360 DEGREES OF PERFECTION Common to all our balls is that the quality is high and the durability long. An optimally round handball consists of 32 panels made up of 12 pentagons and 20 hexagons. The 32 panels are sewn together using 540 double stitches and 60 corner stitches and are closed off - especially for SELECT - with a double knot. The ball lasts longer this way. Hidden behind the colourful exterior of the balls in our Pro and Club Series is a Zero-Wing bladder made of high performance natural latex. The concept has been developed to ensure that not only the ball but also the bladder is as round as possible. We solely use latex bladders in our handballs with build-in balance point at the opposite side of the valve hole. This, together with the Zero-Wing concept, ensures a perfectly balanced ball with a very lively bounce. To stabilise the ball and to ensure it remains round, the 32 panels are lined with several layers of textile material. The lining helps to adjust the softness as well as the weight of the ball. The most important factor regarding the softness of the ball is actually a layer of neoprene foam, which is placed between the lining and the synthetic leather. The foam maintains its softness and elasticity match after match. The synthetic leather used in our handballs consists of an outer layer of ”grippy” PU with a backside of non-woven polyester fibre. In addition to this, the special fibre threads are inlaid in a crisscross fashion to ensure the strength and stability of the material. This ensures a ball with a perfect grip, optimal balance and extreme durability. High quality is essential for SELECT. For this reason, each ball undergoes a stringent test at our production facilities in Pakistan. Here they are tested for stitching, surface, roundness, circumference, weight, air retention and colour printing. Even the bladders are inflated to ensure perfect balance. Our ULTIMATE comes with a three year warranty on stitching and roundness; all other balls have a two year warranty.
