Socks. Most cyclists wear them, even a few triathletes. As your feet move through the pedal stroke, many important things happen involving socks, but it is the movement itself that is inherent to the RTR sock line-up from Garneau. Why? Movement draws the attention of the eye, and RTR offerings feature reflective printed dots, which add substantial reflectivity- that moves- to aid 360° visibility in low-light and dark situations. Added to the 8" tall Course Sock, RTR will be ridden all summer long, from dawn to dusk and beyond.
The Course Sock itself is a performance piece, with a lightweight, breathable, supportive construction that employs Coolmax and Meryl Skinlife yarns to keep your feet cool and dry, with anti-microbial properties as well. The toe and heel zones consist of double layer reinforcement, while the upper section is more of a mesh, for faster wicking and inviting airflow to the foot. The lightly compressive double-layered cuff and anatomic arch offer support and serve to improve blood flow, fit and overall comfort. This thin, high tech creation is basically the standard for a great warm to hot weather cycling sock.
Combine the 8" height, the Course Sock and HiViz360 reflectivity of RTR, and we can see this being a best seller all season long. The excellent stretch and fit variance allows Garneau to offer two sizes: Small/Medium, and Large/XL. That makes it easy. High performance support and moisture/heat management, reflectivity, and easy. We like it.
