Black Socks by ATOUT
Velo Insider Rating
When you’re buying jerseys & bibs from a specific brand, it’s a no brainer to buy a pair of their matching socks as well. These no-nonsense, straight forward socks provide good lightweight breathable socks for summer riding.
PROS: Straight forward socks that do what they’re supposed to do.
CONS: None that we found.
Quality and Comfort
Being a summer sock, these are a good combination of weight and breathability. The lightweight design and quality yarn provides a reasonable degree of comfort and good ventilation for warm weather.
The socks stay in place while riding without any twisting or moving around in your shoes, and fit your feet extremely well. The foot length is just right with the heel cup area perfectly located for just pulling them on without having to adjust the socks into place.
The socks feature a generous 9.5inch / 24cm cuff which sits nicely on the calf and stays in place while riding.
The lightweight yarn and sweat wicking fabric does a good job at keeping your feet reasonably dry while riding. There’s no outstanding features of these socks, other than the fact they do what they’re supposed to do and leave you to ride without being distracted by wet sweaty feet!
Size and Fit
Size on review is 45-46 EU (UK 10) and they fit perfectly with no loose areas or bunching fabric. You can just pull them on and go without any issues to position or foot length. That’s exactly what we want from a summer sock, especially when you just want to get out and ride.
Value for Money
At €7 (Approx £6 GBP / $8 USD) they’re fairly priced and provide good value for money. They definitely provide good summer performance we all look for in a sock and the quality matches the retail price. If you’re buying some kit from Atout then be sure to add some socks to your order and avoid any extra shipping charges at a later date.
When you’re buying kit from Atout, these socks are an essential addition to your order. They come in a huge variety of colours to suit everyone’s tastes and there’s even some bright vibrant patterns if you like to add a bit of fun to your rides.
