MCS Compression provides extra support to key muscle areas. MCS (muscle containment stamping) is a revolutionary fabric support system that traces over key muscle, tendon, and fascia groups to support major muscles against fatigue and strain during intensive exercise.
MCS 'stamping' assists performance by providing greater compression power by wrapping precise areas of the limb to reduce muscle oscillation and damage. This advanced engineering provides greater compression power without excessive bulk.
The stamping is its own layer, additional to the fabric not within it, and can be applied precisely where needed to support muscles, tendons, ligaments, and fascia groups.
Graduated compression tights exert the greatest degree of compression at the ankle, and the level of compression gradually decreases up the garment.
The pressure gradient ensures that blood flows upward toward the heart instead of refluxing downward to the foot or laterally into the superficial veins. The application of adequate graduated compression reduces the diameter of major veins, which increases the velocity and volume of blood flow.
2XU MCS Compression Tights contain our PWX 105D fabric consisting of 65% Nylon & 35% Elastane (Invista LYCRA®). The maximum amount of compression exerted is 23-26*mmHg - the highest in all our compression range.
