Update as of 15 Dec 22: I have a large order of ARK-1 gloves coming in but it's taken a while to ramp up production capability at my overseas manufacturer. Expect there to be inventory for sale on this website by early January, but my distributors around the globe will receive their orders first, so expect them to have gloves soon, possibly by this Christmas.
After two years of relentless testing, reviewing, modifying, and prototyping, I'm very happy to finally introduce the ARK-1, the first glove in a series of affordable imported equipment that meets all of your training needs, with a price tag that won't be out of reach.
After going through several overseas manufacturers, I finally found one ready and able to take on this huge and risky challenge. We started with the PTE stitching pattern, and locally sourced foam to match what I use in my domestic glove. We then arranged with a local tannery to custom manufacture our leather to match the leather I use here in the US, and they did an incredible job! It’s thick, strong, and very color safe. After a year of prototyping the design, we were able to achieve an incredible glove that is impressive in every way. With more color and size options coming, as well as head gear and groin guards in the works, don’t miss out on this very limited offering while there’s any inventory, because it most definitely will not last long. I’m also providing something new for ARK customers – I can now put your name or other text on the glove using heat transfer vinyl for a minimal charge! This will add a few days to the shipping time; otherwise, ARK orders will go out within 48 hours, and worldwide shipping is available! All ARK gloves come with the standard 1v1 Fight Gear glove bag as well. And remember: every single piece of ARK equipment will go onto or in my hands to ensure fit and finish, and honestly there are few people on this planet who have boxing gloves on their hands more than me! I will leverage my glove making expertise to the maximum extent possible to ensure you get a product that won’t let you down! And take advantage of working with a small business by calling me anytime, if you have any questions – the phone number is on the contact page, and it goes straight to my personal phone. Go ahead and try to reach one of the other elite level manufacturers in the same way! Not going to happen!
