Avoiding injury is vital to make it through triathlon season successfully. One way to help out your tired body is through veino-muscular compression technology - essentially a tight sleeve that increases efficient venous feedback from your feet to your heart, reducing the accumulation of toxins while increasing oxygenation to the muscles. This increased flow is said to improve lactic acid clearance, which helps you recover much more quickly and reduces muscle fatigue to help you train harder for longer. Equmen is especially great for this as their compression system reduces the shockwaves produced when your foot hits the ground.Jurica Cvjetko Triathlete Croatia, Europe

According to Equmen, what we really need are briefs that hold and lift our gluteal folds (buttocks, to you, sir) and cocoon our manhoods in a "power pouch" where they're kept safely out of the way while we throw javelins, run around race tracks and engage in other athletic pursuits. Which, let's face it, is much more than your typical jockstrap claims to do.
Perhaps it was just a matter of time before Equmen - which launched its range of posture-improving, gut-reducing, performance-enhancing long-sleeved Ts, vests and T-shirts last year - should bust out into super briefs. And with unique technology such as the seamless construction and moisture-wicking, breathable mesh fabric, these briefs are comfortable, neat and cool enough to wear under the closest-fitting wool trousers.
