Have you ever heard of compression gear? Well, if you haven't, prepare for your life to be changed. Compression gear is intended to speed up recovery, reduce fatigue and long-term overuse injuries, and facilitate faster and more effective warm ups. There has been some conflicting research on compression gear, but it's definitely something I believe in and have found works really well for me.
2XU ("Two Times You") is a company that aims to give athletes the very best performance products. Their MCS compression run tights are one of the most wonderful piece of running gear I have ever owned. They fit like a glove, provide sweat and UV protection, and most importantly help keep my legs fresh. They're great for wearing during a run as well as after a run for recovery's sake. They also look pretty snazzy and go great with BibRave orange.
I cannot say enough good things about the functionality of these compression tights. They're wonderful for running in the fall weather and offer an extra layer of sun and rain protection. I also love their reflective "X" as I often run in the dark during this time of year and having reflective gear is a MUST.
Overall, I would HIGHLY recommend 2XU's compression tights and really any of their products. You can use the code "BIBRAVE20" to get 20% off your own 2XU product! You won't regret it.
