What are the Harley Street Elite Impact Shorts?

The all new Harley Street Elite Impact Short is a fully patented, second-generation compression garment for use in a wide variety of sports. With a new and improved design, the Elite Short is the result of extensive scientific and athletic research at the hands of Dr Jerry Gilmore of Harley Street. The Gilmore Training Shorts were specifically developed for sufferers of Gilmore's groin or any groin or hamstring injury. The patented design is specifically engineered to support the groin muscles and the hamstrings. The support provided by these shorts may be beneficial in conjunction with an exercise programme to help with the recovery of these injuries by reducing the load put on these muscles. The compression provided may also help in aiding a faster recovery from delayed onset of muscle soreness in all athletes after exercise. The resulting product, the Gilmore Elite Impact Short is set to captivate the market with slick anatomically formulated features and complete flexibility.

What is Gilmore's Groin?

Gilmore's Groin is an exceptionally common injury in the field of kicking sports such as football and rugby, and was first recognised by world renowned groin specialist Dr Jerry Gilmore in 1980. Having noticed the ailment within athletes in the footballing world, Gilmore spent the best part of 20 years working alongside the injury, treating it and eventually designing the Impact Shorts to help counteract the effect of the otherwise debilitating condition. Though commonly referred to as Sports Hernia, Gilmore's Groin features a tear in the aponeurosis of the External Oblique muscle or a tear to the Internal Oblique muscle. The name 'Gilmore's Groin' is more suitable due to the fact that no actual herniation takes place.

How do the Harley Street Elite Impact Shorts work?

Featuring a skin hugging compression fit with specialised targeting to vulnerable areas and a four way stretch design for complete impact resistance and manoeuvrability, the fully patented Gilmore Elite Short offers complete anatomical and aerodynamic efficiency during use. With supportive adductor lines and a higher, thicker waistband which provides focused support to the groin and helps to prevent the shorts from slipping during use.

With seamless edges and unrestricted four way movement, the Elite Impact Shorts offer unrestricted aerodynamics and a comfortable anti-chafing material design. Wicking fabrics allow the short to breathe and remove moisture away from the skin to keep the user warm and dry during physical activity. When worn following strenuous activity, the Elite Impact Short helps to reduce swelling and decreases the symptoms of delayed onset of muscle soreness. This allows the athlete to recover faster after exercise.


Simon Marsh, Consultant General Surgeon and Surgical Director - The Gilmore Groin and Hernia Clinic, had this to say:

"Operating on sportsmen and women with Gilmore's Groin (also known as a sport's hernia) is just the beginning of getting them back to full fitness. Equally important is the rehabilitation that must be done after the surgery. Whilst many will have help from physiotherapists, some will undertake this on their own, and all want to feel secure as they return to fitness.

"Wearing compression shorts such as the Gilmore's Support Shorts, Physioroom's Impact Shorts can aid rehabilitation as they provide support as the tissues heal and return to normal. Some will continue to wear them as they resume their sport and in some cases wearing compression shorts can delay the need for surgery when early symptoms of Gilmore's Groin occur. I consider that compression shorts, such as the Gilmore's Support and Impact Brand to be a valuable addition in aiding recovery after surgery"


Please note: Product is made from 80% Nylon and 20% Elastane.
