These sleeves are made from 2 layers of our unique woven polyester/rubber blend made to our exact specifications. One of the main materials in these sleeves is rubber, meaning that the sleeves are elasticated to give a stretch reflex. So at the bottom of your Squat or press the sleeve is stretched then once you squat or press back up the energy is released from the sleeve (just like when you stretch an elastic band and then let it go) which helps you spring back up. They provide you with good compression - this will limit patella movement, and can increase proprioception (the capacity to feel the position of a joint in space as sensed by the central nervous system). So our sleeves are more than a mechanical support mechanism for the joint, but also used to improve proprioception!
POWER NEOPRENE SLEEVES
These are made from our NEW high strength neoprene for great compression and support. This means that our knee sleeves will limit patella movement, and can increase proprioception (the capacity to feel the position of a joint in space as sensed by the central nervous system). This gives you increased joint stability and higher muscle coordination.
Compressing a joint encourages blood flow through the blood vessels of the knee or elbow joints, this results in less pain and swelling during and after performance.
Due to the elasticated nature of our NEW high strength neoprene and the straight cut design of our POWER Sleeves, kinetic energy can be stored. This can be subsequently released during the extension of the knee or elbow to provide additional Power and Performance in movements in which you extend your knee (squats, leg press, etc.) or elbow (log, bench press etc.).
WARMTH & COMFORT. Neoprene Sleeves help your joints warm up quicker and retain temperature during exercise. They are also comfortable enough to wear throughout your workout. They are also good for moving and will allow a full ROM in comfort whilst still providing support.
POWERLIFTING. 7mm is maximum thickness that can currently be used in most Powerlifting Federations. We have made our POWER Sleeves to fit the 30cm maximum allowable length, but also to give you the best coverage of your knees, quads and hamstrings.
Compression, Support & Very Comfortable
EXTREME NEOPRENE SLEEVES
These sleeves really do give you the best of both worlds. The warmth and comfort of a Power Neoprene sleeve and the compression and mechanical advantage of a Dual Ply sleeve. Our 9mm Extreme Knee Sleeves & 7mm Extreme Elbow Sleeves are designed to give you ultimate performance, compression and support from a neoprene sleeve. The high strength neoprene gives a tight fit and gives strong compression. The straight cut of the sleeve force your leg straight as it returns to its original shape. Coupled with our NEW thicker high strength neoprene giving you a stretch reflex you will get maximum rebound from this neoprene sleeve! If you are looking for extra compression or more rebound than regular neoprene sleeves or if you are doing Strongman in which there are no thickness rules, then our 9mm Extreme Knee Sleeves are the choice for you!
Warning! Our EXTREME Sleeves are definitely not for beginners, and have been engineered for huge weights and Elite Athletes!

It has an extra layer over and above our Dual Ply Sleeves. These sleeves will make a noticeable difference in forcing your joint straight and will give you the most mechanical advantage of any of our sleeves. They provide extreme compression they can be difficult to get on and off. They can also be uncomfortable if you are not used to them.
