UNLIKE OTHER KNEE SLEEVES we designed this compression sleeve with a single stitch line down the back and reinforced it not only with excessive stitching, but an additional layer of elastic fabric to ensure it never fails you.
THE IDEAL KNEE SLEEVE DESIGNED FOR CROSSFIT needs a balance between compression and mobility. This is why we chose a 5mm knee sleeve over a 7mm which can be too restrictive, difficult to adjust during specific workouts, and can potentially reduce blood flow when doing HIIT training.
ONE OF THE BIGGEST CHALLENGES with Knee Sleeves is getting them on and off. Due to the 5mm design and advanced elastic integration, our knee sleeve is very easy to get on and off quickly. No more fighting with your knee sleeve and doing the silly knee sleeve dance.
WHEN DESIGNING KNEE SLEEVES, there are two things that are extremely important. First, it needs to be extremely strong, and Second, it can’t bunch up. We achieve both by combining a single stitching line down the back, with, a stitching contour to ensure it does not bunch up on you like other single stitched knee sleeves can.
KNEE SLEEVES FUNCTION IN TWO WAYS, first, they provide heat to ensure the joint is sufficiently warmed up during your exercises, and second, they provide a slight compression to help with any pain you may experience in the join. At Element 26 we have specifically optimized these two functions for CrossFit and HIIT athletes.
Benefits of the Element 26 Knee Sleeves: Flexibility
FLEXIBILITY - 5 mm of thickness allows these sleeves to provide compression but not restrict the fluidity of motion as the 7 mm sleeves will tend to do.
Provides Joint Compression/Stability - Allows appropriate tactile feedback and support throughout all activities.
Easy to take on and off - Based on your preference and exercise selection, you can remove the sleeve throughout your workout and slide it back on EASILY when necessary. The sleeve flexibility allows for incredibly simple transitions.
Enhances Blood Flow - The compressive neoprene material increases blood flow at the knee and as a result the temperature in the joint rises and mobility improves.
Contoured in the Back - This knee sleeve is contoured or “curved” to fit the back of the knee so it fits the flexion of the knee and its shape. Knee sleeves that are not contoured will bunch and become uncomfortable during those critical moments.
Elastic Stitching - This knee sleeve is one of the only sleeves sold that has elastic stitching up the back to stretch with the sleeve as it fits to the knee shape and moves with it. This stitching is extremely durable unlike other knee sleeves without it.
