Nomex clothing is absolutely crucial if you compete in auto racing. Nomex fabric, which both absorbs and wicks moisture away from the body and provides invaluable protection against heat and fire, provides the racer with everything that he or she could want in a fabric. It is lightweight and comfortable, yet durable enough to withstand extreme temperatures. Put simply, Nomex clothing can prevent serious injury or death in the event of an accident.
However, it should be pointed out that Nomex can’t provide any benefits if it isn’t being worn this is why we offer K1 Nomex fire socks. To ensure that you are properly prepared in the event of a collision or off-track excursion that results in fire, you must be covered from head to toe. This includes wearing Nomex balaclavas, gloves, shoes, underwear, and of course, an SFI-certified suit. It may seem trivial, but Nomex fire socks can save the vulnerable and sensitive skin and tissue around your ankles from severe damage should a fire break out in your car. Isn’t that worth $30?
