AUSTRALIAN INSTITUTE OF SPORT
Independent research performed by the Australian Institute of Sport (AIS) has revealed powerful benefits from wearing 2XU Compression. Carried out in AIS facilities, researchers put highly trained cyclists to the test across different key indicators including performance, heart rate, blood lactate, soreness and thigh girth. As a result, they were able to find 2XU Compression improved overall performance, reduced swelling, lowered heart rates and decreased muscle soreness.
TECHNICAL MEETS COMFORT
FASTER WARM UPS
IMPROVES CIRCULATION: Graduated compression increases blood circulation to the heart and lymph nodes for faster warm ups.
HELPS REDUCE THE RISK OF DVT: Through heightened blood circulation, 2XU Compression reduces the risk of blood clots, Deep Vein Thrombosis (DVT) and swelling in ankles & limbs.
REDUCES MUSCLE FATIGUE & DAMAGE: Contains muscles to reduce vibration and damage during exercise.
HEIGHTENS AGILITY: Applies pressure to the skin surface to increase the body's awareness for improved posture, agility and stability.
IMPROVES PERFORMANCE: AIS study has revealed increased power and decreased heart rates whilst wearing 2XU compression.
FASTER RECOVERY: Graduated pressure shortens the recovery cycle through heightened pumping action of the cardiovascular system.
DECREASES SORENESS: Efficient removal of blood lactate from exercising muscles to reduce swelling, speed muscle repair and reduce soreness.
