King of Shaves Hyperglide sets a new performance standard in the global system razor market with a patented self-lubricating cartridge that creates it’s own slippery hydrogel over the entire front face of the shaving surface when it is activated by immersing it in water for a few seconds.

After four years of research and development, Founder and CEO Will King is proud to announce a razor that uses advanced superhydrophilic (‘super water loving’) technology on the cartridge’s entire front shaving surface so users can ‘just add water’ to activate the lubricating hydrogel and shave!

The Hyperglide ‘smart-cartridge’ makes lube strips (a feature of all men’s system razor cartridges since 1976) instantly obsolete. It also makes styling and detailing beards and goatees a breeze with a detailing / edge trimming blade.

King of Shaves Hyperglide launches in January 2014, and will be available from most UK retailers and Target in the USA priced at £9.99 / $12.49 for a handle with one cartridge and £9.99 / $12.49 for 3 cartridge replacement pack. Hyperglide is also available online at www.shave.com.

We launched King of Shaves at Target in 2000 and between then and 2011 we managed the business via our NYC headquartered company. In 2010 we signed a distribution agreement with the Remington division of Spectrum Brands, Inc., which saw us co-brand King of Shaves with Remington in the USA and launch our Azor 5 in Walgreens and other accounts. For reasons that I am unable to express publicly, this partnership was dissolved in 2012 and from January 1st 2013 it’ll be King of Shaves riding solo again, doing things in our own way.

A Step Too Far? was the 3000 mile charity walk sponsored by Remington King of Shaves. Jon Beeby eventually covered 3152 miles in 88 days!

Jon embarked on his marathon trip on 8 May 2011 to raise £100,000 for Tag Rugby Trust, a trust founded in 2002 to help improve the lives of children in the UK but mainly in some of the poorest regions of the world.
