XGEN Fencing is an electronic fencing apparel and equipment company dedicated to revolutionizing the sport of fencing through new technologies.
Current fencing technology rests on ideas developed in the 1930s, and we think it's time for and update. Together with our partner NASYCON, an Italian fencing equipment developer, it is our belief that embracing modern technology solutions will reduce the cost of the sport, improve its visual impact and beauty, and radically increase the understanding for users and spectators around the rules and scoring.
We accomplish these by:
- Reducing The Cost Of Fencing: By removing unnecessary external pieces of equipment such as reels, external machines and wires we will radically reduce the cost for business owners and programs.
- Lowering Maintenance and Upkeep Time: Removing springs, wires and external equipment will reduce the amount of time required to keep fencing equipment working over time.
- Improved Visual Impact: Removing external equipment will remove the confusion generated by the numerous wires and plugs running around fencers who are competing. Putting the lights on the athletes and in the weapons will make the scoring more obvious and remove the need to look from fencers to light machines and then to referee to understand who scored.
- Improved Understanding: Utilizing technology such as accelerometers to track the movement of the weapons will allow the sport to utilize data for the first time in its history to aid in training, coaching and understanding with what is happening during the bout.
