KOOKABURRA CRICKET GLOVES
Kookaburra offer one of the most comprehensive ranges of batting gloves in the world combining both high technology and traditional materials in square & rounded styles to produce unique protection enhancing features which provide exceptional protection for batsmen.
The choice of whether a player prefers the square or rounded look to their gloves is highly personal – in the past it was felt that the use of the traditional cotton materials which are typically used in the production of the ‘sausage’ style product gave better protection; however the modern generation of players prefer the ultra-lightweight feel that foam gloves provide and by using premium foam in conjunction with high impact fibre reinforcement it is possible to replicate the protective qualities of cotton with the lightness of foam.
Kahuna Batting Gloves – Kahuna remains the flagship of the Kookaburra Collection with batting gloves featuring a superb combination of traditional appearance with multi-flex comfort
Verve Batting Gloves – for 2016 Verve Gloves have evolved using lightweight / high impact foam – providing a contemporary multi-flex appearance with the additional protection feature of ‘shark tooth’ intersections
Onyx Batting Gloves – these again feature micro-weight foam; however this time the intersections of curved providing a slightly different flex without compromising on protection in any way
Ignite Batting Gloves – have a simpler cleaner look with minimal use of colour on the glove. They once again feature lightweight foam with fibre reinforcement to give superb protection
Blade Batting Gloves - ‘sausage’ style gloves have historically been less flexible than multi-section products; however for 2016 Kookaburra have combined the protective characteristics of cotton padding with the flexibility of multiple sections to produce arguably the ultimate in protection and comfort
