Zoot Recovery 2.0 CRx Tight

$160, Zootsports.com
The draw: Sturdy recovery-only tights

These post-workout/race tights feature reinforced compression patches over the quads, hamstrings and calves for a targeted recovery effect. These tights are longer than others, covering half of the foot, which creates a snug, wrapping feel. They are more difficult to get on and off due to the longer leg, but not so much to deter use. The long leg catches at the heel so there’s no harsh elastic ring around the ankle when you take them off.
