ArmourBite® employs multi-patented technology. The performance is proven. The advantages are undeniable.
Independent, peer-reviewed studies conducted at some of the nation’s top universities and research centers show that ArmourBite® works. Patented and scientifically proven, ArmourBite helps athletes train harder and perform better than ever before.

  • Increases Strength
    With improved airflow and less stress, ArmourBite is proven to increase strength by an average of 17% with the ArmourBite Mouthpiece and 12% with the ArmourBite Mouthguard.
  • Increases Endurance
    ArmourBite opens airways, resulting in up to 25% less lactic acid build-up after 30 minutes of intense exercise.
  • Speeds Up Reaction Time
    Athletes have been shown to respond faster when wearing ArmourBite. Clinical trials show improved response times to both auditory cues and visual cues.
  • Reduces Athletic Stress
    Excess cortisol causes stress and fatigue. ArmourBite decreases cortisol levels, so you perform better.
  • Reduces Impact
    When the jaw suffers an impact, energy can be transmitted to the head, which can cause concussions. The ArmourBite Mouthguard reduces the effects of G-Force impact to the jaw by up to 20%.

No one ever told you that your jaw could helpyou perform better.
That’s because no one knew. Hundreds of years ago, a few people were on to something: Ancient Greek athletes who bit down on leather straps for an edge during competition; Viking and Roman warriors who clamped down on leather bits for focus on the battlefield. They knew something worked, but the concept itself never evolved. Until now.

ArmourBite® has been engineered to help unlock an athlete’s hidden power and potential.
UA Performance Mouthwear™ introduces an entirely new category of sports equipment – ArmourBite®. ArmourBite® Mouthpieces and ArmourBite® Mouthguards are safe and custom built. Now, athletes in any sport — from football to golf to running — can capitalize on innovative technology that makes you stronger, faster, better.

Whether you want to improve your game or you need added protection in contact sports, Under Armour Performance MouthwearTM gives every athlete a competitive edge.
