Compression wear from CEP – a global leader in performance-enhancing compression technology – expands its award-winning line to include new low-profile, ultra-light designs this fall, with even more coming Spring 2016.
Hailing from a 60-plus-year German lineage of medical-grade compression products, CEP socks blast the continuous debate of whether compression gear actually helps athletes improve blood flow, reduce soreness and amp recovery.
These socks were made to tackle the primary challenges that can ail road warriors, including cramps, exhaustion, moisture and heat, and pressure points and blisters. The result is a light, super-soft and highly compressive sock that proves its power by the pros that wear it. As a testament to CEP’s performance enhancement, pros like cyclocross champion Jeremy Powers, runner Meb Keflezighi, and triathlete Andy Potts slip in to their CEP faves.
CEP’s athlete-supported compression technology has been reworked in their new Fall 2015 socks, going where one might not expect compression to go…the no-show.
In addition to the trendy knee-high cut popular in compression wear right now (CEP makes these tall options too), new no-show socks by CEP won’t cover the lower leg. The company’s combination of Consistent and Graduated Compression Technologies still optimize arterial and venous blood flow even in the low-cut style.
And, the company said, the benefits of properly-applied compression go much further than circulation. CEP’s No Show socks use muscle containment to push swelling out of the Plantar complex of the foot. Due to the snug ergonomic profile of the sock, CEP’s have been found to greatly reduce rub and blistering.
For cyclists or runners who have steered away from the compression space due to a dislike for knee-highs during sport, CEP’s No Shows are an outstanding (and affordable) opportunity to give compression a spin.
Ultralight No Shows are accompanied by cousin and not-quite knee-high sibling the CEP Short Socks, which cover the ankle.
A look ahead to Spring 2016 will bring light-outdoor Merino mid- and low-cut socks geared at hikers, mountaineers, trekkers and trail runners. However, with its great breathability, winter CEP options can still be worn comfortably for warmer months. These Spring newbies will combine high-tech fibers for even better heat and moisture management, just enough stretch for a precise fit with minimum skin friction, and reliable joint stabilization.
