Redefining fencing
for a new generation.

Understanding the design priorities of contemporary athletes was essential to developing a road-map to bring an exciting sport back into the spotlight.

Competitive fencing has been an international sport for hundreds of years; present in every modern summer Olympics since the very first in Athens, 1896.

Despite this pedigreed past, a lack of innovation in gear design has dramatically stymied fencing’s ability to grow and enjoy the adoption rate of many other contemporary athletics.

This existential crisis to the future of the sport prompted the creation of a new brand, Radical, which approached MTWO to help design and launch an all new line of fencing gear that would break from tradition and focus on the needs of the athlete - bringing 21st century style, function, materials and technology to the category. 

The patented flagship Liberty rolling bag is a stylish, innovative evolution of the traditional fencing bag.  Liberty is perfect for traveling but it's loaded with features and has enough space for any athlete.  A proprietary low-profile, lightweight wheel system shaves ounces and keep the Liberty under the maximum allowable weight for airline checked baggage.

With easy top-loading and side panel access, Liberty includes a spacious multi-compartment interior with an intelligent, reconfigurable divider system, extra-large storage capacity, and a bright lining to help keep items from getting lost inside a dark bag.

Ultra-strong padded straps, separate compartments for blades, apparel, masks, shoes, gloves and body cords are all integrated into the bag along with exterior accessory pocket for quick-access items and water bottles.  All the materials are high-performance, lightweight and colors can be custom spec'd for team gear.  

The Sorcerer is a sexy, streamlined, convertible that transforms in seconds from a compact, lightweight sports messenger bag to a full length three-weapon fencing bag. The Sorcerer not only transforms in size and shape to handle essential gear, it can also stand upright for easy loading and even fit within the Liberty for easy storage/transport on the road.

The Sorcerer's best trick lies in the the simplicity of design that makes switching from casual messenger to weapons bag as simple as folding over the "cap".  It's a slim, tailored design that confidently translates unique functionality into a compelling styling direction.  The Sorcerer is offered in a range of colors and features water repellent, high-durability materials along with plenty of interior and exterior storage pockets to keep things organized.  An ergonomic and adjustable cross body carry system is comfortable and supportive.  The Sorcerer is made in the U.S.A. and is patent pending.
