Salomon Lab EXO IV Calf Long

Price £35

For race and recovery the EXO IVs offer a cost effective way of supporting the calf during a run or helping tired muscles to recover afterwards without the expense of investing in a full tight. The unusual dimpled texture feels as though it is actively massaging the lower leg during exercise and there is a distinct (and not unpleasant) sensation of having the calf lifted and cradled. The material wicks moisture away effectively and includes the to-be-expected 50+ UV sun protection in addition to an excess of reflectivity that will have you glowing like Tron on a night run.
