Skins’s S400

SKINS Compression, the world’s leader in gradient compression sportswear, is joining its industry-recognized gradient compression technology with advanced thermal and garment construction to shape the brand’s latest S400 base layer collection. To help competitors perform well from the slopes to the trail, SKINS’ new line features scientifically-proven compression capabilities, improved seams and panels, and a fresh sleek design with thermal brushed fabric, for maximized muscle support, injury prevention and body-warmth retention.

Taking advantage of SKINS’ partnership with the Austrian Ski Federation, the brand used its “All-in-One Suit,” originally crafted specifically for the ski jumping team, as inspiration for the S400 line. The line, which is specifically designed for cold-weather sports, leverages developments made by working with the professional and Olympic-bound team, and combines the brand’s long-standing knowledge of compression technology for seamless muscle movement, recovery and overall performance. The S400 collection provides the following proven benefits of the SKINS engineered gradient compression:

  • Increased oxygen flow to muscles: Improves performance and reduces muscle and joint pain
  • Reduced risk of injury: Re-positioned seams and panels provide enhanced stability to muscles
  • Maximized protection: Includes state-of-the-art moisture management, body temperature optimization and 50+ UV protection

The S400 thermal gear is made from a scientifically advanced fabric, developed for SKINS to keep competitive athletes warm in the colder months without overheating. Additionally, the S400 line features:

    • Stretch airflow mesh: For increased ventilation and breathability
    • Internal silicone gripper: Prevents garment movement during activity
    • Articulated sleeves and knees: Enhances comfort, support and flexibility
    • SKINS Muscle+: Minimizes muscle vibration for less muscle damage and less pain later
    • 400-level fit: Unique Body Mass Index (BMI)/anthropometrical algorithm based sizing ensures proper fit for maximum benefits

•Warp knit fabric: Optimum compression control and durability

•Thermal fabric: Combines high pulling and abrasion resistance with breathability and a brushed interior to hold body heat

“We are thrilled to take our long-standing partnership with the Austrian Ski Federation one step further to offer athletes the chance to experience the next generation of winter compression wear with the Olympic-level,

performance-enhancing benefits of our S400 line,” said Johnny West, General Manager of SKINS North America. “When we originally designed the all-in-one suit we were unaware how powerful of a tool it would become for the team. We’re now using it as a building block to create an entire line that addresses the most vital winter performance concerns – optimum performance, warmth and injury prevention – to allow the fitness-minded consumer to better enjoy the slopes.”
