Zone3 compression tights
The Zone3 compression tights have been under development for the last four years and regular testing and feedback sessions have enabled us to release what we think are some of the most comfortable and effective tights on the market.
What makes this product stand out:
- Validated graduated compression to increase blood circulation and improve recovery.
- Carefully constructed hip & knee panels to provide optimum muscle support.
- PU tape support on soleus calf muscle to reduce muscle vibrations.
- Bonded ankle hem making the tights easier to get on and for improved comfort.
- 360o reflective logos for visibility in low light conditions.
- Carefully designed to offer coverage and confidence.
They not only offer validated graduated compression, but are also designed to carefully support the muscles and make you feel and perform your best during exercise. A combination of X-PWR and Revolution Energy fabric from Italy is used to support the hip and knee whilst increasing blood flow to the calves, hamstrings, quads and glutes. A heat bonded PU tape is used on the lower leg and positioned to support the soleus and help reduce one of the most common forms of calf pain. Once you put these tights on you will feel the difference, whether training, racing or using for post-workout recovery.
The combination of fabric provides a firm yet soft fit and actively wicks away sweat from your skin to regulate temperature and keep you dry. Comfort is maximised with a mid-rise 7cm waist band and drawstring cord (with the option to roll down should you prefer). A high denier strength material is used for our Black-Out feature which ensures the tights don’t go see-through during gym work and a matt fabric is used for a subtle finish.
Flatlock stitching is also used throughout the garment and heat bonded ankle seams for additional comfort and style. Each pair has two storage options, firstly there is a heat taped zipped pocket on the upper back for nutrition or music devices storage and there is also a hidden pocket inside the front waistband for smaller items.
- Graduated compression to increase blood circulation, reduce lactic acid build up and improve recovery times.
- Exo-Black & Revolution Energy fabric to improve performance, power and muscle support.
- Heat bonded technology for added comfort against the skin.
- Comfort waistband, drawstring cord and pocket design.
- Breathable and wicking fabric with built in UPF 50 sun protection and Antibacterial properties.
The Zone3 compression tights have been tested and validated by Progressive Sports Technologies based at Loughborough University. The testing validates that the tights offer the correct level of graduated compression which is proven to:
- Improve sporting performance and endurance.
- Increase muscle efficiency and power.
- Increase speed of muscle recovery time.
- Reduce risk of injury.

Running4Women – Product Review
The compression tights are a good quality material with good stitching and don’t ride up. They’ve been washed almost daily for the last couple of weeks and they haven’t lost any of the support and they dry really fast. The reflective design is brilliant for winter running. I can definitely feel more support when wearing these tights but I can’t fully comment on the technology as I have not been wearing them for long enough, I will continue to wear them and hoping to stay injury free. Score 4/5
