    Difficult to say definitively, as you never know how you'd have felt without them! I find they do help after a hard session though. Good for running too I find.

    i did 600kms last week , slept in my skins top and trousers after each ride – woke up fully recharged and ready to go. i honestly have never felt like that riding day after day after day…. that included 2 x 10 mile TTs – 250k flat out roadying and the rest were days in the hills !

    i reccomend at least trying them – but they may not work for you – i was warned of this before i tried them

    suggest trying the trousers first !

    Do they work (in terms of recovery)?

    was very sceptical when I bought a pair of skins,gotta eat my words,they are good at aiding recovery.

    Surely you could try wearing just one leg?

    Big convert to compression gear, also a triathlete and a sports scientist so that kinda biases me.

    Have used them over the past 4 years and even if its only a placebo effect i have found huge gains in my ability to do multi day hard sessions (100km+ on MTB or 700km+ weeks on the TT bike)

    Main gains i have found have been post runs and hard XC type sessions where you are going b*&^s out. whenever the muscles are taking a pounding they can help, along with some nice tasty protein (read steak/chicken not powder and water) and a good bit o'sleep.

    As for the sleeping in them, i do, am about to, and its not to bad if the other half does too. Works as a good contraceptive actually….

    I don't think you're supposed to put them on there.

    and quite right too, all that rumpy-pumpy saps the energy you need for bike riding…
