We first covered Opedix CORE-Tec Shorts when I used them in conjunction with my compression calf sleeves on sprint and jump events to reduce or eliminate back and knee pains – providing a shortened recovery period! And preserving my muscles and joints for future track and field events.

I recently wear tested Opedix KNEE-Tec Running Tights, their new alternative to knee wraps. These running tights with joint support – designed by biomechanical engineers and tested by scientists – offer a similar thermo-analgesic effect to knee wraps plus many other added benefits.  Knee-Tec’s movement-based, built-in tensioning system helps maintain joint alignment while improving the harmonious motion of the joints  This reduces knee drift and stress load along with quadriceps fatigue reduction during running.

While knee wraps have been around for years, KNEE-Tec running tights are a more comfortable, high-tech joint support option for athletic activities.  For knee unloading and quadriceps fatigue reduction, skip knee wraps and slide into a pair of  scientifically proven Knee-Tec tights.  They are made from the same luxurious premium fabrics found in the designer fitness clothing you love.

Made of 19-panel construction, 90% nylon, 10% spandex, with a gusseted crotch and zippered back pocket. There is a durable internal stretch draw-cord at the waist for support and perfect fit. Moisture wicking technology pull sweat away from the skin’s surface while breathable fabric helps regulate temperature. Anti-odor fiber technology is also sued to reduce odor and preserve freshness.

Review Summary

I’ve been wearing the Opedix KNEE-Tec tights whenever I do speed work and any P90X exercises on the field. I also wear them when training for triple jumps – box jumps, standing jumps, lunges, slaloms, single leg hops, etc. Anything that will stabilize but does not interfere with my movements but also preventing knee injury (or any injuries in general) is greatly welcomed!

I’m sure the Opedix KNEE-Tec tights is preventing potential injury by minimizing that risk. Additionally, it is also minimizing muscle vibrations while improving blood flow – what more can I ask? All the benefits of wearing compression apparel which I swear by – I always wear compression calf sleeves on every run or jump.

I ride a stationary bike (maybe I will invest in an ElliptiGO bike in the future) and cross training as a way to minimize impact on my knees from running and jumping. But wearing compression apparel and strengthening your core is a more reliable way of preventing knee injuries and shortening recovery time from competition.

The Opedix KNEE-Tec Tights is also available in 3/4 length version and in a women’s version for both styles, all in black.
