Long Thermal Socks for Motorcycle

Winter thermal socks are specifically designed for use with motorcycle for extra comfort and maximum cushioning support and to keep your feet warm for long distance riding in order to avoid hypothermia.  

Hypothermia: A condition of insufficient heat in the human body, which can be fatal

Hypothermia occurs when your core body temperature drops significantly, but temperatures don't need to be below freezing to induce hypothermia. Wind chill gets worse as wind speeds increase, and the longer you are sitting in a fixed open  position and traveling at a touring speed, the worse it gets.

One early sign of potential hypothermia occurs when you start feeling cold and you can't decide if you should pull over or not. Long before this point occurs, you should have pulled into that nice warm cafe and had some hot drinks or soup.

Uncontrolled shivering and chattering teeth are signs of real danger. You may start to feel dizzy, or even drunk, as your muscles begin to stiffen. Continued exposure may cause the shivering to slow down or even stop, but by then you're in serious trouble.  You could be the best rider in the world, but when you are not physically well you will not be able to fight cold wind.f

A good thermal layer of Neck warmer, complete overall thermal wear from top to bottom highly recommended. The key to safe cold weather riding is proper preparation and a smart rider will beat all these elements by correct equipment and proper apparel.  However, the unprepared rider invites not only discomfort also serious physical trouble.  Donít forget! When you are cold on a bike, you are really cold.  Prevention is better than cure.
