The Future of Jiu-Jitsu

ORIGIN RIFT BJJ GI - Made in America

We asked ourselves, what would we build if we started from scratch. If we stripped away cost, not having the right technology or machinery. If we said the only hurdle was our minds, what would we design for the sport of Jiu-Jitsu.

10,000 hours of gi manufacturing knowledge in one room, and a blank slate. We approached the equation with open minds. How does the body move on the ground? How does the body move when wrapped in the fabric? How does the fabric move against the vinyl mat? How do these three things work together? More importantly,  how do they work AGAINST one another? Where does it bind and how can we free your body from friction?

What fiber works best? How should it be woven? And most importantly, how should we map it, not just to the human form… how should it map to your body DURING DYNAMIC MOTION?

It started with the idea that to wrap a piece of paper around a sphere and get it smooth would be impossible. But taking that same paper and cutting strips will allow you to spiral the paper around the sphere, becoming smooth and streamlined. This concept led us in the direction of a multi panel, body mapping system called the ORIGIN™ Spiral Wrap Cut©. Which utilizes seven panels of fabric, starting from the spine, the panels spiral symmetrically around your body.

We also asked, how should it stretch, or should it stretch? If the fiber was right, if the yarn was right, if the textile was woven right, why would we need extra reinforcement panels? Can we make it stronger and lighter, stripped down, lightweight like a performance car?

The answer to all these questions took 12 months, undocumented hours of research and development, and 100,000 dollars in custom machinery. We didn’t know the answer until we could test the equation in physical form. The answer was… YES!

We developed a proprietary, pre-shrunk PolySynth© yarn, engineered to be 10x stronger than our existing yarn, and 100x stronger than the industry standard. When twisted, the hexagonal structure of the staple fibers interlock with one another, allowing moisture to to pass between the weave, but not get absorbed into the yarn itself. This would be the foundation for DragonWeave© GEN 3.

When the first fabric came off the loom, it was almost too good to be true. We abused it, washed it, dried it, and like Damascus steel, the fabric got better with time. We could say it was engineered, but that’s too technical, we could say it was forged, but that’s too literal. It’s the union of ideas, technology, engineering, bio-mechanics, and inspired by the art of Jiu-Jitsu itself. Simply put, the RIFT was SYNTHESIZED.

The culmination of 5 years of learning, weaving, manufacturing, bleeding, and training birthed not just a textile, but a product that should never exist. And the only reason it was created was because we decide to build a factory in the woods of Maine 5 years ago. The RIFT was born because it had to be.

All seams are locked together in such symmetry and flow, that the seams themselves terminate to a singular point. Watching the RIFT come together is like watching a Russian ballet. It’s so perfect that after the final stitch has been complete, not a single thread is left to trim.

SIZING GUIDELINES

The Rift Gi isn't just different, our sizing for this Gi has also changed.
The Rift will fit different from Origin Gis of the past.

We've based our patterns off of standard American sizing and because these Gis are an out of the box fit, there will be no shrinking of the product.

Therefore, it is important to order your Rift Gi based off of your standard T-Shirt or Jacket size.
These sizing guidelines should be used as a guide only, not an end-all.

For more information on sizing, please watch our sizing video.

Under 130 lbs - X-SMALL
5'4" - 5'7", 135-155 - SMALL
5'7" - 5'11", 160-185 - MEDIUM
5'7"- 6'0", 190 - 220 - LARGE
5'9 - 6'3", 225 - 240 - X-LARGE
5'9" - 6'4", 245 - 280 - 2X-LARGE
5'9" - 6'5", 285 - 315 - 3X-LARGE

NOTES: If you are under 5'10" and fit into the XL, 2XL or 3XL, please call the factory or send us a message and reference your order number to have your sleeves hemmed 2" per sleeve.

    2019 Rift gi

    Posted by Greg Brantner on Nov 28th 2019

    The first day I wore this gi to the gym, I had several training partners take notice. The quality is outstanding. It’s silky soft, yet super durable. It also dries exceptionally fast, taking it out of the washer it’s about 90% dry after the spin cycle. This gi gives you an extra level of comfort during training. I’ll be getting the white RIFT soon. To all those at ORIGIN, keep up the great work,, you all rock!

    2019 Black Rift Gi

    Posted by Brian Smith on Nov 23rd 2019

    What a wonderful Gi. I'm totally delighted with my purchase and my shopping experience with Origin. I had some questions on the sizing, so, I called and had my concerns answered quickly. I find the top is so soft, it's like a bathrobe, but due to the intricate weave design, it's indestructible. Love that! The pants are super rough, yet, comfortable to wear. My training partners have difficulty grabbing the pants. Love that, too! In training, the Black Rift Gi responds better that expected. I sweat a lot, yet my gi stays dry. I'm more relaxed and feel very comfortable. A cool "hack": The gi sleaves can stretch to make the Ezekiel choke easier to finish. Now, here is where the value on a $300 comes into play: I double up on training for Wednesday. The gi top is still dry after the first session! I do not have to change to a second gi. The Black Rift gi is almost dry coming out of the washer! The instructions say to tumble dry. I hang dry my Black Rift gi and I can use it almost right away. So, in theory, I could use my Black Rift Gi everyday. I'm getting my money's worth. A nice surprise is the attention the Black Rift receives at class. That's a first for me. My only complaint, there's no 2019 Blue Rift Gi! Please make a blue one.

    Lighter than you can believe fitting better than I thought possible. Just a sick Gi that performs far better than expectations.

    Black rift

    Posted by Unknown on Oct 4th 2019

    It's honestly an amazing gi. I've had a ton of compliments already about it. It's very comf, extremely light weight and durable. During shrimping, it was extremely easy to move on the ground. A purple belt told me as he mangled me that it felt like a blanket. Couldn't recommend it enough.

    2019 Black Rift

    Posted by Tim Jurgovan on Sep 26th 2019

    Hands down the most comfortable Gi I have trained in! I was in the fence about buying one because of the price tag but after training in the Black Rift it is worth every penny. I train 3-4 times a week and usually rotate through my other Gi’s, but after training in my Orgin Gi I’m finding it hard to do. The pants fit perfect and the Jacket is so lightweight and comfortable. Great quality and craftsmanship !

    1776 Famine and Conquest - ORIGIN USA Limited Edition Gi

    Posted by Garry The Viking on Sep 24th 2019

    Ordered in black and took advantage of the great price for the limited 4 horsemen rashguard for 40 instead of 60. Also requested 2 in short in sleeve and the black pants with blacked out logo. All worked out perfect and I'm VERY happy with the gi.
    I train BJJ 5 times a week and I need to rotate my 3 sets quick. This thing is amazing as it's almost dry when i take it out the machine!! I can wash it at breakfast time and wear it at lunch time. The fit and feel is incredibly good which is unusual for me to appreciate. Perfection.
    Everyone asks about the qulity and feel of the material and asks about Origin as I live in Asia and it's not a common brand. My next gi will for sure be the RIFT and it will be interesting to see any differences. Dont hesitate, just buy it. Thank you Origin.

    Best gi on the market, hands down.

    Posted by Justin on Sep 16th 2019

    Look no further. There is no better quality. The fit, finish, and feel of this gi is legendary. As soon as they’re back in stock, I’ll be replacing the rest of my lineup within rift’s as well.
