PALM OF GLOVE: Our latest new German engineered and manufactured AX2 foam is a blend between our A2 foam and our X1 foam. The combination of these two styles brings the best of both. This palm is excellent in both wet and dry conditions. Because of the additives, this foam is also longer lasting than our softer foams. The keeper can soak the glove in warm water for up to one hour before the game, and then again at half time. This activates the additives in the foam making the stickiness of the foam material increase. The foam retains the additive until it wears down. Our AX2 foam is a very popular foam with our top European goalkeepers! Our 3D Thumb Crotch™ is our latest invention. This rolled crotch construction between the thumb and the index finger eliminates any seams that can bother the keeper in an area that takes a lot of stress. The backhand base of the flexible and breathable mesh material is rolled to the palm which supports an ergonomic fit and increases wearing comfort. There is a foam gusset on the inside of the pinkie finger that, again, keeps foam on the ball until the very last moment when distributing the ball.
BACKHAND OF GLOVE: Pro Latex foam all over. Embossed foam design makes the glove more flexible at many breakpoints. The new Wider Neoprene Wrist Bandage gives the keeper a better fit and more control. Our revolutionary Pro Flex™ technology offers excellent flexibility that improves the glove fit and performance. We have combined specific stretch materials and applied our expert knowledge of soccer and glove technology to invent the best backhand flexibility on the glove market. Pro Flex™ is technology at the highest level! In addition, we have developed a free-floating Ortho-Tec™ stay system by anchoring the individual finger-stays at the extreme end of the glove fingers and thumbs; thus allowing unsurpassed flexibility and customization in the glove. Backhand Side Wrap™ that wraps the backhand material around the side of the hand. This feature gives extra protection to the palm material and the keeper’s side of hand.
CONSTRUCTION: The optimal fit and catching zone provided by our revolutionary Expanse Cut ESS™ (Ergonomic Support System) uses a pattern that helps the fingers to be pre-splayed (spread so the keeper has a better hand position on the ball). Neoprene wristband, water resistant PU backing. Rolled Thumb Construction. Our patented two-piece dual density Ortho Tec™ stays are removable in all the fingers AND the thumb. Being removable makes this glove customizable so the keeper may remove them from the fingers where they are not needed, or reduce the size of the stay if desired, etc. The deep thumb notch on the face of the glove includes an elasticized piece below the foam to help eliminate tear out. We also use an elasticized thread throughout the glove to help eliminate tear out. Our Keep Control™ helps when catching and holding the ball. The inside of the small finger is covered with a highly functioning latex palm material. So, the negative stitched small finger latex gusset prevents the ball from slipping when holding or throwing the ball as long as possible. Also includes a Pull Loop™ system, which helps the keeper get their gloves on easier, especially when one glove is already on.
