New Generator Revolution Tights, Running Socks and Weatherproof Running Jackets Arrive for Fall/Winter 2016

Generator Revolution Tight in Mt. Fuji print

NEW YORK, N.Y. – The Wacoal Sports Science Corp. (, introduced the proven performance and recovery benefits of the patented CW-X® Support Web™ to America in 2002, and has continued to lead the way for runners and outdoor athletes ever since. The innovative spirit of CW-X continues into fall/winter 2016 with new ways for runners to obtain seamless Targeted Support, CW-X running socks and jackets, and many news ways to look great in wearable technology.

The CW-X theme of industry-leading engineered endurance apparel will be epitomized this fall with the new Generator Revolution Tight for men and women ($200 suggested retail). Patented CW-X EXO-Lite Seamless Support Web technology in the Generator Revolution running tight creates the most comprehensive muscle and joint support system available for athletes. Made from new four-way stretch Coolmax fabric featuring laser-cut Support Web technology, the CW-X Generator Revolution tight, with Mt. Fuji print, represents the state-of-the-art in seamless engineered endurance apparel.

CW-X will also offer the PerformX Ankle Socks ($30) as part of the CW-X Components collection. The breathable, wicking fabric socks incorporate Support Web technology to support the ankle joint and arch of the foot, to provide stability and fatigue reduction for runners.

Another completely new offering from CW-X for fall/winter 2016 are the Endurance Run Jacket ($130) and Endurance Run Vest ($95) for men and women. The new jackets and vest are engineered to support natural running motion while providing comfort and protection from the elements. The jacket and vest are available in charcoal grey, and feature a flexible, lightweight and breathable soft shell, which is both water repellant and wind resistant, and has a UPF UV protection rating of 60+. In addition, 4-way stretch polyester panels in the back and shoulders allow for breathable ease of movement, and mesh polyester inserts under the armpits add extra ventilation. Thoughtful features for runners include thumb loops, a drop-tail back with lower lumbar zipper pocket, and multiple reflectors.

The men’s Revolution collection will also expand with the new StabilyX Revolution tights ($200). The new tights feature the first seamless, EXO-Lite application of the joint-focused StabilyX Support Web, and arrive in a fiery yellow/blue/red colorway.

The elite Endurance Generator collection, incorporating the most comprehensive sewn-in support for the muscles and joints of the lower body, will focus on a new look for the fall. Both men’s and women’s Endurance Generator Tights will feature gradients of color, with a blue gradation for the men’s tight, and a pastel rainbow colorway for the women’s tight, both $170 sug. ret.

CW-X StabilyX Tights provide optimum targeted support for the hip, pelvic, and knee joints for improved endurance and stability, and will debut two new looks for the fall, starting with the pink/purple lava, and grey rose prints for women ($150).
