Goalkeeper Gloves Technology

TYPES OF GLOVES

The way in which gloves are stitched determines ball control and comfort. The Stanno product range has Rollfinger gloves, Hybrid gloves and two types of Flathand, one with a positive cut and one with a negative cut. Combined with various types of foam, Stanno has gloves to give every goalie confidence.


Rollfinger


The way in which gloves are stitched determines ball control and comfort. The Stanno product range has Rollfinger gloves, Hybrid gloves and two types of Flathand, one with a positive cut and one with a negative cut. Combined with various types of foam, Stanno has gloves to give every goalie confidence.

These are the Stanno Rollfinger models: Ultimate Grip Hyper II, Ultimate Grip II, Nero JR V, Ultimate Grip JR.


Flathand positive


On positive flathand goalkeeper gloves, the stitching sits on the outside of the fingers. You can see it on the sides of the fingers. It means you have more room in the gloves. The foam surface on the inside of the hand is increased, which means glove-to-ball contact increases.

These are the Stanno flathand positive cut models: Power Shield III, Fingerprotection JR II, Hardground JR III, Volare JR.


Flathand negative


On negative flathand goalkeeper gloves, the stitching sits on the inside of the fingers. The gloves sit tighter around your fingers, increasing the sense of ball control. The tight fit offers a better touch when catching and throwing the ball.

These are the Stanno flathand negative cut models: Volare Pro, Thunder V, Volare Match.


Hybrid


This mixed type of glove combines the benefits of the stitches on the outside of the fingers (flathand positive cut) with the Rollfinger system. This means the fingers are completely surrounded by foam, while the foam surface on the inside of the hand is further increased. As a result, glove-to-ball contact increases.

These are the Stanno hybrid models: Ultimate Grip Aqua RFH II, Hardground RFH III.

 

 

POSSIBLE ADDITIONS TO GLOVES

Apart from the way in which gloves are stitched, certain additions may also determine a goalie’s choice for a certain type of glove. Stanno has made three additions to certain gloves, namely finger protection, a rubber patch and the One Piece Fit Design.


Finger protection


Sturdy, flexible strips at the tops of the fingers offer good protection against injuries during ball contact. The flexibility of the strips guarantees flexibility is safeguarded when throwing out, punching and catching the ball.

These are the Stanno finger protection models: Thunder V, Power Shield III, Fingerprotection JR II.


Rubber patch


Gloves for artificial grass and other hard surfaces come with a rubber patch on the inside of the hand. The patch is located on that part of the glove that comes into contact with the surface most often. It improves the wear resistance of the gloves.

These are the Stanno rubber patch models: Hardground RFH III, Hardground JR III.


One Piece Fit Design


The Volare Pro comes with the innovative One Piece Fit design. The supple, lightweight material of the wrist band continues over the upper hand and provides an even better fit around the skin. The OPF design also results in an ultra-light glove.

These are the Stanno One Piece Fit Design models: Volare Pro, Ultimate Grip Hyper II.

 

 

Foam Material

Foam is one of the most important properties of goalkeeper gloves. It sits on the inner hand that is used to catch the ball. This adhesive latex foam has been specifically developed for goalkeeper gloves and offers grip and absorption. The Stanno product range has four different types of foam, each with its own specifications. Which type of foam is the most suitable for a particular moment is determined by the weather conditions, the surface and personal preference.


Hyper Foam


Hyper Foam offers maximum grip in both wet and dry weather conditions. During rainy matches, the moisture is absorbed by the foam, which strongly improves grip. In dry conditions, the gloves don’t have to be moistened during the match or training session, thanks to the absorbent properties of the Hyper Foam. Hyper Foam guarantees maximum comfort and increases ball control thanks to the excellent impact reduction.

These gloves come with Hyper Foam: Volare Pro, Ultimate Grip Hyper II.


Aqua Foam


Aqua Foam offers excellent grip in all weather conditions and is particularly suitable for wet weather conditions. The softer and more open foam structure absorbs water, which improves grip in wet weather by 25%. The gloves are also perfect for use in dry weather and enjoy an additional shock-absorbing feature to reduce the impact of hard punches.

These gloves come with Aqua Foam: Ultimate Grip Aqua RFH II.


Super Soft Profi Foam


Super Soft Profi Foam has excellent properties for a reliable grip in both wet and dry weather conditions and it also offers excellent absorption. The use of the right materials increases durability and guarantees maximum comfort.

These gloves come with Super Soft Profi Foam: Thunder V, Ultimate Grip II.


Soft Foam


Soft Foam offers reliable grip and excellent absorption. Soft Foam guarantees maximum ball control and comfort.

These gloves come with Soft Foam: Power Shield III, Hardground RFH III, Volare Match, Fingerprotection JR III, Hardground JR III, Nero JR V, Ultimate Grip JR, Volare JR.
