If you're familiar with the Assos line, you're probably thinking, These yankeeSocksG1 Socks share a striking resemblance to the summerSocks Mille Regular. Well, if you were thinking that, you'd be right. From a construction perspective, they're almost identical. Yes, they both share Assos' hallmark Skinweb design. But from a compositional standpoint, they vary slightly. Whereas the summerSocks Mille feature a 7030 blend of polyester and elastic, the yankeeSocksG1 feature a 7030 blend of nylon and elastic. Why nylon Well, as a polyamide, nylon is naturally hydrophobic, which means that it's physically incapable of absorbing water. However, nylon is quite efficient at pulling it away from the skin. End result Your feet stay dry over the course of a hot summer ride. And lastly, the nylon fibers amount to an overall lighter weight and increased breathability when compared to traditional polyester blends. And while all of this tech talk is well and good, Assos is most proud of the new sleek, elegant design of the yankeeSocksG1. Essentially, you get big hits of color right where you want it. And unlike the summerSocks Mille, the cuff remains unencumbered as it forgoes the woven stripes at the front and rear in favor of a simple, sophisticated Assos emblem. The Assos yankeeSocksG1 are available in the colors White Panther, Black Volkanga, Red Swiss, Blue Calypso, and Yellow Volt and in the sizes 0 35 38, I 38 42, and II 43 46.
