To date, all SKINS compression garments have been made using a ‘warp-knit’ fabric. These signature fabrics have incredible recovery properties delivering unrivalled compression benefits, time after time. However, as some of you have fed back over the years, they can become a little see-through when stretched. In steps SERIES-2, utilising our first ‘squat-proof’ compression fabric. 



We spent 18mths researching and testing a whole host of different fabrics and constructions, eventually settling on a ‘double-face interlock’ fabric. Test after test, this fabric performed, delivering the same consistent compression benefits as our core warp knit fabrics but with an added benefit. No matter the stretch, the SERIES-2 fabric keeps you covered. The fabric is ‘double-faced’ meaning the front side is the same as the back side, delivering superb next-to-skin comfort. Simpler in design to its 3 and 5 siblings, the stylish SERIES-2 has you covered throughout the day, regardless of activity.


Not every athlete or sport requires the same level of compression. That’s why we have different SERIES’ available.

The body adopts a venous blood system delivering oxygenated blood to the muscles and returning used blood to the heart. The veins returning used blood to the heart sit closer to the skin’s surface; this is why you sometimes see ‘blue’ or dark veins near the surface. 

SKINS compression applies pressure to these ‘blue’ veins accelerating the blood flow back to the heart. SKINS pioneered engineered gradient compression following years of research. When you apply compression to specific body parts in a balanced and accurate way, it accelerates blood flow. This means you get more oxygen to your working muscles – boosting your performance.  

Better blood flow also helps your body to get rid of lactic acid and other metabolic wastes – which helps you work at a higher rate for longer. Plus, improved oxygenation reduces the effects of delayed onset muscle soreness and accelerates muscle repair. SKINS engineered gradient compression plays a big part in helping you recover from exercise too.

SKINS are different because their unique combination of features works better than any single component. Plus, their benefits are backed by independent testing and research – something that no other compression and therapeutic sportswear manufacturer can boast. You can discover these journals here.

SKINS benefits include:

  • Less lactic acid build-up, more muscle oxygenation – and better circulation
  • More muscle power
  • Wicking – to draw moisture away from the skin
  • Temperature control, whether it’s hot or cold
  • 50+ UV protection

The performance, recovery and lifestyle benefits of SKINS have all been independently researched and published in peer-review journals. The scientific community holds this type of product testing as the highest standard. In fact, SKINS leads the industry with peer review journal publications.

Research results show that SKINS vastly reduces the build-up of lactic acid immediately after periods of sustained exercise. This allows for a more rapid return to normal levels and minimises delayed onset muscle soreness (DOMS).
