The 2012 USA Olympic road cycling team had some stylish kits thanks to compression wear maker, SKINS.
But, not only did they look good, they also contributed to the success of the team, which included gold-medalist, Kristin Armstrong.
SKINS Compression Wear provides the correct level of pressure to specific parts of the body, enhancing circulation and delivering more oxygen to muscles –and, consequently, boosting your power, speed and stamina.
