BODYSCIENCE Athlete Multihull Shorts have been Designed and made in Australia.
The BodyScience Multi Hull Short designed by the world's best paddlers!
BSC was approached by several Olympic kayakers to produce a compression ‘Boardie’ or board short type of garment to train & compete in. Their main request or specification was for increased comfort & protection of their backsides or bums.
Typically kayakers / paddler’s lower limb garments (shorts) are made from normal Lycra; sometimes because of the inherent rubbing & chaffing ‘the athletes’ wear their swimmers underneath for extra protection. This defeats the purpose but is currently the only option open to them as there is no other product in the market place that counteracts or solves their comfort / protection problems.
The advancement of the Multi-hull garment provides superior comfort for paddlers whilst still receiving the benefit of compression garments. The Development &insertion of a specialized shaped & sized Protective Gluteal Sheath into a compression garment provides the ultimate comfort whilst paddling. The 1mm sheath has a specific seamed panel positioning that is tailored towards the specific comfort of Kayakers / Canoeists / Paddlers
The Multi-hull garment has also specifically looked at lower body graduated compression for a sitting positioned athlete (normally a garment is designed for vertical plane performance), with this kayaker garment we had to make the adjustments & changes on a horizontal plane This has resulted in superior lower body graduated compression that provides extra comfort within the wet environment
The Water Sports Compression Garments are:
- The most innovative paddling garment because; blood pools to the lower legs when sitting in a boat / kayak and we’ve worked to develop ‘vessel graduated compression’ which would specifically aid venous return to the heart & improve performance within targeted muscle groups for these specific water sports activities.
- Extremely creative - with a compression garment that incorporates a 1mm Protective Gluteal Sheath
- Protective and Supportive: The product provides an internal Protective Gluteal Sheath panel within a targeted compression garment allowing increased comfort & protection without sacrificing performance.
- Technologically Advanced: This garment technology is new as Protective Gluteal Sheath specific compression garments have never been developed or utilised in the water sports arena for disciplines such as canoe and kayaking.
