The Victory Chimp Hairo® socks landed at the door recently and it was all hairy! The irony of shaving your legs to put on the ace Hairo® socks shouldn’t be lost on us cyclists. They wonderfully cheeky socks sat on my desk and cried to be seen on the bike, I relented and took them off on a cycle path and boy, did they enjoy themselves. There are two awesome things a cyclist can own at small expense to give themselves some sartorial pleasure; caps and socks. Victory Chimp, along with some other fine companies are keeping you in the sock game and these Hairo® socks – along with the also popular Hill Repeats sock – are, well, just ace.

If you’re not familiar with Victory Chimp, you should be… Mostly creates cycling art and apparel, dreamed up on the roadside and worked out in the studio. High-quality, locally-printed and hand-signed in limited numbers kinda art. It’s the alter-ego of, Ryan O’Reilly, a Northern Irish bike-riding designer and illustrator. When not busy at his desk, he is either scribbling down ideas or riding around the country on his bike.
