Benefits & Features

Activities like cross training and down hill cycling require intense use of your arms and this is where our Essentials Unisex Sleeves work their magic.

SKINS Engineered Gradient Compression is a proven technology, known to provide circulatory benefits that assist with getting more oxygen to your arm muscles. In addition, the compression helps to minimise vibration so you can ride and work out longer without becoming as fatigued. They can also help to reduce your risk of injury and delayed onset muscle soreness (DOMS).

Our warp knit fabric construction is highly durable and is proven to provide 50+ UPF protection from the sun.

New ADAPTIVE Technology means you’ll feel cool when it’s hot and warm when it’s cool. It does this by binding moisture in the polymer structure to keep you feeling warm and dry and then releasing the moisture to the surface when you start to heat up, helping you to cool down.

Be seen in the dark! You’ll be able to continue running or cycling in low light conditions safe in the knowledge that you will be seen through the use of our improved reflective logos on the black/gold and white sleeves.

In addition to cross training and cycling our Essentials Unisex Sleeves are also suitable for basketball, cricket, and other sports that require heavy use of your arms.

I was skeptical before i bought these, so i tried them and what a big help they were with my workouts, I find the  SKINS brand the best, supportive & most comfortable.

The sleeves performed well.  They alleviated the pain I was feeling in my triceps while on long cycling rides.  I purchased the white ones and they stain easily.  The first wash did not completely clean them.
