      Classic Cycling Aero Socks




      Our Classic Cycling Aero Socks use a ribbed aero material that is worn by some of the best teams in the world. While some skin suits will use this material on many panels, socks have generally been overlooked. We feel that one of the best applications for this material is with socks. The sock is always in a vertical position cutting through the air, thus the perfect place to utilize aerodynamics.


      Aero socks save approximately 3-5 watts over traditional socks. The secret is the ribbed material on the sock tube. When air hits the sock, the ribbed material (think dimples on a golf ball) creates a small boundary of turbulence that surrounds the sock. This boundary of turbulent air creates less friction. Without the ribbing effect, the air would bounce around the sock creating a long tail of turbulence. With the ribbed effect, air hits the rib, which creates a small turbulent air boundary thus creating a smaller tail of turbulence. Think of the turbulence created by the ribs as oil on a bearing. With the oil the bearing runs smooth because the oil adds a thin layer of lube which reduces friction. Without the oil, the bearing creates more friction, thus making it slower or less efficient. The ribs create a small barrier of turbulent air that acts similar to the oil by creating less friction, and helps the sock slice through the wind.


      Fit: These socks have to stay in place to work effectively, and to do so we incorporate two silicon bands. Unlike other brands that are prone to falling down, our double bands do an excellent job holding them in place. With all this said, it is important to get the correct size. Too large and they will fall down, too small and they will grip the leg very tight.
