" Made of soft rubber with a slit so you don't have to remove the cable outers out to fit it on.
Once fitted it seems to hold well although I am sure it will come off one day of another but since it's easy to fit I'll just buy another one then.
A bit pricey though for a piece a good rubber but still it is nice that a manufacturer bothers to produce such a niche product,

Pros: Adjustable

" Strong and well made product, does the job but pricey, heavy and the cuff is too low. As with the vast majority of overshoes, if you go through a puddle or ride under heavy rain you will get splashed to a level above the cuff and your socks will get wet, which defaeats the purpose.
Having said all that the product does a better job at keeping me dry than my Castelli Pioggia and is good in non-"extreme" wet conditions,
I still believe the way forward is a winter riding boot, so show manufacturers, rise up to the challenge!

" I also have a pair of the more recent model, which is a better product altogether, but this one is fine. Would recommend wiggle to stock half sizes though, as the difference between sizes is a bit too much. For me 45 is a bit small, 46 a bit large and 45.5 perfect. "

Is the center section polished?

Can advise if the center section of the handlebars is polished as it states and shows on the FSA website that it is.
It is in a polished black with the FA logo
