Cycling socks for all-day comfort

Comfort becomes paramount the longer a ride goes on for. These Brevet Socks have been developed with long-distance riding in mind. Tested during the 2015 Transcontinental, a 4,000km journey across Europe, they are made of an innovative blend of merino wool and PrimaLoft®. Medium-weight in thickness for warmth and comfort, the merino wool offers moisture-wicking, breathability and anti-bacterial qualities, while PrimaLoft® guarantees a soft, smooth feel and dries quickly. A handy benefit for tourers is that the fabric is quick-drying, so you can wash and dry the socks overnight, while Rapha has also added a highly reflective yarn stripe to keep you visible. For added comfort and to stop blisters, there is a soft terry-cloth section under the ball of the foot. These versatile, durable socks won’t let your feet down.

Sizing Guide

Sizes range between Small to Extra Large. Above is a guide for UK, US, EU and Japanese measurements.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Love the reflective band, sole burns when too hot. Great socks up to around 27°C. I really like the reflective band and the hi-viz band. You can really see when you ride through tunnels in the mountains and it does stand out and catch attention as it's moving. Only downside is the reinforced sole feels really hot and uncomfortable when above 27°C. Below that you forget you're wearing them, which is perfect. Above that you remember you're wearing them, which isn't so good. I'll buy more, but won't wear them on really warm days. Pro Team socks with a reflective band would be perfect for warmer rides. Size is spot on with other raphia socks.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Hmm Socks have traditionally been the weak spot in the otherwise superb Rapha line up. I've found that the flat fabrics are unflattering and the often odd colors are off-putting for riders of a certain age. Rapha surely realizes that their particular style of understated luxury appeals to a more discerning ridership. While there are many excellent choices for jerseys, shorts, and city wear, the socks are completely resistible. The brevet socks looked to be the exception. I liked the stripes and the hint of a ridged fabric. Unfortunately they didn't offer white, and the light blue while in some photos it looks like it matches the brevet jersey looks more like you washed your white socks with dark blue towels. Ugh. While it's not worth the effort to return them, I am profoundly underwhelmed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super socks I've had a number of pairs of different socks from Rapha, size 7-8 in shoes and take a medium which is a perfect fit. These I have to say are the best, they look great in all the colour ways I have, blue, black and cream and are extremely comfortable, they wash very well, and the reflective strips are excellent in low light.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from perfect ride in them when its cool and wear them with dress shoes to work almost everyday. love the cursive rapha logo, the primaloft / wool blend material and most important to me, the extra cushioning found just under the balls of my feet.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Love Rapha but.... The socks are great but wish they had come in black/pink for women (small)... Why navy?? Also I really wish the nicks (for women) would come with bright pink stripe or "Rapha" written down the side as it is for the men's...

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice short comfortable socks Done a couple of 50 miles rides in these socks and they are comfortable with a nice style. Not been out in low light so cannot comment how the reflective stripe works but it did catch light at home.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good fit and length Solid sock for cycling. On the thin side which is something that I really like. Also a good length if you are looking for a sock on the shorter side. Really good quality as well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Unique product this is a unique product (I have not seen analogues of merino, with a brevet from other manufacturers) I hope Rapha will produce light merino socks with brevet
