The SLYR EJ1 Contra combines the very best elements of flexibility, padding and design to deliver one of our finest models to date. Developed with a material based lower-backhand, it eliminates that typical latex "bunching" you see on so many gloves and fuses it with carefully placed silicone and latex elements within the upper, ensuring padding and protection without the compromise of comfort.
- NEW "Medius SL" cut (negative middle, SL outer fingers)
- 4mm white pro grade Contact latex
- MidSplit® strap system
- Speed Sleeve™ extended wrist entry system
- NEW X-Wrap Control™ palm & thumb wrap
- Rubber tabbed strap to easily adjust & fasten
- Punch zone with integrated flexi-cuts to aid movement
- Extremely comfortable neoprene body sublimated in "Contra" fade
The SLYR range debuts our all new X-Wrap Control™ system which wraps the latex around key palm and thumb touch points - this not only gives you additional latex and grip coverage on the edge of your hand, but also locks it into place giving a more secure and controlled feel. Additionally, the system has specific cuts within the wrap itself to deliver additional flexibility, ensuring secure and controlled doesn't mean tight and restricted.
A Winning Latex
The latex featured on the SLYR EJ1 is our proven pro grade Contact latex, as used by all our pros right up to the English Premier League. It is an excellent latex in the dry and will also perform very well in the rain providing you towel off excess liquid like you typically would with any glove. If it can beat the English weather, you know it's good.
Midsplit® Wrist Strap
When it comes to strapping in, our trademark Midsplit® strap system has you covered. It combines elements of a traditional latex strap with an elasticated mid, combining the best of both worlds. Latex fans have that classic feel to the construction while if you ever need that extra tightness, the mid based elastic insert delivers that.
Medius SL Cut
An all new hybrid that combines negative middle fingers with "SL" outer fingers. Not used our "SL" before? It combines a lower negative with upper negative roll tips to give a superior and true feel to the ball that is ultra snug.
