Product Details

Skins K-Proprium Compression Long Tights

K-PROPRIUM is the ultimate tool for endurance training and high load, high-intensity activities to help reduce muscle fatigue, enhance proprioception and reduce the risk of injury.


Fight fatigue in these K-Proprium Compression Tights! Prolonged exercise fatigues muscles, limiting the ability to perform at a sustained intensity. Fatigued muscles reduce the joint support that controls normal motion effectively, leading to poor form and a greater risk of injury. This is where enhanced proprioception can help. Proprioception is the unconscious perception of motion and spacial awareness. It's the body's ability to sense movement within joints and joint position so we know where our limbs are in space without having to look. This in-built sense is important in everyday life but it's even more important during an activity where dynamic movements and precise coordination are key to optimal performance and remaining injury free. Compression Garments and Kinesiology Taping can improve proprioceptive ability. Enhancing an athlete's proprioception, especially when fatigued, will enable them to maintain effective movement and reduce the risk of injury.

These compression tights are equipped with the new SKINS K-PROPRIUM which combines the world's best Dynamic Gradient Compression with strategically placed Laminar Bands that mimic Kinesiology Taping strategies. The Laminar Bands are embedded into the tights and follow the prime movers of the lower body muscle groups - they're the muscles used most for running, jumping and rotating.

The Laminar Bands provide support to these muscles and work to externally stimulate the proprioceptive sensors, keeping them activated and able to control motion for longer periods of time. This helps delay the rate of muscle fatigue so athletes are able to work for longer at a higher intensity. The Laminar Bands wrap from the front Adductors to the Gluteal muscles and Iliotibial Tract receptors to activate and support these powerful muscles. They also wrap around the Adductor and Quadricep muscle receptors to keep them activated even when fatigue sets in, while the U-Shaped Laminar Bands hug the gastrocnemius muscle receptors to support and protect against involuntary movement and vibrant.

The compression tights are also designed with an ergonomically shaped waistband which supports the lower abdominals and lumbar spine without restricting hip rotation or movement, while the A-Seams offer comfort and durability without chafing. The core support and stability from the ergonomically-shaped waistband supports and stabilises the lower abdominals and back. For enhanced comfort, the tights are developed with bonded hems, while also equipped with ADAPTIVE Technology which keeps you warm when it's cool and cool when it's hot. Lastly, for those who prefer to run when it's dark, the K-Proprium Tights have 360-degree reflectivity to enhance visibility in low light conditions.
