  • With 400 fit and dynamic gradient compression, you'll notice improved power, as well as less post-exercise muscle soreness.
  • Biomechanically placed Memory MX fabric over the spine and around the scapula and obliques provides constant, controlled compression and unrestricted movement to help you to avoid the type of muscle damage you sustain in action, but only notice when you cool down.
  • Fast wicking technology transports moisture away from the skin and helps regulate body temperature. Permanent antimicrobial treatment and UPF 50+ provides all round protection. A hem gripper keeps the shirt in place as you race around.
  • Dynamic gradient compression delivers more oxygen filled blood to active muscles to increase power and stamina
  • 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.

Product Description

Skins sport products are ground breaking, body moulded, gradient compression performance equipment with built in BioAcceleration Technology which will enhance your performance in training, competition and recovery and give you an edge over your competition. Skins wrap and support key muscle groups, which reduces vibration and helps maintain muscle alignment. The fabrics also draw moisture away from the skin, keeping you dry. SKINS also helps to regulate body temperature in both warm and cool conditions. Muscles warm up through enhanced circulation, and wicking helps to circulate air, keeping you cool... Basically Skins help to improve the supply of oxygen to activate muscles, enhancing natural performance and increasing the turnaround of metabolic waste and reducing the build up og lactic acid. Introducing the new RY400 RANGE to be used to help recovery after training, which incorporates a technology that has been tested on hundreds of real athletes using 3D body scanning and dynamic compression measuring techniques. This helped SKINS determine exactly where compression is needed for optimal circulation, injury prevention and maximum comfort. "Hundreds of athletes, over 80,000 measurements of each, 400 key fitting points... PERFECT FIT!" This series from skins is designed to be worn after your chosen exercise. Stepping into the RY400 after a workout enhances the circulation in the legs, arms and shoulders. A recovering body has different compression needs to one that is in motion. This range can help to prevent muscle fatigue, eliminate delayed onset muscle soreness and improve recovery. Can even be worn whilst aslepp to really speed up your recovery!

Purchased these about 2 months ago after I started training for Time Trials. I've played semi pro basketball for 20 years and over the past couple of years found that "morning sores" became a factor in carrying on. I experienced similar (although not as bad) tiredness when training on the bike...until i purchased these. after a hard session i wear them over night and during the following day. result??? fresh legs for training the following day.:)

very happy and highly recommended!

After a dubious association with ballet and a film of the same name, I purchased these to ease my aching limbs after a distance bike ride (50km). Shower first, then wear these fellers and whilst the "tight" feeling is strange at first you'll get used to it.

Wear them to bed and you really will be ache free the next morning! Its not just some old flannel trying to sell rejuvenated 1980's rock legends Spandex to make money. It works.

Definitely recommended.

Excellent product. Everything working well and the tights are lasting well. I do wish I'd gone for a size down as I don't feel I have enough support in them. I'm a through and through medium but now thinking I should get a small pair

I first heard of these a couple of months ago. At first I did not think they would work at all.I did try cheaper compression tights and they did not work, I was therefore dubious that these would. However I went off a friends recommendation and thought that I should just go for it!

The first couple times I wore them, I felt great the next day (or better than I would have normally!), however on my third use I noticed a huge tear down one side. Luckily they were replaced quickly and I got my new set in less than 2 days-Fantastic! However could they only be working as a placebo? Due to having a couple of weeks, no exercise, after my first run I did not wear them. Big mistake, as the next day I could really feel it! After exercise this morning I have worn them all day. I already feel great!

Another great point that I did not think about, is that they actually keep you cool whilst you wear them. I was worried that at night they may make my legs boiling, but this is not the case.

You cannot go wrong!

I bought these for training and after running the Athens classic marathon, i do believe they help and they are comfortable even if you do have to keep adjusting them to get the knee section where they should be. They regulate your temperature too, I was never too hot or too cold. BUT... I wonder if I could have saved a few pounds by getting the standard version instead of the recovery version, all you really need is the compression to help recovery, so if i had to buy them again I would probably get the A200 tights.

Bought as recovery wear after a total knee replacement but hope will also be useful post ride once I get back onto the bike for some serious catching up of mileage. In spite of massively swollen knee have retained shape well and done a great job of reducing swelling on bad days. Comfortable enough to sleep in and discrete enough to wear under work trousers. Equally fine under shorts, they look fine to be out in the world in. If I lost mine now I would be on site buying another before a day had gone by.

They have helped me a lot during my marathon training. Some of my runs have been late at night which would normally mean my legs being stiff in the morning. The tights really get rid of the tightness leaving my legs feeling slightly looser. Also helps keep your legs warm during the winter months.

Slight downside as the weather warms up they are getting a little to hot making them uncomfortable at night. Might just be me though.

Good piece of kit. Wore whilst sleeping to help recovery during a five day cycling tour (200km+ per day), in conjunction with protein recovery, etc. Very comfortable, and definitely helped muscle recovery (mainly quads were tired). Higher 1.73m, Weight 71kg, bought medium.
