Optimize Your Performance With Airwaav

A mouthpiece engineered to improve strength, endurance, recovery, and mobility.

Increase Strength

AIRWAAV’s patented bite plate is engineered to optimally position the jaw and ensure full tooth contact during clenching. This specific contact plays a pivotal role in accelerating the body’s neuromuscular response. When an athlete clenches their jaw with AIRWAAV, it triggers a more immediate and powerful muscle engagement throughout the body. This heightened response effectively counters the body’s instinctive restraint on muscle usage, unlocking greater muscular force and power.

Increase Endurance

The AIRWAAV Performance Mouthpiece is designed to enhance endurance by optimizing breathing efficiency during exercise. When the user gently clenches onto the mouthpiece and positions their tongue downward and forward beneath the front intake bar, a reflex is triggered within the body. This reflex action facilitates the opening of the airway, contributing to a reduction in respiratory rate by up to 20%. The decrease in respiratory rate lowers lactic acid production and perceived exertion, allowing athletes to sustain higher intensity levels for longer periods of time.

Faster Recovery

Scientifically proven to reduce cortisol levels by up to 50% after exercise, AIRWAAV plays a crucial role in accelerating recovery times for athletes. Cortisol, often referred to as the stress hormone, can impede the body’s healing process. By substantially lowering these levels, AIRWAAV aids in faster muscle recovery, reduces fatigue, and prepares athletes for their next performance more efficiently.

Improve Mobility

By clenching onto the mouthpiece, there is a reduction in muscle tension, or muscle tone, which plays a pivotal role in improving mobility. This relaxation of muscles is especially beneficial during movements requiring rotation in the neck, shoulders, hips, or trunk. The improved mobility allows for a greater range of motion and fluidity in movements.


The innovative AIRWAAV bite plate is designed to absorb clenching while guiding optimal tongue positioning during high stress exertion.



The AIRWAAV PX1 Performance Mouthpiece is designed with an open bite channel – ideal for athletes who prefer a relaxed fit during use. The PX1 is often preferred for strength training, CrossFit, strongman, baseball & softball, golf, tennis, basketball, and HIIT.


The AIRWAAV PX2 Performance Mouthpiece is designed with a narrow bite channel with form-fitting bars for athletes who prefer a snug fit. The added material under the bite plate absorbs heavier clenching during high stress moments. The PX2 is commonly the preferred option for distance running, cycling, triathlon, track & field, rowing, functional fitness, yoga, and pilates.



The AIRWAAV RX1 Recovery Mouthpiece is designed to work while you sleep. Our patented Reflex Technology™ activates the tongue’s natural response during sleep to direct the tongue forward to open the airway and prevent interrupted breathing. The result is better sleep quality and faster recovery.

It’s nice to be able to bite down on soemthing when you need to feel strong, powerful, and dig deeper. AIRWAAV gives me an edge I need to push just a little bit harder without messing up my teeth and jaw.
