I bought cycle shorts from another brand earlier this year. Hated them with a fiery passion. They cut into my thighs and made me feel like encased sausage. I put all of that aside, and those horrible shorts, and decided to give cycle shorts one last try. ACTA made me a believer. These shorts are buttery soft and best part, they don't cut into my thighs! I've gone running, done at-home cardio, weight, you name it workouts and they feel fantastic. I feel fantastic in them. They don't bunch or roll down. And I feel hot as hell. Do yourself a favor, buy a pair, or three.
