Compression Technology

Dynamic Gradient Compression

SKINS 400 Series is the only high performance apparel to take into account compression levels needed to increase oxygen delivery to active muscles while in motion. We call this dynamic gradient compression.

SKINS worked with the scientific and industrial research organisation in Australia to develop a device capable of taking multiple readings of the human body in motion. We hooked up SKINS athletes and for the first time ever, were able to accurately measure compression on muscles in motion - as they change shape with increased levels of oxygen-fuelled blood pumping through them.

This is revolutionary stuff – all previous compression measurements have been carried out on athletes standing still.

We now know what compression levels are required for specific muscle groups whilst static, during activity and in post exercise recovery. We know where you need movement for comfort and injury prevention, and how to get the best circulatory benefits for more oxygen delivery and reduced lactic acid build-up.

Our unique and proprietary knowledge is built into all 400 Series products. So you can go out and tear up the ground. Rip a hole in your personal best. Shred the competition and go back for more.

Engineered Gradient Compression

We’re not just trying to squeeze you. SKINS gradient compression has been engineered to provide the correct level of surface pressure to specific parts of the body. This enhances circulation and gets more vital oxygen to your active muscles – boosting your power, speed and stamina.

Improved circulation also helps to eliminate lactic acid build up and other metabolic wastes during an intense workout.

The result? You go harder, for longer and recover faster.

Warp Knit

The fabric in SKINS is warp knitted using multiple fine quality yarns to give superior performance.

Warp knit fabrics have no natural stretch – instead, the spandex mix ensures specific levels of elasticity and perfectly controlled compression. For a compression product this is superior to using circular knit which has natural stretch, making it hard to maintain the correct level of compression. Circular knit fabrics are also less durable and likely to run if snagged.

  • Warp knit construction has a ‘float line’ between loops to aid moisture management
  • Multiple yarns are used for added strength and to eliminate running if the fabric is torn

Unique Sizing

Size has always mattered a lot to us here at SKINS. After all, you want to get the maximum benefits! If compression clothing is too tight it could stop your blood racing (not a good idea) and if it's too loose, you might not get all the benefits of enhanced performance and reduced pain that SKINS provide. Almost every SKINS product has a unique size chart.

The ultimate fit.

Leading the way in compression sizing, we have developed another compression first with our SKINS 400 Series.


Size matters.

The sizing revolution continues for men, covering 3 height categories.


A range tailored for the ultimate fit, using a unique sizing system that not only takes into account height and weight as before, but now also your body shape.

We know that women are all shapes and sizes (our full 3D body scan of hundreds of active women confirmed this!) but our research allowed us to identify 2 body shapes key to giving every woman the perfect fit. Creating what is arguably the best fitting female compression garment in the market:Womens Sizing

‘A’ shaped bodies have a small waist in relation to the hip and thigh.

‘H’ shaped bodies have little variation in shape from waist to the hip and thigh.
