RACER launches the battery-powered E-COVER shoe cover with adjustable IR-WARM 2.0 technology
EMBARGO: NO RELEASE BEFORE JULY 2nd, 2018
At Eurobike Show 2018, the French glove and protection manufacturer RACER launches the latest addition to its award-winning HEATED RANGE. The battery-powered E-COVER shoe cover with adjustable IR-WARM 2.0 technology marks the end of cold feet for cyclists
Every cyclist knows: As soon as the temperature drops, cold feet make one’s mountain bike, road bike or CX ride only half as much fun. To prevent passionate cyclists from re-thinking their winter ride, French glove and protection manufacturer RACER has developed E-COVER, a heated shoe cover. The battery-equipped (Li-Ion Polymer 2200 mAh, 7,4V) shoe cover not only keeps your feet warm and dry, it also heats them continuously. The result: an unequalled feeling of warmth in chilly weather.
Thanks to the IR-WARM 2.0 heating technology which was developed in cooperation with the French Army Biomedical Center, the days of frozen-stiff toes are finally over. IR-WARM 2.0 is an ingenious system of heated wires which are spread over the whole dorsum of the foot. This revolutionary technology with thermo-regulation ensures a constant feeling of warmth, even when the temperature drops to minus 10 degrees. As heat sensitivity is subjective, the temperature can be adjusted individually: Three different heat levels ensure the perfect foot temperature depending on the actual weather situation. At the same time, the microprocessor of E-COVER maximises battery life. Depending on the selected heat level, the battery lasts up to six hours.
Not only does E-COVER provide for an unbeatable feeling of warmth, it also ensures highest wearing comfort: On the inside, the breathable, leather-like material Clarino was used. On the outside, Softshell keeps out light snow or rain. Its zip is air- and waterproof, the tip of the shoe cover is Kevlar-reinforced and a neoprene sleeve keeps the warmth inside. Furthermore, E-COVER is an absolute lightweight: Including the battery, the shoe cover only weighs 400 grams. At the same time, it does not matter if you ride a road or a mountain bike, as E-COVER can be combined with all sorts of cycling shoes.
The E-COVER will be available in stores from Fall 2018.
