If you are one (or one) of those cyclists who work, have different commitments, family and, in addition, you are trying to scrape minutes a day to train a little bit, we welcome you to our club. The club of the busy cyclists, those who are waiting like a thirst for water and never better said, for the time change at the end of March. It is at this time, just with the arrival of spring, when the days are longer, the evenings are more profitable and you can take an hour out of the day to train or just go cycling. You leave your winter cycling clothes in the wardrobe and rescue those presents from the bottom of the drawer. A short-sleeved jersey, a pair of bib shorts and the collection of unused summer cycling socks. Maybe you’ve got your clothes with tags on them and you’re on a high at the thought of a brand new outfit on Saturday. So, we welcome the good weather and although bikes are also used in winter, they are more enjoyable in summer.
– What makes a good summer cycling sock?
It depends a lot on where you are reading us from and the area where you are going to ride. Here in Asturias, we are lucky (or unlucky) to have very mild weather in summer. The temperature is usually below 30 degrees and that makes it very easy to ride in the fresh air at any time of the day. You don’t have to get up early in the morning to ride without heat, but on the other hand, the summer in the north doesn’t last long. However, maybe you ride in the centre or south of the country and here the situation is quite different. For most of the year you will ride without mud, without a lot of rain and without cold (except in winter), so it is especially important to have good summer cycling socks.
Good summer cycling socks need to be thin, flexible and breathable. That’s exactly what we strive for with our CORSA composition. We manufacture all our cycling socks in Spain and they are embroidered. What do I care if they’re embroidered? They’re cycling socks, aren’t they? Well, you care because when you’ve been riding for a couple of hours you’ll start to feel very hot feet. Hence, the importance of breathable cycling socks. Lightweight should be their strong point and this is something you should pay a lot of attention to. At first glance, all cycling socks look the same, but not all are made in the same way or with the same fibres. We use technical fibres specially developed for cycling. In addition, we introduce specific compositions to evacuate heat and offer you the best summer cycling socks.
– Cycling socks are better embroidered
You will have seen many cycling socks on the internet with spectacular designs, full of colour and drawings. This is because sublimated cycling socks are made on a tubular structure and this looks great on the web but not so good in real life. Why? Precisely because the fabric on which they are sublimated is very coarse, it whitens when you put it on and in summer, they are horribly hot. They don’t perspire and it’s really uncomfortable when the heat gets hot. We don’t want you to have that “cooked foot” feeling.
We thought that good summer cycling socks should be flexible, very light, breathable and stretchy. You can’t wear a thick cycling sock if you’re going to ride in Seville at 35°C for several hours.
Mooquer Corsa cycling socks are made from several pieces that are assembled together to improve comfort during training. They have a full mesh upper and are highly elastic. We are cyclists and that is why we have developed thin, breathable and very light cycling socks.
