SKINS know recovery is an important part of your fitness routine. A quick recovery means you feel great, can work out more often and get better results.
Research has taught that your compression needs whilst active are different to when your muscles are in a relaxed state of recovery. With this in mind, SKINS created the RY400 range.
Forget massages, long baths and ice packs. To improve recovery time, simply pull on your RY400 garments after activity. They're scientifically proven to make the body recover better - reducing tenderness and delayed onset muscle soreness by delivering more oxygen to your resting muscles.
SKINS recommend you wear your RY400 long tights for at least 3 hours to get the best results. The 400 fit guarantees maximum comfort, so you can even wear them while you sleep to speed up your body's natural recovery process.
Gradient Compression has been engineered to provide the correct level of surface pressure to enhance circulation and increase oxygen delivery - improving your recovery after sport. So comfy you can even wear them to bed after an intense workout - to help you wake up with fresh legs the next day.
Strategically placed Memory MX
Memory MX fabric contains a unique high stretch elastomeric yarn - which returns to its original shape no matter how much stress you put it under. So you get the same level of muscle support and controlled compression from your SKINS twelve months down the track as you did the day you first put them on.
Special Seam Tracking - for optimum comfort in resting phase
Women's clothing - ideally suited to H-Shapes
SKINUVblock - 50+ UV protection in all non-mesh areas
Aging might not stop you training, but sunburn and irritation will. One way or another - you have to cover up.
SKINS fabrics have a UV protection of 50+, which means you can get out and train harder without worrying about sun related risks.
SKINdry - moisture management and transport
Sweat is your body's way of regulating temperature. Wicking is inherent in all SKINS fabrics. Moisture is drawn away from your skin, so you stay dry and comfortable. This process allows the body to regulate its temperature naturally. Even during an intense workout, your muscles can function at their optimal temperature.
SKINtemp - Optimizing body temperature
SKINtemp technology allows athletes to remain active without having an increased core temperature.
Note: For maximum performance and recovery benefits, it is imperative you are fitted with the correct SKINS size. For information on how to select the correct size for you take a look at the sizechart in pictures.
76% polyamide, 24% elastane
In 1996, an Australian skier had a bold ambition – to feel ten years younger so he could ski all day, party all night and be ready the next morning do it all again.
His starting point was the knowledge that improved blood circulation would supply more oxygen to his muscles, helping them work harder for longer and recover faster. So he consulted with NASA and other experts to confirm he was on to something. Turns out he was.
Soon word got out that there were these things called SKINS that improved your power, speed, stamina and recovery. Pro athletes were the first to start wearing them. Before long, amateur athletes joined the party.
