Welcome to Phantom Athletics : About Us!
Phantom Athletics is one leading brand for martial arts and fitness equipment from Salzburg. Our founders, Dominique and Nicolas Wenger, were active martial artists themselves and founded the brand in 2010 Phantom MMA founded in Salzburg, Austria. For the love of sport, products were created by athletes for athletes. Today we sell to over 100 countries worldwide.
The beginnings of Phantom MMA
Thanks to excellent quality and the cooperation with Willy Steinky von Groundandpound.de, Germany's largest martial arts portal, the brand was accepted directly in the German-speaking martial arts scene. From the beginning there was cooperation with (martial arts) athletes and events, such as GMC or Respect FC in focus.
Phantom MMA becomes Phantom Athletics
In 2012 the brand was rebranded to Phantom Athletics to mma other sports such as Boxing, Muay Thai and BJJ to use. "Athletics" has since served as an umbrella term for performance-oriented (combat) sports.
The Phantom Athletics logo
The Phantom Athletics logo was designed in 2012 and remains in use to this day in the same form. The meaning of the two variants:
- Left image: The more commonly used variant of the logo includes the lettering of the company name " Phantom Athletics " over which a shadowy representation of the two eyes of a Phantom mask can be seen.
- Right picture: In rare cases, a "mask only" logo is used, which shows the two eyes of a Phantom mask without the " Phantom Athletics " lettering.
Development of innovative products
One of the most significant developments in our history was that patented Phantom training mask, which we developed in 2015 and presented at the ISPO in Munich in 2016.
This unique mask strengthens the respiratory muscles and improves the fitness of athletes. It enables you to increase your endurance and performance and to exceed your limits.
In the following year, the Phantom training mask was able to directly replace the well-known ISPO Award as the most innovative fitness device 2017/18 win and have since attracted a lot of interest from the media and countless sports:
