Who can benefit from our products?

It won’t surprise you to hear that we would say that anyone can benefit from our products. But over the past few years, we have seen that our customer base really is very diverse: from endurance athletes to people seeking out compression socks for a hospital stay. Some people even sleep in our base layers!


People are always asking, what it is that sets our garments apart. So we thought it might be an idea to explain exactly what it is that we sell, and how they can be a great addition to the wardrobes of a huge range of people.


We’ll start by highlighting exactly what it is that you can buy through AG Sports. We specialise in activewear - especially base layers and compression gear. We are official suppliers of Carbon Energized products, an Italian brand which uses the most advanced technology in the world to make activewear that is unparalleled in terms of its comfort and its performance-enhancing abilities. Through AG Sports, you can buy Carbon Energized base layers - trousers, vests and shirts, amongst others - and compression socks and sleeves. We also sell accessories including gloves, foulards and layers designed specifically to be worn under cycling helmets. Take a look at our website to see the full range of products available.


Who uses Carbon Energized Products?

The truth is, anyone and everyone. Obviously, a lot of our customers are really into their sports and outdoor pursuits. We are privileged to count marathon-runners, Iron Man competitors and ultra-runners amongst our clientele, and they come to us because of the quality of our activewear. We have a number of products especially suited to cyclists, such as our vests and shirts which are available with short or long sleeves (or, indeed, no sleeves at all) as well as under helmet base layers, gloves and foulards. As anyone who participates in a lot of sport will know, moisture-wicking is crucial in order to perform at your best. By reducing and maintaining your body temperature, most people experience a reduced heart rate and easier breathing. Basically, fabric with decent moisture-wicking properties allows you to feel comfortable: and when we feel good, we perform well.


What is Carbon Energized Activewear made from?

Carbon Energized products take base layers to a whole new level. Made from 85% polypropylene dryarn®, 10% elastalan and 5% Carbon Energized fabric, their base layers are worn directly against the skin, keeping body temperature up to 3 times lower than polyester base layers. They absorb sweat and moisture, moving it away from your skin and to the outside of the garment, where it evaporates quickly. No more cold, soggy sportswear, which gives you a chill or chafes uncomfortably. Carbon Energized garments are breathable, lightweight, and our customers tell us they forget they are even wearing them. So they can just focus on the physical challenge ahead of them!


Is Carbon Energized activewear only for Athletes? 

It’s not just cyclists and athletes who love our products. Our compression gear has really taken off with a range of people, particularly with those who spend a lot of time on their feet (nurses, doctors, teachers, dancers, construction workers - the list goes on!), or, conversely, those who spend a lot of time sitting down (drivers, office workers, people who do a lot of long-haul travelling and people who have a hospital stay ahead of them). Our anti-stress compression socks and sleeves are hypoallergenic and medically approved by the Red Cross, as they promote better blood flow and lymphatic circulation, thereby reducing swelling and making you more comfortable.


So there you have it: a quick guide to what we sell and who can benefit from it. Basically, our products are a superb option for anyone, whether you’re massively into your sports or spend most of your time behind a desk.
