Designed for training and racing in hot and humid conditions, Rapha’s Lightweight Socks have an open mesh construction for the very highest levels of breathability. The socks use a yarn created to feel very soft against the skin and which is also extremely high wicking, improving moisture management further. The footbed also has a soft finish for comfort, while handlocked seams and flatlock stitching throughout ensure the socks won’t chafe, no matter how hard or hot the ride.

Rapha Bidon - Large
Rated 5 out of 5 by tldy from Great socks These socks are light as promised and really breathe on a hot day. Like all Rapha socks, they are excellent cycling socks. Runs true to size.

Rated 5 out of 5 by rwnelson146 from Nice breathable sock I have worn these twice now in hot, humid conditions in North Carolina. Feet have stayed nice and cool. I like the extra padding in the forefoot as well. The short version is just the right height for me. Best of all, the sock doesn't have all kind of stripes and logos plastered all over. Just plain and stylish.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Brucey from Very Lightweight Socks Bought for summer rides in Australia the socks are designed to let air flow through the mesh on top of the foot. They seem to work well in that regard. They are however very thin and offer no cushioning like a normal sock might.

Rated 5 out of 5 by bunneboy from Very light great for hot days Light weight is an understatement, these things are see through, but when its 40dc and climbing your going to be happy they are on your feet. Look great feel great.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Biker Girl from Lightweight Short socks These socks have lived up to the description. lightweight, comfortable, nice colour, sizing is right. I think I could probably wear these as a running sock as well.

Rated 3 out of 5 by perry08 from Too light and flimsy I've had these socks for a few months, and while they are indeed light, they are not very sturdy, coming apart at the toes. Will not purchase another pair.

What is the length?
Hi, in large these socks are 12cm from gore to top of cuff. The gore is the small triangle located at the heel. The length increases or decreases by 1cm as you go up or down a size.
