Knee Sleeves Selection Guide

7MM Powerlifting Knee Sleeves

These is our latest release and it is the most supportive among the variants. It is 7mm in thickness and 30cm in length, in compliant with IPF and IWF maximum allowable lengths.

The SBD 7mm Powerlifting Knee Sleeves are made with a much higher density neoprene than our original 7mm Knee Sleeves and offer not only enhanced compression, but maximal surface contact, as the sleeve moulds to the joint all the way through the range of motion. Maintaining compression, and avoiding gapping during flexion means that the knee joint is supported, consistently, all the way through the lift, helping the lifter maintain form, bar speed, and a natural squat path as they approach maximal attempts.

This new 7mm powerlifting knee sleeve has been designed for competitive powerlifters that need the maximum possible support from their sleeves.

The exterior comes with an abrasion resistant outer lining to ensure which ensures durability.

This variant would be harder to wear as compared to the original 7mm knee sleeves thus it is recommended to wear a knee length sock if you're facing trouble getting it pass your calves. Do refer to this guide on how to wear it.
