AIS Athletes in 2XU Compression – Official Supplier to the AIS

Engineered from world class materials, 2XU Compression has proven it’s all about the fabric. Boasting circular knit structure, a 50/70 Denier fabric for unparalleled strength and the most accurate, graduated compressive design, 2XU supplies the premier compression products on the market today.

AIS Senior Sport Physiologist (Fatigue and Recovery), Dr Shona Halson, said that 2XU’s compression collection truly represents the pinnacle in high performance compression wear and is therefore a worthy exclusive Official Compression Partner to the AIS.

“It’s important for the AIS to partner with companies who have a similar dedication to the pursuit of excellence and can provide our athletes with top of the range, high performance products. We are excited to be partnering with a company that shares our values, understands the importance of research and is committed to ongoing product development.

The AIS is always looking for the edge and together with 2XU we will be conducting research into the physiological benefits of compression products. This will feed into 2XU’s product development, and will help our athletes stay at the top of their game.”

While compression has been used in the medical industry for 150 years, only recently have a number of research articles and studies been published which confirm the benefits of wearing compression garments both during and after exercise. With an obsessive focus on delivering superior fabrics and tangible benefits, 2XU has built a highly technical compression range which reflects relentless research and development.
2XU Director of Sales and Marketing, Aidan Clarke, is thrilled to be declared the Official Supplier of compression products to the AIS.

“The selection as Official Compression Partner to the AIS demonstrates our steadfast commitment to superior product development, testing and garment research is paying off.  We’ve worked hard to develop a reputation for producing only the finest sporting apparel in the market, and we’re exceptionally proud of this,” said Clarke.

With a superior researched design, 2XU Compression leads the field in high performance compression.  Compression is one of the fastest growing segments of 2XU; a reflection of the world-class fabrics used and ongoing feedback from elite athletes and leading sports institutes around the world.
