Sharkskin R-Series Longsleeve top is designed to increase circulation and blood flow with full-torso, arm and shoulder compression to help promote muscle efficiency and minimise muscle fatigue. Form-fitting, shape-stretch design for superior muscle support and stability with extra underarm and lower back panel mesh ventilation panels for breathability where needed. Inbuilt posture correction straps to help maintain posture for better performance and recovery. Non-stitch fused seams in the wrists to avoid fraying and provide a firmer fit for comfort.
Great compression longsleeve top for all paddle and board watersports, multisport, adventure sport, obstacle course racing or just kicking back and recovering from a hard workout on the water.
Can also be used under other Sharkskin garments to combine the extra warmth and insulation with the extra performance boost from R-Series compression.
About R-Series Compression
Sharkskin R-Series Compression is a powerful yet lightweight and breathable ‘Compression’ range that also includes Titanium Far-Infrared (TiFIR) technology for an extra boost in warmth and performance.
Sharkskin R-Series Compression increases blood circulation and provides extra support and efficiency to muscles. It also has the unique addition of Liquid Titanium technology. This innovation is a result of titanium nanoparticles being permanently infused into the fabric’s thread to produce ‘far-infrared’ (FIR) radiation from the athletes own body heat. The result is a ‘double-up’ of benefits to provide compression plus FIR radiation, for an extra boost in performance and an increase in muscle recovery far beyond what normal compression garments can offer.
R-Series Compression is ideal for training, competing and recovering from your favourite active watersports where improved performance is the goal. You can wear R-Series Compression by itself in warm air and water temperatures or ‘layered’ under other Sharkskin garments to combine extra warmth and insulation with the benefits of R-Series Compression.
R-Series Compression is typically used for active paddle watersports, board watersports, sailing and many other watersports where your muscles get a hard workout while out on the water.

Sharkskin R-Series Long Sleeve - Mens
Sharkskin is a technical apparel range that includes a unique performance compression range suited to the harshest of environments – on land and in the water.
The Sharkskin R-Series Compression range not only uses ‘form fitting’ design to help increase blood circulation and provide extra support and efficiency to muscles but has the unique addition of Liquid Titanium technology. This innovation is a result of titanium nano-particles being permanently infused into the fabric’s actual thread. The technology creates the ability to produce ‘far-infrared’ (FIR) radiation from the athletes own body heat. The result is a ‘double-up’ of benefits – compression plus FIR radiation, for an extra boost in performance and an increase in muscle recovery far beyond what normal compression garments can offer.
The Sharkskin R-Series Compression range’s design and fit has evolved with the assistance of the Cronulla Sharks NRL team, Sharkskin ambassadors (all leaders in their respective fields), and one of the most extreme athletes in the world – Damien Rider.
Sharkskin R-Series Compression wear is one of the most comfortable, quick drying, robust and performance enhancing compression ranges available on the market. It is suitable for a wide range of uses including hard paddling and gym sessions, underneath a wetsuit for performance and added warmth, or for the rigours of Obstacle Course Racing (OCR) and other extreme fitness activities.
Take your performance to the next level with the world’s most advanced compression wear.
