A top seller at WCP, the Compression Calf Guard, part of 2XU's Active line, provides extra calf and shin support. This is a vital training tool for people who need extra support through their calf region while exercising. The calf guards are also available with a foot stirrup for sports demanding shin protection or when support for the Achilles region is required.
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. The Calf Guards use PWX fabric technology with 70 denier enhanced compression in a medically engineered circular knit fabric structure for consistent pressure, muscle containment and shin support. A powerful compression panel wraps the calf muscle to create a pressure zone to ensure maximum muscle stabilization.
Benefits of the Calf Guards include reduced muscle fatigue, damage & injury which means faster recovery, minimized risk of shin splints, increased oxygen to muscles, and increased race or training performance for longer durations.
Your 2XU Compression garment should fit the body snugly and firmly without uncomfortably 'cutting in' to the body. For upper body garments, a free range of movement in the shoulders is essential, as is comfort in the underarms. For specific sizing, please refer to the size chart, taking into consideration that if you're near the borderline for sizes or you wish to wear your compression garment primarily for recovery purposes, be sure to choose the smaller size where possible.
