Foam Channel Technology was developed to allow for the maximum amount of air to continually flow through the gloves as they are striking or absorbing blows. The design consists of a series of small air pockets or "valves" that are molded into the primary layer of foam. This allows for a greater amount of air intake and exchange with each impact. Surrounded by multi-layers of closed and open cell foam, they all work together to disperse shock with each strike and absorb all the punishment you can dish out. These Foam Channel gloves feature genuine leather, the highest quality construction throughout, with an added mesh palm that allows the glove to dry quickly and thoroughly after each use.
