The 2XU Calf Guards may appear simple but they are strategically designed to be exceptionally effective for calf muscle containment when training and competing. Repeated muscle vibration is directly related to causing fatigue, muscle damage (small tears) and shin splints. The convenience of the calf guards allow the athlete to use their preferred sock and can also be worn under a wetsuit making transition times faster during a triathlon.

How should my 2XU Compression garments fit?
Your 2XU Compression garment should fit the body snugly and firmly without uncomfortably ‘cutting in’ to the body. If this is the case, you should review your size choice.
For upper body garments, a free range of movement in the shoulders is essential, as is comfort in the underarms.
For specific sizing, please refer to our Size Chart, taking into consideration that if you’re near the borderline for sizes or you wish to wear your compression garment primarily for recovery purposes, be sure to choose the smaller size where possible.
You will also find some helpful fit-related information in the FAQ section of the website.
