2XU Compression Cycling Short

Things that you will not know till you buy a 2XU compression cycling pants.

the lining, more comfortable. You can read more info about the product here

made in China, design in Australia. Please check at the sizing chart from each product or better get the sales person to recommend. Try it on before you purchase.

The sizing start for cycling compression short

Made in Italy Chamois. The main contact area of the pelvic region is supported by 8mm, high density foam to offer maximum support while mid level impact cushioning protects the frontal region with less bulk for comfort. With the added benefit of extreme moisture management from Italian fabrics and four way stretch aided by LYCRA® fibre, 2XU sets the benchmark in chamois technology.

inside out - the shapes like a bike saddle, overall very good padding, just right for each section

5 hours after removing the compression short - the red mark still there!

According to the washing instructions:

1) you must wash with cold water

2) dry in sun shade – do not try under the sun.

3) do not use fabric softener

4) Rinse immediately in cool water after each use.

All the above mentioned is to protect and extend the lifespan of the fabrics.

Verdict from me about 2XU Cycling Pants

1) Better to get a 2XU bib instead of cycling short especially to those who has tummy. If I have a choice again I will get a BIB.

2) Tested this pants on Kemensah trail for 20km - I do not see any diff.

Thats all. Nothing seriously impressive for a RM400 cycling pants. I bought this pant to replaced on old one. Brands like F2P already cost RM200 so I ended to try this compression shorts.

Anyway its still too early to conclude about 2XU compression cycling short now. Will come back to add more review. Watch out.

There are a few shops in Klang Valley selling this product and I bought mine at Quick-sport. They are having sales now till 16th April in conjunction with Energizer night race 2011 at Sepang International Circuit. 25% off
