We are a young, dynamic Delft start-up, focused on providing protection without compromise through innovative body armour and impact protection products. Be it a martial artist fighting with heavy impact weapons or a hockey star on the field, a soldier serving in the military or an operator working heavy machinery on the factory floor, we are pioneering the protection technology to help these users effortlessly and safely carry out their tasks, and in style.

Currently we are working on bringing our first product, the ProGauntlet, a protective hand exoskeleton, to market. In the process, we are pushing the boundaries of not only impact protection technology in body armour, but also in smart-agile manufacturing in order to deliver high-quality customized products to users that ‘fit like a glove’!
