What is SKINS?

SKINS provide DNAmic Gradient Compression across the major muscle groups, with the highest compression applied at the calf and gradually decreasing towards the heart. The DNAmic Compression Technology is applied in a targeted dynamic manner, to maintain the integrity of the compression during exercise.

  • Increases muscular strength and power:

But how exactly does it do this?

  • Increases muscle oxygenation.
  • Increases blood flow velocity.
  • Increases venous return.
  • Removes lactic acid faster.
  • Reduces exercise induced muscle damage (EIMD).
  • Improves body temperature control.



In conclusion, SKINS compression gear helps you efficiently train and decreases recovery time.

SKINS compression gear is recommended for any power or endurance athletes to improve performance.
