With each passing year, the pounding your knees take from a long day of skiing grows. With the increased soreness and discomfort comes a longer recovery time to mend your aching muscles. Many dedicated downhillers will limit their diamond runs and moguls are way out of the question.
Why limit your fun on the mountain?
Opedix designs outdoor gear focused on limiting the wear and tear experienced by the human body. The Opedix S1 Ski & Board Tights are touted to reduce the damage done from outward knee movements and stress on the knee joint.
The S1 Ski & Board Tights are composed of spandex. Built into the tights are a supporting band that circles the knee cap and the back of the knee and the outer portion of your legs. It takes a short time to adjust the tights, so the supportive banding is hitting in all the right spots. The result is a snugly fitting base layer equipped with knee support.
After extended use, the S1 Ski & Board Tights did accomplish what they are advertised to do. First, the tights reduced the fatigue felt on the knees. This lead to better quality (and enjoyable) skiing even in the later part of the day. After the day, the pain and soreness was ultimately reduced. Instead of feeling weak the following day (the next few days as you advance in age), the soreness was still evident but not severely.
Opedix S1 Ski & Board Tights is offered in a full-length model which comes down to your ankles. Or in a Pro model which has a shorter length and stops at the top of your ski boot.
Either model will make your slope time more enjoyable along with reducing the time needed to recover after you click out of your binding and head off the mountain. Opedix offers the S1 in standard sizes (Small to X-Large). Opedix retails the S1 Ski & Board Tights for $190.
