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.

    • How does SA selects Regional Best for a Regional Meet? Criteria: Minimum Medal Potential, and Qualifying Mark attained in a sanctioned SA-AAF-IAAF Meet such as Asia Athletics Championship Meet held in April 2019   A prodigy or competitive athlete, coached or otherwise, performance excellence must be "consistent performance" and worthy to represent as Regional Medalist Candidate and Win Medal at Podium (Fair Play and Sportsmanship). Shanti Veronica Pereira, a prodigy and competitive athlele, coached by Margaret Oh (Specialist Coach in Sprints 100m and 200m) are both congratulated for making Singapore proud for 2019 SEA Games Bronze for both 100m and 200m for Woman. If from performance-based and consistency criteria, we shall encourage Michelle Sng, having an exceptional effort of 1.70m in her Finals against the best of Asia at position 10.  Can she repeat her first attempt and clearance of 1.83m at 2017 SEA GAMES performance? We are behind you, Michelle, for she has gone through pain, injury, as well.... We wish you all the best for the Nation! 9 Dec, 7:10pm High jump women final
    • SA: 2019 SEA Games Marathon Selection - Replacement of SohRunFaster "The SEA Game is just another marathon" criteria Who are they in 2019 SEA Games Marathon?  2 months ago based on today's Uncle sharing - Info is extracted from: https://secondwindnation.com/gordon-lim-surprise-sea-games-marathon/         Both Mok and  SohRunFaster had consistent performance in 5Km/10Km/21Km/42Km competitions in SA-IAAF/AAF Races including University Youth Meets.   There development and progressive programs which enabled the 2 outstanding athletes to be podium and worthy candidates for the Nation's Best and Regional Best shows why. "The SEA Game is just another marathon" selection by SA, had actually derailed from what are the objectives of what the National Sports Body has entrusted to SA, "Where are your Medals to show?". What is your KPI? If likedat, we got hope for anyone here.  Wanted: anyone who had been to Berlin Marathon, Boston Marathon, London Marathon, we need to have a replacement National Candidate for SEA Games 2021. Criteria, you must be a worthy Podium candidate. Agreed with @trailblazer (Coach)  Long-Term Athlete Development (LTAD) to develop people with potential to succeed in sports. Ideally, we should start to develop children when they are at young age. However, in Singapore, sporting is ..... For the sake of the Nation, please don't STAD - Short-Term Athlete Development. It has never been the Nation's intention to be bestowed a "Fair Play and Sportsmanship" saga reason and win a dishonourable sensational "S’pore SEA Games men’s marathon gold medal streak broken."  Sports build character. Yes, attitude to win and be the best is personal. What is morally wrong, including even if I am given the finisher or podium medal, it is no longer important anymore. What's more it is just sports, and to have used the excuse of "proof me wrong, that I cheated, lied, and based on "factual accounts", even if at disadvantage of 0.5km, or even to disadvantage of a lead of 1km or 2km, a marathoner runner - the sheer perseverance to compete and win the race, no one can describe that feeling..only the best endured wins period. Otherwise, show us evidence of consistency performance, on the field, as well as to show us, "Performing Marathoner" face saving grace? What is your Qualifier-to-Proof. Isn't that the same critieria of 2019 Games Marathon Race? Only the Best represents the Regional Best? SA KPI - 2 Bronze and 0 Goal. The pressure of Gold is now on Michelle Sng for High Jump (Woman).  Michelle Sng saga with SA? That one, wait until the event, then we see what's the reaction later on lah... Enjoy 2019 SEA Games (Athletics) with uncle here, exclusively.
