There are latexes with different names, but the formula for how they work is the same.

The softer the latex, the better the grip on the ball.

The harder the latex, the more durable the lead.

The thicker it is, the more secure the glove.

The thinner it is, the better feel you have for the ball.




Supersoft latex

Suitable for young goalkeepers. It offers good grip and durability for its price, but with poorer performance than other types of latex.


Giga Grip latex

Professional grade latex offering good grip and cushioning. Performs better when moist. It is suitable for all weather conditions and has improved durability.

Aqua latex

Latex specially developed to improve grip on the ball in wet weather. Its presentation in the dry is not so good.


Contact latex

Quartz latex

The quartz latex of the goalkeeper's gloves is placed between the gig and contact. It is characterized by good grip and durability.
