Get maximum support on race day or during that long ride. With graduated compression engineering to promote increased circulation, the 2XU Compression Race Sock enhances blood flow to support the calf and key muscles in the lower leg during training and competition, allowing these muscles to operate more efficiently with greater power and less fatigue. This light weight sock also channels air, wicks moisture and boasts a linked toe cage to enhance comfort during active and recovery use. The Compression Race Socks are great for post workout and also while sleeping, during rehab from injury or surgery, and for Deep Vein Thrombosis protection when traveling.
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. Graduated Compression Fit means that there are higher strength levels towards the ankle, encouraging maximum blood flow return toward the heart, promoting increased circulation for faster recovery. The guards also feature Muscle Containment - reduced muscle vibration, improved muscle alignment for increased power, and protection from muscle damage and fatigue.
These socks differ from the men's version only in sizing. 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.
