Skins A200 long-sleeve compression top and tights £106

Science-proven performance

BikeRadar score 4/5

The latest addition to the Skins range is a mid-priced compression line for athletes looking to boost their training and recovery on a modest budget. As with all compression gear, the A200 kit works by increasing circulation to get more oxygen to muscles, helping to flush out lactates and keep muscles fresher.

Care is needed when pulling the top and tights on to avoid snapping threads from the muscle-hugging seams but once out training, the panelling and rubbery grippers keep them comfortable and secure. 

The impressive ‘Warp Knit’ fabric wicks away sweat well, helping to maintain body temperature in all conditions. The A200 kit is thin enough to slip under normal training gear, making it a great choice under mid-layers for early spring before the kit’s 50+ UV protection is needed later in the year.
