What makes Kraken Gear different to all of the other athletic brands out there?

The Kraken Gear brand is all about combining science with active wear. We have taken two years to design, refine and then prototype something that we can finally be proud of.

Based in Melbourne Australia we are a small boutique company focused on quality, performance and 'outside of the box' thinking.

The Kraken Gear concept is to improve the technology and science behind the garments.

We are using dual zone compression which helps to change the pressure difference across the garment. This combined with targeted stitching helps to create better circulation, improve performance whilst helping with recovery. Kraken Gear is not your typical sports wear.

So if you are looking to try something different, something better, this might just be for you.

About Kraken Gear

The Kraken Gear compression wear is all about combining science with active wear. We have taken two years to design, refine and then manufacture something that we can finally be proud of.

We are a small boutique company focused on quality, performance and 'outside of the box' thinking. 

We are reaching out to the Kickstarter community to help us get us to the next level. We are planning on using the funds raised to begin production of our revolutionary compression gear, and to allow further research and development of new and exciting products.

We've come a long way and and you can see how the concept and design has progressed below. The compression gear is totally custom. We have been perfecting the design, materials and it is definitely not an off the shelf design.

Concept

The compression wear has been designed with Bernoulli's principle in mind.

Bernoulli's principle states, 'that an increase in the speed of a fluid occurs simultaneously with a decrease in pressure or a decrease in the fluid's potential energy.' Fluid as like most things moves from an area of high pressure to an area of low pressure. 

We have incorporated this principle in our compression wear and have added dual zone compression areas so that there are areas of differing pressure throughout the garment. 

We have increased compression and pressure differences in the lower part of the pants to assist with blood flow, movement of fluid and overall recovery.

The design also contours and sculpts the important areas, so not only are you wearing high performance compression gear, you are looking good doing so.

 2 x Designs (the choice is yours)

We’ve put a lot of work into making the perfect compression wear. We’ve got our prototypes ready and with the support from our early backers from the campaign, we can now go into production and share it with the world. The final version of Kraken Gear is as good as the samples and is better, stronger and cooler than ever. The more we sell, the more testing and research we can put in to make Kraken Gear something special for now and the future.

Risks and challenges

Over the last 2 years we have been working on bringing you the best product we possibly could. To do this we have built a partnership with Slyletica, who are leading design, manufacturing and fulfilment brand.

We have taken the time to design, refine and manufacture an awesome product which allows us to guarantee high quality and functional active wear.

The sample we have is a working sample from the factory, so the quality design and specs have already been locked in. Once we reach our funding goal we will begin production to ensure we get them out to you as soon as possible.

We pride ourselves on our communication and engagement so as we take this journey together we will keep you updated along the way.
