These new Sphere Compression Shorts are designed to be worn for grappling competitors of BJJ and MMA. They can be worn on their own or as added protection under shorts or Gi pants.
These stylish Compression Shorts can help to promote blood flow; therefore increasing muscle performance and efficiency. The other major advantage is that they protect you from minor injuries such as scratches, grazes and burns which can come from the mat or your opponents clothing. This means your skin will also be guarded against germs harbouring in the mat during grappling.
They are extremely durable, constructed from a polyester and spandex blend of fabrics meaning they will fit comfortably and withstand frequent and long term use. This material also means they are super quick drying which can be useful if you train regularly.
The stylish Sphere design with ergonomic panelling, thick elasticated waistband and Bad Boy branding makes the Sphere Compression Shorts an ideal addition to your training wear. Matching Sphere Compression Tops available!

Comfortable, but not without drawback

I got these compressions shorts to replace a pair of Hayabusa comp.shorts I had (that had split in the rear after I did a deep squat, embarrassing, yes, let's move on) so for me it becomes a case of comparing the two. The Hayabusa 'HABURI' shorts are of a thicker material and feel much tighter on the skin, where as the BADBOY shorts have more of a light feel and wrap around the skin rather than constrict it.
The major drawback of the BADBOY shorts I found was that they can't be worn exclusively to support a cup unlike the Hayabusa shorts (because of their tightness) or even previous iterations of BADBOY compression shorts. This essentially makes the BADBOY shorts extremely comfortable for training, but leave you needing to do use extra methods to facilitate a cup staying in place.
I like the length of these compression shorts as on me (6ft4) they reach just above my knees, which makes it look more like I'm wearing training gear and less like I'm in my underpants.
