Skins Compression shorts


Price as reviewed:

This product is featured in: Cycling shorts grouptest.

We were intrigued to try these shorts from Skins, which use the same BioAcceleration technology as the company’s recovery clothing.

This makes for a supportive feel around your muscles yet manages to retain comfort, without any cutting in or over-tightness.


The chamois is also worth shouting about. It's constructed from four varying densities of foam and uses Elastic Interface Technology, making for an incredibly well positioned and protective pad. Female-specific shorts are also available.
