Go hard, or go home. That is the SKINS motto. SKINS was started in 1996 by an aspiring Australian who had a sports science background and a simple, bold ambition: to do all the physical activities he could ten years ago, and still feel bullet-proof. He started with the knowledge that increased blood circulation helps the body perform better. By wrapping his muscles in a second "skin," he could accelerate blood flow and increase oxygen delivery to working muscles, improving his power, speed, stamina and recovery. It took 5 years to invent and refine the very first pair of SKINS tights, and it wasn't long before athletes all over the world fell in love with them. Today, SKINS are sought after by discerning sports people in over 30 countries. The benefits of SKINS have been highlighted by endless independent research, with over 5 studies published in peer-reviewed medical journals. Remember to always "Keep it real" when wearing your SKINS.
