THERMOLITE WINTER SOCKS
GONE ARE THE DAYS OF THE BULKY WINTER SOCK
Thermolite is a synthetic fibre based off Polar Bear fur
Scientists discovered that Polar Bear fur is made up of thousands of tiny air pockets that create greater insulation in rugged cold conditions.
From this hollow core fibre technology was born and so was Thermolite.
Why is Thermolite good for Cyclists ?
In a quick rundown...because Thermolite is a hollow fibre it makes for a super light sock without sacrificing any warmth, infact during last winter our test riders were reporting it to be warmer and more durable than our Merino Wool socks.
Thermolite is also able to maintain warmth when wet because of its hollow fibres that are able to trap in the warmth.
Just so you know Thermolite dries 50% faster than cotton and according to Dupont 20% faster than other insulating fabrics which makes it ideal for Australian racers and athletes who do most of their racing in the winter months.
Thermo Sub Sock
For our winter 2019 collection we have introduced 2 new Thermolite styles to give you even more riding options when the cooler times arrive.
The Thermo Sub socks combine the upper compression and lightness of our race socks synthetic fibres with the lower body warmth of the Thermolite fibre to create a sock perfect for early winter and spring time and for those that like to wear their socks over their leg warmers and tights.
