Building on 2XU’s market leading Compression Tight, 2XU’s Elite Tights are for the athlete who wants even more. Combining a new generation 70 denier fabric with our existing high power 50 denier fabric, 2XU Elite Compression Tights offer superior compression to enable greater muscle stability and injury prevention. The new generation 70 denier fabric, with 15% more support and 25% more power than the 50 denier fabric, has been designed to support the calves and hamstring muscles - areas which are particularly prone to fatigue, injury and muscle soreness.
70D/CK 70 DENIER CIRCULAR KNIT FABRIC: Relentlessly scouring the globe for the finest high performance materials available, 2XU has formulated a 70 denier circular knit fabric which represents the international epitome in performance compression fabric. Delivering 15% more support and 25% more power than typical compression fabrics, this light weight fabric maintains pressure for longer to reduce fatigue time and time again.
50D/CK 50 DENIER CIRCULAR KNIT FABRIC: 50D/CK fabric is the standard fabric utilised throughout the entire 2XU Compression range*, although there is nothing standard about its quality. Through a combination of high gauge 50 denier elastomeric yarn and advanced circular knit technology, 2XU engineers have developed unparalleled compression garments. Optimal muscle containment, garment pressure and durability are consistently provided – all of which deliver maximum benefits to the wearer for longer.
CIRCULAR KNIT: 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.
ANTIBACTERIAL: Embedded with an antibacterial, odour resistant application, 2XU Compression can help minimise odour and prevent bacterial growth.
DVT PROTECTION: Deep Vein Thrombosis is a condition that mainly affects the lower body and is typically 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.
24:7 LYCRA FIBER DURABILITY: 2XU Compression delivers long life performance through the use of LYCRA® fiber from INVISTA. With high level elasticity, powerful LYCRA® fiber ensures compressive properties are maintained for the expected life of the garment.
MAXIMUM UPF RATING UPF 50+:Utilising a nylon/LYCRA® fabric matrix, 2XU Compression garments boast a UPF sun protection rating of 50+ to offer the wearer maximum protection during outdoor training and competition.
MOISTURE MANAGEMENT:2XU Compression fabrics channel moisture away from the skin, keeping you dry and comfortable.
