All you ever wanted to know about Latex!

From now on you don’t have to throw away your goalkeeper gloves. Thanks to this Blog – exclusively for KEEPER – the durability will be extended extremely. We are providing you an exclusive enlightenment about the latex on your glove.

Goalkeeper gloves nowadays are changing constantly. It doesn’t matter if it’s about the cut, design or weight –  a lot of things are happening to provide you an even better and efficient gloves. The thing is: Latex is the crucial thing that decides about success and durability. Different innovations are not the main issue, it’s the latex which is the indicator for a good or perfect Goalkeeper Glove.

You have two different types of how the palm and latex layers are structured. First of all, our recommendation is to have a at least 3,5mm palm on the surface to have an ideal grip. But, an important notice is: the softer the latex, the better the grip and the thicker the latex, the better protection.

But you shouldn’t forget that the abrasion of the grip increases with a softer palm. The advantage of a of a harder palm is the resilience and in this case the durability. A thinner latex layer increases the flexibility and the control of the ball. But if you prefer a bigger protection of your glove you should consider a thicker latex than the soft one.
