To achieve this, we collaborate with experts, explore cutting-edge materials, and rigorously test new products. Pioneers from the start, we've been crafting chest protection since the 1970s!
Strong + lightweight

Setting the standard
We've been producing chest protectors since before standards existed, and our products were used to define those standards.
In 2010, QP Sport ventured into new territory, crafting a chest guard tailored for men and boys in WKF karate. Extensive research into the force, energy, and pressure of karate kicks and punches led to rigorous testing of various materials and designs. The outcome was the certified BodyGuard, introduced in 2014, offering wearers the essential chest protection without compromising mobility or comfort.
