These Piston 200 Compression women's tights are part of the company's Race + Recovery collection. The benefits of compression technology are equal for runners and cyclists and include muscle stability, improved efficiency of movement, improved circulation, and improved recovery. The high-stretch, tight-knit fabric is made on an extremely fine 36-gauge machine--yielding a lightweight yet exceptionally strong and durable compression. Highlights include flat-lock seams and a lined crotch gusset for added comfort, along with an elastic waist with a pre-laced stretch drawstring. The tights are articulated for increased movement and designed to resist odors.
