HERO® 2020 Wins Product of the Year!

A Resounding Success at Shot Show

HERO™ 2020 is Shot Show Product Of the Year!

What an incredible week for HERO®! In case you didn’t know, last week we were in Las Vegas at the 2020 Shot Show – the largest trade show of its kind in the world. Manufactures from around the globe reveal their innovative products for sports, outdoors, law enforcement, armed forces, and more. 

While there we released HERO™ 2020 to the world and had a chance to meet all kinds of people, from industry giants, to security professionals, to less-lethal enthusiasts. We were floored by the reception we received, the amazing feedback on our product, and the interest from 30+ countries who have expressed an immediate need and interest to distribute HERO™ 2020! 

And to top it all off, we just learned American Outdoors has awarded HERO™ 2020 the Self Defense Product of the Year! We’re thrilled to receive this honor! Our heartfelt thanks to American Outdoors, Shot Show, and all the people who have helped make HERO™ 2020 a reality. Check out the award video below to hear our co-founder David Clemons discuss HERO™ 2020:

“We were very impressed with the HERO 2020 and have named it our Shot Show Self Defense Product of the Year for 2020. We congratulate the team at Hero for developing a safe and easy-to-use self-defense product… This will help protect citizens as they go about their daily lives.”

– Bill Rogers, Executive Producer of American Outdoors.

What an honor! HERO® has grown to be a global brand almost overnight! A widely varied but focused audience has shown us just how hungry the world is for less-lethal solutions. We’re so proud to offer innovative, quality self-defense devices for consumers and professionals to meet these needs.

“As the newest company to bring well designed and well built less-lethal products into this space, we’re very proud of this unexpected award. HERO® allows people everywhere the option of powerful self-defense solutions that fit their lifestyle. And we have more products on our road map that will help save lives. Our mission is to train over a million people, to rebuild personal confidence by creating small super-hero-like products designed to be easy to use and effective, with video training to keep people safe. Our nitrogen powered launchers deliver the world’s best pepper-based irritants by projectiles filled with powder or a spray of liquid based gel, the choice is yours.”
– David Clemons, CEO and Co-Founder
