INNOVATION / PERFORMANCE QUALITY / DESIGN

OUR DNA

Venum is an innovative brand, in continuous search for performance. It is not a question of recreating what already exists, but driving change, proposing new experiences day after day.

Why the name Venum?

The snake is an animal carrying strong symbolism. They are lively, often fatal, inspiring both fear and fascination. The name Venum refers to the poison administered by the snake at the time of a bite. The U replaced the O for graphical harmony and balance. From inception, Venum is very proud of its logo and it is undoubtedly linked to the brands success.

VENUM TRAINING CAMP

OUR CHALLENGES

BE VENUM EVERYWHERE

Far from stopping at the gates of sports halls, Venum has offered lifestyle collections with unique and innovative designs for several years already. Our goal is to show our tracksuits, down jackets, bombers or beach shorts to all fashion lovers looking for style and comfort. To rub shoulders with the giants of sportswear and prove that our fightwear has its place on the street.

THE FIGHT IS NEVER OVER

2018 marked a significant step for Venum: entering the realm of manufacturing professional boxing equipment. Our goal now is to replicate what has been done in Muay Thai or MMA by establishing ourselves as the world standard of boxing by offering boxing gloves of unrivalled quality.

The Rungis CrossFit box, VNM, has been a Venum Training Camp Paris affiliate since the end of 2018 and has one of the best European CrossFit teams: the Elite Competitor team! The first VNM Contest, national competition of CrossFit, takes place in 2019. This involvement with CrossFit highlights the brands position and its focus on developing real equipment for real athletes.

One of the hardest things is to become a champion, but remaining one is the real challenge… One of the major challenges for Venum is to continue to being a real "trendsetter" of the combat sports industry. Boosting trends, innovating and staying the benchmark in MMA, Jiu-Jitsu, Muay Thai and Martial Arts is at the heart of our strategy.
