CWX Expert Tight -
CW-X Men's Full-Length Conditioning Tights belong to a new class of high-performance equipment known as conditioning wear. This clothing is engineered to provide a host of benefits to your body, including key muscle group support, increased endurance, shorter recovery times after exercise, lactic acid buildup prevention, and precise knee joint alignment. Established in Japan in 1991, CW-X based its designs on the human body's unique motion during exercise. Perfect for running, cycling, climbing, and snowsports, Conditioning Tights work by combining two unique zones of stretch material. The body is constructed from a Coolmax and 4-way stretch Lycra blend, providing targeted muscle support and impressive moisture-wicking properties. The key to the Conditioning Tights, however, lies in the 2-way stretch Conditioning Web that encircles the knee joint and key muscle groups. While stretching longitudinally, this web holds muscles securely in place laterally, reducing vibration and increasing comfort. Flat seam stitching throughout ensures chafing is never a problem.

Lining and Layers:

  • Versatile performance for both outer wear and as a base layer


  • 80% Nylon / 20% LYCRA 2-way stretch Targeted Support Web


  • Key pocket and double-reinforced waistband with flat draw-chord


  • UPF 50+ for UVA/UVB protection
  • 80% COOLMAX / 20% LYCRA 4-way stretch body fabric: Helps to keep the body cool and dry, pulls moisture away from the body and carries it to the outside of the tight
You may not know everything about training, but in this sleek CW-X® tight, people will easily mistake you for an expert!
Coolmax® fabric moves perspiration away from the body and through the fabric for rapid evaporation and cooling.
UPF 40+ fabrication protects your skin during outdoor activity by blocking harmful Ultraviolet A and Ultraviolet B rays (UVA and UVB).
The Support Web™ provides targeted support to the lower back, core, knee joints and surrounding muscles for greater stability and power.
Double-reinforced waist with interior drawstring provides a secure fit.
Internal key pocket.
Flat seams reduce chafing and increase comfort.
Reflective logo to increase visibility in low light conditions.

CWX Expert Tight Reviews:


I have used these tights for alpine skiing and really can say they have made my legs fatigue a lot less. After a long run, top to bottom, my legs sometimes feel a little tired but never sore like they were before wearing the tights. I just don't get that burn from working the quads, calves, and hamstring after a long hard run.
I have heard of people wearing them after events to help recover and prevent lactic acid build up but I've never tried them after, only during...
They are also great if you get sore from standing on cold concrete for a lengthy time. I have worn them to watch many a winter little league game when it's cold on the bench but standing makes you sore, these tights really help.
They are not thermals so if you're in extreme cold, wear an extra layer. if you're warm like me, they do just fine! Be sure to use the tie at the top to keep them from sliding down as nobody likes that "plumber action" :-)
I have had 2 different sizes of tights and like the smaller size more. If you're in between sizes go smaller as they seem to provide even more support and relief when they're a little tighter.

On the 5th time wearing these tights as I was pulling them on, they tore through the material (not along the seem, but the material itself). I double checked that I had the right size for my height and weight (which I did) and I double checked that I was putting them on the way the instructions stated (which I was). I called Backcountry and they immediately sent out a replacement pair of tights. In the 4 times I had worn these tights before they ripped, I had done speed work and an 8-miler in 30-40 degree temps without any chaffing. They felt great. I look forward to testing this replacement set and am hoping that it was just an anomoly. In any case, I was extremely impressed with

Helped my knee!

I bought the Expert tights right before a skiing week at Jackson Hole-Grand Targhee. I have a frayed meniscus in my right knee and was just coming off a lower back muscle spasm. I am 57 and do not get to ski nearly as much as I used to. I wore the tights both for Alpine and X-Country. I skied all the trails for two full days (7 hours each day) and flat-tracked for 3.5 hours for two days. My knee never hurt. My lower back never hurt. These are great technical wear, especially for those of us that are boomers and have abused our bodies over the years. I will buy more of these tights, perhaps upgrading to the Pro or Stabilyx tights. I will recommend these to others.

One other interesting thing I noticed was that the weekend before Rotorua Marathon, I did some work at home and on the Monday had a sore kneecap when walking about during the day. When I went training with the tights on that night, there was no knee cap pain; I suspect the tight fit of the tights assisted the knee cap to remain inline when tracking over the knee while training.
Because of this I'm going to get my friend to try the tights as he has suffered some serious knee pain for the past 3 weeks which put him out of partaking in the Rotorua marathon.

I've run several 6-12 mile runs in these since I got them, and so far am definitely satisfied. Most of my runs have been in mid/high 30 degree tempature range. They allow a good amount of insulation, while still allowing wicking during my runs.I was a bit of a skeptic on the knee support of the fabric, but I have to say, it has been a comfortable improvement.

Style and Performance! I bought these tights for my boyfriend as a Xmas present, since I have a pair for myself which I adore. Needless to say, he LOVES them. We are nearing the end of marathon training, and he plans to wear them for the big day. On a side note: they look fantastic on his glutes. Thumbs up from this lucky lady!

new CW-X convert

These tights are well worth the investment! They are very comfortable and extremely nothing else I've ever worn before. They will improve your running performance. I'm a new CW-X convert! The only downside is that they are short and could use a few inches extra at the ankle area for taller folks. But other than that, they are hands-down the best!

These are super sweet underneath my Don Joy knee brace, i always have issues with my brace sliding down during a ski day, but with these honestly they helped so much. I am 5'9" and 145 pounds, and a small fit me very good, they are warm, and keep the warm in while skiing. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED for Knee support.

Great Product

Fits pretty well and is very comfortable. The knee support is noticeable but it's not a miracle worker: if you're knee's are injured (tendonitis, etc.) it might not help as much as you would hope for. However, it could definitely aid in preventing an injury if you've had problems with your knees in the past.
Great Product.

PR Tights!!!

I ran a 3 minute personal best 2:55:40 at Boston 2006 in my CW-X tights at age 43. Most serious runners still have an aversion to wearing tights in races. My previous personal best was at Chicago 2004, also wearing the same tights. I have not worn the tights in my 6 other slower, more painful Marathons.
