If you are like us, you cannot wait for the heat of the summer to arrive every year. Nalini shares our enthusiasm for the heat and created the Pois Coolmax Socks to take care of our feet for those sweltering days in the saddle. If you're up on your French, you'll know the pois refers to the polka dots the sock design sports, which of course is a reference to the famous climbing jersey in the Tour. Most of us have come across Coolmax in the past, and not been disappointed. That's one reason Nalini has taken to making the super warm weather socks out of the material. Coolmax is a material whose main purpose in life is to give you the ultimate in moisture management, meaning that your dogs will be comfortable and dry no matter how hard you ride and how hot it is outside. Coolmax accomplishes this by using a four channel fiber system that immediately moves the moisture from perspiration away from the body so that it can quickly evaporate. In addition to that, the Pois Coolmax Socks have received a hydrophobic treatment to prevent the sock from absorbing any water, keeping the foot dry, which will be a huge help should you run into any unforeseen rain storms.
