Not just tight, but right.
Rat Race compression is the real deal. Using research from Progressive Sports Technology at Loughborough University we have developed compression garments that are not simply close fitting but provide targeted compression to those areas where your blood flow is at its slowest.
Wearing our compression garments, you’ll benefit from improved circulation (with more oxygen being supplied to your muscles) increasing both the power and endurance of your key muscle groups.
Made to last, fit and stay comfortable.
Rat Race compression garments only use our high-grade RX fabric that we’re confident will stand up to intense use, and will hold their fit, wash-after-wash, adventure after adventure, from city to summit.
When you get hot… you sweat. Moisture evaporating from the skin has a cooling effect, hence sweating during exercise is the body’s way of keeping itself cool and maintaining an optimal performance temperature.
We have sought to enhance this process (and your performance) by incorporating the latest moisture wicking fabrics into our compression garments. Their fast transport systems increase the efficiency with which sweat is moved away from your skin and into the atmosphere, helping you to stay dry, comfortable and ready to perform.
Constructed to improve moisture management Lycra® Sport Energy fibre provides more consistent compression power with outstanding freedom of movement.
All our compression garments also use flatlock stitching, who’s strong yet flexible properties create garments with superb comfort and durability.
