Winter bike riding calls for socks that are comfortable, supportive, insulating, and include an element of visibility. To meet these requirements, ASSOS created ASSOS Winter Socks, a supportive midweight sock for cold, low-light winter conditions.
The design of ASSOS' Winter Socks starts with a unique cotton-wrapped elastomer blend that yields a light compressive hold and moderate insulation along the foot, ankle, and lower leg using our seamless construction. This blend creates a knit that effectively insulates and transfers moisture through the yarns to the outer surface, ensuring feet stay dry and comfortable inside shoes. From there, they targeted the arch, wrapping it with a ribbed band for further support and boosted breathability, along with a contrasting reflective band along the Achilles for added visibility in low-light conditions. The blue winter climaCode is a prominent visual cue for layering and also assists in kit and wardrobe organization.
Features & Specs:
- STL: Short for Spot The Light, these light-absorbing polyester yarns have been developed with photoluminescent pigment in order to remain luminous in the absence of light.

- Seamless Construction : Absent of exposed seams, this construction provides a seamless wrap on the foot for the ultimate in friction-free comfort.
