Compression can be used to highlight the shape of your legs or to attempt to enhance performance. It can also make pants feasible for bikers who can't afford to get a loose pant leg stuck in a gear.

Different fabrics are also stretchier. Try fabrics with a 4-way stretch for increased comfort instead of fabrics with only a 2-way stretch.
