During its 30-year collaboration with outdoor technical sock brand Lorpen, The LYCRA Company has provided quality fibers and technology to help Lorpen create the ultimate high performing socks for hiking, trekking, running and skiing. Lorpen introduced COOLMAX® technology in its launch of three-layer socks with T3 Technology, and recently, in Lorpen’s own SLS (Selective Layering System) constructed technology.
Creating smart socks
These applications have enabled Lorpen to produce socks with a smart layer design, offering the wearer the best in adaptability, strength and ventilation when being active outdoors. Integrated into the socks’ most inner layer with direct skin contact, the COOLMAX® technology helps to wick sweat away from the skin. This helps feet to remain cool, dry and blister free, allowing outdoor enthusiasts and athletes to better focus on their performance.
Fiber choice is key
Long lasting fit and durability is part of Lorpen’s DNA. Careful selection of the most advanced natural and synthetic fibers is key to Lorpen and so is local production. Lorpen’s social and environmental vision, plus the company’s love of nature, makes their products some of the most innovative and sustainable options for outdoor lovers and athletes.
