Spun Performance Knee Sleeves

Hi All,

I have had great experience with compressions socks and tops from spun performance in the past. Any reviews on the new knee sleeves. 5mm and $40 for a pair def seems like a great value and i would expect they are awesome. Would appreciate any reivews/feedback?

Thanks.
-Paul

Re: Spun Performance Knee Sleeves

I'd love to see a review as well.

I guess their release is the reason for this post

I'm a huge fan of Spun gear. I have several pairs of the socks and compression shorts. One pair of the tights and a compression t-shirt. Picked up one pair of the fight shorts recently, will definitely be picking up some more they made very well.

Re: Spun Performance Knee Sleeves

I wish they would have come out a month sooner so I could have saved $40 on my grey rehbands, not that I don't like mine but I'm sure the spun quality are excellent

Re: Spun Performance Knee Sleeves

Not sure if this is allowed or not, but I'm happy to provide a free pair to the first person that posts here that wants to give a full unbiased detailed review after wearing them for a while. We are out of stock on size small, so it would have to be someone that needs a different size.

First person to respond to this post and pm me their size and shipping address is it.

Thanks!

Re: Spun Performance Knee Sleeves

Greg, how do you think they compare to the rock tape knee caps and the rehbands?

I have not used the knee caps so my experience will only compare ours to rehband. In my opinion it all comes down to fit. For some people the rehband will fit perfectly and for other people ours will fit perfectly. I had quite a few people sample ours that had already used rehband and the opinions ranged from "wow these are great, can I keep these" to "meh, good price but I like my rehbands a lot better."

I have a somewhat odd build and my rehbands never seemed to fit right but these are spot on for me. They are a little bit shorter, so they fit someone like me that has a big difference in leg circumference from just below the knee to just above the knee.

I think it's important to remember that knee sleeves are primarily meant to keep you warm and provide a little bit of a bounce, but not to function like power lifting style knee wraps.

let me know if you have any other questions and I will do my best to answer them if I can.

I also want to say that I think rehband makes a great product that has stood the test of time and are loved by many. Were Just trying to offer another option in case somewhere is scared off by the price or just wants to try something different.

I would love to try these out. I have been looking for some. I am competing in my first sanctioned lifting competition and need some knee sleeves.
