Unbelieveable price for compression tights

Recommended Posts

Did a search @ Amazon. And i manage to find some 2XU products. After selecting a 2XU Men's Performance Compression Short and a 2XU Men's Graduated Performance Compression Tights, it only adds up to ard SGD$150. Can someone verify the price? Coz its quite unbelieveable when the long tights alone retails ard SGD$175.

I bought mine from amazon as well, it was $56++ just a few weeks earlier. Mine arrived in a classic amazon smiley box with ample air packaging and the entire 2xu box was unscathed in the delivery.

I can only imagine the journey it took considering it was manufactured in thailand, warehoused in fulfillment center at OR, dispatched to KY for air freight and sent halfway way across the world back to SE Asia. Carbon neutral it is not.

Its the exact same product as sold by the 2xu website based in australia. I've only bought the trisuit once off 2xu.com and the packaging is similar to the full compression tights I got from amazon.

Make sure you buy it from amazon and not third party, I've never had any issues with amazon and I've bought on average 14 items per year from them now.

Saw this thread and try to order from Amazon. Never tried to order anything online before. Placed my order for CW-X 3/4 length tights and cost around USD$50+ and shipment another USD$11+ on 12 June 2011. Just received it today via speedpost. Everything is in good condition. The quality is much better than 2XU tights. I think that retailers in Singapore are selling too high to earn more profits from us.

Name me one local retailer that does sales the scale of amazon. There is no way they can compete on price if local stores only import a few dozen pieces of each item.

Was down under and Australian retail for 2XU is even higher than the US and Singapore, some items still higher even after discount.

Amazon sells in a whole bulk so I guess they are able to sell cheap? Or maybe stock clearance?

Unsure if this was brought up before, would like to hear from others whom have tried various tights.

2XU vs. SKINS vs. CW-X etc.

Thanks.

I use SLS3, CEP, CW-X, 2XU and Zensah. (all compression) been using most for them >2 yrs for events

All ordered from states. Local just to ex.

I have a few of each brand

My personal choice:

CEP for me. (Socks, tri suit and calf sleeves)

CW-X for my cycling and running tights

I am using CEP (http://www.cepcompression.com/) but I don't see much discounted apparel available online.

Not tried any other.

CEP is very comfy, but at the expense, I see that material is not as lasting as it is softer, but compression better

the 2XU anytime. there's always a trade-off somewhere.

I have a ebay seller who does CEP quite reasonably priced. If you need the contact, let me know.

I got my full CEP compression trisuit (not china made one like some brands, then still pay more)

at ard SG$240 with shipping a few months back. Calf sleeves ard SG$55? if I rem

Just for your thots :)

Hi guys,

I just received a pair of CW-X pro tights. I'm wondering if it is necessary to wear underwear under the tights as the main seam (that which goes front to back, through the crotch) is not flat-stitched and I'm worried that it may cause chafing in a very sensitive area.

need advice from the pros. :)

some say wear and some say no need. i will always say, no need to hear others say, try it out yourself and if it cause chafing, then wear underwear.

    • I agree. This reminds me of the cartoon about the man and the mule. Here's the SCSM 2019 edition! 
    • Hi Guys, we cannot pleased everybody. Last year when SCSM was held in the morning, there were alot KPKB at FB about JAM in Spore. I rebutted them that this was only 1 year once so why can't they bear with it? In my opinion whether day or night, they will still complain. Since Spore sporting culture is not there, their mindset will always be negative. So simply don't bother to explain.
    • S’pore SEA Games men’s marathon gold medal streak broken.  The marathoners came in 7th and 9th place. Singapore long-distance runners Gordon Lim and Loh Yu Ting came in seventh and ninth place on Dec. 6 morning at the Southeast Asian Games marathon event, marking the end of Singapore’s gold medal streak at the men’s marathon event. It was the first time since 2011 that Singapore failed to obtain a gold medal from the event, nor make it to the podium. Marathoner Mok Ying Ren first struck gold in 2013 at the SEA Games, while athlete Soh Rui Yong continued the gold medal streak in 2015 and 2017. Soh, 27, was not selected to be part of the SEA Games 2019 team in August, despite making up 50 per cent of Singapore’s gold medal haul at track and field events in 2017.         Uncle was proud to be associate with the SA in 2015, as SEA Games Official, on behalf of Asian Athletics Association. Uncle officiated some of the memories of the best efforts of these athletes (due to home ground advantage), included 28th SEA Games Marathon. "At the 2015 SEA Games in Singapore, Liew suddenly found himself leading the 12-strong field in the men’s marathon by about 50m after his rivals missed a U-turn and took the wrong path. He said then that he slowed down to almost a crawl in order to wait for them to catchup. https://www.todayonline.com/singapore/marathoner-ashley-liews-account-act-sportsmanship-2015-sea-games-untrue-claims-gold "Soh eventually claimed the gold medal in 2hr 34min 56sec, while Thailand’s Srisung Boonthung and Hoang Nguyen Thanh of Vietnam finished second and third respectively. Liew’s actions were widely publicised and earned him kudos from many Singaporeans, including a mention by Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong at the National Day Rally two months later. He was recognised by the SNOC in 2016 with a special award for sportsmanship at the Singapore Sports Awards. In October that year, he was awarded the accolade in the category of “Act of Fair Play” by the International Committee for Fairplay, which recognises acts of fair play by athletes or sports teams. However, Soh alleged that Liew’s account of the race — and his act of sportsmanship — was “untrue” in a Facebook post on Sunday. He made the comment after an Oct 13 post by the International Fair Play Committee on their Facebook page, which called Liew a role model for fair play. He wrote: “I was third place in that race when we took the wrong turn. When we turned around perhaps 50m into the wrong turn, Ashley was already running in the other direction. We took quite a while to catch up to him (at least one to two minutes), he certainly did not stop or slow down to wait for us." Uncle officiated some of the best field events also, included High jump women sensation, Michelle Sng - 2015 SEA Games (Bronze), and later 2017 SEA Games ( historic Gold). Any athlete who wins Gold medal, and to stand on the Podium, emotionally, when the National Anthem is played and everyones stand attention, it is a proud moment for the Country.   Of course, saga of SA and Michelle Sng remained... With Soh out of the 2019 SEA Games, high jumper Michelle Sng is the only defending gold medallist among the athletics squad, who took home eight medals at the last Games (2017). SA, what will be your KIP (we want nothing but Gold Medal) at SEA Games 2019? RunSohFast is definitely a missed "Gold" medalist, based on Soh's PB if show up at SEA Games 2019. Uncle shall update all until of 10 Dec, 2019. Yes, uncle had been with SA for more than 5 years since 2011 - involve in IAAF Level 1 Youth Coach (Athletics) and IAAF Level 1 Technical Official. Aiya, who's who in SA, uncle knows all, saga...Uncle did once talked to Mok Ying Ren (aka Dr Mok, married), he laughed with me that he also got saga with SA (uncle cannot reveal why )...SA is saga-able...uncle also got saga with SA (cannot reveal why also)... RunSohFast....SohRunFaster...SA, you KPI hangs by Sea Games 2019...ahah...how many Medals (minus 1 Gold Medal already)...hopefully not zero!
    • More criticisms - taken from the TODAY’s Facebook page or sent to Voices (TODAY forum page) ‘Selfish’ and ‘ridiculous’: Response from Singapore Marathon organisers on traffic gridlock draws ire I know my opinions may be biased but I find it a little ironical when the comments posted are just as 'selfish and ridiculous' eg. "Suggest Lim Chu Kang or Pulau Ubin", "this boils down to chest-thumping and prestige, without caring for the inconvenience it causes non-participating Singaporeans", "The right thing would be to never hold it again",
