SKINS is a compression sportswear company born in 1996, when an Aussie skier consulted with NASA and other experts to create tight-fitting garments that supplied more oxygen to his muscles. Soon both pro and amateur athletes began wearing his creation: SKINS, compression sportswear that improve power, speed, stamina and recovery.
SKINS’ benefits are backed by independent testing. The benefits of wearing SKINS include more muscle power, less lactic acid build-up, more muscle oxygenation, and better circulation. In addition, SKINS wick moisture away from the skin, provide temperature control over hot and cold conditions, and supply 50+ UV protection.
Wildfire Sports & Trek currently stocks a range of SKINs sleeves and tights.
