We often think of leg warmers simply as their name entails, but 2XU has improved the leg warmer to provide both a thermal barrier you want and the compression you need to aid in early muscle recovery while you ride. The Compression Leg Warmers use 2XU's graduated compression and PWX Power fabric to reduce muscle fatigue for better feeling muscles before you end your ride.
The graduated compression of the Leg Warmers is what sets them apart from their hum-drum Lycra counterparts. Though we believe in a time and place for the simplicity of plain Lycra, the compressive fit of the 2XU Leg Warmers puts the most compression at the ankles and gradually reduces towards the top of the legs. This helps increase blood flow to your muscles, and flush away by-products of exercise in your muscles, and decreasing recover time. The first thing you will notice when you put on the leg warmers is the lack of seams. Instead of using traditional or even flat-lock seams, the PWX Power fabric is woven in a circular construction, creating a single, contoured sleeve for each leg. Stretchy, elastomeric yarn is added to the compressive PWX Power material during the weaving process, so your movements aren't inhibited as you pedal. Moisture wicking fibers are also included to move moisture away from your skin, so you stay warm and dry.
The 2XU Compression Leg Warmers are finished with elastic grippers on the top and bottom hem and come in Black. They are available in six sizes, X-Small through XX-Large.
