A while back Lars reviewed Rockay’s Razer Trail crew socks and when the company approached RBR to review their Ignite Cycling socks, he encouraged me to try them. He had given the Razer a 5 out of 5 rating, which piqued my interest.
Yep, they are great socks! Since I’ve tested several kits that were made from recycled material, I wasn’t surprised by the softness and comfort of these socks. The added cushion at the heel and forefoot enhanced the wearing experience. Also, the band has just the right amount of elastic, tight enough to keep the socks up but loose enough to be comfortable.
The Ignite sock is lightweight, breathable, and seamless to avoid chafing or discomfort. Using a blend of recycled materials and an added anti-odor technology, you are helping the environment while keeping your feet happy. With the anti-odor technology, you don’t need to wash them as often. I wore my sample socks on two trainer rides and they passed the sniff test. Odor-free!
The understated logo at the back of the sock is reflective to provide added visibility during low light conditions. Studies have shown that the movement from pedaling helps drivers to notice you quicker than a static reflector.
The only reason I didn’t give the Ignite socks a perfect score is that they are a bit pricey at $21.95. But knowing Rockay’s commitment to the environment, giving a percentage of sales goes towards cleaning our oceans of harmful plastic waste, makes the price more palatable. In partnership with ReSea Project, the plastic is collected, sorted, and cleaned to be upcycled into usable material.
