    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    • Size Bought: Medium

    I was in the same boat as you. Scouring reviews to see if these really help/work. I am very skeptical at all the new fads that surface in the running community. These are a game changer! I paired these with new trainers and the best description for my legs after my runs is Minty Fresh! I was having issues with my left IT band and after running in these my legs feel like they're 16 again. On the longer runs they stretch out a bit and the knees slip lower on my legs but I have tiny chicken legs. I average 50 mile weeks and wear these on every run. Don't know how I made it this far without them. Well worth the price tag.

    Superior Tights

    This provides compression, support, and warmth/ breathability like I dreamed. I have been suffering from IT band issues and just recently started training for Triathlons and an upcoming marathon this spring and I knew I had to try something else. So I started foam rolling and using compression tights. The are phenomenal. I've worn a few and they're by far the best combination of comfort and effectiveness. They ain't cheap but neither is recovery time or injury. I love em, might buy a second pair soon enough. I am 6'1

    Love it

    The material weight is perfect for all year, fits snug in my legs and just right at the waist, I'm 68" 180 lbs I order a large.

    Worth every penny

    • Fit: True to size

    I bought these tights after developing serious IT Band problems in my left knee while training for a marathon this year, which forced me to take two weeks off and begin a physical therapy regimen. What sold me was the fact that the support bands around the back of the leg are positioned in the exact same way that my physical therapist taped my knee to help keep it properly aligned (with tape that was much stronger and longer lasting than KT Tape, which has never worked for me). After resuming my running in these tights I experienced no further problems on any of my long runs or in the marathon itself, and while they don't make you run faster, they are light and comfortable in all four seasons. Highly recommended.

    I Love the CW-X Revolution Tights

    • Fit: True to size

    I have been using these for at least 8 months now 3 days a week. In the cold from 50 -0 degrees they are fantastic! In the warmer weather they are a little warmer. I have run without them a time or two, but I can always feel the difference in my muscles and definitely in my knees. That's why no matter the temp I will be wearing them. They are very pricy I must admit. I actually got them when they were on sale. I don't wash them real often because they don't seem to hold odor much at all. When I do wash them I always hang them to dry. After all this time they still look great and will last me a good long while yet.

    No more pain

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: True to size

    This was my first time wearing CW-X tights. Let me say not even a month had gone by, and I was already ordering second pair. I had some pain starting in my knee plus recovering from a torn calf. I think the tights not only help aid in my recovery, but I don't get muscle fatigued as early as I use to. I will always wear them because it's like wearing protection gear.

    I'm a believer

    • Fit: True to size

    I had my doubts about running around in skin tight pants but after running 19 miles in them for Ragnar WBR I am a believer in compression tights. I had expected to be something of a cripple after finishing the race and was pleasantly surprised to find that I was very tired but not very sore at all. Not to mention they made my calves look great.

    CW-X Revolution tights

      I've been using these tights for the last 4 weeks.
      I LOVE THEM!
      Recovery period is definitely shorter and I feel less fatigued when I wear these to run.
      All of my knee pain has disappeared since using these tights, the support they give is fabulous.
      Possibly not the most inconspicuous pair of tights on the market, but HEY, these babies make me look like a Superhero on the run! LOL
      Could be a little cheaper, but I guess you get what you pay for.
      I shall be ordering a second pair in the very near future.
      PS I also wear the CW-X ventilator Tri top, that is also the bomb!

      tad too expensive

        Doubles as performance and recovery. Very breathable. Very tight and hard to put on.
        Great for support, but due to resistence of the material, requires strenous effort for the same performance.

        I am looking for a tight that gives the best support for my core.

        Hey There. For specific core support, the Stabilyx Tight is best. It has a lower back support panel along with a front lower ab support panel. This combination with hip support gives the best all around core support. Good luck!

        I just ran in the Stabilyx for the first time today and they were really great. The fit was just right and even though it was a short run, I could feel the support. I am just 5 months off of a calf and hamstring injury so the support was helpful.

        Will the revolution tights work well for...

        Will the revolution tights work well for skiing under ski pants also perhaps doubling as a layer?

        Best Answer

        Thanks for your question. The Revolution would be a great next to skin choice for a ski tight. I ski in the Stabilyx model, and have not gone back to anything else based on it's performance. One item to note is that the Revolution is not insulated. Keep that in mind as to how much you may need to layer on the bottom. I hope this is helpful for you.

        Why is the Revolution so much more than...

        Why is the Revolution so much more than the other CW-X tights?
        My wife and I are hiking into the Grand Canyon and back out with full packs and need the best CW-X product for the job. Our time to hike is mid-Feb, 2011, but thermal issues are not our 1st concern. Best support for 50-something thighs and knees, please!

        Best Answer

        Thanks for your question. The reason the Revolution tight from CWX is more than the other products they offer is the way the Revolution tight is built. The CWX support web in the Revolution is seemlessy built into the tight, while the web in the other tights is a sewn on panel construction. The Revolution is their top product for performance. If it is a bit too expensive for you, check out the Stabilyx family. There are both insulated and non insulated options there. The Stabilyx is also an outstanding product for muscle support and recovery. I hope this is helpful for you.

        I am torn between purchasing: CW-X Revolution,...

        I am torn between purchasing: CW-X Revolution, 2XU Elite Compression, or the Skins A400. I need a warm weather compression tight for multi-day racing.

        I have Skins, & good support, light weight, very thin. Had to return the revolution to another store I got them from, super tight left marks on my legs.. Skins are good fit. Both were med, I'm 32", 5'9, 170 with 22" thighs.

        CW-X revolution is good to cold weather?

        CW-X revolution is good to cold weather?

        Not specifically, In really cold weather, it could work as a layer. But It's actually 14% lighter than other tights. For cold weather, CW-X has their Insulator line, that may interest you more.

        Best Answer


        If you plan to use the Revolution tight as an external layer for Running in colder weather for example, they will be too cold. In terms of thermal properties, they are a little thinner and cooler than the Coolmax version of the tights. The CW-X Revolution Tight is perfect for early fall running where it's cold in the shadows but warm in the sun. For use below 40 degrees, I would recommend the Insulated line of CW-X tights. Or you can layer the Revolution tights under a pair of Wind blocking pants. That would still give you the support of the tight, but will protect you from colder weather.
