材質之王科技布:高爾夫手套材質革命

The King of Materials: Technical Cloth: Golf Glove Material Revolution

What is technical cloth?

Technical cloth (nano cloth) in the field of golf gloves mostly refers to microfiber synthetic leather (Microfiber Synthetic Leather), rather than nano cloth (Micro Fabric) traditionally used to make waterproof and water-repellent clothing. This leather is lightweight, durable and offers excellent feel and grip. Microfiber Synthetic Leather is a new type of fabric that uses tiny nanofibers to weave into a complete fabric (leather). The unique warp and weft texture of traditional textiles is almost invisible to the naked eye. However, at the same time, because the material uses advanced Breathable and water-permeable technology, so leather also retains the breathability advantages of traditional cloth.

New microfiber synthetic leather is currently only produced by a few companies with top-level leather synthesis technology, mostly in Japan and South Korea, so it is very rare on the market. The application of microfiber synthetic leather in the field of golf gloves has the following advantages:

  • Grip and Control : Nanofabric can be used in the palm of the glove to provide better grip and control of golf clubs. This nanomaterial provides better friction, making it easier for golfers to control the club.
  • Durability : Nanofabrics can increase the durability of golf gloves, making them less likely to wear or break. This helps extend the life of the gloves and reduces the need to replace them frequently.
  • Breathability : Nanofabric can enhance the breathability of the gloves, helping to reduce palm sweat and discomfort. This is very important to keep your hands comfortable on the golf course.

Microfiber synthetic leather has very obvious advantages over traditional cloth in terms of performance, and consumers can feel the difference when they first wear it. At present, in countries and regions where golf is popular such as Japan and the United States, adding nano cloth to gloves has become a new popular trend. This is due to the fact that microfiber synthetic leather has higher performance as gloves, and also has a more delicate appearance, which can better highlight the performance of gloves. Golfer's taste.

Technical cloth VS traditional cloth

Compared with traditional fabrics, the characteristics of fiber synthetic leather are comprehensive improvements. Traditional fabrics are often unable to meet multiple pursuits at the same time in terms of the characteristics pursued by golf glove materials. For example:

  • Traditional cloth gloves are limited in material and cannot provide elasticity, making it more difficult to fit the palm of your hand. Second, to increase friction and prevent wear and tear, the fabric cannot be made thin.
  • On rainy days, the gloves are non-slip when exposed to water, but because they are made of flannel, they are thicker, making them hot and stuffy to wear, and they are also difficult to stretch.

But new technology fabric support gloves don’t have such embarrassing problems. The thickness, elasticity, air permeability, friction resistance and other parameters of fiber synthetic leather can all be controlled through technology, so as to meet various performance requirements without losing sight of one thing or another. In other words, in the comparison of fiber synthetic leather VS traditional cloth, traditional cloth gloves may have one or two outstanding functional points in terms of single performance, but nano cloth can do better than traditional cloth in all functions.

performance fiber synthetic leather traditional cloth
thickness Thick or thin thicker

fit Fits with less gaps Rough and porous
elasticity Micro-elastic (approximately 1.3 times extension) No elasticity (approximately 1.1 times extension)
touch exquisite Rough
Wear-resistant flat flat

Wash with water All are OK All are OK
cost high Low

In summary, fiber synthetic leather applications can vary depending on the glove design and desired performance characteristics. By introducing fiber synthetic leather technology into golf gloves, golfers' hitting performance can be improved, providing better comfort and protection, making golf more enjoyable.

Currently, there are two main products in the PGA TOUR golf glove product series that apply nanocloth technology. They are:

The first ( PGA Korean version of nano cloth men's golf gloves (player grade) ) gloves are equipped with ultra-large area nano cloth, providing ultimate comfort for players who have high requirements for feel and control. At the same time, the leather is thinner, which is very popular for control performance. Players with extremely demanding requirements are welcome, but because the gloves are deliberately made thin, if the force is applied in the wrong way, the gloves may be damaged easily, so if you are not sure about the swing action, it is recommended to choose carefully.

The second type ( PGA Men's Golf Elastic Cloth Non-Slip Gloves ) supplements the first type of gloves, adding an elastic cloth design so that the gloves can fit more hand shapes. At the same time, the use of elastic cloth allows the gloves to have a higher fault tolerance rate, making them suitable for both entry-level and professional-level gloves.
