So what exactly is CW-X®?
It is kinesiologically-engineered apparel. Anatomically-precise conditioning wear designed to enhance the body’s performance, from warm-up to recovery. It’s much more than just regular clothing, it is high-performance equipment. The “CW” stands for Conditioning Wear and the “X” is an infinity symbol.
How exactly does it do that?
With four-way stretch fabric and a patented conditioning web mirroring the lines of human anatomy. CW-X® bands muscles and joints into an exo-skeletal support system, increasing the body’s efficiency, diminishing fatigue, and helping recovery.
What is the Conditioning Web™?
The Patented CW-X Support Web™ technology mimics kinesiology-taping techniques that trainers apply to injured muscles. When this technology is applied to muscles and joints it creates an exoskeletal support system that improves biomechanics during motion.
Who makes CW-X®?
Wacoal Sports Science Corporation in NYC makes and markets the CW-X® brand, in conjunction with parent company Wacoal, headquartered in Kyoto, Japan. Wacoal has studied kinesiology for forty years, collecting data from over 30,000 people and developing engineered apparel to enhance performance.
What is kinesiology?
It is the science of movement. The study of the human body in motion.
What sports can benefit from CW-X®?
Any sport that challenges your body to move. Whether you run, climb or bike, or test your knees, thighs and lower back on ski slopes. CW-X helps support joints and muscles during any activities.
What is Lycra and Coolmax?
Two revolutionary Dupont fibers have merged to form the fabric of CW-X®. Lycra gives an athlete comfort and superior stretch resistance. Coolmax, the fastest drying fabric in the world, keeps its wearer cool in summer and warm and dry in winter.
What season is best for wearing CW-X®?
All seasons. In summer, the wicking of moisture keeps you cool and dry. In winter, this base layer keeps you dry and warm, and combined with the Conditioning Web (TM), insulates you with two layers of fabric. CW-X has specific products for all temperatures as well as for cold temperatures.
What makes CW-X® unique?
It is born of a 40-year of study of kinesiology. It has earned an astonishing 51 worldwide patents. It is the first anatomically-engineered apparel, worn by athletes as diverse as Olympic athletes, World Cup soccer players, Tour de France cyclists, and Major League baseball players. No other apparel products offer patented targeted joint and muscle support like CW-X.
