Knit structure is but one contributing factor to the quality of a compression garment. Other elements such as the type of yarn and the yarn density affect the quality of one fabric against another.
2XU PWX garments are constructed using a circular high gauge knit structure. This delivers an evenly distributed 360 degree stretch compression and superior fabric return, unachievable in garments with tricot knit.
2XU Compression delivers long life performance through the use of the highest grade elastomeric yarns with Invista LYCRA® which is vital to achieving a high level of elasticity and compressive properties over the life of the garment.
All 2XU products use powerful performance fabrics with high gauge denier ratings.
Independent testing by experts at RMIT University has found 2XU PWX Compression fabrics produce a lighter but more powerful and enduring result than competing compression brands.
