ENCINITAS, Calif. (July 9, 2012) – Zoot Sports, a global leader in endurance sports, expands their CompressRx line of compression apparel to include the new Performance CompressRx THERMOmegaheat+ tights and mock for men and women. CompressRx is the most respected medically developed compression sports apparel on the market. It has been scientifically tested and proven to reduce perceived effort and also to increase recovery times after hard workouts or races.

Research shows that Zoot CompressRx provides active advantage during exercise, with a 29 percent decrease in lactic acid build up and 25 percent reduction in perceived effort. The new Performance THERMOmegaheat+ CompressRx pieces are ideal for athletes braving the winter weather, as they bring both the benefits of warmth and compression technology together in one comfortable solution.

“Scientifically tested compression technology has become an everyday necessity to so many athletes out there,” said Molly Kline, marketing director, Zoot Sports. “We knew it was time to take the benefits of targeted compression into winter combining our proven THERMOmegaheat technology and CompressRx designs.”

The new Performance CompressRx THERMOmegaheat+ garments are designed with graduated compression, meaning greater pressure at the farthest part of the limb from the heart. The pressure gradually decreases, as it gets closer, accelerating blood flow to the heart where it can be re-oxegenated. The new apparel also features Zoot’s MEGAHEAT®, a multifaceted technology that keeps athletes warm by hyper-wicking moisture away from the body. The sweat, itself, generates heat through a thermal reaction, and amplifies the sun’s ultraviolet rays into readily accessible heat.
