Why is the CORETECH waistband higher than other compression leggings that I have tried before?

The CORETECH™ range of shorts and leggings have a high compression waistband and are the only shorts and leggings that can assist core stability and aid in the recovery and rehabilitation of hamstring, lower back and groin related injuries.

The CORETECH™ Shorts have been engineered to replicate the body’s own deep stability system by providing optimal placement of external compressive forces throughout the pelvis and core. Seamlessly knitted compression ensures a comfortable and versatile fit that can be worn in any situation under any uniform or training kit.

The CORETECH™ range is highly recommended for anyone who is susceptible to or recovering from a hamstring, lower back or groin related injury.

I have tried other compression leggings that have seams. Why don’t Supacore products have seams?

Supacore compression products are constructed using unique Seamless Technology, allowing specific compression to be engineered into the garment without the use of uncomfortable seams.

Seamless knitting is a more sustainable method of manufacturing as there is less energy consumption and less fabric wastage when compared to traditional methods of cut and sew garment production.

The benefits of seamless also include superior comfort and fit as well as the ability to achieve design techniques, yarn combinations and engineered compression/panelling not possible with regular cut and sew methods.

I am recovering from a lower back and hamstring injury. How can Supacore help me?

Supacore has proven positive impact on the prevention of and recovery from osteitis pubis and other core related issues.

Results of the CORETECH™ technology trials conducted via physiotherapists and strength and conditioning coaches over the past 8 years showed conclusively that athletes suffering from a combination of hip groin and hamstring injuries who were on average laid off the game for 6 months returned on average in 2 or 3 months.

How does Supacore assist in injury prevention?

Supacore has proven positive impact on the prevention of and recovery from osteitis pubis, hip, groin, hamstring and other core related issues.

The Supacore CORETECH™ range aids in injury prevention protocols in 3 ways

1. Providing extra lumbo-pelvic support decreasing the load during training activities due to the high waistband and targeted compression.

2. Gives added proprioceptive feedback during running which plays a major role in increasing player movement efficiency.

3. Speeds up the recovery process after exercise by stimulating blood circulation and reducing the effect of DOMS (Delayed Onset Muscle Soreness).
