Bridgedale, socks scientifically proven to outperform the other brands thanks to their unique combination of both natural and synthetic fibres. More comfortable, harder wearing, better at wicking, and featuring a 3-year guarantee. This is enduring comfort... and here's a little on how it's achieved...

 

Woolfusion WoolFusion® is Bridgedale's unique technology setting them apart from other sock brands. Bridgedale's WoolFusion® technology combines the highest quality natural yarns; Merino wool or Tough wool, and fuses them together with high-performance microfibres; Coolmax® or Isolfil®. This unique technology results in socks that perform to the highest level. WoolFusion® socks provide supreme, lasting comfort: they are warm when they need to be and wick when there is excess moisture. Overall they are extremely comfortable and hard wearing - this is enduring comfort.
T2

T2 Anti Compression Loop

New technology, exclusive to the select Bridgedale models such as the X-Hale TrailBlaze. This is a loop within a loop which offers an additional level of impact protection; the inner loop has even more resilience than the outer loop for cushioning when you need it. T2 pad technology has been knit into the pressure points; ball of the foot, lace up area and achilles, offering enduring comfort all day long.

 

Merino Wool

 

 

Merino Wool

The finest wool available - particularly as much of the Merino Wool used by Bridgedale is sourced from New Zealand! Merino is a light, soft wool which enables Bridgedale to knit socks with excellent handle, guaranteeing no itch. In addition, Merino provides the excellent thermal and moisture control properties of other wools.

Enduro Wool

 

 

Enduro Wool

Enduro Wool (New Wool) is the first spin of wool which guarantees softness and quality. Many other wool yarns are spun from recycled wool creating an uncomfortable itch. Enduro Wool offers excellent insulation and is highly breathable. Bridgedale's winter sport socks contain a combination of New Wool and finer Merino Wool.

CoolMax

 

CoolMax

This delivers the perfect balance of wicking, drying and breathability. The fibre's unique 4-channel construction pulls moisture from the skin and transports it through the fabric to the outer surface where it can evaporate, or be absorbed by another fibre.

Lycra

Lycra

Lycra's remarkable stretch and recovery properties enhance sock fit.

Endurofil

 

Endurofil

Endurofil™ is a thermal yarn and is combined with Tough wool and Merino wool for superb wicking and durability. Endurofil™ is a polypropylene fibre, which also offers high abrasion and wash resistance. Approximately 25% warmer than Coolmax, but 25% less efficient at wicking.

Nylon

 

Nylon

Wool is an excellent fibre for warmth (even when wet), comfort, and for transporting moisture. Its one ‘weak point’ is that it is not a strong fibre. Hence Bridgedale wrap every strand of wool with a thin strand of nylon, creating a new fibre. This thin strand of nylon does not affect comfort, but creates an extremely hardwearing fibre that will last for years on the trail. They are the only sock manufacturer in the world to have this technology on site.

 

Some of the construction features common to Bridgedale socks include:

  3. Ankle and Arch Support

  4. Ventilation Zone
    Releases water and cools foot

  5. ShockZones®
    High impact padded protection

  6. Reinforced Heel and Toe
    Durability for hard worked areas

  7. Y-Heel

  8. Flat Toe Seam

MMS Construction, Bridgedale's unique Moisture Management System, is engineered to rapidly move moisture away from the skin.

 

MMS technology places moisture conducting yarns against the skin, which transfer perspiration to the outer absorbing yarns. Moisture is kept away from the skin enabling feet to stay dry, blister free and comfortable.
