We recently reviewed the dhb ASV roubaix bib shorts and were hugely impressed. These are the matching socks that can be worn to complete the outfit and when paired with the rest of the ASV range they look resplendent.

In our recent winter clothing guide we suggested these socks and have been wearing them since then. They have continued to impress us and when paired with neoprene overshoes our feet have remained warm and snug on the coldest days.

Being the same standard as that worn by the Wiggle Honda Pro Team, these socks are very comfortable, with well thought out ergonomics, that include flat toe seams and a reinforced heel for added comfort.

We had the pleasure of wearing these socks on a couple of biblically wet rides in South Wales during a severe weather warning. In such conditions our feet became wet (despited wearing overshoes), but remained warm thanks to the natural qualities of Merino wool, which retains a high level of heat even when wet.

You can easily pay twice the price to get socks of the same standard from other brands, with this pair further cementing dhb's reputation for quality and value.
