Recofit is the thinnest, lightest and coolest sleeve I tested so far. The materials are composite material of 62% nylon, 35% spandex, and 2% carbon. Recofit calls this technology "Resistex" You can read about the technology here: http://recofit.co/compression-technology/ . The sleeve is made from two pieces of
fabric: a back panel that wraps the calf muscle and another one that
wraps around the rest of the shin and soleus. The back calf panel is
tighter and less stretchy, while the wrap-around piece seems to be a
uniform tightness the entire length of the sleeve. The compression is gradient
The sleeves comes in two colors, black and white and are left/right leg specific.
On the run
As mentioned above this sleeves are very slick and light weight. The sleeves material breaths well and transport moisture away from your skin. Recofit has paid attention to other sleeves downsides by adding features
such the way of secure the fit. Recofit has added a loop of spandex at
the top of the sleeve, this feature secure the fit and the sleeve stays
up during all my runs.This will be my choice of sleeves on race day due to its light weight and breath ability. Recofit looks fast and they feels fast. Recofits sleeves are by far the best sleeve when it comes to the performance of the race day for those reasons.
Great lightweight breathable sleeve with nice compression and a secured fit. A sleeve for the race day.
