Clothing

No Fear T-shirts were very popular in the mid-1990s. The shirts feature existential slogans or quotes that tout the virtues of extreme sports. The themes: fear of death, lack of laziness, contempt for social norms and the law.[2]

No Fear Energy

No Fear began distributing a No Fear Energy drink through partnership with SoBe. Flavors and versions currently consist of:

  • Original (grapefruit)
  • Sugar Free
  • Motherload (berry)
  • Bloodshot (orange/dragonfruit)

No Fear is the official energy drink of the World Extreme Cagefighting, and sponsors fighter Urijah Faber.[3]

In Europe they are making a different variety called Extreme Energy in partnership with UK based Aimia Foods. The drink is produced in the Netherlands.

Promotion

No Fear began a promotion in 2009 to earn No Fear "cred" by entering codes found under the tab of the cans. Participants can use points earned to acquire No Fear Gear. Grand Prizes include admission to:

  • Mixed Martial Arts event
  • Motocross event
  • Surfing trip to Hawaii
  • Concert tour with Lamb of God.[4]

On February 12, 2008 World Extreme Cagefighting announced that the No Fear Energy Drink brand has entered a deal with the WEC as the promotion's official presenting sponsor and exclusive energy drink sponsor. The partnership has begun with an event that took place in Albuquerque, New Mexico the next day.[5]
