These calf guards from 2XU feature varying levels of compression to increase blood flow – for greater muscle oxygenation and quicker recovery times – and also hold the muscles in place to contain movement, the theory being that decreased jolting of muscles on impact lessens muscular fatigue.

They initially feel very tight, but are easy to get used to, the seamless design keeping them itch-free and as comfy as can be. They did make our legs warmer than training barelegged, but the sleeves didn’t make things too uncomfortably sweaty.

After completing running sessions in them, we had less calf and shin muscle soreness than without too and we’ve also used them purely for recovery to good effect. If you’re into colour co-ordination of kit, they’re also available in black, red and hot pink.

Verdict


Great quality compression sleeves for the colour conscious
