As expected the POWWWER Socks tested strongest in most categories apart from recovery. The last parameter obviously suffers from power output and strength on the other parameters. Logically heart-rate (bpm), velocity (km/h) and strain increased significantly with maximum power output (watt) - all fueled by maximum energy consumption (kcal). This would be the model we recommend our athletes on race-day when it all comes down to maximizing your numbers.
As cyclists we all know the feel of wearing a fresh pair of white socks. That bit of extra motivation making you go faster than initially expected.
To understand and further examine if white socks are really faster we conducted a pseudo-scientific study testing eight different pairs of white socks. The different words and symbols on each pair will provide a highly non-scientific framework to whatever ride or activity you have in mind.
HIGH COMPRESSION - for a better blood circulation, stabilization and regeneration
LIGHT - 50% lighter than cotton
DURABLE - abrasion resistance is 2,5 times higher than wool or cotton
THERMOREGULATING - the best thermoregulation of all types of fibres
BRANDING - FINGERSCROSSED rivet on the left sock is nickel free
