    Top Notch

    Athletic supporters are never truly comfortable, but the Basix comes darn close. This is a big step ahead of your traditional jocks traps, and stays in place really well. Not to mention it gives you a little edge in locker room etiquette so you don't have to walk around in the buff or with nothing but a jock on.

    Wearing groin protection while grappling can be uncomfortable. These shorts keep everything in place and can be worn comfortably for long periods of time.

    Having played football in school and mountain biking as a hobby, I have grown fond of compression shorts for many reasons. They keep your muscles in place during all sorts of rigorous and repetitive actions to increase performance and protect sensitive nerves (great at keeping that sciatic nerve from pinching).
    These shorts go a step further -- they combine compression shorts with jockstrap/cup. The X system provides *comfortable* support and keeps everything in place.
    The best thing about these shorts really is the comfort they provide. They do not limit movement, they wick away moisture, and are made of a highly breathable, strong, yet flexible and soft material.
    You can't beat the combination of protection & comfort in this package. They are just as comfortable with the cup as they are without or without the cup, which by the way is worthy of a great review itself.
    If you are in the market for a new cup, jock strap or pair of compression shorts, buy these. You get them all in one package, with cup usage optional based on use.
    As a side note, I've used these while biking (due to forgetting to wash my biking shorts) and despite the lack of rear padding they were extremely comfortable and performance far exceeded my expectations.

    Buy them!

    Good quality

    The quality and the stitching on the shorts are great. They are light, breathe well, and don't limit movement. The cup is giant, though. Like twice the size of every other adult-sized cup I've ever owned. Luckily, you can take the included cup out and replace it with a normal one.

    Protective Cups Expert FAQs
    1. What type of cup do I need?

      During traditional boxing you shouldn't get hit in the groin often. You do want to be protected in case you are. There are jock and cup protectors, which are used in almost every sport and boxing-specific no-foul protectors. Multi-sport groin protectors are worn beneath your pants or trunks and consist of a cup and jock strap or shorts to keep them in place. No-foul protectors are worn above your pants or trunks and a protect a larger area, sometimes including the whole hips. Your gym may require a no-foul protector for sparring.

    3. Jock style vs compression shorts

      To hold your cup in place, you can get a traditional jock strap which consists of an elastic waist band and cloth pouch or a compression short that uses elasticity to keep the shorts and cup in place. Compression shorts are typically made of the tight wicking material that Under Armour made famous. You can wear compressions shorts as underwear before or after a session, sliding the cup in when you need the protection.
      While jock straps are light and uninhibiting, compression shorts can help keep your legs and hips warm.

    5. Hard cup vs no-foul protector

      One of the main differences in cup types is the padded no-foul protector vs the hard cup. The hard cup is generally what you think of when you are considering groin protection. They are made out of hard plastic, generally have perforated holes for increased ventilation, and often have a rubber coating along the edges. These cups conform to the groin-specific area, and are often encased by jock straps or compression shorts. The other variety is the padded no-foul protector, which covers a much bigger area. No-foul pads often wrap around the kidneys and lower abdominal, and sometimes have guard flaps down over the hips and upper thighs. These are not often worn under clothing.

    7. Are there female specific protectors?

      Yes, there are a wide variety of protectors designed for women. For something simple and effective, women can choose a more slender version of the jock strap that is designed to curve with the female form. They can also utilize unisex no-foul hip protectors that guard the whole lower abdominal area.
