Intenso Ul Shoecover

Cold, soppy socks that squish and squish with heavy rain at every pedal stroke — every Cat 5 racer or unprepared cyclist has likely felt the accompanying misery for mile after mile, wondering why they didn’t go in on that Castelli Intenso UL Shoecover before fall weather loomed overhead. Don’t get caught out again and protect your investment in your riding enjoyment with an insulated weather-resistant shoe cover. With a blend of neoprene and Gore-Tex Infinium fabric to ensure a perfect and insulated fit, the chances your toes being a weak-link on your next winter ride are slim.


Castelli utilizes a tall shaft height to gain a more appropriate fit at the calf and a hook-and-loop strap underfoot to fit the cover to your shoe more securely. And whether it’s fun on sloppy trails or CX parks, or a traditional base-miles road ride, the Intenso accommodates standard two and three-bolt cleats. Off the bike, the durable lower paneling resists abrasions to extend the lifespan.

Worked Well, On One And Only Ride

Familiarity:
I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

Great shoe covers, but fell apart after the first ride, The toe cap seam started unstitching itself.

Not too warmth

Familiarity:
I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
Size Bought:
Large
Weight:
155

I had used them two times in central Florida, temp 38F and 34 F first day with wind second a day no wind, I was expecting my feet to get warmth but honestly I just noticed a small improvement, I felt my toes cold all of the time, I am not sure if this item will work under 32F? They are nice, comfortable, not too difficult to put them on, I am 5.7/155 and the top part of the booth are just tight to zipper it , if you have thick legs it maybe a problem there, these covers fit perfectly in my 42 size shoes, in summary I tested for both wind and just cold conditions not totally convinced. If I need to up date later on I will.

Great shoecovers for cold rides

Familiarity:
I've used it several times
Size Bought:
large

I use these size large shoecovers with my Lake size 44 wide summer road shoes and Shimano road cleats. The covers fit snugly. which is fine, but if I wore any larger of a size (even a half size), I think they would be too tight. I initially thought these were too small until I figured out how to put them on properly: first, slide the shoe cover on, above your ankle. Then put on the shoe. Then slide the cover down, and pull over the toe area of the shoe first, then the back, and lastly fasten the velcro strap on the bottom. Do not try and pull the cover over the shoe and cleat, when putting on or taking off. My feet tend to get cold easily, and I can ride in temperatures in the lower 40's (Fahrenheit) comfortably with these. I recently did a road ride in the mid to upper 30's and stuck toe warmer packs to my socks, and I was fine. I do not think I could ride at freezing or below with these. Keep in mind they are not going to be as warm as more expensive, dedicated winter shoes (by Lake, 45 NRTH, etc.). These covers do not provide any insulation for the bottom of the shoes. I bought the hi-viz yellow ones, and they really stand out, but I do wish they were yellow on all sides, instead of having the black stripe on the rear. I think it is important to be highly visible to motorists approaching from the rear.

My choice for midrange cold temps

Got a set of Estremos for really cold temps, these will be for just above freezing up to the mid 50F's. Used them today in 36-44F and they worked fine. Undoing the velcro strap underneath the arch makes it easy to get them on and off. Also checked out Gore's latest shoe covers, made from new fleece-lined stretch Infineum WindStopper. The Intensos have more substantial material around the edges of the soles. On my set of the previous version of the Gores, I wore a hole under the front of the left one from putting my left foot down at stops, and the new Gores do not seem sturdier in that area. The Intensos also accommodate cleats better: the new Gores have a tightly sized hole which unfortunately does not line up well with my cleats, which I have moved back on my shoes. Downside of the Intensos is that the rear part is black (I got the bright yellow ones for visibility), hard for traffic behind to see. So I clip USB-rechargeable flashing red LED's (EverLight FX by Apace, $25/pair on Amazon) to the tops of the backs of the Intensos.

Do a decent enough job

Familiarity:
I've used it several times
Size Bought:
L
Height:

Have worn them 3x now, in both cold (32F) or very wet (43F) conditions without fenders. Paired with a toe warmer on top of my shoe, my feet tolerated the weather in both types of conditions. For cold, the potential drawback is there is not bottom sole (so that it can accommodate MTB/Gravel shoes) so the bottom of your feet may get cold. For wet, even though it's a pretty tight fit at the top, I think water still finds a way in when there is a consistent wet road spray. Finally, I had to size up. Started with a M for my size 41.5 road shoes/42 MTB shoes. The road shoes barely fit but I couldn't get my MTB shoes on. With a size L it's still tight but I can get them on. In the end, I think it's a good value for what you get. For longer rides in inclement weather, I would recommend want something extra to help these, like fenders or a toe warmer.

Difficult to put on/take off

Familiarity:

I found these extremely difficult to put on and take off. I followed the size guide and got an XL for my size 45 shoes. In addition, they offered VERY LITTLE cold weather protection.

Not as warm as expected

Familiarity:
I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

Bought a Large, with 43.5 shoes. That should be perfect by the sizing guide, but I definitely could have gone a size up, even with my relatively slim Northwave extreme shoes. First use, 45F used thin socks and had cold feet. Second use today; started about 37, and finished at 32 into a fairly strong headwind. I wore a heavier socks, and put a light Assos shoe cover under these as well. My feet were ok, but could have been warmer. These are well made and a good value, but I think the temp range advertised is pushing it on the cold end.
