FOAM MATERIAL Hyper foam provides an excellent grip in both dry and wet conditions. In wet conditions the moisture is absorbed by the foam which greatly improves the grip.

Aqua Foam offers optimal grip in wet conditions. The soft and more open foam structure takes up water, which – in comparison to other types of foam – provides a 25% better grip. Additionally the Aqua Foam gloves contain an extra shock-absorbing function to reduce the impact of hard shots. The changing needs of professional keepers require that the characteristics and quality of the foam continually develop.

ROLLFINGER

With the roll finger system, the finger is completely surrounded by foam, without stitching. The magnification of the grip surface that is created in this way, allows for optimum grip on the ball.

Super Soft Profi Foam has excellent properties for grip in both dry and wet conditions, and it also offers excellent cushioning. The use of the latest materials ensures durability and optimal comfort.

Soft Foam provides a reliable grip and excellent cushioning. Soft Foam ensures maximum ball control and optimal comfort.

FLATHAND POSITIVE STITCHING

In a flathand glove, with positive stitching, the stitched seams are applied to the outside of the fingers, increasing the foam surface and creating a larger area for catching the ball.

CUSHIONING

The adhesive properties of the foam are decisive for an optimal grip and the best performance. The weather is a big influence on the properties and performances of the foam material. Playing during dry weather requires specific foam components for optimal results.

Moisture, rain and wet conditions affect the grip and require additional components for a better grip. A softer and more open foam structure absorbs the water and is very suitable for wet weather conditions.

As well as grip, cushioning is an important factor in determining the most suitable goalkeeper gloves. The softer and thicker the foam, the better the impact of the ball can be absorbed. Also the thickness of the basic material of the gloves determines the amount of cushioning.

ABRASION RESISTANCE

Foam is a very soft material that needs special treatment. Regular ball contact leads to wear and tear of the foam. The degree of wear is determined by the surface structure and the density of the foam material. A more course and closed foam structure will lead to less wear.

In a flathand glove, with negative stitching, the stitched seams are applied to the inner side of the fingers, making the glove fit more tightly around the fingers, and increasing the control on the ball.
