ProGauntlet is a protective exoskeleton for the hand, designed to provide the best combination of impact & thrust protection and motoric freedom. This glove was developed by a team of passionate martial artists-engineers with one purpose:


To enable martial artists to safely bring out the best of their performance in training and competition by getting rid of the severe limitations of common protective gloves.

Rather than improving upon existing concepts, the ProGauntlet has been engineered from scratch on the foundation of extensive research in biomechanics, medical science, impact physics, and material science.


The development of the ProGauntlet has been conducted in collaboration with the Delft University of Technology in the Netherlands and the design is patented (or currently pending) in multiple countries world-wide.

The ProGauntlet is composed of a self-supporting, plastic hardshell with a specialised padded inner glove. The design has many unique features and qualities that make a big difference for your safety and performance.

Key in our solution is:

Optimal impact reduction
Lightweight, smart geometry hard shell elements
combined with shock obsorbing layers

Ergonomic design
Based on biomechanics and sizing studies

Modular & renewable parts
Improving costumer fit and product lifespan

Full mobility, always protected
Overlapping scales preventing material strain and equally protects the limb in all positions

We are on a journey to bring impact & thrust protection and motoric freedom to the next level for the H.E.M.A community.

After more than 5 years and over 32.000 hours of research and development we are proud to launch production in 2019.

With the H.E.M.A. as our first priority we see potential in other sports and construction, offshore and law enforcement markets.
