“I always loved running… it was something you could do by yourself and under your own power.” Although he didn’t have the luxury of wearing Under Control running tights, the mighty Jesse Owens had a point. He might have run even faster with the strategically-placed compression panels to provide maximum support to the quads, glutes and calves. They help reduce vibrations up to 30% and enhanced blood flow to speed up muscle oxygenation. The 2020 updated model provides even more comfort than previous generations with an improved fit and added mesh behind the knee for extra freedom of movement. The low, crossed waistband sits flat and still while the updated central seam eliminates chafing in the groin area. Optimised ventilation bands woven directly into the compression guarantee 360° aeration and quickly wick away sweat, reducing the risk of irritation and unpleasant sporty odours. Forget staying on the treadmill and head outside: the thermoregulating microfibre combined with optimal compression will keep you reassuringly warm and powerful during cold runs.
