To say that TORQUE is the latest in MMA gear and apparel would be an understatement. TORQUE is a reinterpretation, a revision, and a re-engineering of combat sports equipment specifically designed for practitioners of MMA, boxing, and athletics in general. When an athlete engages in a controlled combat sports environment, they can be assured that with TORQUE they will receive the utmost in protection and performance based on design innovations specific to the sport.
Since its inception, TORQUE has made a commitment to not only protect the athletes that utilize their equipment, but also include athletes in their research and development to create a stellar product that results in peace of mind, as well as a design that offers prolonged use over other standard MMA product lines. Simply put: TORQUE has set a new standard, and fighters & athletes alike can count on TORQUE from the opening bell to the final round!
But its a simple equation; great gear made to a very high standard and backed by an industry mogul Scott James who co founded BSN nutrition one of the original UFC sponsors and incredibly successful nutrition brands of the last decade.
