Grenade Gloves Inc is a manufacturer of snowboard gloves/mittens. Founded by professional snowboarders Matt and Danny Kass in 2001, the company specializes in a product line aimed at snowboarders and motocross riders: gloves, outerwear, apparel, footwear, and accessories. The company's headquarters are located in Portland, Oregon.
Grenade built its first glove in 2001 and has quickly expanded into a lifestyle image. The Grenade logo was added to a full line of streetwear, stickers, and accessories soon followed by technical snowboard outerwear. Collaborations have been a big part of Grenade's designs and expansion. They have had successful collaborations with The Metal Mulisha, Hart & Huntington, and Sullen. The growth and success of the Kass brothers' vision for a genuine snowboard product that had not lost touch with the consumer was evident in 2006 when Grenade Gloves generated $5.5 million in sales. In 2008, Grenade broke into the footwear industry designing a wide variety of styles that brandish their popular logo. Recently, Grenade has grown into the Motocross Industry and in 2010 created a full line of MX gloves, technical gear, and apparel.
