We know that your legs are the last holdout. Sure, you'll give in and cover up your arms and core with layers, but you want your legs to remain as free as possible until it's absolutely necessary to cover them up. We feel the same way, which is why we look for 2XU's 3/4 Thermal Compression Tights when the weather turns on us. They allow our lower legs to remain exposed, but firmly wrap our large upper leg muscles with compressive, thermal-lined materials. 2XU engineered the 3/4 Thermal Compression Tights with the same characteristics found in the rest of its active collection, but included a lightly brushed interior to take the chill out of your cool-weather workouts. This makes them the perfect choice for cycling, running, or as a winter sports base layer. Besides effectively keeping the elements at bay, the tights also provide exceptional muscle support, promote blood circulation, and aid in recovery using a blend of 2XU's innovative fabrics and structured compressive fit.
The tights incorporate what's known as 'graduated compression,' where the enacted pressure is regulated throughout the legs, slightly easing vertically along the waist area. 2XU designed the Thermal Compression Tights to have different strengths of compression in accordance to a position's distance from the heart, thus the term 'graduated.' What this means is that farther away from the heart, the stronger the fabric compression, and the closer to the heart, the lower the compression. Basically, this design places a pressure on the veins and arteries that forces the circulatory system to work faster. Accordingly, your muscles receive more oxygen, which means muscle fatigue is thoroughly reduced, while power outputs and thresholds are increased.
The fabric used to provide this graduated compression is 2XU's technical, high denier material known as PWX. Standing for Power, Weight, and Flexibility, this 50-denier PWX Flex fabric used to construct the bulk of the Thermal Compression Tights delivers the ideal balance of these characteristics. The brushed material features elastomeric yarns that are structured through a high-grade circular knit in order to provide 360 degrees of flexibility and encourage maximum blood flow return toward the heart. This fabric also provides ample stretch, strong wicking capabilities, heightened breathability, and, most importantly, effective compression.
Through this graduated compressive design, circulation is promoted by increasing the venous function (think blood veins). However, when your exercise is complete, the Thermal Compression Tights also aid in your recovery. Once again, the promotion of circulation is crucial. This not only reduces immediate fatigue, but it shortens the duration needed for recovery when worn during and after exercise. This means that you'll get the right amount of compression in the right location for a recovery that's specific to your type of workout.
The 2XU 3/4 Thermal Compression Tights are available in sizes Small to XX-Large and in the color Black/black.
The gradual compression of the 2XU Thermal Compression 3/4 Baselayer Tight offers powerful support for the leg muscles by increasing blood circulation. This improves recovery time and decreases muscle stiffness and fatigue, especially on multi-day trips. Made from 360° stretch fabric, this baselayer makes bending and moving easy and comfortable. The 2XU Compression Tight also has a brushed interior for extra warmth during cold weather activities.
