Try picturing life without Uber, Google and Amazon (who said Tinder?). Kind of hard: wireless technology is amazing, and it has truly changed the way we lived over the past few years.
However, you’ve probably heard how a number of major scientific institutions around the world have raised alarms over the harmful effects of wireless radiation on our health. Over the last years, male fertility has been on the decline, and testicle cancer is one of the most frequent cancers of young men. If the debate on radiation is still opened, the Cleveland Clinic - the country’s leading center for clinical research in male fertility - found that men who keep their phones in their pocket for more than 4 hours per day experience a 50% reduction in sperm count!
Here at SPARTAN, we didn’t want to this to threaten our modern life. We want to keep using technology without changing any of our habits. That’s why we have created the SPARTAN Boxers.
The SPARTAN Boxer is the boxer of the future. For the first time, we are bringing together design with innovation to create underwear that shields your family jewels from wireless radiation.
With SPARTAN, you just have to put on your comfy underwear in the morning to happily use your smartphone, tablet and computer with all the peace of mind of knowing your manhood and most important assets are safe.
We’re bringing to underwear the same advanced technology used in space suits (no kidding!). We developed a unique high-tech fabric by incorporating pure silver fibers within the cotton of the boxer.
The silver acts as a faraday cage (or electromagnetic shielding), which prevents radiation from reaching your cherries. Our special fabric has been tested in an independent lab at the French Waves Institute and we block over 99% of all cellphone and Wi-Fi radiation.
The hard part was to manage to integrate the Silver Fiber in the cotton of the boxer without losing elasticity or creating a rigid fabric. We wanted to shield our little soldiers, but definitely not to wear armor. It took use months of work and hundreds of prototypes and different fabrics to get it just right, but we finally manage to create a fabric that is just as comfortable as your regular pair of undies.
The good news is that the silver it contains also makes SPARTAN boxers naturally anti-bacterial, so you and your downstairs area stay fresh at the end of the day. Stinky undies are already part of the past.
We know you want the best for your crown jewels. We sure do. That’s why we chose to design SPARTAN boxers in the Fashion Capital of the world: Paris, France.
Our stylists have been working with one clear goal in mind: surpass the level of comfort and style of the best undergarment already out there.
With SPARTAN, we are truly raising the standard of male undergarment with high-quality French design for optimal comfort and an exceptional fit.
Thousands of people in the world are already wearing SPARTAN. Most of you told us you want to wear SPARTAN every day and that you want diversity for your undies.
You have asked for it, so we’re bringing new models and new colors to SPARTAN.
After submitting our community to a vote, here is the new set of colors that we are ready to produce:
Your favorite color is not in there? We would love to produce more, and have you vote for the colors YOU prefer. Keep an eye out for our stretched goals!
We have our final prototypes, and our manufacturers are ready to get started. But in order to do this, we need to produce upfront an important quantity of fabric for each color. We cannot do this without you.
We already have a good amount of our unique fabric in blue, so we only need $5,000 to start the new collection. Each of our stretch goal will then enable us to add a new color to the collection!
You will be asked for the colors and sizes you want at the end of the campaign, so that you can get the broadest choices possible depending on the goals we reach.
For the next few days, you have the opportunity to take part in the SPARTAN project and help us save humanity with boxers. For the occasion, we have created a Kickstarter-only price to help you get SPARTAN for yourself or your loved ones.
The more boxers you buy, the more you save!
We have got thousands of customers in the US, Europe and in over 20 countries. We have been working with all of our factories and providers for months, so we are confident in our abilities to respect our timeline and deliver on time all over the world.
The more people we can reach, the more success we can drum up together.
To thank you for your help in getting the word out, we are giving away 5 packs of 3 SPARTAN Boxers. Simply share the SPARTAN campaign on the social media and send us the link to your publication to email@example.com. We will randomly draw the 5 winners out of the participants at the end of the campaign. Each different link (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram...) counts as a different entry, so be sure to share the campaign as widely as possible!
We also share our newest actualities and create giveaway contests from time to time, so be sure to keep an eye out!
We are a young startup based in Paris & New York City, and we are passionate about health and technology.
Concerned by the impact of cellphone and wifi radiation, we wanted to create a stylish high-tech boxer to keep using all of the technology available and stay safe. We’ve been working day and night for months to bring you the best and safest undergarment to protect your package.
Our ambition: raise the standard of men underwear and make those "super-boxers" mainstream!
Any pledge amount brings us one step closer to our goal. Help us create the healthiest good looking boxer by clicking the ‘Back This Project’ button at the top of the page, and by spreading the word by sharing our page.
From all of us at Spartan, THANK YOU so much for your help!
Risks and challenges
We have been working for months with the best manufacturing and fulfillment companies and we made sure to mitigate as many risks as possible, but we know that there will be hurdles along the way. Here are the main challenges we face:
Ship Date: We have built in extra time for the manufacturing process and we are confident we can deliver on time, but there is always a chance that things will take longer than planned.
Product changes: As we refine our design based on additional community feedback, slight changes might be made such as a color change or more designs available.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
