Nike Power Speed Tight

Top sprinter English Gardner doesn’t mince words: “I have to have my tights. Tights help keep you stabilized, [and yet] give you enough free flow of movement to have the power.”

A full-time training schedule, with the motivation of winning in Rio in her mind’s eye, keeps Gardner on the track all week, which means she relies on her tights to help stabilize sore muscles and aid recovery.

Taking Gardner’s insights as a starting point, Nike designers crafted tights to aid the linear motion of running and the muscles it engages.

Designers employed a slim cut to maximize compression provided by a lightweight, high-elastane Dri-FIT fabric that has ample stretch and retraction to smoothly adapt to the runner’s stride.

Notably, enhanced compression along the hip, thigh, calf and Achilles tendon boost muscle control. These compression zones are accentuated by screen-printed graphic lines, inspired by the flow of a track, that visually enhance the natural beauty of the athlete in motion.

Beyond Gardner’s immediate requests, designers solved for the needs of elite and everyday runners by adding an encased drawcord at the waist for a personalized fit, reflective details for low-light conditions and bonded ankle zips for easy on and off. A vapor-lined pocket for phones or keys sits on the back hip for men and at the center back for women.

From sprints to distance training, Nike Power Speed tights provide perfectly tuned performance support. Discover more information about Nike Men's and Women's training tights or shop the Nike tights collection at

Nike's new compression pants look great and for sure it fits and performs well but it is too much pricey, but I guess the price is right.

Hi Paul/Keziah! They do look good. Saw one the other day. Nike's offering tend to be a bit more expensive compared to other brands. If you got the dough and fancy their designs, go and get one. For a cheapskate like me, I'd window shop and look for alternatives ;)
