Sport Tips

Which soccer ball is right for me?

Cover Material

Composite: Offers superior touch and softness. The best for competition.
Polyurethane: Provides a soft touch, with durability and water-resistance. For practice or match play.
PVC: Durable and scuff/water-resistant, but not as soft as polyurethane. For practice and recreation.
Rubber: Waterproof and the most durable, especially on asphalt. Great for institutional use.
Felt/Suede: The softest, friendliest cover material. Exclusively for indoor use.

Bladder Material

C-2: The best touch and rebound, but with improved air-retention due to its mix of carbon and latex.
Latex: Offers superior touch and rebound. Least air-retention quality; requires more frequent filling.
Butyl/Rubber: Retains air exceptionally well and provides uniform pressure dispersion.
