Gear Talk: CEP Compression Socks

The above video shows you how to put these fine socks on.

At Triathlon LAB, we are fans of compression. We use them to accelerate recovery, prevent fatigue during long rides and runs, and minimize soreness during and after workouts and races.

One of our favorite compression products is CEP socks. Besides offering a variety of colors–black, white, lime green, and fluorescent pink–they are one of few manufacturers of compression socks that are designed for runners and triathletes, have variant compression, and are medical grade.

What does that mean?

  • Running & triathlon specific – They have ventilation channels to keep your feet cool and dry, and padded soles for extra cushioning and prevent chafing.
  • Variant compression – They provide extra achilles tendon support to prevent achilles fatigue, scientifically optimized pressure flow to provide muscles with maximum amount of oxygen, compression pressure begins at 22-24 mmHg at the foot and ankle and decreases to 18 mmHg at the opening of the sock to optimize circulation.
  • Medical grade compression – CEP, made by MediUSA, has more than 50 years of experience developing medical compression products, and utilizes graduated compression technology to prevent blood clotting and swelling during travel.
