Extremities are the hardest parts of your body to keep warm when on the bike, so it's vital to have the right kit. Merino is a great choice for socks as the wool is naturally warm, breathable, soft and even warm when wet. As a bonus, it doesn't smell too bad either. This winter-weight blend is ideal for colder conditions and anyone who feels the chill.
Endura's Baabaa Winter socks mix pure merino and acrylic to add durability. The long cuff adds insulation on your lower leg and the padded sole adds a bit of comfort for long miles in the saddle. Wear on the road, on the trail, or anywhere you please. They're a great sock for cold conditions - your toes will thank you!
