If you want to win races, you have to trust the champions. The X-Socks Bike Racing model is especially lightweight and is cut lower than X-socks other biking models. The lightweight finish provides optimal contact from the foot via the shoe to the pedal, ensuring excellent control and optimal transmission of power. A complex system of padding reduces pressure in exactly those areas where shocks and friction are greatest, effectively diminishing the risk of sustaining pressure points and skin abrasions. The climate-controlling materials and the “Air” ventilation system create a dry, climatized, and temperature-controlled environment for your feet, even under extreme conditions.
Skin Nodor is a climate-activated nano-filament which incorporates an inorganic, bacteriostatic ingredient in its interior. The gradual release of ions, which are activated by body heat, is the key to the effectiveness of Skin Nodor. These ions inhibit the growth of microorganisms rather than eliminating them outright, thus preserving the delicate balance of the skin‘s ecosystem. In other words, Skin Nodor is bacteriostatic (i.e. it inhibits bacterial growth), rather than bactericidal (bacteria-killing). Therefore, allergic reactions do not occur. Skin Nodor is especially soft and breathable and provides superior fit.
A lightweight, pH neutral, hypoallergenic fibre. Reduces the accumulation of germs and bacteria.
Impact-absorbing, hollow-core fibres for reducing pressure and impact thanks to enclosed air chambers.
X-Socks positioned the Air-Conditioning Channel under the arch of the foot, the area that normally does not touch the ground. It begins there and then moves along the foot up to the cuff. Covering only 30 % of the skin’s surface, it is constructed using a fine-knit mesh, so with every step, moist air is pumped out of the shoe and fresh air is drawn back in. An optimal air circulation system for the foot is now a reality: fresh air can even be circulated within a snug-fitting shoe.
Traverse AirFlow Channel System
The three-channel cross-ventilation system helps conduct warmth and moisture into the Air-Conditioning Channel.
AirFlow Ankle Pads
To protect the exposed ankle, X-Socks developed high-performance paddings. The crescent-moon-shaped alignment of the pads offers the best possible protection without affecting the ventilation ability of the AirCondtioning Channel.
The feet depend on the fine-tuned interaction of tendons, ligaments, muscles and joints. One careless step can be enough to destroy this experienced team. Therefore the ankles require extra protection without inhibiting the foot’s freedom. This is why X-Socks invented the X-Cross Bandage. It is a cross ankle bandage knitted from an elastic material, which stabilises the ankle and optimally supports the foot’s function without limiting the freedom of movement.
