The company is doing incredible things to redefine and push holistic wellness, so it is an exciting and logical partnership for me and investment partners in Symphony Ventures.”
Other new athlete-investors include 2x NBA All-Star Jayson Tatum, 2x PGA TOUR Champion Tony Finau, 3x NBA Champion Klay Thompson, NBA Champion Khris Middleton, 6x MLB All-Star Nolan Arenado, MLB All-Star Matt Chapman, 4x MLB All-Star Justin Upton, World Series Champion Dexter Fowler, The Masters Champion Sergio Garcia, Professional BMX Athlete Nigel Sylvester, Master Trainer and Performance Specialist Joe Holder, top gaming personality Nicholas Kolcheff, known as NICKMERCS, and more.

Global Growth and Holistic High-Performance Wellness Brand Evolution
Hyperice recently announced a new stage of global growth as the company evolves into a holistic high-performance wellness brand. The multi-prong transformation, led by Hyperice’s recent acquisition of mental wellness company Core, its third acquisition in the last 18 months, is accompanied by a new brand identity and global brand campaign, and anchored by a suite of new products and industry-first technologies.
Among the new technology advancements include the world's first portable contrast therapy device, Hyperice X, and new generations of Hyperice’s wildly popular Hypervolt and Vyper lines, including the Hypervolt 2, Hypervolt 2 Pro, Vyper 3 and Vyper Go.
- Hyperice X: Last month, Hyperice introduced its latest innovation and the world's first portable contrast therapy device. Hyperice X creates a localized cycle of alternating heat and cold to the knee area for recovery and rehabilitation. Hyperice X will be available globally beginning in 2022.
- Hypervolt 2: The Hypervolt 2 offers noticeable updates from the original, including an improved ergonomic design and reduced weight. Three speeds of powerful percussion help give muscles the relief they’ve been asking for, every day.
- Hypervolt 2 Pro: With the Hypervolt 2 Pro, users will get the same powerful percussion massage therapy that the world’s best athletes have, right in the palm of their hand. Five speeds, set by a new adjustable dial, provide relief to stiff muscles, so users can train and recover like a pro.
- Vyper 3: All systems activated. The Vyper 3 vibrating roller’s updated design and three speeds help to prime and warm-up the body with a powerful vibrating massage.
- Vyper Go: The next iteration of Hyperice’s “Go” line. Following the release of the Hypervolt Go in 2020, the Vyper Go is a portable, vibrating roller that helps activate muscles, so users can feel their best before activity at home or on the go.
The Vyper 3 is now available in Europe and the United States, and the Hypervolt 2, Hypervolt 2 Pro and Vyper Go are now available in Australia, Canada, China, Europe, New Zealand and the United States with other markets to follow.
Hyperice’s new modern approach and reimagined product innovation allows Hyperice to reimagine how it serves a broader audience of athletes and helps people everywhere do the things they love, and do it more.
