The Nike Pant Studio: Workout Tights Designed By Activity
Nike has launched new workout tights and pants as part of the new Nike Pants Studio, a concept designed to give athletes more choice and enhance workouts with apparel that was made for specific activities and they’re available from Intersport Elverys.
“We are designing for every athlete — no matter what activity they’re doing,” says Jamie Lee, Senior Design Director for Nike Women’s Training. “On top of expanding the styles, we’re giving choices for materials, finishes, feel, rises, lengths and features.” Think of it like a denim bar for your workouts.
To help you determine which style could be right for you, you can follow this simple guide:
PUSH, PULL, LUNGE, SQUAT, BEND AND ROTATE: IN THE NIKE POWER TIGHT
When it comes to making training tights, designers focus on the six core movements (push, pull, lunge, squat, bend and rotate).
The Power Tight has a new bonded waistband that provides more support while still being really flexible so you won’t feel constricted during core exercises. It’s midrise in the front and curved higher at the back to keep your butt covered during deep squats and deadlifts.
Powermesh fabric (essentially an elasticised mesh with compression) provides moderate compression, feels slick to the touch and helps to keep you dry and cool through the most intense workouts.
Small pockets on the sides of the thighs fit your phone so you can easily access the latest NTC workout or your pump-up playlist. You can check it out HERE
HIT THE TURF: IN THE NIKE PRO TIGHT
Whether you are part of a team or just like to train as though you are, the Nike Pro Tight was designed to make you feel ready to take on any demand — from practice drills to agility work to lifting heavy — by making it feel like you aren’t even wearing pants. It’s the lightest style in Nike’s line, and you can wear it as a base layer under shorts if you prefer a little more coverage or on its own.
Lightweight cooling fabric and mesh panels that wrap around the legs provide targeted ventilation. The seams are minimal to reduce the chance of distraction or discomfort that could throw you off your game.
GET YOUR SPIN ON: IN THE NIKE FLY TIGHT
During a spin class, the bike may not move. But you certainly do. You’ll alternate between heavy seated climbs, where your torso is lengthened forward; standing climbs, where you raise your hips and shift them back over the saddle while reaching for the end of the handlebars; you’ll do sprints, get in and out of the saddle and sometimes even pick up light weights. And the vibe is typically intense. You need the new Nike Fly Tight.
“It gets so hot in a spin class, and these tights are light and breathable that it almost feels like I’m not sweating at all,” says Clotilde Chaumet, a Parisian indoor cycling instructor. That feeling is thanks to large mesh panels at the back of the knees (which designers learned was a high-sweat zone).
The waistband is lower in the front to prevent bunching and rises higher in the back to keep you covered and comfortable when you’re on the bike. Slip a key or card in the bonded internal waistband pocket. Shop HERE.
MOVE TO YOUR OWN BEAT: IN THE NIKE BLISS PANT
Contrary to what one might expect, not all movement is best served by a tight. In fact, sometimes a looser pant is the answer: Especially when the action in question requires unrestricted, multi-directional mobility as during dance or boxing workouts. “When I wear a looser pant, I don’t sweat as much and I feel more comfortable than when I’m in something tighter,” explains Alejandra Smits, a contemporary dancer from Spain.
The relaxed fit and four-way stretch woven fabric of the Nike Bliss Pant offers versatile lightweight coverage, the type needed for smooth transitions from one shape to the next.
FLOW, PULSE OR PLIE: IN THE NIKE SCULPT TIGHT
When you’re doing movements that focus on posture, such as yoga, Pilates and types of dance including ballet, you want to get as much length through your spine and to feel grounded in your feet.
The hi-rise waistband holds in your core while graduated compression provides full lower-body sculpting. “Dancers need to feel very centered and tight through their core — that bellybutton to spine feeling — and the rise on these hits me right where I need it, under my ribcage,” says Nardi Boodoo, a professional ballet dancer. “The cut makes my legs look and feel super long and my torso look little, so it also gives me a really confident, flattering feeling.”.
