Everything we do, we believe in challenging the status quo when it comes to apparel. We believe in thinking differently. The way we challenge this status quo is by making our apparel functional and performance focused for each athlete, we just happen to be great motivators and inspire through our brand ethos.
A British company founded in 2013 by two track and field athletes, Symon Woan and Paul Whittle, who pulled their inspiration and knowledge from their background as athletes and designers, whilst being endorsed with confidence by Olympic and World Champions. Our vision and philosophy is to create the best products money can buy. We focus on the fabric performance of all our apparel, to ensure that people associate our brand with premium quality and fit.
The brand started with one cotton t-shirt design and mindset, to make all athletes better with a strong motivational ethos. From here it advanced from cotton to technical performance fabrics that offered functionality, but also retained the strong brand identity.
Black Mamba Elite’s mottos ‘#MambaMentality’ and ‘#TeamMamba’ have not only been embraced in the UK, but also worldwide with a strong social media presence. We pride ourselves on the fact customers feel part of our team when they purchase any item online, or through our stockists.
ITS ALL THE NAME:
The black mamba itself has a reputation for being a powerful, athletic and swift predator. We want you embrace these traits as soon as you wear our apparel. To feel stronger, focused, and attack your training or challenge. This ‘mentality’ as a collective is what forms a group known as #TeamMamba. ‘M.A.M.B.A‘ itself stands for Mind-Above-Matter-Beats-Anything, and we believe everyone can be better with the right mindset, motivationand desire to improve.
