The SKINS Story
SKINS was started in 1996 by an aspiring Australian physiotherapist. He had a simple, yet bold, ambition; to do everything he could ten years prior – run a half marathon, ride a century, or endure an entire weekend on the slopes – and still feel bullet-proof. He started with the knowledge that increased circulation naturally helps the body perform better. By applying specific pressures to different limbs, he could accelerate blood flow - increasing oxygen delivery to, and lactate removal from, working muscles, improving his power, speed, stamina and recovery. It took five years to invent and refine the very first pair of SKINS compression tights. It wasn’t long before athletes the world over swore by them…and still do. Today, SKINS are sought-after by the world’s elite athletes in more than 30 countries…even those that are paid to wear competitors’ imitations. Why? Because they work. The benefits of SKINS have been validated by endless independent research, with over five studies published in peer reviewed medical journals. Quite simply, SKINS allow even the strongest athletes to Recover Quicker and Perform Better.
The SKINS Philosophy
We don’t make empty promises. We don’t believe in hype. We state the solid facts. You can rest assured that all research we quote is actually performed on SKINS products – not our competitors’. We’re anything but vague. We mean what we say and we say what we mean.
We support some of the world’s best individual athletes and sporting teams. We celebrate the courage, determination and unwavering will that drives sports people forward. We respect the professionals and amateurs who do their best, whatever the circumstances. Most importantly, we believe that winning doesn’t necessarily make you a winner. It’s how you play that counts. Those that believe otherwise have lost the game before it’s even begun.
