We are Shock Absorber


We know the importance of breast support during exercise. Since our launch, the design and development of our sports bras have been underpinned by science. We commission research from the University of Portsmouth, the world leaders in breast health, to test the performance of our products and we are continually testing and upgrading our performance fabrics to bring you cutting-edge breathable, moisture-wicking fabrics.

Research showed that wearing a Shock Absorber Run bra can reduce breast bounce by as much as 78%*, which is twice as much as a normal bra.
