Boxaid: Boxaid: Advancement in Boxing Headgear Design & Padding

Current market standards of boxing headgear have shown to be incapable of providing an apt form of protection from the elements of sparring, being made with cheap foam that is unable to properly protect against the kinetic energy of a punch. Boxaid was designed as a reaction to this issue, focusing on providing equipment that is capable of performing to its utmost potential. Designed to prolong an athlete’s career and lifespan, Boxaid utilizes a stronger padding system with a sleek form unique from all other market headgears.
