Orca 1/2 Tights

Price £45

Reaching just above the knee, the Orca 1/2 Tights target the major muscle groups of the upper leg - particularly the quads and up through the glutes (backside) - and work hard to keep muscles both warm and well supported during exercise. As with other leg compression wear, they will also help to minimise vibrations through the muscles, which in turn can reduce fatigue and go some way towards protecting existing injuries. Flat seams throughout add to the comfort level, while UPF 50+ protects you from the sun's harmful rays. Runners of a modest disposition may chose to  wear these as a base layer beneath shorts, as the tight gusset leaves little to the imagination.
