Material Gains - Our new Protech material is a giant leap forward for fencing uniforms. Unbelievably, it is 37% lighter than other FIE spec materials. In an average men's size this equates to an 830g (1lb13oz) weight reduction, with all of that weight off your shoulders you are free to move faster than ever before.
Stretchier - Featuring true 4 way stretch this uniform is way stretchier than anything else on the market, something you will appreciate as soon as you put it on.
Contoured design - Developed from the ground up with over 25 of the worlds top fencers from all three disciplines. Every stitch and seam has been considered with one single aim: to improve your performance. By designing the uniform to fit when in an En-garde position rather than when in a normal standing position we have created a uniform that is designed to fit when you are actually fencing. This asymmetric design gives much greater freedom of movement in your sword arm.
The athletes that helped create this revolutionary uniform wouldn't fence in anything else:
An Athletes view: "As a professional fencer you are always looking for the best equipment, the new Leon Paul Apex range gives me the comfort I need during a match and the weight is incredible, sometimes I forget that I am wearing a fencing suit. It is so thin and light that you never really feel hot and sweaty when you are wearing it. I think with this new fabric, Leon Paul is proving again that they only produce the highest quality of equipment for every fencer."
- Bas Verwijlen NED - Olympian and former world No.1
"Less stitches and seams to fight against means it is more comfortable and less restrictive. I have poured lots of energy and research into this uniform and I am so glad that it will now be available for all fencers."
- Soren Thompson - US Olympian and World Team Champion 2012
"The Primary goal of project Apex was to reduce weight, improve the cut and shape of the uniform and make something more breathable. I think we have succeeded in our mission and have gone above and beyond what we hoped to achieve."
