Product Description

Product Description

SKINS long tights, with gradient dynamic compression and a feminine look and cut, offer support to muscles and tissues. They provide improved circulation and reduced muscle vibration during training and fitness exercises. They are made of 5 different materials and panels to biomechanically provide the necessary support to knee joints, hips and Achilles tendon for optimal compression and maximum agility. These tights target the muscles through gradual pressure to accelerate the circulation and improve oxygen supply. The result: more power, speed, endurance and faster recovery . They are designed to reduce the risk of injury while actively transporting sweat away from the skin for optimized temperature regulation. They are antibacterial and eliminate odours ionically. These tights can be worn by themselves or with other layers depending on the weather and season (eg: with running pants). They provide a maximum UV protection of 50+ and have practical key pocket.

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 A400 RANGE to be used during 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!"

5.0 out of 5 stars 2nd Skin 27 May 2012
Colour Name:Black Silver| Size Name:MH|Verified Purchase
This does everything it says on the tin, yet it is so comfy. I must admit I was a bit skeptical at first as to the effectiveness of it, but it does really feel like a second skin and I didn't feel as fatigued as I normally do after my workout classes. I'm looking to get the shorter version now that the temperatures are getting warmer.

5.0 out of 5 stars Loving these 13 Mar 2014
Colour Name:Black Silver| Size Name:SH|Verified Purchase
I am using these for my long runs training for a marathon. I read a lot of reviews before buying and I have found they do seem to live up to the reviews. Maybe some of it is psychological but they do seem to enable me to run further and recover more quickly.

5.0 out of 5 stars Skins A400- FANTASTIC! 19 Aug 2013
By X ss
Colour Name:Black Silver| Size Name:LH|Verified Purchase
I love these tights and yes they are tight just like your second skin. Make sure you order the right size as per Skins sizing and not from Amazon sizing because if the tights are too big or too small then the effect will be lost.
Some Market sellers have a photo of the sizing guide.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best ever fit 3 Dec 2013
Colour Name:Black silver| Size Name:XSH|Verified Purchase
Until Skins bought out the 'shape' sizing I always found the waist band too tight (XS is my size according to Skins - I'm 5ft 2 and 98lbs). I have the same problem with bras as I hate anything restricting my breathing. These are near-perfect now.

I run 50+ miles a week (more when marathon training) and consider myself a competitive runner (sub-90 half). These do seem to make a difference to recovery times. I love them in the winter (although they're not that warm) but will probably just use them as recovery tights in the summer.

5.0 out of 5 stars excellent quality and performance 17 May 2011
Colour Name:Black Silver| Size Name:MH|Verified Purchase
the lady skins are a great product, I was helped to choose the correct size using the sizing chart. My legs definitely feel less tired, I even kept them on all day once between rides( I am on my legs all day) and was not hot or uncomfortable.
