FAQ

Find answers to the most frequently asked questions regarding Vehement, sustainable fight gear and our mission in general.

Are you looking for companies that can produce fight gear for you?

No. Please do not contact us if you are a manufacturer of boxing equipment.

Can I become a reseller?

No, we distribute all our products on our own and will not change that. Sadly we cannot offer any wholesale prices for resellers, online shops, gyms and so on. There is also no affiliate program. Our website is the only place you can buy our fight gear from.

Do you sponsor fighters?

Not very often. But if you fulfill the following requirements you can apply for free fight gear:

  • You are a professional fighter, male or female, in the following events: MMA, boxing, BJJ, kickboxing, Thaiboxing, or comparable
  • You have at least 10,000 real, unique fans on one of these social media websites: Facebook, Twitter, Instagram or Tumblr
  • You are willing to give us a shout-out on those channels
  • You are willing to take photos with our fight gear – these can be amateur photos or even selfies

Send us a link to your social media channels or your website at hi@vhmnt.com

We are a magazine/blog/website and want free fight gear for a review.

We get a lot of requests for free samples, sadly we can’t give away as much as we want to. Our gear is limited and shipping is expensive. You can apply for free samples if you fulfill the following requirements:

  • You have at least 10,000 real, unique fans on one of these social media websites: Facebook, Twitter, Instagram or Tumblr
  • You plan to publish an article about us

Do you plan to produce rash guards, gis, pads…?

Yes, we are planning a complete range of fight equipment for 2016. The only way to stay current on the release dates is via our Facebook page and our newsletter.

Do you offer international shipping?

We only ship to the US, Canada and the EU. We are a German company with a warehouse in Berlin and one in Los Angeles. Caution: until November 2015 we are totally out of the stock in the EU and only ship to the US and Canada. We send a newsletter out once the gear is back in stock in the EU. Sorry for keeping you waiting!

Can I visit you in your warehouses?

No, our office is in Berlin, Germany. Our warehouses are fulfillment centers where no Vehement employees work. The head office in Berlin is not open to the public, but if you want to meet us – write us an email and we can arrange a meeting in Berlin. We love to meet our customers. Feel free to invite us to your party, too.

Why would I need vegan boxing equipment?!

You need it and this planet needs it. Leather is one of the worst materials, killing hundreds of millions of animals every year. These millions of animals suffer and are slaughtered brutally. Additionally, this type of farming destroys our nature in the worst way possible. Industrial breeding consumes 50% of all crops worldwide. It consumes most of the drinking water on this planet. It pollutes our water with acid, it destroys our ozone layer with gas.

And leather is not a good material for martial arts equipment anyway. It’s expensive, rough and unhygienic. It becomes brittle over time and is not washable. It smells because it absorbs your sweat. It’s an outdated material, not suitable for full contact sports. You need to replace your equipment periodically as the cushioning effect of the padding decreases with wear, making the long-lasting effects of leather meaningless. Modern materials like Polyurethane (PU) are far more eco-friendly and reasonable. We don’t live in the stone-age anymore.

Is everyone working for Vehement vegan?

No. Veganism is just one of our many ambitions and we do not exclude people who are not vegan.

Are you a political company? And if so, are you right-wing or left-wing?

You wouldn´t believe how often we get asked if we are Nazis because we make fight gear and are from Germany…. Vehement is not a political company. We believe in compassion. That includes a strict refusal of any ignorance like nationalism, racism, homophobia, sexism and such. Our mission includes equality, sustainability, animal-rights and philanthropy. We support anti-fascist actions and pro animal liberation causes.
