BRAND INTRODUCTION – 2XU COMPRESSION

Ayush Kundu BOTS Guides, Product Launch

2XU (pronounced “Two Times You”), an Australian company, was launched when former professional triathlete Jamie Hunt turned his passion for sport into an obsession with performance fabrics.

Starting out as a specialist run and triathlon brand, 2XU has grown to become the world’s most technical sportswear company, driven by a relentless pursuit to multiply human performance.

2XU is set to take the Indian sportswear market by storm, as their proprietary fabrics and compression wear is used by professional athletes across sports.
