For cool conditions.
Engineered for cool-weather rides and endurance activities, the 2XU Women's Elite MCS Thermal Compression 3/4 Tights provide thermal warmth and targeted compression. Because they're only 3/4-length tights, these work best with compression socks or leg warmers, allowing you to customize your warmth through wildly fluctuating temperatures and milder winter conditions.
Featuring 2XU's next-generation Muscle Containment Stamping (MCS) for targeted compression over key muscle, tendon, and fascia groups, these 3/4-length tights reduce muscle oscillation and damage. It's especially useful for athletes looking for explosive power and long-distance stamina, maximizing support for all-out bursts and long-duration efforts.
PWX Flex Thermal (70D) fabric adds warmth during freezing cold rides and workout sessions. The tights' high filament yarns promote moisture-wicking for a pleasantly dry feel when you're perspiring. Its flat waistband won't chafe or cut into your skin, while flatlock seams sit smoothly against your body to prevent irritation. Other key features include a UPF 50+ rating to ensure protection from harmful UV rays, as well as an antimicrobial treatment that resists odor-causing microbes.
- Q & A
Compressive but comfortable
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
- Fit: True to size
These pants offer a great blend of comfort with a touch of compression. They aren't as supportive as CW-X tights I've owned in the past, but they are far more comfortable to wear. However, they still feel like they are working to support muscles and joints. If you're not a fan of the stuffed sausage feel of serious compression tights, these are a good choice.
