The sturdy Zip is highlighted by 3M reflective trim and our subtle logo must be on the outside, as the rubber thickness is reduced on the crank side to prevent rub. Each side has an additional Velcro heel tab to make them quick and easy to get on and off as well as ensuring a snug fit. The combination of the Neoprene construction and welded seams means they protect from the cold and wind. Due to all overshoes having two big holes for your leg and cleat, even if the product materials and design is waterproof, in use the garment is not.



Road Shoes will fit and the cleat will fit though the cleat hole but not enough clearance is available in all cleat positions for unrestricted engagement.

    Barrier 3 Overshoe is the best overshoe I have used for off-road/ mountain bike shoes. They are warm down to near freezing temps in the NorthEast, United States and have an excellent fit (size 42 euro Shimano mountain bike XC7 shoes)-size large overshoe fits very nicely-with some care and taking time to fit them properly. The overshoe deals with light rain and wet roads very well and cleans up easily. Robust, solid craftsmanship!

    Tolle Überschuhe, besonders mit dem Gummiüberzug an der Spitze!
    Ich hätte sie aber gerne etwas höher, daher kann ich nicht verstehen, warum man den cuff niedriger gemacht hat.

    Got two of these, one for my wife and the other for my teenage son. Both of them have cold toes and these over shoes are the first theyve had that have kept them toasty

    The quality also looks good.

    Waterproof, warm, robust and the first overshoes I’ve found that fit Mtd shoes nicely

    Excellent for warmth, I have used last few weeks between 2-6 degrees and did not notice feet at all, great sign. Also means not overly warm, which is an important bonus. In addition great design with the strengthened toes and heel points. Big warning though, the sizing seems very optimistic – I needed a large for my ‘medium’ size 42 SPD shoes, and even the large overshoes need a good bit of wrestling/pulling to get over my shoes. Once on a very snug fit and beginning to flex with time. Also have to be careful to pull bottom strap back to make sure cleats line up in the front hole, would suggest Galibier move the strap back 1 cm to avoid any clash with the cleats.

    5 hours! I had warm feet for 5 hours in the mountains, in winter.
    Highly recommend, Wearing well after 3 months heavy use.

    I went up a size to an XL for my size 44 Shimano MT3 shoes but they were still a very tight fit. The deal breaker though was that the hole on the underneath wasn’t big enough to clear my cleats.

    These would probably work better if you have more race-oriented shoes.

    After starting gravel biking in Oct, I’ve been destroying old overshoes in the muddy conditions over winter, so luckily after some nudging, these turned up at Christmas.
    I wear 44 and L fits perfectly. Tough reinforcements are stopping the overshoe from disintegrating like 3 other pairs, they stay in place and don’t interfere with the cleats, easy on/off, keep feet warm.
    More than I’ve paid for overshoes, but the difference in quality is blatant.

    I bought these for mountain biking, predominantly in the south Cotswold gloop. I wear size 46 Shimano SPDs and the XL overshoes fit well. Nice and tight but the holes underneath line up well with the cleat and edge of the shoes.

    These have kept my shoes clean and dry during muddy rides although I haven’t yet tested them in a downpour. My feet as a result were nice and warm despite temperatures ranging from freezing to 3 degrees.
    Good value for money in my opinion – another great product and a fantastic price from Galibier.
