IRVINE, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Hyperice, a global high-performance wellness brand, today announced two new products within their heat therapy category, Venom Go and Venom 2, alongside HyperHeat™ technology for the fastest, most consistent and even distribution of heat to relieve sore, stiff muscles and promote wellness. Venom Go advances the capabilities of the Venom line further with the ability to deliver heat and vibration spot treatment in more areas, such as the neck, shoulder, upper and lower back, calf and forearm. Designed with flexibility in mind, Venom Go can be utilized in more environments than ever before, with unmatched versatility and customizations, delivering instant muscle relief wherever the body needs it most. Venom 2 is the most advanced heat and massage wrap on the market and carries on the legacy built by the original Venom line, which revolutionized the traditional heating pad for consumers.
“The new Venom Go is a revolutionary product for us as it widens the application of our Venom technology and addresses the need for a powerful heat and vibration solution for spot treatment,” said Jim Huether, CEO of Hyperice. “It’s been six years since the debut of heat and vibration technology from Hyperice, we’ve now significantly enhanced the Venom user experience and added our patented HyperHeat™ technology, all while staying true to the core elements of the original product that made people fall in love with it. The Venom line is one of our fastest growing product lines, and we expect this trend to continue in the U.S. and throughout the world.”
INTRODUCING VENOM GO
The Venom Go is a heat and vibration wearable that consists of a control pod that magnetically connects to an adhesive pad and is applied directly to the skin. Venom Go pads are reusable approximately 20 to 40 times each (depending on placement on body and any sweat, lotion or oil that may be on the skin) and cover 13.5 square inches, allowing users to receive direct treatment to more areas of the body than ever before. Users can select from 3 levels of heat and 3 levels of vibration via easy to use button control on the pod. Sore and stiff muscles can now receive instant treatment, with Venom Go reaching up to 113℉ (45°C) in 90 seconds after applied to the skin - or just 20 seconds prior to being applied to the skin.
The Venom Go control pod and pad weighs a mere 0.2 lbs, and holds a battery life of up to 60 minutes on a full charge, with a standard session running for 10 minutes. The Venom Go is charged via USB connection and is TSA approved for convenient use while traveling. Utilizing Bluetooth connectivity, the Venom Go is controlled via the Hyperice App, with users having the ability to sync multiple pods to deliver tailored spot treatments across different areas of the body at once for a unique heat and vibration therapy experience.
“Recovery plays a key role in performing your best every day,” said Robin Arzón, Hyperice Athlete-Investor, and Peloton Vice President of Fitness Programming. “Venom has always been a staple product in my warmup and recovery routines. Vibration and heat are both critical components in the equation. The new Venom Go allows me to be even more targeted with muscle recovery to keep me moving at my best so I can help others move at their best too.”
The introduction of the Venom Go comes on the heels of the introduction of the Normatec Go (currently only available in the US), and now provides a holistic suite of products within Hyperice’s Go series (Hypersphere Mini, Hypervolt Go 2, Vyper Go, Normatec Go). Portable and mobile adaptations of each product line offer users maximum flexibility to experience the benefits of warm up and recovery technology in more places, and at more price points, than ever before.
“With the Venom Go, users will be able to experience the same benefits they have grown to know and love in the Venom line, but in many more targeted areas for relief,” added Huether. “This product is amazing for anyone with soreness, stiffness or pain in targeted areas, and furthers our mission to help as many people as possible improve their daily lives through recovery and movement.”
INTRODUCING VENOM 2
The Venom 2, which comes in versions for the back, leg and shoulder (left or right), has more-than-doubled its treatment area, increasing the overall heating surface by 111% (94 square inches), and is encased in a new silicone surface for easier cleaning. Venom 2 delivers up to a three-hour battery life on a full charge, and heats to 131℉ (55°C) in just one minute, which is four times faster than the original Venom, and six times faster than a traditional heating pad. Users will also experience a lighter version of the Venom, as the weight drops by more than 23% from the original version, now weighing just two lbs.
“Heat therapy is such a critical component of my routine, from preparing for a game and getting my shoulder loose, to treating sore muscles in my arm between practices,” said Patrick Mahomes, Hyperice Athlete-Investor and Super Bowl Champion. “From pregame, to the training facility and home, the Venom line allows me to optimize my performance. The new Venom 2 improves the experience and I know will be a popular tool in the locker room.”
“As a footballer, I need to ensure that my body is ready to endure the rigors that come with a 90-minute match,” said Erling Haaland, Hyperice Athlete-Investor and global footballer. “Heat therapy is very important in ensuring my body is properly prepared and ready to go ahead of training or kickoff, and equally important in the time between match-days. I’m always looking for ways to give myself a competitive edge, and with Venom 2’s heating time, I feel the benefits quicker than ever before, and can be ready to take the pitch faster with my body ready to go.”
Through Bluetooth® connectivity, the Venom 2 is controlled via the Hyperice App, unlocking more routines to maximize and customize time, heat and vibration while using the device.
With the launch of Venom Go and the Venom 2, Hyperice also introduces their new HyperHeat™ technology which delivers a faster, more consistent distribution of heat across a greater surface area, allowing for a more premium experience for users.
“In 2015 we were getting requests from NBA players for a product that could heat the body pregame and keep the body warm when they came out of the game. Our answer was the Venom, the first heat and vibration wearable device, released in 2017,” said Anthony Katz, Hyperice Founder. “Over the past five years, the user base for the Venom has expanded far beyond performance athletes to everyday people who use the Venom to manage pain and soreness. The Venom 2 is a complete redesign and upgrade from the original model- every aspect of the product and experience have been improved.“
The Venom Go ($149; £159; €175) and Venom 2 line ($249; £269; €299) are available in North America as well as globally across all countries and regions where Hyperice is sold. For more information, please visit hyperice.com country-specific sites.
