Whether you're looking for added muscle support and recovery aid after tough training sessions in the cooler months, or you're indulging in some cross training after a summer devoted to tempos, long days, and interval sets on the bike, the 2XU Compression Tight makes a smart winter training investment. The Compression Tight sets itself apart from 2XU's other muscle-squeezing offerings by featuring a slightly less aggressive feel, particularly around the hamstrings and calves, compared to the top-end Elite Compression Tight, but other than that, the Compression Tight is identical to its higher-end sibling.
Invista Lycra and PWX FLEX panels are responsible for the Compression Tight's supportive, contoured fit, and in addition to encouraging better circulation, the fabric's wick moisture efficiently as you sweat. Just like the Elite, the Compression Tights have flat lock stitching to prevent seams from irritating your skin, and a graduated fit at the calves to give you the perfect amount of compression without over-squeezing your legs as they taper down to the ankle. 2XU's circular knit provides compression in all directions of the fabric (not just in the up-and-down and side-to-side manner of most 4-way stretch fabrics), so with this tight, you stand to notice your muscles suffering less damage as they're better supported during intense training, as well as improved venous return for faster recovery times.
