Fans of Dragon Ball Z can access a myriad of keyboard and apparel designs with this new collection spanning three iconic brands




LOS ANGELES–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Lifestyle and entertainment organization, 100 Thieves; gaming peripheral and fashion brand, Higround; legendary animation studio, Toei Animation Inc.; and the global anime brand, Crunchyroll, reveal two collections featuring beloved anime, Dragon Ball Z. The respective companies are launching a series of apparel, accessories, and keyboards in limited quantities on August 30 at 12 PM PT.

Fresh out from the Hyperbolic Time Chamber, these collections follow the storied history of Dragon Ball Z and are made with the fans in mind. The two collections place an onus on leveling up one’s creativity and self expression, as well as improving one’s capabilities and power. Launching a 18 piece apparel and accessories collection, 100 Thieves offers creative ways to express a passion for Dragon Ball Z. Higround’s collection of 10 keyboards, 5 mousepads, and 1 jellybag features the first iteration of the brand’s Performance Edition keyboard, enabling users to explore boundless growth and capability.

The 18 piece apparel capsule is 100 Thieves’ take on Dragon Ball Z’s most prominent characters—an ode to the iconic IP. Offering tops and accessories in line with the Dragon Ball Z color palette, this collection is for the collectors.

With four unique keyboard designs, this collection sees the first launch of Higround’s newest—and perhaps most advanced—iteration of gaming keyboard yet. While the featured designs release as Basecamp 65 and Summit 65 iterations, each design will also launch as a Performance model containing Higround’s dynamic actuation switches. These switches utilize magnetic Hall Effect technology which enables users to precisely customize the distance required to trigger the switch down to 0.1mm travel for ultimate speed.

“Going from watching Dragon Ball Z growing up to now collaborating with the anime to release these amazing products is something out of a fantasy,” says Matt Haag, 100 Thieves founder and CEO. “We teamed up with Dragon Ball Z and Higround to give our fans the ultimate immersive experience.”

“Dragon Ball Z is a cultural zeitgeist that has only grown in popularity since its conception,” says Baron Lee, General Manager of Higround. “It’s a story that has stuck with me to this day, and I could not be more proud to release one of Higround’s most innovative keyboards with this legendary artwork.”

With previous Higround and 100 Thieves collections selling out rapidly, fans are advised to act quickly. The Dragon Ball Z x 100 Thieves collection launches on August 30 at 12 PM PT on 100 Thieves’ website. The Dragon Ball Z x Higround collection launches on Higround’s website on August 30 at 12 PM PT.
