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.

Including air freight from dhl its still cheaper than what you'll get in singapore.

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.

    • Now that you are excited about what is ahead of 2020, uncle shall end last post in this forum with this local video production which have inspired uncle to Run Around Singapore. Enjoy.       Wishing all, your families, a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.  End
    • my dear @Lady Ice, let uncle explains simply... Abbott World Marathon Majors Wanda The Abbott World Marathon Majors is a series consisting of currently 7 of the largest and most renowned marathons in the world. Wanda Group or Dalian Wanda (Chinese: 大连万达), is a Chinese multinational conglomerate based in Beijing. China's Wanda buys Ironman Triathlon owner for $650 million. Wanda 大连万达 markets and promotes those cities that are in this exclusive club. IAAF provides the sanctioned Road Race Labels (Bronze, Silver, Gold, Platinum) Rules and Regulations to any country which want to host must meet the strict selection trial required as entry to the Abbott World Marathon Majors. Invitation to World ranking runners must be regional, not continental only. Singapore, being having the financial resources, has the advantage. The disadvantage is the size of participants. So to increase the size and qualifying runners, she needs to invite also regional runners to participate. Expect STPB (like what @lonewolf said) to aggressively promote the Hub of Marathons.  
    • Ok - so am old lah 😛 - been  on this forum for far too long...
    • Saga 1: The SA's internal carding system - which allocates athletes up to $1,200 per month based on various criteria - had expired month without the necessary follow-up. (info: https://www.straitstimes.com/sport/officials-say-track-body-must-sort-out-disputes)   Saga 2: Against paying Singapore Athletics share of award money  (info: https://www.straitstimes.com/sport/football/soh-against-paying-sa-share-of-award)   Summary: Soh (did not take part), Michelle Sng (did not win a Gold Medal), and Shanti Veronica Pereira ( Collected 2 Bronzes), the 2 Sagas will not affect Shanti Veronica Pereira because she can stay on with the $1,200 monthly allowance, happily with her Coach, and she gets her 2-Bronze Award for her Performance (and surely gladly give 20% to SA). SA will be delighted with the 2-year Excellence Peak Performance Program till 2021. The greatest loser in the Sagas is Soh because he will not have both - $1,200 monthly allowance, and already based on his PB, he could have collect a Gold Medal from 2019 SEA Games with an Award of $10,000. Even if he will be unwilling to share with the 20% to SA. SA only loss "$2,000" but save $1,200 monthly allowance for Soh for the next 2 years (savings of $28,800). SA -+$28,600 vs Soh -$10,000 - $28,800 (2020-2021) As for Michelle, she already said she wants to retire in 2017, but the surprise Gold Medal on that year makes her a defending Champion. Pain, Injury and Tears - for every jump. Plus she has reached beyond 30, and to be family-focused should be her entitlement in life. High Jump has given her a sporting life and to announce her honourable retirement from the call of Nation. It will be expected. SA - which has been controversial from the core. Change the whole SA? How many times have SA changed? Life as Usual. No change is better then to Change. Whatever. Marathon has been a Gold Medal for SEA Games. We will surely make a comeback. Without SA, marathoning is the only key spark in Athletics that even without $1,200 monthly allowance, Mok and Soh can be regional champions. So you know what Mok's Saga with SA, "Uncle, you say lah, the $1,200 monthly allowance, don't have money how to go overseas for marathon qualification mark closer to SEA Games, use personal paylah!" Now, everyone knows what is SAga is about right? "Money Not Enough, how to run overseas Marathon races." "What I win, is all Mine not yours, SA."  "SA :  gain $28,600 vs Soh minus $10,000 minus $28,800 (2020-2021)" "Ashley Liew demands S$120,000 in damages from teammate Soh over ‘false’ claims about sportsmanship act still outstanding."   Uncle wishes Soh Gets Lots of Money for the year of the Metal Rat (2020).    
    • The shorter answer may be there are many IAAF races but only 7 WMM (at the moment). So its a combination of scarcity and prestige.  And one more thing. STPB no more P liao. STPB was established in 1964. Nowadays it just STB (since 1997!)
