Sub RX Men's Graduated Compression Shorts

Get your blood pumping and perform at your best with Sub RX Shorts.


Targeted compression. Greater endurance

They provide greater compression to areas where your circulation is at its slowest, aiding blood flow back to the heart and supplying your muscles with more oxygen. As a result, you'll feel more powerful and be able to keep performing for longer.


Breathable, high-wicking fabric

Constructed from the most advanced compression fabric available (Lycra Sport Energy), Sub RX Shorts are highly breathable and excellent at wicking moisture away from the skin, helping you stay cool and dry during intense exercise. The Lycra fabric's superb shape retention also ensures that your shorts will hold their compression fit time after time, wash after wash.

36" waist and got the XL size. They're about 7" in length down the inseam and don't go all the way down your leg but perfect length.

They hold the compression well after numerous uses and washes

High quality and just as good as the higher priced brands.

Bottom line: I will buy more of these

I ordered these shorts to give me extra support when training in the gym but also for playing football. So far they have been great. The quality is very good and the fit is comfortable. I have worn them for regular kettlebell classes and they have proved invaluable during the endless amounts of squats!!!

Quality product at reasonable price - but be careful on sizing - I have a 30 inch waist but ordered the medium and they are comfortably tight.

Bought several different garments at the same time and this range were by far the best quality - can't fault them. Have washed them several times now and while other makes loose their colour, looks and shape (even their stickers designs) this range still looks like brand new! Wish I had bought more of them!

These shorts are made from good quality lycra ( not the thin stuff which the dual compression shorts are made of ) but they are shorter in the leg by about 2 inches, so could have done with being a little longer. The pair I received had a lycra crotch panel, not mesh as shown in the photo, so I'm a bit confused about that, but that's not too much of a problem. They are great for wearing under trousers for cycling or for running. I will definitely buy another pair.

I have 2 pairs now - after the success of the first pair in aiding recovery and reducing chafing i had to get another pair to ensure i had all my runs covered - i've tried at least half a dozen running shorts options and these are amazing, in my opinion!

I cannot speak highly enough - i have worn them hiking, trail running, and in my marathon training, at times up to 18 hrs and they are very comfy.

Very good material and performance!

I'm a 32inch waist and a medium fitted fine. It is a little bit too snug for the jewels mind, presumably as they are compression pants, however all round they are very comfortable whilst offering excellent compression, flexibility and after many washes they are still going strong.

These are much, much better than Nike 2.0 compression shorts which however comfortable it's material is too light (the lighter fabric is good for summer mind), but the Nike shorts offer little if any compression and the fit isn't as good. The Sub Sport's are also better than the Skins bio A200.

Just note the previous model ('Black/orange/gray' model) had a draw cord this does not, however this doesn't effect the performance much as the waist band doesn't slip down, and this model is definitely an improvement over the later. This, the RX also has a heavier material than the sub dual models which has an almost cooling effect.
