It’s much easier to get motivated when you have someone helping you. And it’s much easier to prepare, perform and recover with the support of 2XU Compression. With the right support behind you, we can all be better together.

Find the right compression for you.

Decades of research has found that true sports compression can reduce the risk of injury, improve performance and speed up recovery.

With premium, durable yarns to hold muscles in place, and a graduated profile to encourage blood flow to muscles, 2XU compression goes beyond your standard pair of tights. Find the perfect level of compression for you below.


Our Form compression capsule features mild graduated compression, perfect for training.

Crafted from a double knit ultra-fine yarn, the high tech fabric has a luxe matte finish, soft touch for all day wear, and will leave you feeling sculpted and smooth, ready for your next workout.

Compression Level: MILD


This is where it all started. Our pioneering Core, and more recently Aero, Motion and Ignition capsules feature moderate graduated compression, made for running or training.

Engineered in a circular knit construction from the highest quality yarns, the innovative fabric is extremely powerful, lightweight and flexible. It’s moisture wicking properties outlast the competition to keep you cool and dry from one session to the next.

Compression Level: MODERATE


Our market-leading Light Speed and Force capsules feature MCS (Muscle Containment Stamping) technology, which traces key muscle groups, adding that extra layer of support to our Core collection.

Developed with a detailed understanding of the impact running and high intensity training has on the legs, the firm support will further reduce muscle movement, damage and fatigue preparing you for your best workout yet.

Compression Level: FIRM


Recovery is training too, which is why we’ve created our extra firm range of compression. Featuring an over-foot stirrup and graduated stamping, the recovery collection boosts blood flow all the way from the ball of the foot, speeding up relief for the entire lower body.

Sit back, relax and recover.
