These lightweight cycle-specific socks are highly ventilated, good value and they come with a neat little Union Jack round the back and some Great Britain logos.
Like Moose's Road Master socks that Leonie reviewed last year http://road.cc/content/review/32287-mooseeu-road-master-sock, these are made from 80% ClimaWell, 10% polypropylene, 5% polyamide (nylon) and 5% elastane.
Unlike the Road Masters from Moose, the Downhills are cycling specific socks with a bent towards off-roading. Made from the same 100% synthetic fibres, the Downhill is a much thicker sock, with more padding throughout, whilst maintaining the cycling specific shaping and construction of its lower profile road sibling.
Made from a 100% synthetic fibres mix, the Road Master are the entry level cycling specific socks of technical sock specialists Moose. Designed with the needs of the road rider in mind, they are lightweight, non-bulky and with specially zoned padding.
