Capo Low Rider Tactel Socks - 2009 BCS
The words 'Low Rider' conjure up a wide variety of thoughts. In the case of the Capo Low Rider Tactel Socks, it makes us think of barely-there, always-dry cycling socks. Weird, we know, but the Low Rider Tactel socks are essential for the minimalist that doesn't want their legs covered in loud designs and large branding.
The Low Rider Tactel Socks are constructed of patented Tactel yarn. Tactel dries eight times faster than cotton, is three times stronger than natural fibers, and is 20 percent lighter than most other fibers. The Standard Tactel socks also come with a reinforced heel and toe, and an elastic arch band. These socks also feature light compression from toe to ankle, and have a 4cm cuff.
The Capo Low Rider Tactel Socks are available in sizes Small through X-Large, and colors Black and White. These socks are made in Italy.

My Castelli's and PI are better, these do the job but if you can get another sock cheaper I would go with it. They do fit well to what they claim.
Great low profile sock
June 23, 2009
Nice low profile, just enough to pop a bit above your shoe. Quite thin, so if you rely on your sock for comfort/vibration damping (say with a really thin or sub-par insole... cough Sidi) you may feel it in your feet. As a size 9, I am at the low end of the Large size, so it is just a little big, but I would assume the Medium would be too tight.
