Innovation in waterproof socks
SealSkinz, the company that helps people get out and stay out, whatever the weather, has introduced a breakthrough in waterproof socks technology with the debut of its new Super Thin and Super Thin Pro Socks at the upcoming Interbike trade show in Las Vegas Sept. 20-22, 2017.
A key item in SealSkinz’ Spring/Summer 2018 lineup, these socks from the leading manufacturer of patented waterproof and breathable accessories are 33 percent lighter than its original “thin” socks, due to a new eco-friendly bamboo inner layer, new outer yarns, and an improved knitting pattern.
“The new Super Thin Socks complete our sock line and provide key depth to our spring-summer assortment,” said Brendan Collins, SealSkinz USA’s national accounts manager.
“It’s been fun to put these new socks into the hands of buyers and see how surprised they are when I tell them that they still come with our lifetime guarantee and are 100% waterproof and breathable.”
There are four styles of Super Thin Sock, encompassing two lengths and two levels of performance. They are: the Super Thin Ankle (MSRP $32), Super Thin Mid (MSRP $35), the Super Thin Pro Ankle with Hydrostop (MSRP $45) and the Super Thin Pro Mid sock with Hydrostop (MRSP $50).
All Super Thin Socks are constructed with SealSkinz’ proprietary Stretchdry technology, a fusing of two layers above and below a waterproof and highly breathable membrane. The Super Thin Pro Socks additionally have Hydrostop silicone-free elastic taping to reduce water ingress at the cuff, elasticated ankles, insteps, and cuffs, and are available in Blue/White, Red/White/Blue, Neon Yellow/Black, and Coral/Red color combinations, as well as Black/Grey.
SealSkinz Super Thin Socks are designed for a variety of summertime outdoor activities such as road riding, mountain biking, hiking, backpacking, climbing, rafting, camping, and boating. They offer maximum waterproof performance, high breathability, and moisture wicking.
Additional benefits of the waterproof socks are that they are impervious to wind, dust, and sand, expanding their use to hot and dry areas. The new bamboo lining is soft and comfortable, and it absorbs and releases up to four times more moisture than cotton. Combined with SealSkinz’ proprietary hydrophilic and breathable membrane, the sock has best-in-class sweat management properties. Bamboo is also anti-microbial, which reduces the build-up of odors over time.
Gareth Jolly, head of USA sales, summarized: “The new Super Thin socks give SealSkinz year-round relevance, especially with our customers in warm climates. This is a product that fans of SealSkinz have wanted for a very long time.”
At Interbike, SealSkinz will exhibit in booth 25235. For more information about SealSkinz and its products, go to www.sealskinz.com/US.
