These socks form part of a special limited collection, made in honour of US champion and Olympic medallist, Nelson Vails, nicknamed The Cheetah.

Watch Nelson Vails racing the ‘84 Los Angeles Olympics and you’ll soon see why. Vails’ predatory power – bred in the concrete jungle of New York as a bike messenger, where he never failed to deliver – saw him scoop silver, resplendent in red, white and blue. This collection recalls Vails’ riding and racing roots, featuring the green and yellow of his first team.

These socks are soft, comfortable and wick efficiently. With a breathable mesh upper featuring an all-over thunderbolt graphic, they’re most at home during high-intensity riding or racing. Added elastane aids comfort and fit, and a snug and supportive cuff keeps your socks securely in place.
