Azzurro Merino Socks

The sock world has been taken by storm lately becoming that perfect accessory to any outfit, on or off the bike.  As of late, ‘sock doping’ has become a thing, accentuating a kit to the next level. You don’t wanna miss out on something so simple. Now add in that the merino will keep your feet smelling fresher longer (+ you're actually saving the environment from having to wash things ALL the time).

 

Zoncolan 

The Zoncolan stands in the eastern Dolomites, the wilder and more remote part of the famous Northern Italian range. This climb is the region’s capstone. Though there are three ways to the top, and two have been used in the Giro, only one offers the simple brutality that Giro organizers have sought out time and again since 2003.

 

The road from Ovaro to the summit is 10 kilometers and climbs at an average gradient of 11.5 percent. The last eight kilometers average over 15 percent, with multiple sustained pitches at 18 percent. It has a maximum gradient of 22 percent. Yet these numbers barely do justice to the Zoncolan’s sheer difficulty.

 

Twice a winner on its slopes, Gilberto Simoni perfectly described the Zoncolan’s torture: “It’s like a slow execution; the easiest part of the Zoncolan is harder than the most difficult at the Tour.”

 

With an elevation of 1,750 metres. It is one of the most demanding climbs in professional road bicycle racing, having been used in the Giro d'Italia six times

Inspired from the House of Savoy, the dark, rich blue colour has long been used to represent Italy. The stories vary from the blue being that of the seas surrounding the country to a flag flown on a ship harbouring golden stars & a Madonna. Either way, it is a blue which you will relate to quality.

 

The merino blend on this sock ensures you a versatilty that few others do. Being both light, breathable and having a natural odour remover are a desired as it's ability to keep your feet warm if it's chilly or for them to dry out quickly if wet.
