The impetus for the formation of Gearbox was fueled by a vision to create superior, technology-based sporting equipment and at the core of all efforts, implement a grass-root model.
Gearbox was founded in California by Rafael Filippini. As a professional racquetball player and with over 25 years in the composites industry, he worked to hone his skills, creating revolutionary technologies while simultaneously fulfilling his dream to create a leading technology brand created by an athlete for athletes.
Almost 15 years later, Gearbox continues to be synonymous with excellent quality, outstanding durability and patented cutting edge technologies
Since founded in 2007, Gearbox has proudly expanded from racquetball into other sports including pickleball, paddleball, and squash.
Gearbox wants players of all levels to experience first-hand how its quality products can improve their game and continue to support their love of sport. With our advanced collections of racquets, paddles, edgy apparel, and high-quality accessories, the future is limitless.
