We conducted a study into the effects of compression when running.
The study proved that when runners wear KIPRUN sleeves:
1 - blood flow is improved by 47% which increases oxygen levels in the muscles,
2 - vibration in tissues is reduced, which in turn reduces muscle damage,
3 - biochemical parameters for running are improved.
As a result, wearing KIPRUN sleeves improves running performance.
Boost, tone up and improve your performance with the special yarn in the 900 running compression sleeves. The natural mineral permanently integrated into the fibre reflects the body's heat energy to gently boost the cells, improve muscle elasticity and make your skin look better. The results of the tests on this special yarn show that this incredible fabric not only boosts your athletic performance but also enhances your physical appearance.
EFFICIENCY OF COMPRESSION / SIZES
The 900 compression sleeves are more efficient than the 500 compression sleeves because they cover more calf circumference sizes. And most importantly, each size offers a tighter calf circumference, providing enhanced efficiency, particularly at the boundaries of each size range.The more precise design of the calf and the finer weave also ensure greater efficiency.
Compression using the sleeve is effective DURING exertion. It is not suitable for recovery.
How to choose your size:
To optimise the effectiveness of the leg sleeve, take different and precise measurements around the larger of the calves and select the matching leg sleeve size.
size S - calf circumference: 28 / 31 CM
size M - calf circumference: 32 / 35 CM
size L - calf circumference: 36 / 39 CM
size XL - calf circumference: 40 / 43 CM
How to slip on the leg sleeve
Slide your leg sleeve over itself going from the calf down to the ankle.
Using both hands, stretch your leg sleeve out to the side to get it over your foot and roll it carefully up the leg from just above the ankle joints.
Adjust the leg sleeve so it is just below the knee, ensure the material is evenly spread around the calf with no folds along the leg*.
* * If you still can't get the leg sleeve right above the ankle joint and just below the knee, priority should always be given to the fit below the knee.
right / left
for maximum efficiency, we advise you to put the right sleeve on the right leg (and the left on the left).

TESTS AND WARRANTY
At Kiprun, all our products are tested by a panel of users under the real-life conditions for which they are designed. These tests are coordinated and supervised by a team of engineers dedicated to this mission. All these tests enable our product managers, engineers and the whole Kiprun team to develop, create and design technical products that meet our users' needs.
The DECATHLON SportsLab, our R&D department, works with the Université de Saint-Etienne.In the development of the special yarn, independent external laboratory tests confirmed increased infra-red ray emissivity towards the body, as well as the odour-reduction properties that had been experienced and the benefits of UV protection.
