ACTIVE TENSE COMPRESSION GEAR BY ERREA We’ve all been there. Despite a fencers best effort to follow their coaches orders to stretch and warm up properly; muscle injuries and strains are bound to happen. As fencers work their way up the competitive ladder, the more important these habits become to performance and well-being. Errea’s Active Tense compression gear with embedded kinesiology tape is popular in many sports and widely used around the world, to support correct movement and avoid injuries.

I use this Active Tense material in my day-to-day training and I have even started to wear it at major competitions; I love it. Once I put on the compressive material, I felt the immediate support that it offered me. Since this compression material has the kinesthetic tape sewn into the fabric, I did not have to worry about causing an injury with this material on. As I progress towards the end of a tournament, my muscles began to tire from the constant use and fatigue, but when I wear Active Tense, I am able to persevere through the entire tournament… The flexible material neither restricts any range of my movements nor suffocates me with its compressive properties, allowing me to be comfortable while on and off the strip. — Ariel Rauch, 2019 Junior Olympic Gold Medalist, Women’s Epee A FEW OF OUR CUSTOMERS WHO HAVE TRIED & TESTED ACTIVE TENSE FOR US Shelby Jensen Will Curtis Natalie Vie 17 US Paralympian & Gold Medalist University of Tennessee, Knoxville, USA Women’s Epee Fencing Team Head Coach
