Seize The Moment With
A Grip That Won’t Slip

Elite Sport uses only specially-formulated and patented latex to achieve unrivaled grip, comfort and flexibility, without sacrificing durability. All Elite goalkeeper gloves are match-ready, with our high-quality latex on the palm, backhand and wrist strap.

Palm Latex:

Elite Contact Series
Elite EsTec Series
Elite Control Series

The Winning Goalkeeper
May Be The One Who Reached
Just A Bit Farther…

To ensure Elite Sport gloves stretch comfortably with the hands, not against them, there are 5 to 7 elastic panels of material in every glove, depending on the model.

Even The Best Defense
Needs Reinforcements

Goalkeepers’ fingers can be vulnerable to impact, so Elite Sport gloves defend you, while you defend the goal.

Elite gloves are constructed with either 4 or 5 removable finger supports (spines) produced to safeguard and provide maximum protection…the goalkeeper’s armor.

Be Impenetrable.
We’ve Got Your Backing

All Elite gloves have 4 or 5 mm of cushioned backing foam, combined with Elite Sport’s proprietary latex and high-tech fabric. Gloves are sufficiently padded to protect the hands when punching and blocking incoming balls, while ensuring they have extended durability with frequent, aggressive use.

All Elite gloves sport a reinforced Shock Zone for optimal power when blocking. Some Shock Zones are flat, while others feature Elite’s specially-constructed 3D embossing.

Cool Gloves.
Cool Hands.

Because goalkeepers already have plenty of reasons to sweat, Elite Sport has developed a high-tech fabric that features Air Ventilation Management AVM™ to enable air circulation within the gloves. 

When the hands stay cool, the head can stay cooler.

Details In The Palm Of Your Hands

Every surface of Elite Gloves is critical to the goalkeeper’s style and technique. So, naturally, Elite Sport has five models of palm cuts: Roll, Negative Roll (NRoll), Negative, Hybrid (2 Roll, 2 Negative) and Flat. The truly experienced goalkeeper will also want to choose the wrap design,based on how they use the outer edge of their hands: wrapped thumb, double wrapped thumb or side wrap.
