2012 Triathlete Buyer’s Guide: Compression

2XU Refresh Compression Tights $160

Tights can’t compress if they don’t fit, so 2XU created the Refresh compression tights in an amazing array of sizes: eight for women and 10 for men. These are 2XU’s most compressive option, but they still breathe well and are comfortably flexible. They offer all the benefits of compression plus SPF 50+ sun protection and feature a hidden pocket in the front of the waistband for stashing keys and cash during a run. 2xu.com
