compression for cycling
When it comes to professional cycling, it always pays to be one step ahead. As anyone involved in competitive cycling can testify, if there’s one thing you can be sure of it’s that everyone’s searching for that competitive edge. Whether you’re a track cyclist, a road cyclist, a mountain biker or a triathlete, everyone’s looking to make those marginal gains - because shaving just a few seconds off your time can make the difference between winning and losing.
CRX compression tights cover the quads, upper and lower leg and knee joint - making them our most comprehensive compression support for cyclists. By providing graduated compression to the lower body, the site of localised and intense movement, athletes experience boosted venous return for a faster recovery and powerful performance.
Implementing CRX as part of your cycling recovery protocol is the fastest way to ensure you’re on form, every time. With daily training sessions and rides, cyclists experience aches and DOMS on waking which can be a huge detriment to both practice and performance. Resolving muscular pains, swelling and even injury can be rapidly sped up with the use of dedicated CRX compression for cyclists.
Using compression as part of your recovery protocol helps you to boost your recovery by maximising venous return. The stimulation of blood flow means muscles receive more oxygen-rich blood, faster - helping limbs to recover quickly from intense exercise. The other aspect of CRX compression is the reduction of pain and DOMS by 43%, which can be the difference.
Compression shorts provide intense, localised compression to the quads and hamstrings - oxygenating and reducing swelling of muscles at rest. Reducing DOMS in your largest smooth plane of muscle is the quickest way to re-energise the legs, to get you over the finish line first.
compression calf sleeves
CRX calf sleeves have been designed by experts and professional athletes, to provide compression like no other. Cycling puts a strain on lower limbs, from bursts of exercise paired with endurance and intense training regiments. We'll help you succeed.
With such a huge variance in modes of cycling, it follows that athletes can expect a huge variance in physiological strain. From the burns and splinters of indoor track to the road rash of the urban cyclist, the consequences of pushing yourself on the bike can be serious - and often more than just skin deep.
Muscles can suffer impact injuries associated with mountain biking, while Track and Cyclocross professionals are all-too-familiar with pulled muscles, hamstring injuries and repetitive strain from the pedals - not to mention back-based injuries that can accompany the sustained and specific posture of the sport. Indoor track cyclists also don’t get the relief of freewheeling in outdoor terrain - meaning every second spent in the saddle is intense.
CRX compression tops help to combat lower back pain, one of the most common complaints of professional cyclists. Training your core is key for high-level cycling, and when paired with repetitive movements, muscle strains can happen easily.
A common site of complaint for elite cyclists involved in competitive events, CRX compression socks get to work on sore feet and heels. Reduce pain through the dorsal muscles, heel and ball and ensure that muscles are energised for speed and dexterity, with our high-quality Coolmax thread for a comfortable, lightweight and breathable fit.
