Contender Fight Sports pioneered the combative sports equipment industry long before the sport’s mainstream appeal materialized. In doing so, it has developed thousands of training and competition products designed for one single purpose – to aid athletes in reaching their full potential. Fighters recognize that gear stitched with our logo includes built-in quality and functionality that they can trust to perform even through the toughest challenges. This has been achieved through an ongoing, conscious effort to develop new ideas, improve production methods and incorporate cutting-edge technologies. But don’t take our word for it, see for yourself…
Contender Fight Sports's Injected Molded Foam Technology (IMF Tech) is centered on a single piece of protective foam produced by injecting a specially formulated liquid component into an anatomically correct mold. The result is a durable, shock-absorbing foam that requires no break-in period, will remain consistent over time and will encase the fist in the most natural position possible.
Contender Fight Sports's Quick Tie Tech simplifies and streamlines the hassle of traditional lace closures. Quick Tie Tech replaces internal eyelets with external lace channels, effectively eliminating the inconvenience of having to tighten each lace section individually. Instead, equipment can now be tightened with one, simple pull of the strings.
Contender Fight Sports's Flex Panel Technology integrates elastic flex hinges at specific positions. These panels alleviate the static nature of traditional materials by expanding and contracting with the user, thereby providing the most custom fit available.
Contender Fight Sports’s Gel Shock padding system includes specifically positioned layers of gel that supplement the foam core and enhance the impact-absorbing properties. The multidimensional nature of gel also enhances comfort for the user.
Contender Fight Sports's Dome Air Technology (D.A.T.) combines specially engineered foam layers with a strategically placed air pocket to disperse and minimize incoming force. The air chamber accentuates the impact reducing properties of the foam by using air trapped in the pocket as a natural energy dissipater.
Contender Fight Sports's Quad-Layer Impact Foam System consists of four foam layers, bonded together to create the ideal composite for absorbing shock and maintaining the protective integrity of the glove. Each foam layer is specially designed to complement the other and when combined, shield the user from incoming energy.
