2XU (pronounced "Two Times You") was launched when former professional triathlete Jamie Hunt turned his passion for sport into an obsession with performance fabrics.
Together with two business partners, Australian retail guru Clyde Davenport (founder and past owner of Davenport Industries) and marketing specialist Aidan Clarke, Hunt created 2XU in Melbourne, Australia in 2005.
Starting out as a specialist run and triathlon brand, 2XU has grown to become the world’s most technical sportswear company, driven by a relentless pursuit to multiply human performance.
2XU takes athletes beyond what they thought possible, enabling them to train harder, perform stronger and recover faster.
Power. Weight. Flexibility
2XU's proprietary PWX compression fabric has been developed for sport using the most advanced medical technology. Over the past 13 years we have developed a compression fabric that is highly powerful, lightweight and flexible for the ultimate performance.
Durability and Comfort
2XU's PWX compression fabric features durable high-filament nylon yarns and the most powerful and long-lasting elastane yarns for consistent power, shape and comfort with repeated wear.
2XU compression has a controlled graduation profile to increase blood flow, reduce blood lactate and increase lymphatic drainage. From development through to production, 2XU compression garments are tested using the medically certified Salzmann device.
2XU garments are backed by almost a decade of research from the world renowned Australian Institute of Sport (AIS) and RMIT University.
2XU is worn by world champion athletes and sports teams and is endorsed by the world’s leading sports institutions.
