The purpose and design of CORESHORTS™ is what differentiates them from regular compression shorts and makes them UNIQUE! CORESHORTS™ set a new industry standard and are a necessary component of any athlete's equipment. They are designed to mimic the functional anatomy of the core area (the body's anterior and posterior diagonal sling systems) while also providing compression.
CORESHORTS™ patented design (Core Activation System) utilizes a series of strategically angled elastics to produce the first anatomically correct compression short.
• Diagonal elastics cross from the hip to the opposite mid thigh - front & back
• Waist area is circumferential providing pelvic compression
• Tension is created for both unidirectional and multidirectional movements
