A huge part of what we do at Point6 involves two of our favorite things - snow and the wilderness. This season, we’re excited to show our support for backcountry adventure by sponsoring the Winter Wildlands Alliance Backcountry Film Festival with our high performance merino wool ski and snowboard socks.
The Backcountry Film Festival makes its world premiere on November 1st in Boise, Idaho and will then tour to more than 100 showings around the world. The festival, now in its 9th year, raises more than $110,000 annually for local organizations working on advocacy, snow safety, outdoor education and SnowSchool programs, including Colorado Mountain Club and Friends of Berthoud Pass to name a few here locally.
The best film submissions are selected from world-renowned filmmakers and grassroots filmmakers alike who capture their diverse backcountry experiences. Skiers, snowboarders, snowshoers, mountaineers and all others who pursue human powered adventure in the backcountry will enjoy these films, all while supporting a great cause! Proceeds from ticket sales go directly to support local area backcountry organizations.
Point6 will make appearances at several of the events taking place in Colorado, including Golden, Boulder, Aspen, Salida, and more. Find out where you can catch the 100 location tour, and get psyched for winter while supporting your local area’s backcountry organizations.
Point6 is excited to participate in the 2nd Annual Pedal the Plains Bicycle Tour for the consecutive year.
Scheduled for Sept. 20 – 22, 2013, PTP is a three day ride averaging 50 to 80 miles per day. Seasoned cyclists can also partake in a challenging Century Ride, while families can enjoy a mellow loop ride for novices. Point will be there to show its support by providing its performance merino wool cycling socks for sponsors and volunteers, and will be there all weekend cheering on participants.
Whether logging miles on the road, cyclocross racing or tackling challenging singletrack in the backcountry, all Point6 cycling socks are engineered with minimal-to-no cushioning for a performance fit and maximum comfort during long rides. Merino is proven as an excellent performer for cyclists in any climate thanks to the natural temperature stabilizing properties of wool, and we hope our cycling socks will help enhance the experience for everyone at the event.
Proudly made in the USA, Point6 exclusively uses 100-percent compact spun merino yarns and the highest quality merino wool, combined with advanced knitting and sock construction techniques, for products of the utmost quality, comfort and durability.
Proceeds from Pedal The Plains benefit The Denver Post Community Foundation in support of Future Farmers of America and 4H. Additional funds raised will be returned directly to the Eastern Plains of Colorado. Details on the route and schedules are available online at http://www.pedaltheplains.com.
Point6 has received a lot of great media coverage lately, and people are raving about our merino wool socks!
Sunset Magazine, a premier lifestyle and travel magazine focused on the western states and one of our personal favorites, recently named Point6 socks the “best socks ever”, and gave us a nice shout out in their ‘Best of the West’ issue.
We love to hear people are excited about our products, and it feels great knowing there’s lots of happy feet out there. Visit our press page @ www.point6.com/blogs/media-blog and check out Point6 in Outside Magazine, Mountain, Wall Street Journal, Bicycling, and many more.
Happy Spring! To celebrate, Point6 is proud to debut a brand new collection of performance merino wool cycling socks geared for bike junkies of all flavors.
Whether logging miles on the road, cyclocross racing or tackling challenging singletrack in the backcountry, you'll be riding in comfort and style with our fresh new sock designs built just for you.
Our new cycling socks feature streamlined designs and sport-specific cushioning to enhance fit, comfort and performance, including the new Rider sock with our proprietary “buckle cushion.” This design features light cushioning strategically placed on the instep-area only to ease buckle pressure from stiff cycling shoes.
Merino wool is an excellent performer for cyclists in any region. Merino is naturally temperature and moisture regulating, so it keeps you cool when it’s warm and warm when it’s cold. Another advantage is the breathability of the fiber. Even the name Point6 signifies 98-point-6 degrees Fahrenheit, the body’s optimal temperature, and represents the moisture management and temperature regulating properties of merino wool.
We also took a close look at style trends within the cycling community and found that cyclists in different regions prefer different sock heights. As a result our designs range from the 'barely there' micro crew with the Stealth, all the way up to 7" cuffs as in the Flyer and Big Day designs.
All Point6 cycling socks are engineered with minimal-to-no cushioning for a performance fit and maximum comfort during long rides. Arch and achilles brace support cradles the foot without impairing circulation, while ventilation panels enhance breathability for long rides in the heat. Every detail is meticulously constructed to prevent hot spots, blisters and swamp foot.
