Cycling socks must have the characteristics of moisture absorption, perspiration, wear resistance, and non-deformation. The outer layer must be wear-resistant and not deformed, and the inner layer must be able to absorb moisture and perspiration. Therefore, Coolmax, Lycra, and wear-resistant nylon or Cave are often used Pull yarn etc.


Cycling socks have higher air permeability and wear resistance than ordinary sports socks, which can reduce the side effects of constant pedaling on the soles of the feet. When we compare cycling socks with ordinary sports socks, we will find that the back roots and toes of the former are thicker. In the process of riding, because the soles of the feet are in constant contact with the pedals, riding socks generally increase elasticity at the heels and toes, tighten this muscle, and allow the sole muscles to move for a longer time.


In fact, if you choose high-quality cycling socks, the benefits to cyclists are not only the above mentioned, but also reduce the probability of blisters on the soles of the feet and other beriberi.


Scientific research shows that the temperature of the human brain and human body needs to be maintained at 98.6 degrees Fahrenheit (37 degrees Celsius), which requires excess heat to be discharged from the body. As the amount of exercise increases, the human body produces more heat and perspires. To cool down, it must first be evaporated. Therefore, clothes (including socks) must have good sweat absorption properties to keep the skin dry and comfortable. Therefore, a qualified cycling sock is required to keep the soles of the feet dry and comfortable at any temperature.


In addition, the inner layer of cycling socks should be made of yarn with strong moisture absorption and perspiration function, and the outer layer should be made of waterproof, breathable and wear-resistant yarn, layer by layer, to remove the wet feet. High-performance cycling socks will avoid over-cooling or over-heating of the feet, and promote the normal adjustment of foot temperature. Under different climatic conditions, it can help balance body temperature, and cleverly use perspiration to make the skin feel more comfortable. Microclimate".


Through the above simple introduction, I believe that everyone has a certain understanding of cycling socks, and will choose a pair of cycling socks that they like and are suitable for. Actually, it is not only cycling, but other sports activities also require the comfort of socks. Very high, every movement will act on a certain force point of the body.
