DISCOVER THE BENEFITS OF COMPRESSION
Often, compression is thought to be any tight-fitting sports gear. But decades of research has found that true sports compression has a direct and significant impact on training and performance, and an even greater impact on recovery.
The secret? Well, compression needs to be firm and durable enough to hold muscles in place during activity. This helps prevent unwanted muscle movement and micro-tears that can cause soreness and fatigue.
But the real MVP is graduated compression. This is where the compression garment is firmer at the extremities, encouraging blood circulation towards the heart and speeding up your recovery. Graduated compression also boosts the flow of oxygen in the body, powering you to go further and faster.
Compression Level: Mild
Our Form compression capsule features mild graduated compression, perfect for training.
Crafted from a double knit ultra-fine yarn, the high tech fabric has a luxe matte finish, soft touch for all day wear, and will leave you feeling sculpted and smooth, ready for your next workout.
Compression Level: Moderate
CORE, AERO & MOTION.
This is where it all started. Our pioneering Core, and more recently Aero and Motion capsules feature moderate graduated compression, made for running or training.
Engineered in a circular knit construction from the highest quality yarns, the innovative fabric is extremely powerful, lightweight and flexible. It’s moisture wicking properties outlast the competition to keep you cool and dry from one session to the next.
Compression Level: Firm
FORCE & LIGHT SPEED.
Our market-leading Light Speed and Force capsules feature MCS (Muscle Containment Stamping) technology, which traces key muscle groups, adding that extra layer of support to our Core collection.
Developed with a detailed understanding of the impact running and high intensity training has on the legs, the firm support will further reduce muscle movement, damage and fatigue preparing you for your best workout yet.
Compression Level: Extra Firm
Recovery is training too, which is why we’ve created our extra firm range of compression. Featuring an over-foot stirrup and graduated stamping, the recovery collection boosts blood flow all the way from the ball of the foot, speeding up relief for the entire lower body.
