    I have worn the socks for probably 10 yrs. Put the socks on when you put on your pants and remove the same. The socks feel just like any other sock and have lasted for years (I think I am on my 2nd set - so about 5 yrs or so). Yes the elastic is a bit stretched out but for wearing them for 1 hour per day, they are a dream. Also, while you are thinking about getting socks for Xmas - also think about Kevlar gloves as well. There are very few people who don't make their living using hands or feet and the extra protection is well worth the small price.

    This is an unpaid or compensated opinion. I have had great luck with Security products and hope you do as well. And if Pat wants to kick a little something towards my stocking, it would not be rejected.

      Last year NBRA gave ever driver that joined a free pair of socks. I bet they still have a few left, so if you wanted to race NBRA sometimes next year this would be a good time to sign up.

    Are Kevlar or Kevlar lined gloves for hand protection also required?

      Not currently. Also.... cut resistant does not mean Kevlar. Cut resistant Gloves and socks usually are not Kevlar, but high performance polyethylene (HPPE) .

        How did APBA define "cut resistant footwear" in the actual mandate? Is it socks AND shoes, or socks OR shoes? Any actual specification as to what "cut resistant" means?

          You can use either the cut resistant socks or boots. Or if you like both! Most already wear the socks now. This is per Kyle Bahl who is on the Safety Committee and posted it on the Seattle Outboard Association website

        Checking the updated rules on the APBA website cut resistant socks are the minimum requirement to meet the rule. There is no mention of gloves. Of course shoes provide excellent protection as well.

          What constitutes cut resistant? Hockey socks are cut resistant, but usually are not cut resistant in the foot.

          Bob....consult your local SORC Commissioner Kyle Bahl who is on the Safety Committee. Gloves were discussed but did not get incorporated into the rule.

        Its pretty simple.... buy either the boots or the socks or both from Security or Lifeline if they make, There is no mention of gloves because they did not make that a rule.

          still no one has answered the question as to when the rule was mandated [ put into effect ], what was the definition at that time of " cut resistant "? must we pay for the security / lifeline product or what other options do we have?


          • #10
            This rule was passed in November 2018, it became effective 30 days after it was published. Cut resistant is manufactured defined and labeled as such. There is no rule on where you need to purchase the socks and/or shoes-boots

              thanks Howie for the definition. I wasn't questioning the rule or when, .that is what it is. just looking for direction as to what would meet the rule. your reply works for me.
