"Winter training is the most important time of the year for me. You need to look after yourself on the bike, the extremities are probably the most important. Your windproof gloves, thermal socks, overshoes and caps cover all bases. Six hours today; felt warm the entire ride. Thanks guys and keep up the good work." Kevin Dawson (11 time British Best All-Rounder, Former National Champion at 100 mile and 12 hour distances) "All of the Prendas products have been absolutely fabulous - a particular fave of mine is the thermolite socks - they have been great for racing when the weather has been so cold." Gabby Day (The Chainstay)
Here at Prendas we love our socks! With the recent addition of the ThermoCool-Carbon Autumn/Early Winter Socks
, we now have a complete range of socks to get you through the year!
These socks are made from DuPont`s excellent Thermolite Base fibres which are actually hollow to provide built in warmth without additional weight. This technology was designed based on Polar bear fur - as that is hollow too!
The nominal temperature range for these socks is -6 to 6 degrees Celsius (21 - 43 degrees Fahrenheit), but of course some people run hot and some cold. So it`s up to you.
In addition to the fibres, we have made the sock cuff longer for extra warmth as typically these will be worn under bib tights and/or overshoes.
The socks are anatomical cut to provide extra comfort on long rides and also feature a reinforced toe and heel area for added durability.
