2XU Run Cap
The 2XU Compression 3/4 Tights are super versatile. Lightweight, yet powerful and supportive of the upper leg muscles and coverage over the knee, they are perfect for both indoor and outdoor activities whether training or competing. Boasting benefits on par to 2XU's Compression Shorts but in a 3/4 style, these are an essential piece for any activity or exercise.
The 2XU Compression 3/4 Tights are super versatile. Lightweight, yet powerful and supportive of the upper leg muscles and coverage over the knee, they are perfect for both indoor and outdoor activities whether training or competing. Boasting benefits on par to 2XU’s Compression Shorts but in a 3/4 style, these are an essential piece for any activity or exercise. Engineered with powerful PWX FLEX fabric, 2XU 3/4 tights are versatile, breathable and lightweight, while also supporting upper leg muscles with coverage over the knee. Body firming and ideal for both low and high impact training, competition or recovery.
By using 2XU’s leading circular knit 50 denier fabric, this popular design also has the same features as the rest of the range with UPF50+ sun protection, high strength flat lock stitching, antibacterial qualities, enhanced durability and power.
HIGH GAUGE DENIER
2XU Compression features 50 denier LYCRA® fibre while our competitors use 30/40 denier. Denier represents the thickness of the yarn. A thicker yarn delivers a stronger compressive power.
2XU Compression garments are the only multipurpose compression garments constructed using a circular high gauge knit structure. This structure delivers an evenly distributed 360 degree stretch compression not achievable in garments with a traditional tricot knit.How should my 2XU Compression garments fit?
Your 2XU Compression garment should fit the body snugly and firmly without uncomfortably ‘cutting in’ to the body. If this is the case, you should review your size choice.
For upper body garments, a free range of movement in the shoulders is essential, as is comfort in the underarms.
For specific sizing, please refer to our size chart, taking into consideration that if you’re near the borderline for sizes or you wish to wear your compression garment primarily for recovery purposes, be sure to choose the smaller size where possible.
• 50 Denier Construction
• Circular Knit
• Anti Bacterial
• DVT protection on long flights.
• 24/7 Durability
Faster warm up and enhanced overall circulation. Graduated compression of the limbs actively encourages and increases venous return to the heart and lymph to the lymph nodes.
Deep Vein Thrombosis is a condition that mainly affects the lower body and is associated with long periods of travel or inactivity. 2XU Compression garments enhance blood flow in these areas through enhanced venous return, reducing the risk of DVT.
Therapeutic rated fabric provides greater pressure and recovery benefit by helping the pumping action of the cardiovascular system; removing blood lactate from exercising muscles leading to faster muscle repair.
2XU ANTI BACTERIAL
Embedded with an anti-bacterial, odour resistant application, 2XU Compression can help minimise odour and prevent bacterial growth.
During exercise, your muscles are exposed to forces that cause vibration. This major cause of muscle fatigue, known as muscle oscillation, can be reduced when wearing compression garments. This leads to improved muscle endurance, strength and power.
2XU SUN PROTECTION
UPF50+. Through the fabric composition of Nylon and Lycra, our compression garments offer increased protection from harmful UV rays.
Heightened proprioception increases senses and awareness for enhanced stability and agility. Proprioception can also help with improved technique as you remain aware of your body’s positioning, improving the balance control system and muscle coordination.
2XU MOISTURE MANAGEMENT
2XU Compression fabrics channel moisture away from the skin, keeping you dry and comfortable.
2XU Compression features muscle containment properties which reduce muscle damage. By reducing muscle damage during exercise and minimizing swelling post-exercise, 2XU Compression can significantly reduce the severity and duration of exercise induced muscle injury and soreness such as Delayed-Onset Muscle Soreness (DOMS).
In all 2XU Compression garments, reinforced flat lock stitching is used to combine strength with comfort. Use of flat lock stitching helps reduce chaffing and enables the garments to be used in a variety of sports and activities where comfort is essential.
2XU GRADUATED PRESSURE
2XU’s graduated compression technology delivers regulated pressure throughout our garments to deliver performance benefits during and post exercise. By enhancing circulation through increased venous function, more oxygenated blood is delivered to the muscles that need it most. At the same time, by-products created by exercise, such as lactic acid, are flushed from the muscles to reduce fatigue and decrease recovery time.
2XU MUSCLE STABILITY
During exercise, muscle vibration is a large contributor to muscle fatigue and damage. 2XU Compression stabilizes these muscles, enhancing power and reducing fatigue.
Using our exclusive high performance fabric, 2XU Compression garments are engineered to fit tight, whilst maintaining comfort and allowing free range of movement during exercise and long periods of wear.
Through heightened circulation, 2XU Compression regulates your body temperature in both hot and cold conditions. Using and enhancing your body’s natural cooling and heating mechanisms, 2XU Compression ensures you remain comfortable in a range of climates.
