Louis Garneau is one of few labels with the capabilities to produce every piece of cycling gear we need, from head to toe. This enviable position allows Garneau to design a system of products that complement each other, like sunglasses for helmets, and socks for shoes. The Venti X-Lite Sock is one such example. A supremely lightweight and breathable sock in its own right, when the X-Lite Sock is combined with Garneau's X-Lite Shoe, the socks' upper and underfoot mesh vents perfectly line up with the ventilation patterns on the shoes, maximizing their air-cooling capabilities.

The Venti X-Lite Socks are constructed chiefly of CoolMax -- a superlative multi-channel fiber with a larger surface area than traditional polyester weaves, which spreads the moisture across the fibers to enhance moisture transport and evaporation speeds. The moisture evaporation rate is so quick, that on numerous occasions we've pulled CoolMax socks from the washing machine completely dry, and put them on immediately before going riding. In essence, this fabric is perfect for cycling socks. Fun fact: CoolMax is patented and owned by the same textile company that owns the names to Lycra, Cordura, and many other major fabrics we rely on.

The Louis Garneau Venti X-Lite Socks are available in sizes Small through Large and in four colors: Royal, White, Black, and Ginger -- one of which is certain to match your team kit. The cuff can be expected to hit just above your ankles.

  • Familiarity:I've put it through the wringer

I've been using this sock for a year and I have no complaints. breathes well. comfortable. looks good. seriously, what more do you want from a sock?

I'm a size 44 and the L/XL fits well.


Great Socks!

  • Familiarity:I've used it several times
  • Fit:True to size

These socks are very comfortable and good looking, too.

Ready for the trails!!!

Ready for the trails!!!

They are really great socks!

O.K...O.K. I have to admit...they look better on you!

Wish they had these in women's. But they fit well, anyway (just a little taller than we ladies might like...n.b.d.).

Do you think so? Like you mentioned, taking a picture of your feet is a very hard task. I'm a Garneau apparel fan. These are very nice socks.


Awesome Louis Garneau Socks!!!

  • Gender:Male
  • Familiarity:I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit:True to size

I'm a fan of the LG apparel and these socks keep me in that direction. Very cool, comfortable, and great looking.

Get'em before they & summer is gone!

Total comfort for the long, hot miles ahead!

*Ladies, for reference, I wear a women's U.S. 7.5 shoe, these are the men's 'small' and they fit perfectly!

Get'em before they & summer is gone!

Comfort meets style

Ever tried to take a pic of your own foot? Probably not!

Good Greif, I need a life!

Anyway, these are great and stylish, too. Form fit, and mildly compressive.

The Definitive Definition of COOL!

I absolutely love Giordana; I've discovered Gore's XENON line, which I also love; but these take the cake by far for breeziness, and a great cuff that supports, and makes these socks stay in place. Very well made. Very sharp, too (nothing wrong with that!). Will be buying more.

But I do have to recommend the Xenon socks, too; very different approach to bike socks.

Great Sock fits Ladies' Too...

  • Gender:Female
  • Familiarity:I've put it through the wringer

Got the S/M and it fit just fine, not loose/baggy, or too high. Normally wear a 7 1/2 U.S., probably most ladies can pull this sock-off! Got the black version, sharp (to match the Corsa jersey (that's another story), and the blk./wht. neo shorts).

Seems very well made, and as described, and previously reviewed, very breezy.



x lite socks

    paying too much is bad but, PAYING TOO LITTLE IS EVEN WORSE! dont leave your dogs in the dog house, socks are the real deal, plus it will give your mind a metal edge let alone your feet


    Nice Mid Height Sock

      Really cool and nice mid length sock. You will not get hot in these.


      Louis Garneau socks

        Very nice and comfortable socks. They can be made a lot longer if you like to cut the cuff and extend the socks to double the height! They look cool modified, or as they are...
