Now a household name in top kickboxing & MMA gyms worldwide, Fairtex fight gear began in the 70’s with their products were available only in Thai department stores. The founder has been at the forefront of Muay Thai promotion & sport development for decades.

A passion for the sport’s development combined with premium craftsmanship, keeps this brand at the forefront of Muay Thai equipment. Strong champions like Yodsanklai Fairtex and Attachai Fairtex make the Fairtex name hard to forget.
Fairtex is continually evolving their equipment designs. But this isn’t a out-with the old, in with the new type development. Careful research and engineering goes into their product development, so that their designs can stand the test of time. As the sport and needs of athletes develop, so does the range of equipment Fairtex has come to offer. They boast a wide selection of styles to suit a variety of international training and fighting styles.
Their traditional boxing glove (BGV1) is a Thai style glove, with a compact compartment and shorter cuff. Thai style boxing gloves are ideal for catching and blocking kicks, and for clinch training. Fairtex generally uses more dense padding than other Muay Thai brands. This is what makes their gloves known for a good “pop” on heavy bags and pads. Fairtex continues to release special edition versions of their classic gloves, so you can keep the equipment you know and trust when grabbing a fresh pair.
Also known for their kick pads and banana bags, this brand is continually releasing new designs for sparring protection. They truly are “Engineered for Top Performance”.
