Introducing Long Tights and Calf Sleeves
with the Improved Comfort from Smart Seam Technology

GOLDWIN Inc. (HQ: Shibuya, Tokyo / President: Akio Nishida / First Section of the Tokyo Stock Exchange: 8111) is pleased to introduce “Inspiration Long Tights” and “Inspiration Calf Sleeves,” which has improved its comfort due to its taping on the seams. The new Inspiration line from C3fit, GOLDWIN’s high-performance compression wear brand, is qualified as the General Medical Device in Japan. Sales stared in early July.

Since the C3fit brand’s debut in 2009, “Performance Long Tights” and “Performance Calf Sleeves” have been its core lines due to its function, simple design, comfortable fit and ease of movement. The new products, “Inspiration Long Tights” and “Inspiration Calf Sleeves,” take C3fit “Performance” line to the next level with the new and innovative “Smart Seam” technology.

The new “Smart Seam” technology covers the seams with a specially-made stretch tape, creating a smoother surface and preventing chafing or discomfort caused by the stitches. Its comfortable fabric, 3D design, and the General Medical Device quality remains the same as before.


With this new feature, users will experience greater comfort during training and post exercise recovery. Along with the optimal features of the “Performance” lines such as promoting blood flow, suppressing muscle vibration, and UV protection.

The C3fit brand will apply the “Smart Seam” technology not only to long tights and calf sleeves, but also to arm sleeves and t-shirts with the aim of reducing chafing and discomfort, and giving a feeling of a second skin.
