BENEFITS & FEATURES
The little black dress of your sports wardrobe?
Whether you enjoy a casual gym class, do a morning run or have your own training regime, SKINS compression garments, like your runners, are an essential part of your wardrobe.
Scientifically proven to make the body perform and recover better, your little black SKINS mean you can work out longer and have less muscle pain the next day.
How? We ensure you get correct amount of pressure in all the right places to deliver more oxygen to your muscles whilst our unique fabrics reduce the risk of injury by supporting key muscle groups and allowing unrestricted movement.
Forget the vagueness of the usual S, M, L fit. From day dot we refused to accept poor fitting garments, so, to provide the best fit in sports compression, we pioneered a sizing system that uses a unique BMI algorithm which takes into account your height and weight (God love those sports scientists!)
The ultimate fit
Leading the way in compression sizing, we have now developed another compression first our SKINS 400 Series.
A range tailored for the ultimate fit, using a unique sizing system that not only takes into account height and weight as before, but now also your body shape.
We know that women are all shapes and sizes (our full 3D body scan of hundreds of active women confirmed this!) but our research allowed us to identify 2 body shapes key to giving every woman the perfect fit. Creating what is arguably the best fitting female compression garment in the market:
A shaped bodies have a small waist in relation to the hip and thigh.
Whatever your game, wed like to think we can help you do it better by making you go smarter, not harder.
3D body scan data and 400 key fitting points have been used to create a more precise and comfortable fit to maximise compression benefits.
DYNAMIC GRADIENT COMPRESSION
SKINS most advanced compression technology increases muscle oxygenation, stabilises active muscles and reduces blood lactate build up, to enhance performance and speed up recovery time.
Biomechanically positioned panels and seams support and stabilise the muscles to reduce fatigue and risk of injury.
Permanent antimicrobial treatment discourages bacteria by ionically absorbing the odour causing substances normally associated with Lycra wear. These features are built into all our fabrics, so they can’t ever be washed out.
50+ UV PROTECTION
SKINS proven 50+ UV protection.
Memory MX Fabric has a superior high-stretch yarn that doesn’t change shape or sag, so you maintain consistent compression, session after session. A400 Long Tights have 70D Memory MX over the knee and Achilles tendon for unrestricted natural movement, and 210D Memory MX over the ITB and TFL muscle groups to help reduce the risk of injury.
SKINS compression fabric is made from a warp knitted mix of yarns that give you a carefully calculated level of stretch for controlled compression and durability.
Moisture wicking fabric draws sweat away from the body to the surface of the garment where it evaporates to keep you dry.
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.
