SKINS cycle essentials compression arm sleeves are based on 400 fit and feature dynamic gradient compression to get more oxygen to your active muscles. Increased circulation helps prevent lactic acid build-up while muscle focus helps limit injury risk so you'll be ready to ride first thing in the morning.The arm sleeves are designed to fit under SKINS jerseys with elastic grippers to prevent slipping. Wear them for warm up practice or to extend the length of short sleeved tops mid-season then slip the sleeves into your pocket for easy storage. SKINS Engineered Gradient Compression Increases oxygen delivery to active muscles while in motion and reduces lactic-acid build-up for more power and less recovery time.
- SKINmuscle+ provides muscle support and stability during activity.
- Warp Knit fabric provides for optimum compression control and durability.
- SKINfit based on BMI anthropometrical algorithm ensures the ultimate fit.
- SKINdry ensures enhanced moisture management wicking.
- SKINtemp provides enhanced body temperature optimisation.
- SKINUVblock provides proven 50+ UV protection in all non-mesh areas.
- 4 needle flat lock stitching provides both durability and comfort.
- Reflective heat seals.
- Jacquard elastic with silicon gripper.
- PU bonded finish at top to hold in place.
The Skins A200 range is the evolution of the pioneering Original collection. Built on Skins scientifically proven engineered gradient compression, feature muscle wrapping support for stronger support that provides heightened performance. This garment is designed for those that are passionate about being active whether it running, playing team sports or hitting the gym. Gradient compression: Skins gradient compression has been engineered to provide the correct level of surface pressure to specific body parts, enhancing circulation and delivering more oxygen to active muscles. Increased circulation also helps eliminate lactic acid build up and other metabolic wastes so you can go harder for longer and recover faster. Focus: Skins wrap and support key muscle groups which reduces vibration and helps maintain muscle alignment. The seams are strategically placed to act as 'anchor points' offering focused support and stability. The fabric in skins is warp knitted using multiple fine quality yarns to giver superior performance. Warp knit fabrics have no natural stretch - instead, the spandex mix ensures specific levels of elasticity and perfectly controlled compression. Some other compression brand use circular kit which has a natural stretch, making it hard to maintain the correct level of compression. Circular knit fabrics are also less durable and likely to run if snagged. Warp knit construction has a 'float line' between loops to aid moisture management. Multiple yarns are used for added strength and to eliminate running if the fabric is torn. Logo features more prominently along with a higher density signature contrast stitching. In addition moisture wicking, temperature management and 50+ UV protection.Colours: Black, White. Polyester. Machine washable.
This is part of a layering system inlaid with smart, new technology to help cyclists perform at their best. All these cycle shorts, compression jerseys and base layer tops feature Skins dynamic gradient compression to help you power through the miles.This series can accurately determine compression levels required while athletes are in motion. Different sports require different levels of compression in different areas and it's here that this series excels. Skins studied exactly where on the body compression should be applied, and how much compression is needed during activity. The results are applied into these garments to create the new Skins Dynamic Gradient Compression. Skins performed a 3D body scan of hundreds of athletes, amateur and professional, of all shapes and sizes. From the 800,000 measurements taken of each athlete, Skins established 400 key fitting points. This provides the blueprint for these garments.In addition these garments feature Memory MX fabrics to provide controlled, consistent elasticity and perfectly focused support, complementing the body's natural movement and reducing the risk of injury.Colours: Black, Black/Yellow, White.
