NO ONE EVER TOLD YOU THAT YOUR JAW COULD HELP
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 here worked, but the concept itself never evolved. Until now.
Under Armour Performance Mouthwear™ has been engineered to unlock your power and potential.
It’s all in you, but blocked by one of the human body’s instinctive reflex systems – teeth-clenching. With safe, custom-built UA Performance Mouth wear, athletes in any sport from football to golf to hockey, can capitalize on innovation that makes you stronger, faster and better. Whether you need protection in contact sports or you just want to improve your game.
Under Armour Performance Mouthwear™ , with ArmourBite™ Technology, gives every athlete an edge.

UA Performance Mouthpieces deliver a host of physical benefits that help you train harder and compete at a higher level than ever before. UA Performance Mouthguards provide those same benefits, with the added benefit of customized dental protection.
HOW IT WORKS
You are “hard-wired” to clench your jaw.
When you train and compete, your natural reaction is to clench your jaw. It’s part of the “fight or flight” wiring of your brain. Your clenched jaw and teeth compress your temporomandibular joint (TMJ), triggering the release of excess amounts of performance-sapping hormones (like cortisol) that produce stress, fatigue and distraction. UA Performance Mouthwear helps the human body help itself by unlocking the power of the jaw. Patented ArmourBite™ Technology prevents your teeth from clenching and pivots your jaw forward to relieve pressure on the TMJ. Gone are the excess negative hormones and the energy-draining effects, so the body can now unleash its full potential.
Independent studies conducted at some of the nation’s top universities and research centres have proven the undeniable advantages of UA Performance Mouthwear.
