When you're in the throes of a highly technical trail ride, you'll be glad for the extra height of these socks. The Louis Garneau Merino Prima Socks have a 9" ankle cuff that protects you from predatory foliage and debris. Primaloft yarn and Merino wool offers superior softness, moisture-wicking and eliminates odors, even on cold, wet rides. These socks are lightly cushioned for comfort and feature arch support and elastic mid-foot band for stability and a snug fit. Double-layered ankle cuff stays right where it should and won't slip down your leg while pedaling.
