Hincapie™ Sportswear, Inc. (Hincapie), manufacturer and marketer of distinctive clothing for the performance cyclist, has launched Hincapie R3 Performance Compression. The new line of Hincapie R3 Performance Compression tights, leg press and socks are specifically designed to help speed recovery and improve athletic performance. Hincapie will provide the new R3 Performance Compression products to Team BMC Racing as part of its partnership for the 2010 racing season.
"Research shows that the use of compression garments can help you ride faster and recover quicker ride after ride," said Rich Hincapie, President of Hincapie Sportswear. "We use some of the thickest and most supportive fabrics in the industry in our R3 Performance Compression line to make products that perform better and last longer than the competition. Most of the top professionals have been using compression garments for a long time. We're now making this technology available to our clubs, teams and retail customers. Our tag line really summarizes the product benefits to the user. Ride. Recover. Repeat!"
In today's super competitive world of endurance sports where athletes are embracing every detail to improve their performance, Hincapie R3 Performance Compression can make the difference between winning and losing. That's why 5-time Olympian and reigning US Professional Champion, George Hincapie and his BMC Racing teammates will use Hincapie R3 Performance Compression products for the 2010 racing season.
Hincapie R3 Performance Compression Tights (MSRP $99.99) and Leg Press (MSRP $49.99) rejuvenate legs and promotes recovery through the Active Recovery Support System. The leg press and men's and women's specific tights use super supportive 140 denier R3 Compression Lycra in key performance zones to increase circulation and promote capillary action in the muscles. The strategic ergonomic shaping massages muscles while providing Focused Stability Control.
The Hincapie R3 Performance Compression Socks (MSRP $29.99) share the same Active Recovery Support System with the tights and leg press garments. The specific poly blended thread and Circle Knit construction promote upward circulation from the ankle into the leg, while the ribbed foot bed hugs and stabilizes the foot for unsurpassed support. The invisible toe seam is almost undetectable, while the padded heal and toe improve comfort and durability.
"I've been using compression garments to help me recover quicker for several years," said George Hincapie. "Whether I'm flying back from Europe or just hanging out around the house, Hincapie R3 Performance Compression garments help reduce my recovery time and make my legs feel better after my hardest efforts."
