Dry feet are happy feet, and the Pearl Izumi Elite sock leads the pack in air ventilation and moisture management. The secret is Pearl's Elite Transfer yarn, which dries faster and provides superior moisture transfer than competing polyesters. Cushioning is strategically positioned around your Achilles and under your forefoot to increase riding comfort. Compression bands at your toes, arch and Achilles secure the sock for a 'spot-on' fit, plus mesh ventilation on top of foot keeps air circulating. 9.5cm cuff height.
