This emerging brand from Denmark prides itself on its high-performance sports apparel for triathlon, cycling and running. Their compression range utilises Invista’s Power Lycra, a stronger version of classic Lycra, allowing a compressive effect to be easily applied to the body.
Fusion’s latest compression offering, the Power Compression tights, use a panelled design to provide a comfortable amount of support and compression. The Power Lycra’s also complemented by a technical wicking fabric – located behind the knees – to provide extra comfort for active use.
Ideally, compression wear needs to be made specifically for your leg measurements in order to provide accurate compression up your limbs. So with only standard sizes offered by Fusion you’ll have to make sure you try before you buy.
One warning to Fusion, however: although the compression in our test garment was at an adequate level and certainly felt beneficial, with an £80 price tag these have major rivals to contend with.
