How CW-X Compression Clothing Works


 

What Makes CW-X the Leader in Performance Clothing?

CW-X Conditioning Wear is the only high performance apparel brand that incorporates both compression and muscular support technology. CW-X Support Web™ stabilises muscles and joints to reduce risk of injury and improve balance. Combined, these two attributes make CW-X a standout in the high endurance scene in Australia and around the world.

Targeted CW-X Support Web™

The Patented CW-X Support Web™ technology mimics kinesiology taping techniques that trainers apply to injured muscles. When this technology is applied to muscles and joints it creates an exoskeletal support system that improves biomechanics during motion. The CW-X Support Web™ provides targeted support to key areas, decreasing muscle oscillation and focusing power so your muscles work more efficiently. Variable compression along the web facilitates circulation, minimising lactic acid build-up and muscle soreness, so you can be active longer and recover faster.

The 5-point inner cup Targeted Support Web™ in our line of bras is made up of five interconnected inner cup straps that support each breast independently without excessive compression or wires.


Targeted Variable Compression

All CW-X gear is engineered to provide targeted variable compression. Each CW-X Collection has a different focus on specific muscles and/or joints. CW-X strategically incorporates the correct levels of compression pressure allowing more oxygen to active muscles - this allows you to increase power during exercise, improve your endurance and recover faster.
 

Research

CW-X Conditioning wear has been tried, tested and proven by the Wacoal Human Science Research Center in Kyoto Japan. For forty years, scientists at Wacoal Human Science Research Center have studied kinesiology, the science of human movement. They have tested over 35,000 people and analysed injuries relative to warm-up and cool-down periods. They have come to understand the mechanics of joints and muscles in minute detail. This exhaustive study of body movement has culminated in over 50 patents worldwide. 

At this specialised research center The CW-X Support Web™ has undergone testing for stability, balance and knee impact. An independent VO2 oxygen uptake study was conducted by the University of Montpelier, France.

All CW-X Conditioning Clothing incorporate the unique CW-X Support Web™ to ensure athletes have both compression and kinesiology taping benefits. Through these studies it has been scientifically proven that CW-X Compression tights and tops:

  • Improved muscle efficiency– less oxygen usage over time.
  • Improved stability and balance by 10%. Stabilised muscles don’t have to work as hard.
  • The Support Web™ Stabilises muscles and joints to reduce risk of injury.
  • Reduces knee impact by 12% during high impact activities – this applies to most sports and fitness activities – running, outdoor sports, snow sports, walking, dancing etc.
  • Increased arm swing under normal use - better forward propulsion during running and less energy expenditure over time.
  • Reduced muscle fatigue during exercise – electromyography results show a reduced rate of muscle fatigue during and after exercise than regular stretch tights or shorts.
 

Performance Fabrics

CW-X Conditioning Wear is made from the highest quality performance fabrics available. Each garment is engineered strategically for ventilation, compression and stability for muscles and joints. CW-X Tights, Shorts and Socks contain panels made from four-way stretch material that stretches for fit your body comfortably while retaining its shape.
