Sportsmart’s clothing manager, Liam Collins, explains the technology in one of our popular compression brands: 2XU.
Compression gear helps the body to perform at optimum level, and recover faster, so is a popular item to wear during training, competition and recovery.
2XU fabric technology includes:
– Moisture wicking properties, to draw moisture away from the skin
– UPF50+ sun protection
– Highest grade elastane yarns with Invista Lycra, for stretch with excellent recovery performance to ensure shape is maintained
– Superior grade circular knit structure, for 360-degree stretch, greater flexibility, unsurpassed power and increased durability
– Flat lock stitching, for maximum comfort
All this technology combines to assist in improving circulation, muscle containment and reduced muscle vibration.
