2XU Compression Calf Guards
The 2XU Compression Calf Guards offer some of the benefits of a massage therapist at a fraction of the cost. A compression aid aimed specifically at the calf muscles, the lightweight 2XU fabric regulates heat exchange whilst keeping the build-up of moisture to a minimum, thanks to its amazing wicking qualities.
The thoroughly researched fabric has been designed to provide an increased venous return, reducing the build-up of toxins whilst increasing oxygen uptake to the muscles. This is most evident in long-distance events or prolonged activity, where the muscles are put under intense pressure and fatigue can beset the fittest of athletes. There is nothing worse than being halfway through the race of your season, only to be plagued with the dreaded cramp. This should just be a distant memory with 2XU's Calf Guards, which increase oxygenation, reducing the chances of this happening as well as picking up niggling injuries, such as joint pain and muscle tears, both common side effects of vibrations and shocks. These ailments also come about due to tired, poorly oxygenated muscles. The guards reduce fatigue and improve recovery times, allowing you to quickly get back to performing at your best.
Delayed Onset Muscle Soreness is often at the back of an athletes mind and up to now has been an uncomfortable side effect of training and racing hard. Not anymore, as the calf guards create an environment for muscle damage and soreness to diminish quicker, so you can be back out on the bike, in the pool or out running, with fresher feeling legs.
Many products claim to be only useful for certain sports. This is not the case with 2XU, who provide high-quality compression garments whether you are a triathlete, cyclist, footballer or even a gym-goer.
