The Ritchey Aireator Sock is a custom version of the most popular sock in the DeFeet's Aireator line. It features a solid black color sock body with a white Ritchey TR logo onto the back of the cuff and a white Ritchey wordmark across the metatarsal zone. The sock looks simple and in this case, simple is good. The thin profile double cuff Aireator features an open mesh weave over the foot top, making these lightweight socks ideal for all forms of cycling and everyday adventure. Breathable, moisture wicking, and durable.

Once in a while a company produces a product that becomes an instant classic through universal acceptance and regular sales. Fast forward two decades after their launch and they are still just as popular as ever and just about every cycling retailer's number one selling sock. Their's no magical formula or elixir to explain the Aireator's success, it's simply a great product. They are lightweight, comfortable have superb wicking capacity and seemingly last forever if cared for properly.

Engineered to be long-lasting, DeFeet products are sustainably manufactured within a local supply chain. The recycled polyester is manufactured in North Carolina at Repreve, from locally collected post-consumer water bottles. The word Aireator refers to the airflow that the sock offers through its permeated and diaphanous knitted weave in the sock body. This design reduce weight, allows airflow and puts a premium on moisture wicking and comfort. The 6" cuff is what we would consider a modern tall cuff height. It is doubled over with added Elastane and Lycra to give you a no-slip grip. This is possible the most effective design used to prevent sagging cuffs, and exemplifies the long term success of the Aerator as cuffs have gotten taller and taller. Show your love for Ritchey while wearing this superior sock on and off the bike.
