Our History

WE UNVEIL THE INFINITY POWER BRA

Shock Absorber launch a new innovation, the InfinitY Power Bra a sports bra that offers ultimate breast control with 100% freedom of movement. The new design takes feedback from their customers, creating an innovative support system which anchors the breasts to the "centre point" of the body, instead of relying on the shoulders and sides.

The result is 80% bounce reduction, as tested by Portsmouth University. The unique Y-shape back construction delivers on an adjustable fit and freedom of movement around the shoulder blades.

3D BREAST MOVEMENT RESEARCH

Pioneering research on breast health was commissioned by Shock Absorber and conducted by the University of Portsmouth (Scurr and al). 3 dimensional breast movement was tracked using infrared cameras which provided key insight into importance of sports bra support whilst exercising. Since this original research was carried out, Shock Absorber has tested all new styles at the University of Portsmouth to measure their reduction in breast movement.
