Tech & Innovations

Our innovations are changing the industry, and that's just the beginning.


Intelli-shock logo
We at Rival are proud to be the first in the boxing and MMA world to use d3o Intelligent Shock Absorption in our line of equipment.
d3o™ Intelligent Shock Absorption™ is a patented shock absorbing material, engineered with Intelligent Molecules. At slow speeds the molecules inside d3o™ flow freely making it soft and flexible, whereas at high speeds the molecules lock together to become an excellent shock absorber. 
d3o™ offers considerably more protection than conventional foams, making it the perfect solution to enhance the internal protection in equipment and accessories.
As an example, with our new RB10-d3o Intelli-shock Bag gloves, seeing as the d3o™ hardens upon contact, not only have we been able to reduce the amount of energy transferred to the body by 40%*, which means that there is a drastic reduction of stress upon impact,  but we have also been able to make the glove approximately 38%* lighter than regular bag gloves with gel technology available on the market.
