CARBYNE is excited to launch a NOGI collaboration with 10th Planet Redlands that launches for pre-order on on CARBYNE's website starting on Monday, September 7, 2020 and concludes Sunday, September 20, 2020. The design was a meeting of the minds between CARBYNE founder and designer Shawn Williams and 10th Planet Redlands owner and head coach "Slick" Rick Marshall.
The NOGI kit was a clean design featuring a black design with yellow trim, which are two primary colors for the academy's logo. The background of the rashguard features subtle triangles while the sleeves have two stripes with a military style USA flag on the right bicep and a CARBYNE logo on the left bicep. The back neck area of the rashguard features a small yellow 10th Planet Redlands logo. The shorts are a very clean black and yellow design and can be worn on the mats for BJJ, kickboxing and mixed martial arts training.
The collaboration is part of CARBYNE's REVIVAL INITIATIVE where we partner with BJJ academies on the design and pre-order of NOGI kits to help the academies during these unprecedented and difficult times. The schools receives 50% of the revenue from each piece sold. The new gear also provides the academy's students with new gear that helps build team unity as academies reopen.
