The rollfinger cut uses a biomimetic gecko palm shape which mimics a gecko’s foot, offering the largest possible contact patch on the ball. The palm material is rolled all the way round the finger to the backhand, surrounding the finger in latex.
Increasing the contact zone with the ball due to the nature of the cut, the flat palm of the Finger Shield glove features layered air mesh gusset inserts between the fingers for added breathability.
An elastic bandage strap wraps 360 degrees around the wrist to ensure a fully supportive fit, meaning no need to use additional strapping which can be cumbersome, uncomfortable and restrictive. The large easy pull tab has no Velcro avoiding damage to the latex on the finger tips.
Micro Laser Etched Contact Sipes utilised over the contact area of the palm increase the surface area and latex conformity. The palm spreads during contact with the ball, increasing the surface area percentage. It also offers enhanced wet weather performance, working in the same way as tyre sipes to increase grip.
The two-part dynamic punch surface, known as the Command Zone, features a graduated silicon print which builds towards a rubber direct injection middle punching platform for additional control on the back hand. This design adds support and function without restricting fit.
Using the world’s best latex source, TUTO have created Invictus Foam – an elite 4mm All Weather latex. This new compound, unique to TUTO, combines premium latex with memory foam for a responsive feel, outstanding grip and amazing cushioning.
Invictus foam features throughout the whole palm, providing a responsive feel, outstanding grip and amazing cushioning, even in the coldest of conditions.
The Aqua Shield latex palm has been optimised for wet weather and it works with the Invictus foam to enhance grip in wet conditions.
