We take online security extremely seriously and have taken rigorous precautions to ensure that your information is processed with confidentiality and accuracy.
We don’t hold sensitive payment details about our customers.

Yes, you will receive a confirmation e-mail with an invoice and the details of your order.
How long will delivery take?
Your order will be shipped within 48h. The delivery time will then depends on your country.
For France, the delivery is 3/5 days.
How did you launch your start-up?
We worked day and night during months to create the best boxer brief possible and then we did a crowdfunding campaign on Indiegogo.
This campaign helped us to make our first boxers production and get SPARTAN off the ground.
What kind of radiation does the Spartan Boxer Brief protect me from ?
The Spartan Boxer Brief protects you by blocking over 99% of radiation between frequencies of 450 MHz to 5GHz, which covers everything from cellphone radiations (voice, text, 3G/4G) to WiFi emissions.
Is it comfortable ? Doesn’t it feel like metal ?
It is definitely super comfortable. It doesn’t feel like metal at all, and our fabric feels like a mix of cotton and spandex.
How does it work ?
We weaved a network of silver fibers inside the cotton of the SPARTAN Boxers, creating an electromagnetic shield that blocks wireless radiation from entering the boxer. This is also known as a Faraday cage, and works on the same principle as your microwave, only that it keeps the radiation out instead of inside.
How is it anti-bacterial ?
Your SPARTAN Boxer Brief contains silver fibers. The moisture in your sweat combined with air causes the silver in your boxer to oxidize and release silver ions.
Silver ions infiltrate the cell membrane of the odorant bacteria and break them down, preventing mutation and reproduction.
Is it washable ?
Yes, it is washable at 30°C. And you can wash your SPARTAN Boxer Brief over 300 times, so it is much more resistant than your regular pair of underwear.
Are you against technology, WiFi or cellphones?
No, definitely not! But we do care deeply about our health. And that’s why we designed the Spartan Boxer Brief, to keep using all of the technology available while not endangering our health.
Why haven’t I heard of health problems related to wireless radiation before ?
It took years AFTER scientific evidence of the toxicity of cigarettes for the public to become aware of it.
We only started discovering the adverse effect of electromagnetic radiation a few years ago. And we still don’t grasp the full impact it will have as we only recently started being so connected.
How else can I protect myself ?
- Use a headset when you call.
- Keep your phone away from you when your at home
- Use your laptop on a table or a desk to keep it far from your crouch.
- Wear a SPARTAN Boxer!
Can you tell me more about the research on the risks of Electromagnetic Radiations ?
Sure. Just take a look at this article from the Cleveland Clinic – the country’s leading research center on fertility – which tested the influence of cellphone radiation on different sperm parameters. The results are shocking!
You can also check out is the 2012 Bioinitiative Report, which compiles the results of hundreds of studies.
It is over 1,500 pages long, but here is an excerpt from their conclusions:
EVIDENCE FOR FERTILITY AND REPRODUCTION EFFECTS: HUMAN SPERM AND THEIR DNA ARE DAMAGED
Human sperm are damaged by cell phone radiation at very low intensities in the low microwatt and nanowatt/cm2 range (0.00034 – 0.07 uW/cm2). There is a veritable flood of new studies reporting sperm damage in humans and animals, leading to substantial concerns for fertility, reproduction and health of the offspring (unrepaired de novo mutations in sperm). Exposure levels are similar to those resulting from wearing a cell phone on the belt, or in the pants pocket, or using a wireless laptop computer on the lap. Sperm lack the ability to repair DNA damage. Studies of human sperm show genetic (DNA) damage from cell phones on standby mode and wireless laptop use. Impaired sperm quality, motility and viability occur at exposures of 0.00034 uW/cm2 to 0.07 uW/cm2 with a resultant reduction in human male fertility. Sperm cannot repair DNA damage.
Several international laboratories have replicated studies showing adverse effects on sperm quality, motility and pathology in men who use and particularly those who wear a cell phone, PDA or pager on their belt or in a pocket (Agarwal et al, 2008; Agarwal et al, 2009; Wdowiak et al, 2007; De Iuliis et al, 2009; Fejes et al, 2005; Aitken et al, 2005; Kumar, 2012). Other studies conclude that usage of cell phones, exposure to cell phone radiation, or storage of a mobile phone close to the testes of human males affect sperm counts, motility, viability and structure (Aitken et al, 2004; Agarwal et al, 2007; Erogul et al., 2006). Animal studies have demonstrated oxidative and DNA damage, pathological changes in the testes of animals, decreased sperm mobility and viability, and other measures of deleterious damage to the male germ line (Dasdag et al, 1999; Yan et al, 2007; Otitoloju et al, 2010; Salama et al, 2008; Behari et al, 2006; Kumar et al, 2012). There are fewer animal studies that have studied effects of cell phone radiation on female fertility parameters. Panagopoulous et al. 2012 report decreased ovarian development and size of ovaries, and premature cell death of ovarian follicles and nurse cells in Drosophila melanogaster. Gul et al (2009) report rats exposed to stand-by level RFR (phones on but not transmitting calls) caused decrease in the number of ovarian follicles in pups born to these exposed dams. Magras and Xenos (1997) reported irreversible infertility in mice after five (5) generations of exposure to RFR at cell phone tower exposure levels of less than one microwatt per centimeter squared (μW/cm2).
EVIDENCE FOR GENETIC EFFECTS
Eighty six (86) new papers on genotoxic effects of RFR published between 2007 and mid-2012 are profiled. Of these, 54 (63%) showed effects and 32 (37%) showed no effects.
Forty three (43) new ELF-EMF papers and two static magnetic field papers that report on genotoxic effects of ELF-EMF published between 2007 and mid-2012 are profiled. Of these, 35 (81%) show effects and 8 (19%) show no effect.
