  • 90% Shock Absorption
  • Fair production
  • Experience maximum comfort in eco-friendly and skin-safe fabrics.

    We take pride in the materials we use to make our products. Our base collection is made from recycled nylon and polyester, sourced from waste such as old fishing nets and industrial plastics.

    These fabrics help reduce waste and are certified with the OEKO-TEX® Standard 100, guaranteeing skin safety.

    Soft and stretchable are two fabric characteristics you will feel on your skin. Knowing the fabrics have been independently tested for harmful substances and are harmless to human health is reassuring. Wearing fabrics you know have helped clean out waste of our oceans is the cherry on top of the superhero feel of our products.

  • The impact foam used in AAVA sounds like magic but is actually science. It is remarkably soft and flexible, only 4,8 mm thick, but capable of absorbing 90% of impact energy, stiffening to form a protective shell when under pressure or subject to external impact. It eliminates the bulk that most protective apparel has without compromising protection and its open-cell technology makes it suitable for repeated impact protection. The material will remain effective and maintain its performance hit after hit. Plus, it features Microban® antimicrobial technology to inhibit the growth of stain- and odour-causing bacteria, mould and mildew.

  • At AUAU Athletics®, we take pride in our production process and the
    working conditions of our production partner's employees. We source all of our materials from Italy, and our final products are produced in Portugal under fair working conditions that pay fair living wages.

    company that values sustainability and ethical production, as well as
    gender-diverse and female athletes.
