Q: Congrats on the Leadville 100! Very impressive!
I’m a newbie mountain biker…less than 6 months under my belt. A typical weekend ride is about 30 miles. Are compression tights beneficial to the weekend warrior or are they more for endurance riders?
A: Compression For All! Yes, compression is beneficial for absolutely everyone. They even use compression tights in hospitals post surgery to help recovery. I wear them on the plane and in the car to combat the negative affects of traveling.
Regardless of the amount of miles you put in, compression wear is scientifically proven to increase venous blood flow to the heart, which speeds up recovery.
