Skins RY400 compression tights review
The new RY400 recovery tights use graded compression on tired muscles to aid recovery and limit the damaging effects of air travel on performance.
They also aim to reduce the overheating and twisted seams that can make other recovery tights uncomfortable for long-term use.
Stretch panels at the knees prevent the tights twisting and don’t noticeably restrict movement. When sitting for long periods we still felt the tights bunch around the knees, but it was never a problem.
Mesh material used for the fly and rear panel reduce heat build-up and help introduce ventilation into the otherwise stuffy environment the Nylon/Spandex compression material creates. The RY400s are good for air travel and recovery as they stay comfortable even above 20°C.
