We released our new “super” model of our range of boxing gloves about a year ago. There has been a little confusion in the market place into what the differences are between our previous models. Some people have said they are a cross between our older ultimate and air models. However this is not totally accurate, so we are here to put the record straight today.
Current we have 4 variations of our super model range. They are the “super”, the “super air”, the “super competition” and the “superstar”. The “super”, the “super air” and the “superstar” models have the same Velcro close system. However the “super competition” uses a lace-up closure system, because of the nature of lace-up closure systems you will get better wrist protection when compared to the Velcro counterparts.
Now lets talk about the construction of the gloves. The gloves are essentially constructed in the same manner apart from the closure system mentioned before. All our gloves are hand made. However with the “super” model range we use 4 layers of foam. In our previous models we have used 3 layers of foam. We decided on the extra layer of foam to give our customers a greater level of knuckle protection.
In addition to the extra layer of foam we reengineered the hand compartment. In other models we found that some people found the hand compartment a little too large and the thumb position slightly too straight. This lead us to fix the thumb position and make the hand compartment a little smaller to ensure a snug and secure fit.
The above two paragraphs covers the main differences between our super and other models. Lets now get into the slight differences in the variations of the “super” boxing glove range in the next few paragraphs.
The “super” gloves are essentially the no frills variation of the “super” range. They come in the 7 basic colours (black, white, red, blue, yellow, pink and green). They contain the 4 layers of foam and the newly redesigned hand compartment that we talked about earlier.
The “super air” gloves incorporate a clima cool system into the palm of the gloves. Our thinking behind the clima cool system is to allow the gloves a greater level of breathability. This decreases the drying out time of the gloves and reduces glove smell.
The “superstar” gloves are basically the same as the “super air”. They incorporate all the great features of the “super air” gloves. However they sport our signature “superstar” pattern. When we started to produce these gloves we did experience the pattern peeling from the gloves, but we are proud to say that we fixed this problem now.
Finally the “super competition” gloves are our lace-up version of the “super” range. They are our official fight glove. These gloves have been used in Thai Fight and just recently in the Max Muay Thai promotions.
