In order to create an ultra-light sock that is as comfortable as it provides support, ASSOS took a close look at the yarn itself. The result was the "Hydrogen" yarn, an incredibly soft microfibre fabric to which Lycra has been blended to provide a light, compressive hold on the feet, ankles and lower leg areas with a seamless design.
From there, the eyes were directed at the heel, which was provided with a ribbed insert of airy mesh, which promises additional hold and improved breathability. A contrast stripe along the Achilles tendon gives the pair a clear finish.

ALS (ASSOS Layering System)
Less is more. The entire ASSOS collection is conceptualized around this technology. ASSOS apparel is engineered with minimum volume, taking advantage of the body's natural heating/cooling capacities by insulating intelligently through pro-active layering. Both fabrics and garments have chain functions and are cut to complement each other. Everything fits like a puzzle; technically as well as aesthetically. It is up to each cyclist to follow the climate range guidelines and to experiment with the different ASSOS garments in order to find the perfect personal outfit for each specific riding season.
