Tifosi Sports was appointed as the official distributor of COMPRESSPORT® products for the South African market in 2014.
From the outset, it became apparent that both Tifosi and COMPRESSPORT share common attributes within their cultures and products – that being PASSION for everything we do and COMMITMENT to our customers – “we will always provide quality products and back our products with exceptional after sales service.”
COMPRESSPORT was founded and remains a European company with all its products being both fully designed and manufactured only in Europe. COMPRESSPORT® products are distributed globally and have been tested and trusted by both professional and social sports people in both extreme sports and less enduring running, cycling and other events in South Africa and around the world. Our list of customers grows monthly and many athletes continue to show trust in our products, be it our range of head visors or our performance enhancing compression socks and calf sleeves.
COMPRESSPORT® products come with extensive medical research backing and the business remains a specialist in sports compression. As part of the design and development process of each product, every aspect is researched and examined in detail. This includes the collaboration of doctors, athletes and manufacturers specialising in medical compression. Research and development includes the study of the morphology of athletes, the testing of various yarns and fabrics, as well as the focus on constantly improving the seamless constructions – thereby improving the compression capabilities and maximising the efficiency and lifespan of the products. The use of the Salzmann test apparatus (internationally recognized as the unit leader and technically the most accurate for measuring compression) ensures that the best standards are used and that COMPRESSPORT deliver on their promise.
COMPRESSPORT® products comply with the Oeko-Tex® Standard 100. This is an independent control on harmful textile substances to make sure that the products do not pose any health risk to humans.
Professional cycling teams that use COMPRESSPORT® past and present include:
- Etixx-Quick Step (EQS, Belgium)
