When you're working to keep up a training plan through the winter, recovery matters just as much as it does in the summer. Instead of just relying on an ordinary baselayer when you're working out in the cold, using one with compression like the 2XU Men's Elite Compression Top can make a significant difference in how you feel after a hard effort.
Whether you're riding, running, Nordic skiing, or skiing in the cold, the Elite's targeted compression was arranged to support your biceps, triceps, pecs, and core as you work out. By stabilizing your muscles, the top limits fatiguing muscle oscillation, which can cause next-day soreness, keeping you feeling fresher after multiple workouts in a row. Additionally, the Elite comes with the other attributes of a cold-weather baselayer that make it a functional addition to your wardrobe, including a Lycra construction that maintains shape and wicks moisture continuously to regulate body temperature over the miles. Plus, it resists odor and comes with UPF 50+ to protect you from the sun (and allow you to get away with a few wears before you wash).
