Q Will further colours be available?
A We would welcome any feedback you might have from customers on styles that could be popular. While this product was designed with weightlifters in mind, this new sleeve is ideal for powerlifters wanting a shorter sleeve, or who want a sleeve that is easier to put on, or who want a less supportive sleeve during lighter training sessions.
Q Can I use this for powerlifting?
A Yes, and these will be included in future limited edition releases.
Q How should you clean and care for the sleeves?
A We recommend hand washing the sleeves with water or a mild soap (or a specialist neoprene/wetsuit detergent), then allowing the sleeve to air dry standing up. The spin cycle of a washing machine can damage the sleeve, as it is quite bulky when wet, and can potentially get caught up or damaged by wringing. High heat from a washing machine or a dryer will degrade the rubber in the sleeves (potentially causing shrinkage or brittleness).
Q How should I fit the knee sleeve?
A We recommend fitting the weightlifting knee sleeves as you would with the original SBD knee sleeves, however customers looking to use the weightlifting knee sleeves are less likely to want to size down aggressively. The weightlifting knee sleeve will be easier to put on than the existing SBD knee sleeves.
Q What is the warranty on this product?
A We provide a 12 month warranty period against production defects on this product. Although we expect our products to last a significant amount of time, we would expect that in the rare event that a production defect is missed by our quality control, then it would be apparent to the customer within this period. Issues outside of this period are typically attributable to wear and tear.
Q Can the knee sleeve be damaged by knurling of the barbell?
A While the outer lining of the weightlifting sleeve has greater abrasion resistance, repeated abrasion from a knurled barbell will decrease the lifespan of the product.
Q What is the benefit of the anti-microbial lining?
A The lining, which presents a hostile environment for bacteria, will result in less build up of odour over time.
