There are great benefits to wearing compression, whether it be socks, calf sleeves, tights or shorts. Compression serves to promote better circulation, especially from the lower legs, which in turn helps keep the athlete feeling fresher throughout extended periods of exercise. It also supports the major muscle groups, which reduces the damage that happens during exercise. And as a recovery aid, compression helps speed healing of damaged tissue through the increased blood flow. We carry a range of compression items from 2XU and CEP, two of the leading brands.
