There are many materials used in fitness gloves, and the materials used in each part are different, and the function is also different.

Back of the hand: Lycra, polyester, nylon, spandex, ottoman fabric, mesh

Palm: Microfiber, PU, leather, non-slip palm pad.

Thumb: Terry cloth.

Material between finger and finger: ottoman fabric, mesh.

Why are the materials of different parts different?

Because Lycra, polyester, spandex, ottoman fabric, mesh are all elastic fabrics, and the back of the hands and finger joints require a lot of stretch, especially during exercise, so that it is comfortable to wear.

Because Lycra, polyester, spandex, ottoman fabric, mesh are all elastic fabrics, and the back of the hands and finger joints require a lot of stretch, especially during exercise, so that it is comfortable to wear.

Spandex is a polyurethane fiber. Because of its excellent elasticity, it is also called elastic fiber. It has been widely used in clothing fabrics. The main features of spandex fabric are:

The elasticity of spandex is very high. Generally, 100% polyurethane is not used in general products, and 5~30% of the fabric is mixed. Various spandex fabrics have 15%~45% comfortable elasticity.

Ottoman fabric and mesh are also comfortable and elastic fabrics, and they are more breathable. The reason why these materials are used for the back of the hand is that good stretch fabrics continue to promote the convenience, speed and effectiveness of outdoor activities. The elasticity of the fabric keeps the clothing synchronized with the rhythm of exercise and protects the body surface. On the basis of this, we will make greater use of the human ability to break through the limits. It is easy to sweat during fitness. These fabrics have good breathability and sweat absorption, and dry quickly.

The palm is generally made of microfiber, leather, which needs to be resistant and non-slip The full name of microfiber leather is "microfiber reinforced PU leather". It has extremely excellent wear resistance, excellent cold resistance, breathability.

PU is polyurethane. In foreign countries, due to the influence of the Animal Protection Association and the development of technology, the performance and application of polyurethane synthetic leather surpass that of natural leather.

After adding superfine fibers, the toughness, breathable and comfortable of polyurethane have been further strengthened. There is no doubt that the performance of such manufactured products is quite excellent.

And the thumb, people will sweat when they exercise. The thumb is made of terry cloth material, which can be used to wipe sweat. The terry cloth has good sweat absorption and dries quickly, so choose terry cloth as the thumb material.
