  • BioAcceleration Technology™ applies a balanced and accurate surface pressure over specific body parts to trigger an acceleration of blood flow
  • Increased blood flow increases oxygen delivery to working muscles for enhanced performance
  • Circulation improvements also help the body to eliminate lactic acids and other metabolic waste
  • The combination of these effects lets you work out at a higher rate for longer durations
  • Skins fit is based on a body mass index algorithm which allows a personalized, engineered gradient-compression design
  • The fabric's stretch and recovery together with pattern design ensure the correct level of surface pressure for most body shapes
  • Skins are also designed to wrap and support key muscle groups to reduce muscle movement and vibration
  • The combination of BioAcceleration Technology and muscle wrapping reduce Delayed Onset Muscle Soreness (DOMS) and accelerate recovery time
  • Moisture-managing fabric draws moisture away from skin to the surface layer where it can evaporate more quickly to keep you comfortable
  • Built-in antimicrobial property helps control odors and won't wash out or wear off
  • Fabric optimizes body temperature in both warm and cool conditions, promoting better and longer performance
  • Offers excellent protection from the sun: Ultraviolet Protection Factor (UPF) of 50+
