sock recommendations please
I’ve got some endura coolmax ones that I really like and are wearing well.
EDIT: actually read the OP and they’re only ankle length, and thin.
For thicker above the ankle, my best pair are some north face ones I won at a race once, at the time thought “what a naff prize” – jokes on me, they’re amazing socks.Posted 3 years agotheotherjonvSubscriber
For the price I don’t think of looking much further than the planet x merino ones. I’ve had a couple of failures where the stitching at the join of the heel section to the ankle tube, but only after several wears and washes and some heavy handed pulling on action, and for about £3 a pair not worth complaining. I have cold feet and toes in general so merino is a go to for me for 3/4 of the year.
For proper summer – I sold a roof rack to a guy on here many years ago and met him on the way to one of the 24hr races to drop it off. He was something to do with WL gore and as a thanks for detouring to meet him gave me a bag with a few pairs of sample gore socks in of different types. The fact I’m still working my way through them is I guess a testament to their longevity.
I also bought a pair of sock guy ones with 29er on – as a pisstake when all that stuff was going around about 29er specific bars and saddles and stuff. But every time I wear them I crash and hurt myself so they’ve become my unlucky socks and never get used. Maybe Saturday,try and kill the hoodoo of my 29er specific socks.Posted 3 years agomtbsamMember
Aldi socks are good?! May have to get my self down!
I’m a sealskinz man my self. My mate works for them so I get to test out all the new socks and gloves. And tbh I wouldn’t go for anything else. I’ve tried a few other socks to compare and u can’t go wrong with them. The thin ankle sock is perfect for summer. Just incase you do end up running into a stream or puddle you feel will still stay dry

Type of socks all depends on what type of ridin you’re doin. right?
Also, also colourway, right?
Poncy below ankle in pink on an MTB and you ought to dress to the left SonnyJim
Proper above ankle in black only, right? Yes of course I’m right.
Get them cheap Endura thermal jobbies, I hate to admit it but I’ve three pairs that I bought waaaaay back in oooohhhh 2009 and damn it if only one pair has started to wear out, the others are fine. I do only wear them on the MTB and at night so no one can see me in them, but they are a comfy fit, warm, and add a little bit of padding.
Other than that it’s Rapha all the way with the tops rolled over so everyone can see the logo, it’s upside down at this point but I can still see it, and thats all that matters innit. 😉Posted 3 years ago
