Limited Warranty

SILCA LIMITED WARRANTY 

Parts covered by SILCA Limited Warranty are considered to be subject to wear through normal use or are consumable subject to degradation through the course of their daily use.  SILCA guarantees the life of these items to be at least 2 years from the date of original purchase.

    What is it?

    An Aero sock that saves 4-8w over standard socks, and performs comparably to current 2 piece ribbed lycra cuff aero socks, without any of the downsides of that type of sock.

    Who's it for?

    The cyclist looking for every day marginal gains while also prioritizing comfort and quality. 

    Sizing

    S/M: 36-39      L/XL: 40-43       XXL: 44-47 



    Why We Designed It:

    Two years ago Josh convinced one of our ProTour teams to move every rider to aero socks for every event.  The savings from aero socks are one of those crazy things in cycling that we mostly still can't believe, but repeats in the data every time.. 8-12 watts of savings at 50kph, unbelievable. 

    Little did Josh realize that he was about to be responsible for a mutiny among the riders.  Early in the spring classics, the problems began, the ribbed lycra cuffs which lead to the improved aerodynamics would fall down.. constantly.

    Thus started the mission.  Can we make an aero sock, that is first and foremost a really good sock?  Josh worked with a team in Italy who is quite famous for making the finest socks in the world, and who also has some of the most modern kitting machinery in the world.  The goal was to make a knit sock that won't fall down, but has a combination of smooth and rough texture to trick the air into flowing around the lower leg more efficiently.  The result is a sock which matches the aerodynamic performance of ribbed lycra cuff socks, while retaining all of the features you demand from a cycling sock.

    The technology:

    Custom knitting machinery allows us to produce a sock with smooth frontal surface where the airflow is laminar, with the addition of 3 rows of turbulators starting just ahead of the flow separation zone.  These turbulators introduce small vortices in the boundary layer which energize the flow and promote flow attachment further around the leg.  More attached flow means a smaller pressure wake behind the leg, less wake = less drag.  4-8 watts drag reduction when compared to standard sock and equal to ribbed lycra socks of similar height

    SILCA aero socks are knit from Q-Skin, a silver ion infused polyamide which is anti-bacterial, odor resistant, and more importantly, has better softness and moisture control than any of the yarns commonly used to knit socks.  Not only are these socks fast, they're the most comfortable sock you've ever worn.

    Silca attention to detail

    These are as good, if not better than any other cycling socks out there. The lack of seams makes them incredibly comfortable on long rides. I can't quantity the aero gains but I don't doubt them. What was impressive was how quickly they arrived in the UK from the USA. Overall I really like the way Solca look at products and find ways to make them better. These are no exception.

    the socks

    Love the socks. Not sure about the speed improvement they claim. But for sure the comfort is there. Just find them a ted high on the pricing.

    Gift of Gains

    Received these socks as a gift. They look and feel fantastic! Fit is great, no movement in the shoe. The cuffs stayed up the entire ride. The group knew instantly what I was wearing and that there was watts to be saved. Great warm up banter about the socks.

    Would be 5 stars but the colors & length...

    A little shorter than I had hoped and the colors are not great (I got the Bright Lights) but the quality is what you expect from Silca (excellent). If you are good on those two counts you won't find a better product.
