2XU Compression Education
MORE THAN TWICE THE COMPRESSION POWER OF OTHER BRANDS 2
*BASED ON AVERAGE NEWTONS MEASURED
FOR 8 COMPETITOR COMPRESSION BRANDS
Scientifically engineered to be the world's lightest, most powerful & most flexible compression
#1 IN POWER BALANCE AND RESIDUAL STRETCH 1

Delivers lower markers of BLOOD CLOTTING in a marathon 7
REDUCES HEART RATE BY UP To 2.5%
FOR EXERCISE BOUTS LASTING UP TO 15 MINS 5
Speeds up Recovery
4.8% INCREASE IN BLOOD LACTATE REMOVAL
in a 60 minute recovery period 9
ReduceD swelling to the thigh by 1.1cm and to the calf by 0.6cm
based on girth measurement when worn in a 60 MINUTE recovery period 10
power improvements of up to 2%
when worn for recovery between repeat bouts of exercise 6
1 Power balance: The smaller difference in weft and warp values is better for consistent compression power and flexibility in all directions. Less differentiation between weft and warp equals balanced power. We have adapted CK machines and stretched the application of these machines to create our fabrics - other brands have tried to copy but have been unsuccessful.
2 Compression power: The more force needed to stretch the fabric means the greater compression power the fabric exerts for muscle stabilisation and protection. This test stretches 50 x 100 mm fabric samples along the weft direction of the knit. It is stretched to 170mm in length (ie: 170% of its original length), and the required force is measured by the Instron machine.
