About Skins - A Brand Born Out Of Ambition In 1996 a keen Aussie skier had a bold ambition – to develop a garment that would improve sports performance and aid recovery. Consulting with NASA scientists and other experts, it took five years of design, testing and finessing before the first pair of SKINS tights were launched in Australia in 2002. Word spread fast that SKINS help you perform better and recover faster. Pro athletes were the first to get into them and before long amateur athletes joined the party. The company has grown rapidly over the last decade, and continues to lead the innovation of the sports performance category it created, but our attitude has not changed a bit. SKINS’ mission is simple: to radically improve the world of sport. At SKINS, we produce a product that’s scientifically proven by numerous independent studies and we say it how it is. No hype required. Nowadays, SKINS’ global headquarters sit in Switzerland but our Aussie roots remain with a regional office in Sydney. Global growth has also seen regional offices open in the UK, USA, France and Germany and we have a distributor network that spans every major region around the globe.Check out skins.net for further information.
