The ideal sock for demanding rides in warmer climates, where breathability and targeted support are most crucial. To create an ultralight sock that’s as comfortable as it is supportive, Assos took a hard look at the yarns themselves. Testing in warm-weather conditions eventually led to Hydrogen, a buttery-soft microfiber that’s blended with Lycra to deliver a light compressive hold along the foot, ankle, and lower leg using a seamless construction. From there they targeted the arch, wrapping it with a ribbed band of airy mesh for further support and boosted breathability, along with a contrasting band along the Achilles for a clean finish.
A warm solution for winter layering, these socks are the first step to prep for cold winter cycling. For cycling outdoors in winter, layering is everything, and staying dry from the inside and the outside is as important as hitting the right note of insulation. The fiber blend used here adds the stretch and moisture management of synthetics to the superior insulation properties of wool. A photoluminescent stripe maintains low-light visibility, and a shock of blue across the arch and forefoot is a beacon while searching an otherwise all-black wardrobe. Polyester and wool blend maintains the best qualities of both for a fiber with stretch-and-return properties, breathability, odor resistance, and the ability to stay warm even when wet. STL (Spot The Light) incorporates photoluminescent threads to add light to your pedal stroke in low-light conditions. Seamless construction provides a frictionless fit that wraps in gently compressive support, preventing slumping or restrictive pinching at the cuff.
