Sub RX Men's Graduated Compression Calf Guards

Get your blood pumping and perform at your best with Sub RX Calf Guards.


Targeted compression. Greater endurance

They provide greater compression to areas where your circulation is at its slowest, aiding blood flow back to the heart and supplying your muscles with more oxygen. As a result, you'll feel more powerful and be able to keep performing for longer.


Breathable, high-wicking fabric

Constructed from the most advanced compression fabric available (Lycra Sport Energy), Sub RX Calf Guards are highly breathable and excellent at wicking moisture away from the skin, helping you stay cool and dry during intense exercise. The Lycra fabric's superb shape retention also ensures that your calf guards will hold their compression fit time after time, wash after wash.

3.0 out of 5 stars Lacks tight compression 4 Oct 2012
I bought these as a back up to a pair of Orca compression calf sleeves. These were only £10 at the time and Sub Sports gear is usually pretty good. Bought a medium (same size as the Orcas which fit very tight) but these offered very little compression. Exchanged for a small which were better, but the material feels to thin and stretchy to really give the tight compression I wanted. Fine if you don't like these things too tight, they're easy to get on and off, and keep your lower legs warm. Not really up to full post run recovery compression though.

1.0 out of 5 stars Sizing incorrect 29 July 2014
Colour Name:Black/Orange| Size Name:Medium|Verified Purchase
Followed the online size guide and with calfs measuring 38.5cm ordered medium (to fit 37 - 40cm). Arrived quickly but disappointed to find these were very loose and provided no compression. Returned to Amazon and ordered small (to fit 34 - 37cm). These also arrived quickly and unfortunately were also too loose and provided no compression. Again returned to Amazon and purchased Compressport calf guards from Wiggle - slightly more expensive but rapid delivery and EXCELLENT FIT & COMPRESSION.

In returning the medium calf guards to Amazon I encountered problems with online system so was contacted by phone by an Amazon representative who gave the impression I would not be liable for return costs as the return was not due to a fault / error by myself. So I was further disappointed to find I had subsequently been charged for the return postage - presumably the return was deemed to be my fault for correctly measuring my calfs and following the Amazon size guide!

Colour Name:Black/Orange| Size Name:Small|Verified Purchase
The compression baselayer calf guards did nothing for my son. They were nylon leg covers, a good pair of socks would have worked better.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great 29 Jun 2014
Colour Name:Black/Orange| Size Name:Small|Verified Purchase
bought for 13yr old son he says that they are by far the most comfortable calf guards he's had he puts them on first then his shin pads then his other shin cover to keep it in place, therefore he doesn't get sweat rash on his leg from the shin pads
