Of all the many brands producing fight gear in the world today, there are very few who can truly boast the level of pedigree that Revgear of Los Angeles California can. Starting from humble beginnings, Revgear has consistently produced excellent fight equipment for the sports of Mixed Martial Arts, Kickboxing, Boxing, Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, Krav Maga and many other combat sports.

Unlike many of the more marketing minded MMA brands that flooded Europe after the meteoric rise of mixed martial arts, mainly via what is now the world’s top promotion the Ultimate Fighting Championship, Revgear has established itself through the professional academies and gyms of North America. The Californian brand is known by coaches worldwide for its rugged reliability and innovation in its design with products such as the shortened Curved Thai Pads, favored by top Brazilian MMA coach Rafael Cordiero. Or the Deluxe Pro 7oz MMA Sparring Glove which is designed like a competition glove. However it certainly could be argued Revgear’s merits have sometimes been overshadowed by more apparel based competitors, some of whom they have produced equipment for in recent years. But in 2016, REVGEAR is set to take center stage and show the rest of the world why the brand has been a top pick in professional academies for so long.

The list of fighters, coaches and combat sports professionals who use, or have used, Revgear in their day to day training during their rise to the top, reads like a who’s who of MMA. The list includes international stars like Fabricio Werdum, Nam Pham, Chris Leben, Renalto Sobral, Rory MacDonald, Ross Pearson, Nate Quarry, Gerard Moussasi just to name a few.

2016 brings a whole new inventory to Revgear. Gone are the Henry Fordesque days for the brand where you could have any color glove as long as it was black. Now customers can choose from an array of color ranges available in all main lines such as kickboxing shin guards made in Thailand, new cross training shorts and the highly anticipated release of the Sentinel “S3” Glove. More new looks can be found in the streamlined range of pads endorsed by the UK’s Essential Padman, Karl Tanswell and the huge success of the ultra-cool kids range.

These ranges alongside a new generation of top fighters & coaches in Europe who are now discovering America’s best martial arts brand, the stage is set for Revgear to finally take the number one fight brand spot. With a team of supported athletes such as Jon Lewis Dickinson, Arnold Allen, Mike Wilkinson, Davey Grant and Saul Rogers representing Revgear in Europe, the future certainly looks bright.
