We’ve pushed the boundaries and taken technology and compression one step further
By accelerating muscle oxygenation, the A400 range will take your performance to another level and dramatically improve muscle recovery. That’s why Brett Lee, Jonathan Thurston, Robbie Farah, Daniel Cross and Phil Waugh wear it. And, unless you have any better ideas, probably why should you too.
Forget EPO, nasal spray or cough syrup. SKINS A400 men's compression half tights are designed to enhance your performance, whatever your sport. Dynamic gradient compression accelerates your blood flow to deliver more oxygen to your active muscles – so you can work harder to be man of the match, or to shave seconds off your PB half-marathon time.
With 400 fit and dynamic gradient compression, you'll notice improved core body control and power, as well as less muscle soreness post-exercise.
In addition, biomechanically placed Memory MX fabric around the ITB band and TFL muscle group provide constant, controlled compression and unrestricted movement to help you to avoid muscle damage.
Fast wicking technology transports moisture away from the skin and helps to regulate body temperature. Permanent antimicrobial treatment and UPF 50 provide all round protection.
Now you've got yourself a pair of tights that help your perform to your best potential.
More oxygen to your muscles: Dynamic gradient compression gets more oxygen filled blood to active muscles. This means you'll have more power and stamina as you train or compete.
Rock-solid base: Memory MX fabric maximises your stability and control, while channelling the direction of your muscles
Faster recovery: Less lactic acid build-up and less muscle vibration means reduced pain the next day
400fit: A super comfortable fit, more precise, targeted Dynamic Gradient Compression and a greater range of leg lengths for men and different body shapes for women
50 UV Protection: SKINS was born in Australia, so we know a thing or two about exerting ourselves in the sun. Our fabrics have a UV protection of 50 , which means you can get out and train harder without worrying about the sun related risks.
Dynamic Gradient Compression: Increases oxygen delivery to active muscles while in motion and reduces lactic-acid build-up for more power and less recovery time
Memory MX Fabric: Memory MX fabric contains a unique high stretch elastomeric yarn – which returns to its original shape no matter how much stress you put it under
Moisture Management: Keeping you dry through advanced wicking is inherent in all SKINS fabrics - moisture is drawn away from your skin, so you stay dry and comfortable
Muscle Focus: Uniquely wrapping and supporting your key muscle groups to reduce movement and focus direction for less vibration in your muscles, less soft tissue damage and less soreness after exercise
Odour, Stink, Pong, Smell, Stench Free: 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.
Skin fit: SKINS unique sizing system is based on our unique Body Mass Index (BMI)/anthropometrical algorithm, because you only get the full benefits of gradient compression if your SKINS fit you properly
Warp Knit: The fabric in SKINS is warp knitted using multiple fine quality yarns to give superior performance - Warp knit fabrics have no natural stretch – instead, the spandex mix ensures specific levels of elasticity and perfectly controlled compression
