THE AIRWAAV PERFORMANCE MOUTHPIECE
The AIRWAAV™ Performance Mouthpiece represents 15 years of research and development conducted with elite athletes and cadets at the Citadel to perfect the most efficient way of opening the airway and optimizing performance.
We champion high intensity and endurance athletes in their quests for personal accomplishments and achievements.
We believe high intensity and endurance athletes work harder and make more sacrifices. We will do all we can to support these athlete communities: the competitive athletes themselves and the organizations, gyms, events and retailers who support them and are them simultaneously.
OPEN UP AND EXCEL
CT Scans prove the mouthpiece increases the width of your airway an average of 9%.
HOW TO USE AIRWAAV
It’s important to understand that your tongue is a muscle and this device will help train and position your tongue to allow you to optimize your performance. You will experience the benefits just by wearing AIRWAAV™ during workouts and training.
