Elite Sport is one of the largest brands on the market today. They release a few new models each year. This year, in 2020, it will be the turn of the Elite Ignis, Elite Vipera and the Elite Rainbow. This new collection will have the fit of the Elite Neo goalkeeper gloves, because it has been very popular with customers. In this blog I will tell you more about these 3 new goalkeeper gloves. I will tell about the following aspects: Color, fit, grip, backhand.
3 different gloves, 3 different designs. I’ll tell about the gloves seperately. I’ll start with the Elite Ignis: A beautiful glove, quite dark with blue and red details incorporated. It looks a bit like the universe. Then we have the Elite Vipera: A tough glove, completely black with a small red detail incorporated. Last, but not least, the Elite Rainbow: This is a special one, with an underlying thought. The most colorful goalkeeper glove that Elite has designed yet. By using rainbow colors, Elite supports gender neutrality. In addition to the colors, the 3D Shockzone also plays an important role in the appearance of the goalkeeper gloves. Because it is 3D, the backhand gets a lively effect.
The fit of the new collection is completely the same as the fit of the Elite Neo gloves. Our customers were very satisfied with the Elite Neo’s fit. It fits very tight around the fingers, so you experience an optimal ball feeling. In addition, the elastic wristband gives you a tight connection to the wrist. The gloves do not contain fingersave, which ensures that you have a great freedom of movement.
The top class of the Elite brand has two different types of latex: Control and Contact. The latex on these new goalkeeper gloves is the same latex as on the foam layer of the Elite Black Solo. The Black Solo is a model that has been selling like hot cakes for years. They used the Control latex on these gloves; good grip and long lasting with good maintenance. That’s what you can expect from this new collection.
As I mentioned earlier, the backhand has a 3D Shockzone. This not only gives a lively effect, but also ensures that you can punch the balls further away. The backhand material is neoprene, which is windproof and breathable. You will never get extremely cold or sweaty hands in these goalkeeper gloves.
