The Bike jockstrap was invented in 1874 to support bicycle jockeys working on cobblestone streets of Boston and this athletic underwear hasn’t changed much since then. Sure fabrics, elastic and technology has become more sophisticated allowing for better wicking and comfort but the idea has remained the same-that is, keep the jewels and groin area well guarded.
In the 1980’s and 90’s the use of the jockstrap in schools and colleges faded away in favour for the support brief. However more and more athletes today are embracing the return of the jockstrap as an important tool to fight fatigue and to minimise stress to the body.
Some might argue that the jockstrap never left us and with its popularity designers have increasingly added this important item into the undewear marketplace. So check out some jockstraps from Tommyrough- Bike and cocksox and you decide
