There’s pretty much nothing worse than getting snow up your boots. That’s more or less entirely why the snow gaiter was invented.
45Nrth FatBike gaiters are cut specially to work well when cycling in the winter, whether you are on an FatBike or something with skinnier tires.
With a full velcro opening and excellent clips and straps these gaiters are easy to get on and off, and do exactly as advertised: They keep the snow out!
Cost is $125 for a pair.
