Model: Training Mask
The original Elevation Training Mask was a revolution in the world of elite MMA competition because it helped recreate the effects of high-altitude training and, as a result increased athletes' endurance and lung capacity.
Elevation has since developed an improved version of their mask: smaller, lighter, more flexible and comfortable, but with the same qualities as the original. This new version has been named Elevation Training Mask 2.0 and is suitable to wear during grappling sparring.
Just like the original, the Elevation Training Mask 2.0 is designed to simulate the effects of training at high altitudes, something which elite athletes do in order to boost their performance when they compete at sea level. The benefits of high-altitude training include improved strength, speed and endurance.
The mask regulates the amount of air you can breath in so that your oxygen intake is decreased, leading to changes inside the body. The production of red blood cells and new capillaries (small blood vessels) increases oxygen transfer from the lungs to the rest of the body in a more efficient manner.
It is therefore perfect for any elite athlete including cyclists, triathletes, cross training and functional training athletes, etc.
The Elevation Training Mask 2.0 comes with:
- A rubber mask for placing over the nose and mouth.
- Valves and filters for air regulation.
- A black sleeve for securing the mask.
- A head strap for extra secure fit.
- An instruction book explaining the different filter combinations for a higher or lower altitude effect.

How to choose the correct mask size
We recommend taking exact measurements using the method described below to determine the correct mask size for your facial structure
Measure from the centreline of your face at your mouth to at least 1 inch (2.5 cm) past the outside corner of your mouth (you might want to ask a friend to assist you). The outer edge of the Training Mask should sit against your face at 1 to 1.5 inches (2.5 to 3.8 cm) outside the corner of your mouth.
Double the measurement you have taken and match to the best fit from the below:
- S = 10,2 cm or 4 inches / 45 kg - 70 kg.
- M = 11,4 cm or 4.5 inches / 70 kg - 115 kg.
- L = 12,7 cm or 5 inches / 115 kg - 140 kg.
