Bliss Protection was founded 2006 by Matthias Ascherl and his crew. The guys at Bliss – all of them are passionated mountain bikers, skiers and snowboarders – were not satisfied with the current body armor on the market. Every product was – or even still is – too bulky and let you look like “Robo-Cop”. It was time to do something new, something different, something better!Bliss Protection differs from other brands. Our main intention is to make it easier to follow your passion safer and more comfortable without compromising freedom of movement. Every mountain biker, skier and snowboarder knows that feeling after a couple of laps, under thick plastic body armor, where you sweat a lot and step by step it becomes more uncomfortable. You have to take a break, dry your equipment, or peel your armor off and ride without protection. At Bliss, that is the wrong way!

Matthias the Bliss owner had a vision in the back of his mind: a revolutionary body armor. So it was time to get on the drawing board. After five years of doing R&D in the Bliss S2 lab, the ARG products were invented. They combined Armourgel a great new material and included tons of design innovations to create revolutionary body armor, kneepads and elbow pads. The ARG protection is insanely thin, so it gives you a great freedom of movement. At the same time it is super flexible and breathable. All this attributes are combined in a CE level 2 body armor creating a unique market position for Bliss. It figures, this is exactly what action sports addicted people all over the planet are looking for.

Bliss created a new synergy between active materials and innovative design, so Bliss products became pretty popular with ambitious athletes. The bike industry and the media recognized this innovative product pretty soon. Lets put it in a nutshell: Bliss Protection was proudly awarded the Eurobike Award 2012 and the Enduro Design & Innovation Award 2013 and  2014 twice ! Also a bunch of the best mountain bikers, free skiers ands snowboarders like Nicolas Lau, Felix Wiemers, Flor Corzelius and André Wagenknecht trust in Bliss. These guys are in need of products which give them a competitive edge with great freedom of movement and flexibility.’Making the sports you love a bit safer and even more comfortable and also supplying the world’s best athletes with the products they need is what moves us, it’s what we have in common and it’s what we stand for.’ Bliss Protection.
