Born out of mateship, a love of alpine sports and a wealth of experience achieved over a decade of professional ski bootfitting, Le Bent originally launched to market with the first technical ski sock that successfully combined “unrivalled comfort, performance and fit. We now craft intelligently designed technical first on skin layers (socks, base layers and accessories) blurring the lines between luxurious comfort, performance and style. Le Bent’s commitment to performance, unrivaled comfort and sustainability are inspired by nature, visible across all of its merino-based lines that are built for the rider's lifestyle, whether that be snow, trail run, mountain bike or anything in between.
“Our ambition is to inspire good times and adventure in the products we make and lifestyles we lead. We create products we use ourselves and these products enable our global tribe to lose themselves in their outdoor experiences.”
- The Founders
We saw more feet than we care to remember over 10 years as technical boot fitters in an award winning boot lab in Val’d’Isere France. An additional 15 years of pro skiing experience and we’ve developed a deep understanding of the synergy between foot, sock and boot, witnessing and experiencing first hand how the wrong gear ruins a day on the hill.
The outdoors our muse, why not use two of nature’s finest and renewable resources - merino and bamboo. This innovative bespoke blend was crafted by an expert team over many years including Australia’s peak scientific body (the CSIRO). The result? All the benefits of merino without the itch, for all climates.
