Protection where you really need it.
Injury due to muscle overuse is extremely common. While we often wear protective clothing, such as body armor and a helmet during athletic activities, we seldom protect our muscles and tendons during high-impact workouts. 2XU has been making compression clothing designed to protect against overuse for years. Its newest athletic tight, the Women’s Elite MCS Compression Tight, takes compression to the next level with its revolutionary Muscle Containment Stamping system, which targets specific, high-risk areas of your legs and protects them while increasing your overall power and performance.
The Women’s Elite MCS compression tight is made with Invista Lycra for exceptional fit, support, and recovery. High-filament yarns quickly pull moisture away from your skin and move it to the outside surface of the fabric. The anti-bacterial fabric helps to manage odors and provides UPF50+ sun protection. Flatlock seams throughout its construction eliminate chafing and irritation. A drawstring waist offers a secure, adjustable fit.
The big story here, however, is Muscle Containment Stamping. MCS specifically targets muscles, tendons, and fascia groups that are commonly damaged during high-impact workouts. This revolutionary fabric support system focuses greater compression power to wrap precise areas and reduce muscle oscillation and damage. You’ll find this targeted compression in both the quads and the calves. Front panels are built with 70D PWX fabric, while the rear panels use powerful 105d PWX fabric for added support for the hamstrings, glutes, and calves.
The results are dramatic. 2XU’s MCS compression system delivers greater power output, reduced long-term overuse injuries, faster warm-up time, and heightened proprioception (awareness of limb placement for agility).
- Q & A
LOVE me some MCS!!
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
- Fit: Runs small
- Size Bought: Medium
These tights are wonderful! Very compressive, so much so that I had to size up in order to get them to fit. I wear these on longer ski days and my legs feel so great after I'm done! They really do help with muscle fatigue! I recommend sizing up for sure, you wont regret grabbing a pair of these!
Got these for my wife. Failed.
- Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share
I got these for my wife. Seemed nice but on the third use the fabric failed. Obvious defect in workmanship. I have emailed 2XU three times from the warrant part of there website. NO RESPONSE. They do not appear to stand behind their product.
