hey i've been seeing some pros wearing those compresion leg sleeves. rathy has one that he got from a friend in korea which i don't think they sell here in america.

i was looking into these things for post-knee surgery. i've had reconstructions on both knees and i'm a couple years out from each. was thinking about taking the knee brace(s) off and replacing them with some kind of compression sleeve. the one rathy has is pretty custom though... just wondering what kind the other riders were wearing and where you can buy something like this here in america: http://gamzimall.com/shop/goods/good...dsno=186785646

Ive seen things similar to them here. You can buy compression pants for snow skiing that have different stretch around certain muscles that put more pressure against the muscle as you are riding a flexing it and the idea is that it keeps your muscle from tiring out and give it more support. I have never seen just a leg sleeve though. I would think it is the same concept though.

what is the difference between these compression sleeves and a regular knee brace?
Old     (simplej)      Join Date: Sep 2011       11-01-2012, 10:46 AM Reply   
it has to do with blood flow and muscle contraction more than stabilization

Essentially. More like a combo of underarmor and that tape on top.

I sell compression sleeves and I use them for running (I just got in to triathlons). I have never thought about using them for wakeboarding but it makes sense. In my eyes, the benefit would be a decrease in vibration in your lower legs during landing. This would lead to your legs being less sore the next day. I used to get shin splints when I would ride a lot and play other sports too. This would have helped with that.

I sell and use a brand called CEP. I like them a lot. I will have to try them while boarding next time.

I've met with the business development guys from 2XU a couple of times now in my line of work. Their stuff seems pretty legit although I am not wearing any of it at this point, mostly because I havent been real active lately. I think their goods are in over 50 NFL and NBA locker rooms right now. I'd suggest giving it a shot....it cant hurt. I'd also think the recovery sleeves could be great after a long weekend for those of us who go to work on a Monday and sit at a desk all day.

I wear the 2XU sleeves on my lower legs for running. For the purpose I use them for, which is minimizing shin splints, they work great!

Hello Friends:

Good news. The entire ArmorSkin product line is coming stateside!

In partnership with Gamzi, Inc. we are re-branding the product line under the new global name "EnerSkin" (UnderArmour didn't want us selling here in the US under the original name too much )

Anyway, we are in the process of updating the factory to generate EnerSkin branded and packaged items with official U.S. sizes. This should be complete in a month or so.

The entire line (sleeves, shirts, etc.) will be available soon on our US website www.EnerSkinAmerica.com and hopefully at a retailer near you.

This is real, official and happening - not a knockoff - we have partnered with Gamzi, Inc. out of Korea.

Please tune into www.EnerSkinAmerica.com for more info....and e-mail me if you want to be kept updated on when the products are available.

Thanks,
John

I have some Skins A200 compression tights that I wear occasionally when CrossFitting. They're ok. However, if knee issues are your concern and you want a knee compression sleeve that won't slip off, I cannot recommend Rehband enough. Look them up on Amazon. They're not cheap, but they work. I wear those almost every day I work out. As I've progressed at wakeboarding and started landing in the flats on some of my wake jumps, I've noticed it's much harder on my knees so I started wearing them for wakeboarding as well. I probably look like a Wally but who cares? My knees don't hurt the next day if I wear 'em, so imma keep wearin' 'em!

Specifically, you want the Rehband 7mm knee sleeve (the blue one).

Greg, a good brand for a knee brace is at CTI, which you can have the doctor get you that is custom fitted. It would be a good idea to try and get your insurance to cover the bulk of the price, because they can go up to $1500.
