Major Taylor Socks

Intro

Our Major Taylor cycling socks are a clear cut above the competition. Made from Meryl™ Skinlife (in black) or Coolmax Elastra (in red or navy) they are super-soft, enveloping your feet in breathable comfort. With a 1.5cm width reflective yarn encircling the sock cuff they provide an additional level of security for those late evening summer rides, audax events and commutes.

Why Major Taylor?

Major Taylor became the first ever African-American World Champion Cyclist, way back in 1899, when he won the Sprint at the World Track Championships in Montreal, Quebec. Taylor was only the second black world champion in any sport, and he went on to set numerous world records in distances from the quarter mile to the two mile Sprint. It's not hard to imagine the headwinds and prejudices he battled in his career, but in 1989 he was inducted into the United States Bicycling Hall of Fame. Our socks are a hidden gem in our range, much like Major Taylor remains a relatively unknown, hidden gem of cycling history.
