Perfect for marathons and events, the Stars Revolution Tights are built for endurance. The EXO-Lite Seamless Support Web provides shock absorption for your knee joints, hips and quads AND they are now 14% lighter than your average performance tight. Looking to break some records? These are the tights for you.

Runner's World Magazine featured the Revolution Tight as one of their top 8 options, in their fall 2012 article "Eight Bottoms to Keep You Warm Down Below".

FIT NOTE: This garment is very compressive and has a trim waist. If you find yourself between sizes or want less restriction in the waist we strongly suggest sizing up to the next size.

Susan says: IT bands are one of those things that most of us don't think about until it's too late, ie. when we become injured! I've been struggling with IT band issues for several months. I'm healing slowly by icing, foam rolling, running on soft surfaces, etc. Wanting to give my IT band as much support as possible, I decided to try the CW-X Revolution Tights. Wow! I wish I'd done this sooner! The tights are snug, yet not overly restrictive. They wrap firmly around my IT band and knee, providing fantastic support and a noticeably reduced amount of transmitted vibration to the muscles and surrounding tissues of my legs.

My only complaint, and it's a small one, is that I wish the size of the waistband were a teeny bit more generous.  I discarded the drawcord (these babies are not going to fall down) and find it comfortable, but still think that someone who is more apple-shaped than I (ie. a bit thicker through the middle) might find the waist size to be overly snug. Otherwise, the tights are perfect!

The CW-X Revolution Tight incorporates CW-X's most advanced EXO-Lite Seamless Support Web™ technology to offer a very lightweight running tight that provides extra support, stability, and shock absorption to the knee joint, hips, quads, lower back, hamstrings, calves and glutes. The Revolution Tights are extremely lightweight, 14% lighter than regular performance tights, and they are specifically designed for training and racing, endurance events, or recovery.

  • EXO-Lite Seamless Support Web™ helps the muscles and ligaments band together to stabilize the knee joint
  • provides extra support to the abdominals, hips, and back for extra stability and power to the core area of the body
  • offers gentle and continuous support to both the medial and lateral head of the gastrocnemius in the calf
  • provides lower torso and leg stability and balance during running
  • compression features accelerate recovery from the aches and pains caused by lactic acid build up in the muscles
  • 50% Coolmax® Nylon / 50% spandex 4-way stretch fabric helps keep the body cool and dry by pulling moisture away from the body to the outside of the tight
  • UPF 40+ for UVA and UVB protection
  • non-slip double reinforced waistband and drawstring keep everything in place
  • key pocket
  • women's specific design and pattern allows for a better fit
  • inseam measurement on the unstretched garment in a size medium is 25 inches; the manufacturer lists the inseam as 27 inches

Promising results

(Gym Rat) November 2, 2014

I wear the tights when going on short runs and when I teach or do fitness classes. I was a long distance runner but have knee stability issues, which includes meniscus tear and surgery. The tights have allowed me to run again but the stability capris I purchased have more knee support than the Revolution. I like the design; and, the extra firmness/supportive feeling around the knees keeps me mindful of form, therefore reducing the chances I will re-injure the joint.
The expense of the product is extreme in my opinion. I do respect the research and engineering that it must have taken to create the product, but the price is out of reach for a lot of people. If the tights keep me injury free, I will make sacrifices to be able to buy more.

Pros
  • Breathable
  • Lightweight
  • Stabilizing
  • Stylish
  • SUPPORTIVE
Cons

Magic tights!

(Avid Athlete) September 23, 2014

I recently moved to Monterey, CA from the Pacific Northwest. My "old" running gear was too warm for CA. I wanted climate appropriate tights for CA and discovered these tights. They are truly magic! No aches, pains or discomfort after my 3-10 mile runs. Most importantly, no excessive sweating during my runs. I am 5'8" and weigh 135 lbs. I ordered a medium. The tights are snug fitting and stay put during runs.

Pros
  • Breathable
  • Comfortable
  • Dries Quickly
  • Lightweight
  • Stylish
Cons
Uses
  • Recovery After Long Runs
  • Running
  • Sizing: Feels true to size

Size Up

(Gym Rat) September 22, 2014

I run and workout I am doing something 6
days a week between 1 & 2 hours at a time. These are great leggings. I am 5ft tall and weigh 112. The XS which are recommended for my size were WAY to tight in the waist I had to go with the small, which was still tight but felt much better than giving me a muffin top when I am truly to small to have one. If your waist is smaller than 26"
You'll be fine but mine measures 26" and it was constricting me. Other than the fact that CW-X needs to change the waist in their clothes.

Pros
  • Breathable
  • Comfortable
  • Dries Quickly
  • Lightweight
  • Stylish
Cons
Uses
  • Cold Weather
  • Cycling
  • Running
  • Yoga/Dance
  • Sizing: Feels full size too small

Fancy running tights

December 25, 2012

I have a bunch of the CW-X tights, and I had to try the Revolution ones. Great support -- I'm not sore after long runs in these. The only beef I have is the construction of the crotch. I think gusseted crotches just fit better. If you want a great pair of running tights with a gusseted crotch, get the Expert (not the insulated Expert)

Pros
  • Dries Quickly
  • Breathable
  • Lightweight
Cons
Uses
  • Running

"Look good but"

(Avid Athlete) August 17, 2011

Whilst I checked the sizing guide, when I tried the pants on they are really tight, and unlike "skins" compression gear there is almost no stretch.

Pros
  • Stylish
Cons
  • Poor Fit
  • Uncomfortable
  • Restricts Movement
Uses
  • Sizing: Feels full size too small
