Are you looking for sports gloves which deliver what millions of athletes in the world dream of: a better performance? Then you are in exactly the right place with us! For this we consider the human hands as a biomechanical object of fascination, whose protection, relief and strengthening can be significantly increased by modern technologies.
Take our HIRZL® GRIPPP technology, for example. With this innovative tanning technology you get your sports equipment even under competitive conditions and especially in wet weather without any effort so controlled, that you can focus 100% on your environment and sports activity.
This technology is the basis for the first high performance Golf, Cycling, Equestrian, Outdoor & Fitness glove series in the world, which give you the crucial advantage: An incredible grip!
Thanks to the HIRZL® SOFFFT technology we can support golfers and equestrians with the softest and most durable Cabretta leather gloves ever.
The superior properties of the GRIPPP & TRUST series gloves are the result of our innovative tanning technology, which HIRZL is using exclusively.
The revolutionary HIRZL® GRIPPP technology is based on a secret and multistage tanning procedure, giving the kangaroo leather unparalleled values in grip during all weather conditions.
The kangaroo leather supports this tanning technology, compared to other leathers the kangaroo fiber strands are more dense and lay much flatter for superior strength. Furthermore the HIRZL® GRIPPP technology ensures a long-lasting leather performance and a sweat-free palm during physical activity.
Up to 3 x more grip in dry conditions and up to 5 x more in wet or severe weather conditions than comparable gloves.
The incredible and long-lasting softness with a natural touch to the grain surface & the long-lasting leather performance of the SOFFFT gloves series are provided by the secret tanning formula called HIRZL® SOFFFT technology, based on a tetra tanning process. Gloves with the HIRZL SOFFFTTM technology guarantees an incredible and long-lasting Softness. The result is permanently visible and tactile.
Furthermore the HIRZL® SOFFFT technology ensures an unsurpassed sweat resistance & water absorption. The HIRZL® SOFFFT technology will give you better and longer performance than any other cabretta glove.
Additionally the gloves give the skin an unmatchable velvet-and-silk feel.
Kangaroo leather is by weight the strongest leather in the world, compared to other leathers with similar thickness. Reason is the unique structure of kangaroo leather which consists of perfect organised main fibre bundles, which have a secondary supporting mesh, combined with low angle of weave, low fat content and a very thin grain layer.
Naturally thin kangaroo leather retains all it strength where other raw material types require heavy splitting and shaving which significantly reduces physical performance. The unique characteristics of kangaroo fibre structure are further enhanced through our innovative tanning procedure.
The result is a versatile, strong and light natural material.
During the kangaroo leather tanning process we pay attention to high environmental standards. For the energy supply we make use of a large solar power system that delivers significant reductions in the consumption of natural gas and release of CO2 in the atmosphere.
We put particular emphasis on recycling & reuse, waste minimisation and a responsible water use policy.
By continuously improving the water treatment, at least 40% of the water used in the kangaroo leather production process can be recycled.
Kangaroos are not farmed. They are harvested in the wild from a large, self-replenishing population. As a result no natural habitat is cleared for them. The harvest is strictly controlled by an Australian Government program that ensures no detrimental impact on the kangaroos or their ecosystems.
Of the 53 species of kangaroo only the four most common species are allowed to harvest. Studies have shown no adverse effect on the population of these four species over the last 40 years. Kangaroo leather is a renewable natural resource that is sustainable over the long term.
Only a small proportion of the total kangaroo population is taken for the food industry, the leather is a recycled by-product that would otherwise end up as waste. With a current population well over 30 million the kangaroo are living more kangaroos in Austalia than people. Kangaroos are contrary to popular opinion not endangered.
