Skins Compression Layers

Our review

The only riding gear we know with physical recovery benefits
Skip to view product specifications

Skins’ compression clothing aims to help with post-ride recovery. Construction is excellent, with tight and even flat seam stitching in contrasting orange. 


There is no instant benefit while riding in the clothing – we couldn’t turn the pedals any faster or longer. However, it does help with recovery, especially after hard rides. 

The net effect of wearing Skins was clearer during multi-day rides – allowing you to go again the next day with less muscle soreness. The British Journal of Sports Medicine has even noted its benefits.


The only thing we disliked is that the top’s waist hem creeps up. We had to pull ours down regularly, which can get tiresome.
