New IPF-approved from January 2023
Next Generation Knee Sleeve.
1 Outstanding rebound with next generation fabrics
Knee sleeve rebound occurs when the back fabrics are crushed against each other in the bottom position of a squat.
If the fabrics are not stiff enough at this time, they will not be able to withstand the weight of the squat and rebound will not be obtained. This is the reason why knee sleeves used in powerlifting are stiffer than commercial knee supports.
The ONI Knee Sleeve PRO fabric focuses on this mechanism and uses the stiffest fabric approved within the current IPF rules for the rear of the product, providing exceptional rebound in the bottom position of the squat that surpasses existing powerlifting knee sleeves. The advent of this fabric represents a generational shift in knee sleeves in powerlifting.
2 Strong lateral support
The stretchy fabric on the front side and the two lines reinforced by adhesive stitching provide unprecedented strong lateral support to the knee area.
Competitors with a medium or wide stance will especially benefit from this.
3 Lean size construction
Under the supervision of Wataru Kobayakawa, a 13-time winner of the All Japan Powerlifting Championships and a legend in the Japanese powerlifting world, and with the cooperation of leading athletes who have tried this product, ONI have conducted extensive testing to a size structure that allows the direct transmission of power.
The sizes shown below are approximate. Buyer beware, these do fit tight and they will take some time to get on and off. There are lots of videos on Youtube with recommendations on how to get tight knee sleeves on and off. We recommend erring to a larger size.
GUIDELINE BY WEIGHT CLASS
S: up to 66kg class
