New com­pres­sion wear from Skins for run­ning and re­cov­ery

Runner's World (UK) - - Gear -


£150, wig­

1/ Ex­tremely tight, with an uber-per­son­alised fit, thanks to 3D body-scan data from which Skins says it mapped out 400 key fit­ting points.

2/ ‘Warp knit’ tech­nique means the weave zigzags through­out the fab­ric rather than go­ing straight across or down. This de­liv­ers bet­ter dura­bil­ity.

3/ Tem­per­a­ture-reg­u­lated weave that cools you down or in­su­lates you, depend­ing on what your needs are.

4/ 50+ UV pro­tec­tion as well as flat, re­in­forced seams for com­fort and greater longevity.

5/ Tighter bands wrap the larger leg mus­cles to con­trol mo­tion, keep them ac­ti­vated and de­lay the on­set of fa­tigue.

6/ Grad­u­ated com­pres­sion (tighter fur­ther down the leg) to aid postrun re­cov­ery.
