Well, a few years ago I read up on the CW-X stabilyx tights somewhere here on this forum and decided to give them a go. Since they were spendy, I asked for them for Christmas in 2017. I've worn them almost every time I've skied since. Wow what a difference. I have runner's knee and it used to bother me when I ski, not any more. I have been having a bad run with a hip and groin issue that I though for sure would keep me from the slopes, and then I dug these babies out and pulled them on and viola, I'm the bionic woman. Are you ladies seeing the same results? I "lost" them in the laundry a few weeks back and it was the worst skiing I've done in years and I ached afterward for three days. Anyone else feel the difference with these?
