The CW-X Support Web™ provides targeted support to the areas most taxed by a triathlete: the core, hip flexors and upper back. By stabilizing the hip flexors, an area strained by pedaling and often overdeveloped in cyclists, the Support Web brings the rest of the lower body into alignment for increased efficiency and reduced fatigue. Targeted support for the upper back and core improves posture, breathing and allows the arms to move more freely.

Hike / Climb

For hikers, wearing CW-X tights and shorts is like lightening your load: it means you can go longer, faster and with less strain on your body. CW-X's patented Support Web™ bands the muscles and ligaments together to stabilize


Extensive studies show that wearing CW-X tights results in 26% less energy expenditure than running in regular tights and 36% less energy than running in shorts. CW-X's patented Support Web brings the hips, knees and ankles into proper alignment, reducing impact and load to the legs. The Support Web™ also provides a suspension system for the hamstrings and quadriceps, reducing workload in both the pull and push phase of the running motion. With more efficient strides, your muscles don't have to work as hard over time and your legs will feel fresher.

Snow Sports

CW-X's patented Support Web™ bands muscles and ligaments together to support and stabilize the knees, quadriceps and core. The result: increased power output in turns and decreased vibrations for greater edge control.

Yoga / Pilates

The middle of the body is vital for balance and stability, two things that are very important in yoga and pilates. The CW-X Support Web™ offers optimum support to the core and lower back while also stabilizing the hip flexors and gluteal muscles, so you can perform more strenuous poses with greater ease.


After strenuous activity, CW-X tights can hasten recovery thanks to the anatomically designed Support Web™.
