We are passionate about innovation. At McDavid, inspiration feeds innovation and good is never good enough. We have the momentum of 30+ years and all eyes on the future. Innovation and its daughter technology are embedded in our DNA.
McDavid elevates elastic to an advanced degree of education. Run-of-the-mill elastic is limited in its ability to support athletic movement, while McDavid Engineered Elastic excels where mere elastic struggles to hold it together. Engineered Elastic maintains its shape and form with refined tension and rebound properties. Rather than simply stretching all over like regular elastic, Engineered Elastic has a targeted and purposeful pattern area for advanced support.
McDavid is doubling down, multiplying our thinking and doing more with proven compression technology. Our new Dual Compression™ technology supports athletes with refined and applied kinesiology science in an easy-on easy-off sleeve. Compression material is integrated with compressive support tape and focused on specific joints and their related ligaments, tendons and muscles. Dual Compression mimics the basic function of kinesiology tape in a simplified slip-on version.
This is a new level of extreme protection on the hard surfaces of sport and on you. TEFLX™ features a uniquely designed, ultra-durable resistance property ideally developed for the most unforgiving surfaces. Wherever body parts are making contact with courts and hard surfaces, TEFLX protects player and protects itself with its highly durable properties.
Made of polytetrafluoroethylene (aka, PTFE, aka, Action Hero Science), TEFLX ultra toughness is formulated into our industry-leading 9mm Hex padding—an existing and proven technology refined by the minds of McDavid into a sports-specific innovation. TEFLX resists burning, shearing and sticking on hard surfaces, while offering superior protection to your human surfaces. TEFLX leg sleeves and elbow/knee/shin pads are especially awesome for the frequent hit-the-deck nature of youth sports—protecting the kids and the cash flow.
Kinesiology is the study of the mechanics of physical movement. McDavid Kinesiology Tech is our unique, pre-engineered, color-coded Kinesiology applications for issues of the knee, lower leg and ankle. Kinesiology taping is recognized internationally for facilitating pain relief, enhancing the healing process of the body’s lymphatic system and managing joint instability.
We’ve refined the science and simplified the process with clearly defined and designed steps, concise instructions and helpful video support. In addition, we also offer our Kinesiology Tape in highly versatile pre-cut strips and rolls.
TAPE. UP. to a brand new level with McDavid Kinesiology Tech.
Protective apparel began with McDavid (okay, suits of armor came first, but nobody does a 4.3 second 40 in an armored suit). It started here and here it remains the industry standard.
Hex™ Technology is superior, closed cell foam padding, uniquely and permanently bonded to our high quality hDc™ moisture management fabric. This gives every athlete, in any contact or collision sport, the remarkable advantages of protection, durability and confidence. Our Hex Technology has been copied and pirated around the world, but we remain the leaders, the innovators and the preferred choice. Countless professional and amateur athletes choose to wear McDavid Hex Technology. The Hex marks the spot for authenticity and performance.
When you perform, you want hydration in you, not on you. Our hDc Technology™ is a super smart, moisture-wicking fabric that breathes easily and often. hDc draws sweat away from your skin and breaks it down for quick evaporation. This works equally well when performing in hot environments—you remain cool, while in cold conditions—you remain warmer. Stay calm and cool (or warm) in your collection of McDavid hDc.
Compression is a good thing. Our compression apparel makes major muscles warm and happy, reducing fatigue and cramping. Compression decreases loss of energy from excessive motion and vibration. A compression fit also reduces chafing, abrasion and skin irritation. Ultimately, McDavid Compression apparel enhances performance (we probably should have put that first).
Ready, aim, fire up your muscles and performance. Once again, another shining “TM” indicates McDavid’s technological supremacy. Targeted Compression™ is everything you love about intelligent compression—increased blood flow, muscle stability and rapid recovery—focused on a specific area. All the benefits of compression are trained and targeted where needed the most. McDavid Targets your very best performance.
McDavid Cross Compression™ technology addresses the common and nagging injuries to the hamstring, glute and quad muscle groups. By utilizing a breathable, high-tenacity technical fabric and mimicking the tapping techniques of athletic trainers, McDavid offers a unique advantage. Our 8200 Cross Compression short employs stabilizing compression, while the banding pattern mimics the hip spica wrap used to treat groin pulls, hip abductor and flexor strains. Our 8300 short specifically targets hamstrings, quadriceps and glutes. These compression techniques help prevent and aid in the recovery of large muscle injuries. In addition, compression has the overall benefit of increasing blood flow, reducing vibration and encouraging faster recovery. Cross over to greatness with McDavid.
