Kabata is building the next generation in strength training, starting with the world's smartest dumbbells.

The company is backed by world-class VCs & angels, including:

  • Menlo Ventures
  • Tribe Capital
  • Naval Ravikant (AngelList founder)
  • Zaza Pachulia & Kirk Lacob (Golden State Warriors front office)
  • Dan Gilbert (owner of the Cleveland Cavaliers)
  • Andy Dunn (Bonobos founder)
  • Nakisa Bidarian (manages Jake Paul; ex-UFC CFO)

Where the first generation of connected fitness has created products that are bulky, expensive, and lack personalization, Kabata solves those pain points.

Delivered in a compact, cost-effective offering, Kabata tracks & comprehends all your workout data (reps, time under tension, velocity, volume, power, fatigue), sends those metrics back to you in gamified, real-time charts, and runs AI on that data to coach & progress you.

This uniquely data-driven approach allows Kabata to curate effective, personalized workouts tailored to you & your body. Additionally, Kabata’s dumbbells employ form correction & strain analysis in addition to velocity-based training, scientifically proven to help you become stronger & more explosive.

The team is ex-Apple, iRobot, Felicis, Tonal, Postmates, UCLA, Stanford, etc. & actively looking for its next rockstar. Welcome to the next generation in strength training!
