You don’t have to be the biggest to make the best gear

QP Sport is a small company with a big vision: to develop and manufacture the world’s best protective breast and chest guards. Since 1981, we’ve been doing just that from our base in New Plymouth.

Despite being a small business in a small town, our high-performance products have earned us fans all over the world. Designed for karate, fencing and other martial arts, our protective gear helps women in particular feel safe, comfortable, and confident. We sell to a range of major sports gear suppliers, either under our own brand or theirs.

State-of-the-art standards

QP Sport has been producing protective gear since 1981, so we know what we’re doing. We develop and manufacture all our products in a state-of-the-art NZ facility. This gives us incredible control over the quality and design of our range.

We work with some of the world’s leading sports-science experts to make sure our understanding of breast impact, biomechanics, motion control and health is up to date. These include Sheffield-Hallam University, and the University of Portsmouth, both in the UK.

This access to expertise, combined with our decades of experience, helps us create products that exceed European standards and the high standards of our customers. QP gear is known for its quality and dependability – when you’re putting your body on the line, it’s essential to have gear you can trust.
