Accordingly, the AEPD cut is made for the shape of cycling, not standing (just a little something to remember when you try them on). With the tK. 607_S5, the cut greets the contours of your body and adds a slight compression that aids in muscle stabilization. It's worth noting that AEPD achieves this without adding a sensation of pressure. Further along these lines, the leg grippers use a no-pressu...
