Why the name ‘VIRUS’?

A constant question that we are always asked is ‘Why the name VIRUS?’ so here’s your answer…

Passion is what initially started the brand, the dream of one man combined with three different athletes took VIRUS on the road.   A Motocross rider, Stand Up Paddle Boarder and a Combat Fighter took their years of knowledge and experience into creating the compression brand. They took their nitty-gritty ideas of perfect active wear and created VIRUS.

These four guys came together with an abundance of passion for sports. Their sports consumed them like an uncontrollable virus. This is where the VIRUS name stems from; the creators of VIRUS were so devoted and consumed by their sports that it resembled a virus, therefore the VIRUS brand fuels their passion.

VIRUS is made by athletes for athletes.
