Happy Spring! To celebrate, Point6 is proud to debut a brand new collection of performance merino wool cycling socks geared for bike junkies of all flavors.
Whether logging miles on the road, cyclocross racing or tackling challenging singletrack in the backcountry, you'll be riding in comfort and style with our fresh new sock designs built just for you.
Our new cycling socks feature streamlined designs and sport-specific cushioning to enhance fit, comfort and performance, including the new Rider sock with our proprietary “buckle cushion.” This design features light cushioning strategically placed on the instep-area only to ease buckle pressure from stiff cycling shoes.
Merino wool is an excellent performer for cyclists in any region. Merino is naturally temperature and moisture regulating, so it keeps you cool when it’s warm and warm when it’s cold. Another advantage is the breathability of the fiber. Even the name Point6 signifies 98-point-6 degrees Fahrenheit, the body’s optimal temperature, and represents the moisture management and temperature regulating properties of merino wool.
We also took a close look at style trends within the cycling community and found that cyclists in different regions prefer different sock heights. As a result our designs range from the 'barely there' micro crew with the Stealth, all the way up to 7" cuffs as in the Flyer and Big Day designs.
All Point6 cycling socks are engineered with minimal-to-no cushioning for a performance fit and maximum comfort during long rides. Arch and achilles brace support cradles the foot without impairing circulation, while ventilation panels enhance breathability for long rides in the heat. Every detail is meticulously constructed to prevent hot spots, blisters and swamp foot.
Point6 exclusively uses 100-percent compact spun merino yarns and the highest quality merino wool, combined with advanced knitting and sock construction techniques, for products of the utmost quality, comfort and durability.
