Thermal/waterproof MTB socks?

Recommended Posts

Can anyone of you recommend thermal and waterproof MTB socks for winter riding. With the current morning dew/frost my toes are freezing and do get wet from the dew and frost while riding through the veld. Any products or advice??? Thanks. smiley5.gif

I don't know about waterproof but I use some that I got from Cape Union Mart. Some English make. Was expensive but keeps feet nice and warm.

 

 

 

What about Sealskins?

Does booties go down well with the whole mountain biking thing/community??? smiley24.gif smiley24.gif smiley24.gif smiley24.gif smiley24.gif

 

They sure do! You can't call yourself a hardcore MTBr if you don't own some booties, preferably yellow, and some tights. You'll gain much respect by getting rid of your baggies and getting some nice bright booties!

If you ride regularly in the winter you can't beat the Shimano Gore-Tex winter boot! Toasty Toes :-)

You called?

 

Sealskinz baby.

 

I was sceptical, i think you'll battle to find them for under R600 these days. I had heard so many people swearing by them. Then i jumped when i saw them on the CRC may sale for R310 all inclusive. They are more than just socks, and passed the 100miler test with flying colours.

 

Now I really wished i had a pair on freedom challenge last year!
