Record your personal bests in pencil
McDavid has been at the sharp end of sports medicine advancements, technology and thinking for 30+ years. Our focus remains intensely on how we can bring every advantage to any athlete via:
- Prevention - Provide preemptive protection to reduce the incidence of injury and rehabilitative protection to speed an athlete's return.
- Protection -Support an athlete's post-injury return to activity and enhance an athlete's performance both physically and mentally.
McDavid's SportMed™ products are often recommended by physicians and trainers to be worn while recovering from an injury. With varying levels of support and adjustability, McDavid products may shorten recovery time. Additionally, selected products may be worn to prevent injuries from occurring in the first place.
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.
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. McDavid's Hex technology has been copied and pirated around the world, but we remain the leaders, the innovators and the preferred choice. More professional and college athletes wear McDavid Hex than any other protective apparel. The Hex marks the spot for authenticity and performance.
When you perform, you want hydration in you, not on you. McDavid's 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 Session Compression is a good thing. McDavid's 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).
