Wacoal Sports Science Corp has expanded its CW-X performance conditioning wear line to include three-quarter length tights and performance tops and new colours for conditioning tights and shorts

The New York-based company said the new tights feature compression panels to support key muscles and joints while the short and long-sleeved tops will be available in fall 2003, with limited availability of a warm weather version starting in spring 2003.

"The response to CW-X tights and shorts among both trade and consumer was so great that we decided to provide the marketplace with a three-quarter length product as well," said the firm's corporate vice president John LA Wilson.

"The new tops also round out our offering, allowing us to provide active, outdoor athletes with a coordinated clothing system that maximises performance and minimises fatigue."
