New Gore socks combine ePTFE fibers with Merino wool

Published May 22, 2017

LONGMONT, Colo. (BRAIN) — Gore Cycle Wear's new GORE Fiber Socks are made of a material that combes ePTFE (expanded polytetrafluoroethylene) fiber with Merino wool and other fibers. The company said the technology directs moisture away from the skin. The ePTFE fibers also add durability, the company said.

The socks also feature a metatarsal gripper belt for snug and unmoving fit, compression support and a supportive arch, flat seams and protective cushioning for impact at the heel and toe, and a low bulk design that creates less opportunity for chafing and bunching. 

"Due to the inherent stability of PTFE, its resistance to chemical, thermal, UV attack and its good abrasion resistance/low friction attributes, both matrix-spun and paste-extruded PTFE fibers are valuable in a wide range of applications, including filtration (woven fabrics, scrim, sewing threads), marine awnings/sewing threads, bearings, gaskets," the company said. 

The unisex socks come in short, mid and long crew lengths. MSRP: Mid: $25.99.
