CW-X Men's Conditioning Shorts belong to a new class of high-performance equipment known as conditioning wear—clothing engineered to provide a host of benefits to your body, including key muscle group support, increased endurance, shorter recovery times after exercise, and lactic acid buildup prevention. Don't confuse them with technically simple compression shorts. Established in Japan in 1991, CW-X based its designs on the human body's unique motion during exercise. Perfect for running, cycling, and climbing, Conditioning Shorts 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 Shorts, however, lies in the 2-way stretch Conditioning Web that encircles your leg's 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.
You may not know everything about training, but in this sleek CW-X® short, 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 logos increase visibility in low-light conditions.
Machine wash warm, line dry in shade.

Positive Reviews:

I had been wearing Nike and Under Armour compression shorts but the compression that those offer is not much more than what tight underwear would provide.
I contacted CW-x directly for advice on a short to help support my IT band while running. They recommended these shorts. I gave them a try and have been very happy. I have had no instances of soreness or pain in my IT band since I have been wearing these. Size was right on, I followed the online size chart. I am going to order a second pair just to help reduce my laundering frequency.
If you got IT Band issues you may want to try these out and see if they help. They certainly helped me.

I wear them under shorts in mild/cool weather. In cold temperatures I wear the full length. Just the right amount of compression to keep the muscles warm and in place. I also think they help with my IT band issues. I would recommend them. Please note though, this is the only brand of tights I have tried. I recently ran my first marathon with the full length on and my legs felt great.

I was loooking for pilates workout shorts for guys that were not bicycle shorts with the pad. Iactually first saw compression shorts in Australia and though they would work. Well these shorts work perfectly for pilates and yoga. They feel good and hopefully they will last a reasonable time. I have only been using them for about a month, maybe 15 wearings and everything is fine.

While I do believe that these shorts are better than other lycra/compression type shorts, they do not seem to give me the extra muscle support that the full- or 3/4-length CW-X's do, making them an overpriced item IMHO. I like them, they feel great, but I don't think they are necessarily worth the $$.

I have tried other compression shorts before and they compress the entire thigh and hamstring area. These compress certain muscle groups. They are awesome in that they have increased my endurance and lessened my recovery time. I use them for running, hiking, tennis, and working out. They feel great and work. I love them.

I needed some extra support after experiencing hip flexor and IT band issues. Sports doctor recommended compression shorts during the recovery process. I did some research found these and could not be happier. I will continue to wear these shorts to prevent another injury. Well made and comfortable as well.

The Conditioning Tight Shorts are the best workout short I've ever worn. I've been a Personal Trainer for over ten years. The fabric dries quickly and they're comfortable to wear. I've been recommending these shorts to my clients. I plan on buying more.

Exactly what I wanted... This short is not only perfect - it is exactly what the description said it would be. It is a very high quality product and I am very happy with it.

Only compression brand that I look for. Feels comfortable and snug. I like the draw string. Keeps it from falling.
Contact the Customer Service Rep. to ensure the proper size. They were very helpful too.

While you don't get as much support as with the CW-X tights, these are very good for just shorts. Excellent wicking. Older pairs showed excellent durability, although crotch seams show be better reinforced.

Negative Reviews:

I wasn't that impressed with the shorts. They weren't long enough and came to just slightly below mid-thigh on me. After 5 minutes of running, they had bunched up above the thigh, forcing me to stop to re-adjust them. I'm an avid cyclist so my leg muscles tend to be more developed than my pedal-deficient friends. I suspect the CWX 3/4 length tights will be a better fit for my legs. I stopped using and returned them so couldn't comment on any long term results.

This short does not provide noticeable support above other less expensive stretch shorts. I believe the full-length CW-X may provide the value marketed.
For $59, I would have expected a whole lot more.
As always, great service and delivery from

Neutral Reviews:

These shorts were not as supportive as some others that I have but they were comfortable. I just don't think the level of performance is on par with the price.
