7MM Powerlifting Knee Sleeves

These is our most supportive 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.

The 7mm powerlifting knee sleeve has been designed for competitive use and maximal attempts in training, providing compression throughout the heaviest repetitions.

Due to its maximal compression, the 7mm Powerlifting Knee Sleeves is a tight-fitting sleeve. Thanks to heavyweight lining, edging and seams designed to hold up to even the most aggressive fitting.

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 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.
