PerformX Tights Added, VersatX Line Expands, and New Colors Across the Range

NEW YORK, N.Y. (Dec. 21, 2007) – The Wacoal Sports Science Corporation, makers of CW-X® Conditioning Wear (, has introduced PerformX, the newest addition to their line of targeted-support tights. Other new additions for Fall/Winter 2008 include the VersatX Web Top and Zip-T, StabilyX 3/4 length tights and new colors across the line.

The Coolmax/Lycra four-way stretch PerformX Tights incorporate focused support to the major muscle groups of the legs in a different patented Conditioning Web configuration than in the Expert, Pro, or StabilyX Tights currently offered by CW-X. The support structure of the PerformX is focused on hip-flexors, quadriceps and ilio-tibial bands (IT bands), and it will be available in men’s and women’s sizes for a sug. ret. of $75.

The VersatX Web Top incorporates an upper body Conditioning Web support structure that specifically targets the trapezius muscles and scapular bones of the upper back to assist in supporting posture and creating more controlled shoulder and arm motion – leading to more efficient movement. VersatX products are made from Dry-Zone fabric, which offers quick-dry moisture wicking, and UPF 50+ UV protection through the use of titanium-oxide nanotechnology. Dry-Zone fabric also features anti-bacterial silver nano-composites and four-way stretch comfort.

The VersatX line will be expanded further with the new Zip-T (which will not include the support web), featuring Dry-Zone fabric, flat-seam construction, a half zip with wind-flap and zip cover. The new VersatX Tops will join the current VersatX Tights to form a mid-weight technical base layer and will be available in men’s and women’s sizes for $90 sug. ret. for the Web Top and $85 for the Zip-T.

“We’re happy to be able to offer these important new additions to our ever expanding product line,” said John L.A. Wilson, president/COO of Wacoal Sports Science Corporation. “The PerformX Tights and new VersatX Tops effectively complement what we believe is the most advanced anatomically-engineered apparel collection in the sports and outdoor market today.”
