Speed up muscle recovery.
Just as you'll down a glass of First Endurance Ultragen immediately after a hard ride to maximize your recovery, right after you shower you'll be laying the groundwork for soreness-free training tomorrow by slipping on the 2XU Women's Compression Tights. Some folks wear them for an hour or two. Others sleep all night in them. They enhance circulation in your legs to get more oxygenated blood into them and to more rapidly flush out lactic acid.
2XU doesn't put aside comfort and fit in the pursuit of performance. The Women's Compression Tights have flat lock stitching to prevent seams from abrading your skin, and the graduated fit at the calves give you the perfect amount of compression without over-squeezing your legs as they taper down to the ankle. The tall, soft waistband has enough tension to stay put without pinching your tummy.

- Q & A
Ahhh - compression!!
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
I already have the 3/4 length model of these, and decided to let my calves enjoy some compression love. I wore these after a tabata session, and the next time, during the tabata session. Very pleased with them!
They were compressive without cutting into my waist, and my muscles seemed to be happy. I enjoyed the "hug" on my legs, hips and butt. I was concerned about overheating, but worried for naught. Also, the construction in the crotch area, as with the 3/4 length tights, is thoughtful. No dromedary foot. Other manufacturers should take note (Nike, Salomon, to name a few).
They wash up great, and so far the reflective accents haven't started to peel off.
The one complaint I have is that they verge on being too short. If I was taller than 5'8", I'm not sure the length would be enough.
Overall very good. I'll buy another when I wear these out.
Great During Activity!

Since first discovering and experiencing the benefits of compression, I've been hooked! I use these Compression Tights for both running and boot camp classes as the graduated compression reduces my muscle fatigue and prolongs my endurance! My legs are incredibly less sore after my activities, since the lactic acid build up is decreased by the increased blood circulation... I'm a true Medium and these fit perfectly! Love them!
These tights look really good, but they don't offer much compression for me (and I have very muscular, sort of big legs) except in the waist. I am 36-29-37 and went with the medium. I had to clip the elastic in several places in the waist so that they would not be so uncomfortable. They're fine now, but cutting the waist was not something I wanted to do to something this expensive. They should have made these with a wide waist band, like Louis Garneau shorts/tights have. Also, the material is extremely thin.

Is there Ankle zippers on this paints ?
These tights are a post ride tights. You wear them after your ride to help with your circulation and recover better. So there is no pad since you do not ride in them.
Since they are compression they fit tight and so there are no zips so they fit tight.
