The name of the company is 2XU, out of Australia, and it promises that its apparel will provide “increased venous function,” “more oxygenated blood delivered to the muscles,” and “lactic acid flushed from the muscles.” That’s a tall order for a pair of tight pants. Yet we hear many 2XU users rave about increased endurance in long workouts and races, as well as faster recovery. The $139.95 Elite Compression model features antibacterial and moisture wicking fabric, as well as flat-seam construction for increased comfort.
