What we do
We do Team Sports
Although aesthetics are well entrenched in their traditions, each sport demands the same degree of performance and innovation. That’s why TACTIX is inspired by the different sport communities we’ve been part of over the last few years.
TACTIX combines more than 15 years of experience and a deep knowledge of the multiple aspects of different sports, as well as a technological approach that allows exploring innovative and hybrid solutions.
We do Action Sports
Our expertise in contact sports such as hockey and football naturally lead us into the development of action sports products. Even though protection is paramount, the product should be designed with the comfort of the user in mind. Weight, ventilation and articulation have to be balanced in order to create a product that performs for the most demanding athletes. We also make sure to meet or surpass the norms and standards of the industries’ most thorough tests.
Being active persons ourselves, we know the frustration that comes with the need to slow down when your injured or recovering from a medical procedure. Our goal is to make sure we get the athletes back on their feet as quickly as possible without compromising the fit and the amount of support required to do so.
We’ve been working with the biggest brand in the industry over the years and we successfully developed award winning products for almost every field. We test our products with professional athletes to make sure we bring the best solution to the market.
We do Footwear
We’ve always been kind of sneakerheads. Since the very beginning, footwear design and development was always at the core of TACTIX’s knowledge and expertise. We worked with many major brands on various types of footwear, inside and out. From protective boots to running shoes, from the boat to the trail or the mountainside, offering style, comfort or protection.
We integrate innovation, technology and performance into every piece of footwear we develop and at every stage of the process. We believe footwear design success stems from understanding the market and the brand culture.
We create a design language starting with a high level of inspiration, then we go deep, get creative, and develop a unique angle to sculpt from. We are true shoe sculptors.
We do Wearables
We are a team of tech-heads waiting to get our hands on new and exciting ideas. Combining our expertise in soft and hard goods, we go above and beyond, pushing further the boundaries of product development in audio and VR.
Wearable technology has become a growing demand and we approach each new idea with a creative edge, which is incorporated into the product.
With our background in sports and activewear, we have a strong and experienced approach for fit, form and incorporation onto the body. We design wearability, durability and performance.
Thanks to our knowledge of cultural codes and our extensive exploration of different materials and technology, we are experts in tailoring new technologies.
We do Outdoor
We are truly passionate about the outdoors. Designing this type of product is a simple extension of our way of life! The sense of community is strong among outdoor enthusiasts and we are proud to contribute.
Our passion allowed us to share our know-how with important brands like Salomon, Merrell, Patagonia, Timberland, Tecnica and many more. From shoes to helmets, our expertise in form-fitting products forged TACTIX’s reputation and now allows us to share our knowledge to the fast-expanding military sector.
We do Military
Our experience in sports was always body related and about performance, lightweight materials, heat management and much more. Meanwhile, soldiers have expressed the need for better designed products, and the military industry is now looking into sporting goods for answers.
We’ve worked on projects related to every aspect of the soldier's body, from helmet design, gloves for chemical protection, gas mask harness, ballistic garments and footwear. We have deep input on functional, fit and protection innovation, from user relation to styling considerations.
We are about user oriented product design.

We do Combat Sports
Combat sports is where our two main fields meet. Having a product that fits seamlessly with a specific degree of protection is key in order to create your perfect combat companion. Freedom of movement and high resistance to wear will let you throw punches all day long. You’ll be down on the mat way before our products throw in the towel.
We do Safety
Thanks to our experience in sports goods, we are able to offer durable, performant and technical solutions for work environments where protection is needed.
Taking into account specific certifications and specifications, our approach and design process is built in order to work with constraints and norms to abide by.
We collaborate closely with our clients to deliver what’s best for the safety of the workers.
