Why 2XU Compression?

Improved Circulation

Faster warm up and enhanced overall circulation. Graduated compression of the limbs actively encourages and increases venous return to the heart and lymph nodes.

DVT Protection

Deep Vein Thrombosis is a condition that mainly affects the lower body and is typically associated with long periods of travel or inactivity. Compression garments can enhance blood flow in these areas through enhanced venous return, reducing the risk of DVT and swelling in the ankles and limbs.

Reduced Damage

Muscle containment is crucial to minimizing swelling post exercise and can significantly reduce severity and duration of muscle induced injury. Things like DOMS.

Increased Performance

When you train your muscles are exposed to vibration. This major cause of muscle fatigue, known as muscle oscillation can be reduced when wearing compression. This will result in improvement in muscle endurance, strength, power output and lower heart rate.

Heightened Agility

Applies pressure to the the skin surface to increase the body's awareness for improved posture, agility and stability (proprioception); this in-turn helps technique as an improved sense of the body's senses means improved balance, control, and coordination.

Increased Protection + Comfort

Proper compression fabrics wick moisture from the skin to keep the wearer dry and comfortable. Great ones embed antibacterial, odour resistant application to help minimize odour and prevent bacterial growth.

Faster Recovery

By offering graduated pressure they will improve the recovery cycle by aiding in the pumping action of the cardiovascular system; removing blood lactate from exercising muscles leading to reduced swelling, faster muscle repair and reduction in muscle soreness.

They feel amazing against your skin. 2XU does it the best.

Make any exercise, training, or regeneration feel the best it can.
