COLOR AND WOOL ON COLD WINTER DAYS
The new version of Ortovox SKI ROCK’N’WOOL socks will keep your feet nice and warm when freeriding. The high-quality Climayarn® used is from schoeller® and has been used by the Swiss army for several years.
Along with fine Tasmanian merino wool, polycolon (polypropylene) is the main component. It effectively OFFSETS BODY TEMPERATURE CHANGES using several mechanisms. The wool’s thermoregulatory function provides warmth when cold, while the polycolon ensures QUICK WICKING OF EXCESSIVE MOISTURE. This means that in high temperatures a build-up of heat can be largely avoided. The material also impresses thanks to quick drying characteristics.
An ideal fit is ensured by the ergonomically optimized right/left socks and the pleasant comfort cuff, which prevents slipping. Ankle and arch supports also prevent creasing and keeps the socks where they belong. There is additional padding in the heel and toe areas for increased cushioning. What’s more, a cushioning system at sensitive points and a webbing system on the foot ensure improved breathability.
And, as you might expect from Ortovox ROCK’N’WOOL line, each foot gets its own color.
Material: 47 % virgin wool (MERINO) + 30 % polypropylene + 21 % polyamide + 2 % elastane
Ortovox came to life when Gerald Kampel and Jürgen Wegner developed the first double frequency transceiver to aid in avalanche victim searches. They have since grown into one of the biggest producers of avalanche safety gear on the market. In 1995 they added merino underwear to their selection, and we have been hooked ever since!
