Tachikara

TACHIKARA®, (tah•chee•kar•ah) a world leader in advanced manufacturing methods and innovative materials for athletic balls, was established in 1915 and incorporated in 1920. The company’s name is derived from one Tachikara-Ono-Mikoto, better known as the ""God of Power"" in Japanese mythology. In 1952, Tachikara revolutionized the sporting goods industry with new technology to produce a seamless ball. It was in this era that Tachikara endeavored to set itself apart from the status quo of asymmetrical hand-stitched balls being produced by others in that period to pioneer their proprietary Single Unit Construction method for manufacturing of athletic balls to improve the spherical shape, air retention, rebound, and overall durability. Beginning inside and working outward, the SUC® method combines an internal bladder, reinforcement materials, and outer cover into a single unit. This type of ball is now commonly referred to as either “molded” or “laminated.”

In the years to follow, Tachikara’s relentless pursuit to perfect a symmetrical and responsive ball through testing and research further positioned the company as a true leader in advanced designs and technology while elevating the brand to a respected and empowered position within the industry.

Tachikara's ingenuity eventually led to the development of its patented Loose Bladder Construction method. Exclusive to Tachikara, this now famous method is currently used in the manufacturing of their top performance volleyballs. In short, the LBC® method allows for a layer of air to circulate between the inside bladder and the special blend cotton canvas / leather outside cover. The result is a precision balanced ball that affords truer flight and a superior soft touch. Their seamless LBC® volleyball was introduced in competition at the 1964 Olympic Games in Tokyo. The unique feel and consistent performance of the Tachikara volleyball made such a positive impression on the men’s and women's teams competing that several international volleyball associations encouraged the company to begin exploring exportation of its products for resale to volleyball enthusiasts in countries around the world.

For many years, Tachikara has enjoyed finding its way into the hands of the world’s top athletes. They are committed to staying at the cutting-edge of design, manufacturing, materials and supply of innovative and quality products with unparalleled values always with avid players in mind. They’ve got the ball. You bring the game!
