Skins(TM) USA Announces Canadian Distributor

    Skins(TM) Now Available North of the Border

    BOULDER, Colo., Oct. 6 /CNW/ -- Skins(TM), the global leader in the
development and manufacturing of engineered, gradient compression technology,
announced today its launch into the Canadian market through a partnership with
distributor Roblin Athletic Inc. Roblin Athletic will focus on the development
and growth of sales through specialty retail stores, Skins(TM) USA's current
distribution channel for their compression equipment.
    "After explosive US growth in a short period of time, we are very excited
to take Skins(TM) to the next level," says Jon Graff, Brand Manager for
Skins(TM) USA.  "With our advanced technology, there is a need for a high
level of specialized retailer education.  Roblin Athletic is committed to
retailer education, thus was the perfect choice for Canadian distribution."
    Well set up to support independent specialty retailers, Roblin Athletic
is an in-stock distributor, offering fast shipping and a service-focused
national sales team known for superior product knowledge.  The company will
introduce Skins to select run, cycle and ski specialty stores coast-to-coast
beginning November 1, 2008.
    Enthusiasm for Skins(TM) in Canada has grown tremendously as information
on BioAcceleration makes its way across the border.  Skins(TM) apply a unique
surface pressure formula over specific body parts, triggering an acceleration
of blood flow.  Accelerated blood flow equals increased oxygen to working
muscles, which enhances performance.  Improved circulation also helps the body
eliminate lactic acid, the culprit in delayed onset muscle soreness (DOMS),
and other metabolic wastes.
    The scientific evidence behind Skins(TM)' performance-enhancement claims
is vast, with independent testing and in-house research proving the benefits
of Skins(TM) for elite and amateur athletes alike.  Athletes can expect a
significant increase in circulation/venous return, extended time until
exhaustion, extra muscular endurance and a drastic reduction in post-exercise
recovery time, among other results.
