As anyone who has ever cleaned a foam pit will confirm, they can very quickly become extremely dirty and unhygienic places. The ageing foam cubes break down leaving behind a mess of dusty particles that can be inhaled by gymnasts raising respiratory concerns, or can be an irritant to gymnasts’ eyes.

These pit socks protect the foam from damage, meaning your foam lasts longer and your pit stays cleaner! We can provide bulk orders of socks in a wide range of colours and the lycra has a high flame retardancy and is therefore considered a low risk. The International measure of this is the NFPA 701 test, which our lycra covers pass.
We also offer a full foam pit refurbishment service.
