Gerbing Heated Socks for Motorcycle Riders
The company has recently added a new product to their lineup, namely Heated Socks that are meant to provide comfort for riders during cold days. “Motorcycle riders, if you get the kind of cold feet that don't involve a walk down the aisle, then Gerbings has the solution,” Gerbing announced.
The new items are made from a perspiration-wicking 4-way stretch material, these socks are the ultimate in cold weather comfort for your feet.
“First, they're extra tall, so they ride up over your calf. No matter how tall or short your motorcycle boots are, these socks work,” the company says. “Second, the socks are cut specifically for left and right feet, so they fit you even more snugly to deliver extra heat, particularly to your toes.”
According to Gerbings, all the heat comes from the patented Microwire heating system, which comprises a set of wires that are extremely thin, so that the rider does not feel them. Gerbing has developed the Microwire in response to a Department of Defense contract for heated clothing for Special Ops Forces.
“And with heat delivered both above and below your feet, you'll be riding wrapped in soothing comfort,” stated the press release. The new Gerbings Heated Motorcycle Socks have an MSRP of $89.95 and will be available around mid-December 2010.
The company also offers Hybrid Heated Insoles, designed to work straight off your bike's battery, or you can power them off one of our rechargeable lithium battery packs (optional). They retail for $59.95.
