Product Description: 
WITH 16 PATENTED DETAILS SECURE TO THE SUMMIT AND BACK. The Swiss cult brand X-SOCKS® sets standards with the improved Ski Touring sock. X-BIONIC® proves once again with its perfected technologies combined with an ingenious mix of materials and thus making every ski trip a wonderful experience – even for the feet. Step by step, sharp-headed crescents around pointed-heads approach the summit. Soon comes the reward: the departure. Ski mountaineering is a multifaceted challenge for the human body, but especially for the feet. Different and long-lasting stresses lead to warm, moist feet. The ideal breeding ground for smell, discomforting pressure points and even blisters. With these ingenious technologies, shady sides can be eliminated from a sunny ski tour.

Air-Conditioning Channel® for X-SOCKS®

We positioned the Air-Conditioning Channel® under the arch of the foot, the area that normally does not touch the ground. It begins there and then moves along the foot up to the cuff. Covering only 30 % of the skin’s surface, it is constructed using a fine-knit mesh, so with every step, moist air is pumped out of the shoe and fresh air is drawn back in. An optimal air circulation system for the foot is now a reality: fresh air can even be circulated within a snug-fitting shoe.

The Full Story

AirFlow Ankle Pads

To protect the exposed ankle, X-SOCKS® developed high-performance paddings. The crescent-moon-shaped alignment of the pads offers the best possible protection without affecting the ventilation ability of the AirCondtioning Channel®.

The Full Story

Aktiv-Bund® for X-SOCKS®

The Aktiv-Bund® adapts to any leg size without slipping or constricting. That guarantees for a perfect fit and wearing comfort.

The Full Story

Calf Protector

 

We have developed a sophisticated cushion system which perfectly protects and allows air to circulate even within the shoe. The rod-type structure of the padding allows air to move, so in the case of an impact, the pressure is not transferred to the skin, but escapes to the sides. This way the shock is not only buffered in one direction, but three ways and in three directions.

The Full Story

Expansion Ribs®

Expansion Ribs® knitted fabric fold apart based on the accordion principle, insuring that cold doesn’t cool down the elbows. Event when sharply bent during activity, the insulating effect is maintained through warm air that is already stored in the interior. The flexibility of this technology and elasticity of the yarn allow for the freedom of movement.

The Full Story

Heel Protector

The heel area is particularly prone to blisters: the Heel Protector absorbs friction and thus effectively decreases the risk of blistering.

The Full Story

ISO-Blocker

The ISO-Blocker prevents from cold draughts and reduces the incidence of pressure points. Plus it ventilates and dries the areas between them.

The Full Story

Instep Protector

Buckles and laces can become a problem in sports that are reliant on leg-power. Pressure points and chafing aren’t unusual.The Instep Protector minimizes the problem. A soft cushion spreads out the point pressure and provides for a pleasant feeling in the shoe.

The Full Story

Lambertz-Nicholson Achilles Tendon Protector

The special Lambertz-Nicholson Achilles Tendon Protector prevents strain on the sensitive Achilles tendon because it is protected by a surrounding cushion. This shockabsorbing cushion serves as a buffer between foot and shoe and thus prevents pressure and friction.

The Full Story

Shin Protector

Acts as a shock absorber and reduces the incidence of pressure points and the risk of sustaining scrapes and bruises.

The Full Story

Side Protector

Special side impact protectors regulate and support the function of the Air-Conditioning Channel® in the respective application.

The Full Story

Toe Protector

Who wants to be top needs, to take care of his toes. The asymmetric Toe Protector absorbs pressure and perfectly hugs the contour of the asymmetric toe area.

The Full Story

ToeTip Protector

Everyone knows the unpleasant feeling when a toe constantly bumps up against the shoe. After a while you have a painful sore spot. The chances of this problem occurring while doing sports is quite high because the continuous movement can cause the foot to slide forward in the shoe. To buffer the foot from this pressure the ToeTip Protector is made of a Robur that cushions and protects the toes and the especially sensitive tips of the toes.

The Full Story

Traverse AirFlow Channel System

The three-channel cross-ventilation system helps conduct warmth and moisture into the Air-Conditioning Channel®.

The Full Story

X­-Cross® Bandage

Our feet depend on the fine-tuned interaction of tendons, ligaments, muscles and joints. One careless step can be enough to destroy this experienced team. Therefore the ankles require extra protection without inhibiting the foot’s freedom. This is why we invented the X-Cross® Bandage. It is a cross ankle bandage knitted from an elastic material, which stabilises the ankle and optimally supports the foot’s function without limiting the freedom of movement.
