Falke has a proud 124-year history of producing world leading knitted garments. In 2019 they have partnered with FNB Wines2Whales to introduce their latest mountain bike specific socks to riders at the country’s most gees-filled stage race. In celebration of their sponsorship of the three, three-day, stage races Falke are also launching a competition to win an entry to one of the races.

Founded in Germany in 1895 Falke has been producing socks in South Africa since the early 1980s. Well before socks were the expression of one’s personality on the bike that they are today. Their socks are purpose-designed and refined for ultimate confidence in the demanding Southern African climate.

Falke’s mountain biking specific socks are designed to ensure comfort, while not sacrificing durability. Boasting a seamless toe, to prevent blisters, deep heel pockets to keep your sock in place and mesh panels to ensure proper ventilation, they have been designed to ensure that whilst you are riding, your feet are supported.

Riders who have not yet entered one of the FNB Wines2Whales events will be excited to hear that Falke are offering the chance to win a team entry, and a Falke Gift Pack, for you and your riding partner. To enter the competition riders will need to purchase a pair of Falke socks at selected Cycle Lab Stores before the 31st July 2019 and you will be entered into the draw. Visit for the full competition details and for the full list of the participating Cycle Lab Stores.
