Marvel selects Hayabusa to Create Limited Edition Boxing Gloves for the Everyday Hero
Gym-ready Marvel Hero Elite™ Boxing Gloves created by combat fitness industry leader Hayabusa, inspired by Black Panther, Captain America, Captain Marvel, Iron Man and The Punisher.
LOS ANGELES, CA — February 18, 2019 — Hayabusa, the most trusted and innovative brand in combat fitness and sports, joins forces with Marvel to create a one-of-a-kind boxing glove series inspired by superheroes from the Marvel Universe. The limited edition Marvel Hero Elite™ Boxing Glove inaugural collection, available for pre-order this month, will be released this Spring.
Pre-orders for the gloves will begin in mid-February at www.hayabusafight.com/marvel, while the product will be available for shipping in March.
Before now, any attempt at pairing boxing gloves with fictional characters has been underwhelming and gimmicky. Hayabusa, with its eye for innovation and a portfolio of superstars like Georges St-Pierre and everyday gym warriors who train in our gear, created gloves that are ready for anything. They are the best boxing gloves in any universe.
“Sliding on a pair Hayabusa Marvel boxing gloves, you instantly feel like you've gained superpowers,” said Ken Clement, Hayabusa CEO. “The essence of the superhero, combined with the quality and craftsmanship of the gloves reset your standards. It drives a feeling that pushes beyond physical or mental limitations you might have felt. With Hayabusa gloves, you feel like a superhero."
Leading into the design of each glove, Hayabusa was given exclusive access to the Marvel universe. This line of boxing gloves was designed with the same passion and dedication that goes into all of our products. The goal is to give everyone a unique experience as though they were receiving the gloves directly from the cutting-edge world of Marvel.
"Hayabusa has elevated the bar, marrying style, creativity, technology and true function to the Marvel Hero Elite™ Boxing Gloves,” said Marvel President Dan Buckley. “Hayabusa boxing gloves are beautifully crafted with a truly impressive design focus around protection and safety."
Marvel’s franchise of superhero films has taken the world by storm. The roster, which includes Captain America, Thor, Black Panther, Ant-Man and many others, has grossed more than $17 billion since the release of the first Iron Man in May 2008.
