WHAT MAKES SKINS™
WARP KNIT FABRIC
At the heart of every SKINS™ Compression garment lies our unique 76% Nylon / 24% Elastane warp knit fabric – an exclusive fabric available only to SKINS™. Unlike the circular knitting often employed by competitors, our warp knit fabric boasts extraordinary compression retention. SKINS™' warp knit materials stand apart, featuring an additional thread intentionally designed to hold compression even in the face of external damage. This remarkable design empowers us to utilize breathable, moisture-wicking materials while ensuring intense, consistent compression. While most compression wear on the market loses 50% of its compression after 45 minutes, SKINS’ compression holds its strength for hours.
Each SKINS™ garment is meticulously designed with a strategic arrangement of patented compression panels, setting us apart from the competition. Our garments boast anywhere from four to over a dozen of these panels, each calibrated to deliver precise levels of compression to various muscle groups and joints. This innovative approach to compression paneling forms the foundation for our Gradient Compression technology. It's not just about how much compression you wear; it's about how and where that compression is applied. No matter the SERIES, you can trust that SKINS™ has got your back (and your legs, arms, and core) with the right compression, right where you need it.
At the heart of SKINS™ innovation lies our Gradient Compression technology. Visualize this technology as squeezing a toothpaste tube from the bottom, starting forcefully and lessening strength as you move towards the opening. You would never just squeeze a toothpaste tube from the middle. In our garments, strategically positioned panels with varying compression levels play a pivotal role in effective design. By channeling the highest compression at the extremities and easing it closer to the heart, we enhance blood circulation. This dynamic process optimizes both performance and comfort, reducing the likelihood of muscle fatigue and swelling, ensuring you stay at your best during and after your workout.
SKINS™ Compression wear, with its targeted muscle wrapping seams and proprioception enhancement, is engineered to stabilize muscles and expedite repair, making it an essential tool for athletic trainers in managing team injuries.
