ATHLETE-LED DESIGN

TEST. ITERATE. REPEAT.

The only way to become the best is to work with the best. To create gear that’s built to perform at the highest levels, we collaborate with a team of some of the most obsessed and passionate athletes in the world – from pro CrossFitters to record-holding endurance runners – on the design, development, and testing of our gear. Ultimately, our goal is simple: to create gear worthy of the world’s top athletes.

Session Pant

PRODUCT LAUNCH

Designed to provide warmth without weight, the Session Pant is lightweight and breathable for every high-intensity training session from runs to conditioning. We worked closely with our athlete team through rounds of wear-testing to bring you your new go-to training pant. see more

Brian Mazza

"Growing up as an elite athlete I wish I could have had input on what works and what doesn’t with the gear I was training in. It’s a dream come true I can test, train, and have my voice heard - which allows me to continue to be the best athlete I can. I need to have complete trust in my gear, and Ten Thousand's testing process removes any unknown variables."

"To develop the upcoming Fall/Winter jackets, I received 3-5 samples of various fabrics, cuts, fits and features to test. I wore the jackets in the rain, snow, and wind, providing immediate feedback on how each prototype performed. I tested them hiking, mountain biking, trail running, and to/from the gym. I’m so confident that the final product will live up to the standards that I provided."

The Speed Project

FIELD TEST

If you try to make sense of The Speed Project the way you would a sanctioned race - route, water stations, Biofreeze booths, where to watch - you won’t be able to. That’s the entire point. When they say #NORULES they mean it. There’s only one goal - to get from Los Angeles to Las Vegas as fast as possible. Read On

MAKING OF: FIGHT SHORT

PRODUCT LAUNCH

Built in collaboration with Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu champions and members of the sport’s founding family, the Fight Short redefines modern gear for no-gi BJJ and meets the demands of other combat sports. With a relentless focus on durability, range of motion, and support, we designed the Fight Short to meet the distinct needs of our wear-testing team members whose expertise range across martial art forms and fighting styles. see more

Tideline Burner

FIELD TEST

When we designed our Set Short, our goal was to make a short that could easily transition between land and water. We didn’t want swim trunks that sort-of worked on land or a pair of shorts that would be awkward underwater. Check It Out

Ryan Hall

"When testing prototypes for the Distance Kit, I ran in and washed each style over and over to make sure it stood up to every workout. The design team is always more interested in my criticisms than they are my praises and have that "beginner's mind," always looking for small ways to tweak, fix, and troubleshoot. This is why their gear is the best on the market."

"As a professional CrossFit Athlete, I’ve tried what feels like every pair of shorts out there. Getting to sit down with Ten Thousand’s product team and share feedback on what I liked and didn’t like in the market, as well as their own product, and then watching them actually tweak design and fabric selection was an awesome experience. I’m stoked to see what they roll out next in the CrossFit space!"

MAKING OF: DISTANCE SHORT

With a relentless focus on lightness, range of motion, comfort, and fit inspired by the wants and needs of our wear testing team, we designed it to give our runners everything they need – but nothing they don’t. Simply, the ultra-lightweight and breathable Distance Short is built to meet the demands of the world record holders, ultra-marathoners, and run community icons that built it. read on

Seamless Shirt Feedback

CUSTOMER SURVEYS

Last month, 1,000 customers put our latest Field Test prototype to the test and through the wringer. We designed our Seamless Shirt in a way that we believed solves for the pain points of our competitors' offerings. But while we may think that, there's only one opinion that truly matters: yours.

Mike Aidala

"I was blown away by the gear testing process. I have never heard of a clothing company going above and beyond to make sure the clothes truly work for their athletes and customers. They don’t stop at “how does it fit” they want to know how every last seam, crease and stitch affects the gear. This is one reason I have only worn Ten Thousand since the first time I tried them 6 years ago."

Bobby Maximus

"When I helped test the Fight Short I put the various prototypes through hundreds of hours of training. I relayed my feedback and Ten Thousand took everything into account until the shorts were perfected. The result of that rigorous testing is a short that is built to stand the test of time."
