XGEN Fencing is an electronic fencing apparel and equipment company dedicated to revolutionizing the equipment of fencing through modernization.
The technology in fencing is based on a system developed in the 1930s and it is our belief that embracing modern technology solutions will reduce the cost of the sport, improve the visual impact and beauty of the sport, and radically increase the understanding for users and spectators around the rules and scoring.
We will accomplish these by:
- Reduce Cost: 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.
