#PandaPower 1.0 Revival

Sockguy has decided to sell #PandaPower 1.0 through their regular sales channels!

Purchase away on their website here: #PandaPower 1.0 Online
.. And you can also ask your LBS to order as well!

A portion of the profits do go back to me, which is insanely awesome and you should tell Sockguy they're rad for doing this.

#PandaPower 2.0


#PandaPower 2.0

Version TWO of the collaboration between Amanda Nauman and Sockguy!

We have upgraded to the SGX Material this year! SockGuy's SGX™ socks are designed with the elite athlete in mind and features our exclusive Elite Performance Formula, a blend of polypropylene, nylon and spandex. SGX provides a compression fit, performance ribbing, enhanced ventilation and a reduced friction profile.

If you're not feelin' the SGX Material because you're still in love with the regular Acrylic from Version ONE, you're in luck! SockGuy will be selling #PandaPower 1.0 exclusively through their store as soon as it's in stock. More details on that soon..

This collection will help fund the remainder of Amanda's racing season through August 2017. There are a limited number so hurry to get yours!

A re-order will be put in place if there is high demand.
Similar listing with material and sizing description: Sockguy 6" Cuff

In person =

  • 1 for $15 
  • Special: Buy 2 for $25 if you're looking for extra panda watts

  • 1 for $18 [$3 shipping]
  • 2 for $35 [$3 shipping]
  • 3 for $50 [$2 shipping]
  • 5 for $75 [free shipping over $75]
Shipping rates should look like this. If anything comes up differently, please let me know!

If you're wondering, "Why so expensive?!" It's because you're not just paying for socks. You're also paying for Panda support to travel for the remainder of the 2016-17 season. It's whole-heartedly appreciated. I wanted to find a way for people to show their support by sending me money but also getting something (like awesome socks that everyone can wear) in return as a thank-you and a way to flaunt your Panda support.

How to be PandaPower Supporter:

All sponsors behind cyclocross, gravel, and mountain bike racing teams are putting themselves out there with the hope of a return on their investment. ROI is a hard metric to measure. More often than not, blue-collar-racer investments are more of a donation to good racers’ dreams.

The two most noticeable ways to prove that racers are doing their jobs are through social media channels and proof of purchase. If you want to see the sport of cyclocross grow and believe that more money can be invested in its growth, you can help the cause. Support your favorite teams and riders. Boost them through social with likes, hearts, re-posts, re-tweets and tags. Buy from those brands and then tell everyone about it.

If you’re rolling your eyes at that request, then we’re losing. Be loud and proud of our racers and the brands behind them or else the sport stagnates and nothing will change. Plus, we all know the interwebs could use more positivity.

More money = more media = more exposure = more money and the cycle goes on…

If you race, ride, cheer, or invest in cycling and believe in this message, feel free to share and use this as a template.
