2XU Compression Calf Guards are one of FuelMe’s Top selling compression products and are suitable for runners and all endurance athletes recovering from lower leg injuries, suffering from shin splints, or if trying to improve running performance. The specifically target the calf muscle, a major driver in venous return from your lower body, and can be worn during competition or used simply as a recovery tool. With similar benefits to compression tights but just around the lower leg, calf guards improve circulation and protect against leg fatigue and calf muscle soreness. They are an essential training and recovery tool for people who need extra support through their calf region, or when recovery from calf tears or lower leg injuries.The 2XU Calf Guards may appear simple but they are strategically designed to be exceptionally effective for calf muscle containment when training and competing. Repeated muscle vibration is directly related to causing fatigue, muscle damage (small tears) and shin splints. The convenience of the calf guards allow the athlete to use their preferred sock and can also be worn under a wetsuit making transition times faster during a triathlon. NB: 2XU Calf Guards are IN PAIRS – Left and Right Fit.

KEY FEATURES

Superior grade circular knit for 360° stretch + unsurpassed power

Highest grade elastane yarns with invista lycra®

Antibacterial + moisture wicking

UPF 50+ sun protection

Flat Lock stitching for maximum comfort.

IMPROVED CIRCULATION
Faster warm up and enhanced overall circulation. Graduated compression of the limbs actively encourages and increases venous return to the heart and lymph to the lymph nodes.

2XU DVT
Deep Vein Thrombosis is a condition that mainly affects the lower body and is associated with long periods of travel or inactivity. 2XU Compression garments enhance blood flow in these areas through enhanced venous return, reducing the risk of DVT.

IMPROVED RECOVERY
Therapeutic rated fabric provides greater pressure and recovery benefit by helping the pumping action of the cardiovascular system; removing blood lactate from exercising muscles leading to faster muscle repair.

2XU ANTI BACTERIAL
Embedded with an anti-bacterial, odour resistant application, 2XU Compression can help minimise odour and prevent bacterial growth.

REDUCED FATIGUE
During exercise, your muscles are exposed to forces that cause vibration. This major cause of muscle fatigue, known as muscle oscillation, can be reduced when wearing compression garments. This leads to improved muscle endurance, strength and power.

2XU SUN PROTECTION
UPF50+. Through the fabric composition of Nylon and Lycra, our compression garments offer increased protection from harmful UV rays.

HEIGHTENED AGILITY
Heightened proprioception increases senses and awareness for enhanced stability and agility. Proprioception can also help with improved technique as you remain aware of your body’s positioning, improving the balance control system and muscle coordination.

2XU MOISTURE MANAGEMENT
2XU Compression fabrics channel moisture away from the skin, keeping you dry and comfortable.

REDUCED DAMAGE
2XU Compression features muscle containment properties which reduce muscle damage. By reducing muscle damage during exercise and minimizing swelling post-exercise, 2XU Compression can significantly reduce the severity and duration of exercise induced muscle injury and soreness such as Delayed-Onset Muscle Soreness (DOMS).

2XU COMFORT
In all 2XU Compression garments, reinforced flat lock stitching is used to combine strength with comfort. Use of flat lock stitching helps reduce chaffing and enables the garments to be used in a variety of sports and activities where comfort is essential.

2XU GRADUATED PRESSURE
2XU’s graduated compression technology delivers regulated pressure throughout our garments to deliver performance benefits during and post exercise. By enhancing circulation through increased venous function, more oxygenated blood is delivered to the muscles that need it most. At the same time, by-products created by exercise, such as lactic acid, are flushed from the muscles to reduce fatigue and decrease recovery time.

2XU MUSCLE STABILITY
During exercise, muscle vibration is a large contributor to muscle fatigue and damage. 2XU Compression stabilizes these muscles, enhancing power and reducing fatigue.

2XU MADE
Using our exclusive high performance fabric, 2XU Compression garments are engineered to fit tight, whilst maintaining comfort and allowing free range of movement during exercise and long periods of wear.

2XU CLIMATE
Through heightened circulation, 2XU Compression regulates your body temperature in both hot and cold conditions. Using and enhancing your body’s natural cooling and heating mechanisms, 2XU Compression ensures you remain comfortable in a range of climates.
