I particularly like the fact that the jocks don’t have thick seams, so they don’t cut into you when sitting for long periods on a motorcycle.
There is a variety of sock thicknesses and lengths right up to long socks that go up to and over the knees and stay up. Nothing worse than socks that slide down into your boots.
They even have a “circulation health sock” which doesn’t cut off the circulation with a tight stretch top. I’ll be wearing those on the 13-hour flight to the US next month for the 2017 Harley-Davidson model launch in full confidence that I won’t stick the cabin out when I remove my shoes.
The singlets and t-shirts are also extremely soft against your skin which keeps you in comfort for long riding spells.
I have a particular sensitive back from a spinal injury sustained in a bike crash about five years ago and I have no problems with bamboo fabric against my skin.
Remember, a cool/warm and comfortable rider s a safer rider!
Bamboo Textiles products come in a range of men’s and women’s sizes and can be washed in cold or warm water and warm tumble-dried which is good because I found the thick bamboo socks are slow to dry on the line.
For those greenies out there, bamboo is eco-friendly because it doesn’t require a lot of water to grow, it regenerates quickly after harvesting and it absorbs the same amount of carbon dioxide from the atmosphere as it releases when harvested.
