Men's CW-X PerformX Tight :: The PerformX Tights keep everything in correct alignment for optimum balance, efficiency and power by providing support for the IT band, hip flexors and quads as well as good stabilization of the knees, calfs and achilles. The patented CW-X Support Web™ acts as a suspension system for the quadriceps, increasing power at the push phase of the running motion. The gentle targeted compression of the CW-X Support Web™ increases circulation, minimizing lactic acid buildup and reducing muscle soreness, making PerformX Tights ideal recovery wear.

Features & Benefits:
CW-X Support Web™
Anatomically designed for endurance activities
Support and stabilize the major muscles and joints
As an older runner with some history of knee and hip pain, I bought the CW-X PerformX Fitted Tights to try to avoid injury during marathon training. The first thing I noticed was that the fit charts directed me to a size smaller than I usually wear which made me wonder a little. After my first long run, a 16 miler, I did notice better support for my knees that generally feel a little tight off-and-on throughout my runs. On the other hand there was a general resistance in the tights that made it seem as though I was working harder to overcome. I don't think I'll wear them for racing but they do seem to give some extra support to my aging knees.
Great for IT Band
I run about 10 miles a week (two five mile runs). I have had issues with my IT band even after getting proper shoes. I often had soreness in my knee area the day after a run. These pants totally changed that. Even during the run my legs are noticeably less sore, and next day I don't have any soreness. I run in 30 degree weather without additional layer on my legs.
I like the compression fit these Tights provide. The support in the hamstring area could be a little tighter, but overall they work as advertised. I have now ordered a pair of 2XU tights (I have three pair of their short tights) and will be able to do a better comparison when I receive the new tights
