Product Description

The Calf Guards R2 (Race and Recovery) are made from ultra light Compressport fabric designed for more effective venous return from the feet to the heart which considerably reduces the build up of toxins in the muscles. This is particularly effective during prolonged activity. Muscles also benefit from improved oxygenation, which helps to reduce the possibility of cramps and injuries. The Compressport fabric also optimises heat exchange and wicks away moisture, helping to regulate your body temperature. Features: Ideal for eliminating muscle and joint pain Reduce muscle soreness, eliminate lactic acid and enhance your recovery Enhanced performance Injury prevention Quality assurance Ideal for everyone Boosts your venous return Increases oxygen to the muscles Glossary: Antifatigue: The shock and vibration absorption on muscles, veins and joints increases resistance to effort. Massaging-effect fibre: Each movement triggers a micro massage providing a sensation of lightness and well-being. Patented fibre Shock Absorber: The 360 seamless compression around the arm absorbs the shock wave effect on muscles, veins and joints. Less vibrations means delayed muscle fatigue. Your resistance to prolonged exertion is enhanced. Ultralight: Your COMPRESSPORT do not retain water and will remain featherlight in all conditions COMPRESSPORT: OMPRESSPORT increases efficient venous feedback from your feet to your heart, reducing the accumulation of toxins while increasing oxygenation to the muscles. The US also greatly reduces impact shockwaves and muscle oscillation which helps prevent injury and reduces muscle fatigue. Compressport allows you to push your limits.Size Guide Largest circumference part(cm): T0: 26-30, T1: 30-34, T2: 34-38, T3: 38-42, T4: 42-46, T5: 46-50.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fit for purpose 25 Nov 2012
By Hubzy
Colour Name:Black| Size Name:T3|Verified Purchase
I was suprised how thin the material was but if you get the right size like I did, they are very effective. Only complaint is they are a little awkward to get on as they are so tough. Not had any more problems with my calf since. Better than compression socks in my view and they look good!

5.0 out of 5 stars Really effective 21 Jun 2012
By Hed
Colour Name:Black|Size Name:T3
These were bought as a gift, though I do have a pair myself and must stress the importance of buying the right size. Unlike some other compression calf guards which can be little more than lycra footless socks, this brand really does compress the muscle and support the leg.

Highly recommended for runners and triatheletes alike.

Item delivered quickly. I have also got Skins calf guards, but these feel like they give you more support so will be using these more in the future.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great compression but white gets stained easily. 15 Jan 2013
Colour Name:White| Size Name:T2|Verified Purchase
Great compression but white gets stained easily. Maybe black might be a better choice of colour as once the white gets splashed while out running through puddles it never returns to the original perfect white.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent bit of kit 8 Jun 2014
Colour Name:Black| Size Name:T3|Verified Purchase
After straining my left calf fell running for the second time I needed to make sure it didn't happen again. I'd only rested 3 weeks but wanted to do a fell race. I read a load of reviews, trail runner being the most informative, and these came top. As soon as I put them on I felt confident to go running. They fully support the calf and I had no problems at all. They are supposed to speed up the blood flow through the leg muscles improving oxygen supply and recovery by shifting lactic acid quicker than without them. They are very well made and well worth the cash.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great for running 6 Mar 2012
By BenAS
I just received these and they are of good quality, similar to Skins etc. If you are looking for compression calf guards you probably know what they do and how they can help, so I will not go in to that. But so far these are spot on, good fit and seem to be of high quality.

I got these compression devices after tearing my calf muscle. Desperate to get back to exercise quickly, and not wanting to injure my muscle further, I got these as soon as I was allowed to start training again. Once I visited the company site, it was straightforward to get the correct size (Amazon don't supply the sizing information) and they are very secure once on. They also have lasted very well through a couple of washes, and wash easily. But, for a few people (of which I am one) who have tight calf muscles, further pressure starts creating a type of compartment syndrome after exercising for some time. That means that the calf muscles start swelling, and with no place to swell to, they start compressing the blood vessels. That leads to poor blood supply to the muscle, and cramps. At worst, it can cause muscle injury although this is uncommon. I must emphasise that most people will not have tight calf muscles (I only learned that I did from my physio) but it is a warning to those people to be aware of the problem. Reluctantly, I stopped using them, and I am exercising without cramping up now.
