Like all compression gear, these RGA Compress Calf Guards are designed to help improve circulation and drive nasties – such as lactate build-up and other waste products – from your muscles for a speedier recovery following intense training and/or racing.
The RGAs can be worn during or post-exercise and are easy to put on and remove. They come in two sizes – small for those with calves measuring 15.5 inches or less and large for those with 15.5 inch calves or bigger – but we did notice the fabric lost a little stretch after a couple of washes.
They’re made from an innovative circular knit, high-gauge fabric that provides good compression and feels tight, but not uncomfortably so. In fact, these calf guards can be worn for several hours without any noticeable discomfort (the same
can’t always be said for all products like this!) and the material feels soft on the skin.
