TECHNICAL DIFFERENCES FROM THE ORIGINAL 7MM KNEE SLEEVES
Can I use this for powerlifting?
While this product was designed with weightlifters in mind, this newsleeve is ideal for powerlifters wanting a shorter sleeve, or who wanta sleeve that is easier to put on, or who want a less supportive sleeveduring lighter training sessions.
What is the warranty on this product?
We provide a 12 month warranty period against production defectson this product. Although we expect our products to last a significantamount of time, we would expect that in the rare event that aproduction defect is missed by our quality control, then it would beapparent to the customer within this period. Issues outside of thisperiod are typically attributable to wear and tear.
How should you clean and care for the sleeves?
We recommend hand washing the sleeves with water or a mild soap(or a specialist neoprene/wetsuit detergent), then allowing the sleeveto air dry standing up. The spin cycle of a washing machine can damage the sleeve, as it is quite bulky when wet, and can potentiallyget caught up or damaged by wringing. High heat from a washing machine or a dryer will degrade the rubber in the sleeves (potentiallycausing shrinkage or brittleness).
How should I fit the knee sleeve?
We recommend fitting the weightlifting knee sleeves as you would with the original SBD knee sleeves, however customers looking touse the weightlifting knee sleeves are less likely to want to size down aggressively. The weightlifting knee sleeve will be easier to put on than the existing SBD knee sleeves.
What is the benefit of the anti-microbial lining?
The lining, which presents a hostile environment for bacteria,will result in less build up of odour over time.
Will further colours be available?*
Yes, and these will be included in future limited edition releases.We would welcome any feedback you might have from customers onstyles that could be popular.
Can the knee sleeve be damaged by knurling of the barbell?
While the outer lining of the weightlifting sleeve has greater abrasionresistance, repeated abrasion from a knurled barbell will decreasethe lifespan of the product
