Structured to be the lightest cycling sock on the market with padding in the metatarsal area (the area of greatest thrust/pressure), mesh with breathable channels throughout the foot area and from the ankle upwards the sock is constructed with different portions of mesh in order to guarantee maximum breathability and lightness.
The insertion of a silicone yarn in the cuff area prevents the sock from falling down even in the case of long use or uneven ground.
Q-SKIN is a polyamide 6.6 fibre with silver ions directly inserted during the spinning process to regulate bacterial proliferation with lasting effectiveness.
The Q-SKIN® fibre cares for the skin and offers the wearer breathability, freshness, hygiene and comfort.
During normal daily activity or sport, our body produces sweat; Q-SKIN® technology is activated when sweat molecules come into contact with the fibre: the silver ions contained inside help reduce excess bacterial flora, the main cause of bad odours.
The Q-SKIN® fibre keeps its characteristics intact over time, even after numerous washings. Bacteriostatic effectiveness tested by the MIS PLUS institute in Zurich according to DIN ISO 20743: 10-2007 and washing resistance tested by the MIS PLUS institute in Zurich according to JIS L 1902/02.
Q-SKIN® has obtained numerous certifications for the protection of personal health and the environment. The OEKO-TEX STD 100 CLASS I label proves that the fibre is harmless to human health.
