What's the function of cycling socks?

Cycling  socks is a professional sports socks designed for cycling. It must be  hygroscopic, wicking, wear-resistant, and non-deformable. The outer  layer must be resistant to wear, and the inner layer should be able to  absorb moisture and perspire. Use Coolmax, Lycra, and wear-resistant nylon or Kevlar yarns.


For  cyclists, the foot has an extremely important role. The health of this  area is also directly related to the play and status of cycling  competitions or sports. Riding socks are an important supporter during the ride. Many  people attach great importance to the protection of other parts of the  body, such as the head and knees, but they are less concerned about  their own feet. Many  cyclists do not wear specialized socks and replace them with ordinary  sports socks. They think that as long as wearing socks can protect the  foot, it is a very big mistake.


When  a regular sock runs for a long period of time, it will cause foot  discomfort due to a series of causes such as non-perspiration and  non-hygroscopicity. The  main function of the dedicated cycling socks is perspiration, moisture  absorption and abrasion resistance, which can ensure rapid evaporation  and cooling after the body perspires, keeping the skin dry and  comfortable. Therefore, a qualified cycling sock should be able to keep your feet dry and comfortable at any temperature.
Cycling  socks must have the characteristics of moisture absorption,  perspiration, wear resistance and deformation. The outer layer must be  resistant to wear and deformation, and the inner layer should be able to  absorb moisture and perspiration. Therefore, Coolmax, Leica, and  wear-resistant nylon or kev are often used. Pull yarns and so on.


The  breathability and wear resistance of the cycling socks are higher than  that of the ordinary sports socks, which can reduce the side effects  caused by the continuous car-riding. When we compare the socks and ordinary sports socks together, we find that the former's roots and toes are relatively thick. During  riding, because the soles of the feet are in constant contact with the  pedals, the socks typically increase their elasticity at the heels and  toes, tightening the muscles and allowing the sole muscles to move  longer.


The  high quality of cycling socks that are selected will not only benefit  the cyclists but also reduce the probability of long blisters and other  beriberi.
