WHY YOU NEED KNEE SLEEVES
AID IN PAIN RELIEF
Knee sleeves add warmth and compression, aiding in pain relief by increasing blood flow + reducing swelling during and after your workouts allowing you to recover faster from your training.
Knee sleeves add stability to your lifts by creating kinetic awareness and limiting patellar movement. Sleeves provide your body awareness, cueing for your knees and neighboring parts of the body keeping you in a better position during a lift.
ADDS POUNDS TO YOUR LIFT
Maximize your training by adding knee sleeves to your leg day routine. The compression STrong knee sleeves provides allows you to stack weights and rebound harder out of the hole under maximal weights.
STRENGTH IS THE NAME, LONGEVITY IS THE GAME
Let’s face it, we all want to be as agile and active for as long as possible. Longevity is key. Adding compression and warmth to your knees helps take the stress away from the joints allowing you to provide more blood flow + recover faster, keeping you healthy + STrong.

What is the difference between the Extreme “X” Sleeve and the Grippy “X” Sleeve?
The Extreme “X” Sleeves are IPF approved and guaranteed to not surpass 7mm to meet most federation requirements. The Grippy “X” Sleeves are not IPF approved, are 6.5mm thick and have a silicon grip on the inside of the sleeves.
I am a size large in the STrong Knee Sleeves, does that mean I am a large in the Extreme “X” Sleeves?
We highly recommend you resize your knee cap and refer to the suggested size chart. The Extreme “X” Sleeves do not stretch and are different from the STrong Sleeves. Keep in mind, if you have larger calves we highly recommend you size up. These suckers do not give.
When should I use the Extreme “X” Sleeves?
The Extreme “X” Sleeves are designed for heavy lifting and competition. You would want to use these to hit your next PR.
How do I know what size I am?
You can find the size that’s right for you by measuring the circumference of the center of your knee cap at full extension in inches. Please refer to the suggested size chart for the Extreme “X” Sleeves for your recommended size. If you have larger calves – you will want to size up.
How do you wash these?
We recommend hand washing in cold water with mild detergent and air dry to complete. Do not put these sleeves in a washing or drying machine - this will void the warranty. Pro Tip - After use fold inside out and let them air dry to complete before your next use, try not to store them in your bag immediately.
Can I size down?
We do not recommend sizing down. The Extreme “X” Sleeves do not stretch.
How do these compare to the STrong Sleeve?
The main difference is the stiffness, as the Extreme “X” Sleeves do not have any stretch where the STrong Sleeves have a two way stretch. If you’re looking for stiff for a higher rebound in your heavy lift, the Extreme “X” Sleeves are the sleeves you want.
