The APEX Pro series embodies everything its namesake represents. A force to be reckoned with that sits at the top of the goalkeeping food chain. An elite glove that helps unleash that raw instinct upon your six-yard box, elevating your game to the pinnacle, the peak, the APEX.
It is the natural successor to the popular “SLYR” series, offering an enhanced modern feel that does not sacrifice padding or protection – achieved through fusing a material based lower with our overhauled ergonomic “D-Flex” punching zone on the upper.

FIT & GRIP
Pro Proven Grip
The latex featured on the APEX Pro Rift 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.
Vortex combines the very best elements of multiple hybrid cuts to deliver both tight control AND maximum latex coverage.The middle two fingers are flat cut to ensure the most natural and maximum latex coverage curves around the centre of the ball, enhancing grip.
This is no normal flat cut though – it benefits from negative stitching meaning it is a tighter modern feel compared to your traditional flats.
The outer fingers are the very same used across our popular Carbon, AM2 and Vision models - the “Hyla SL”. Our slimline pre curved beauty that hugs and wraps around your finger tips. Much like an enhanced negative-roll.
D-FLEX™ Punch Shield
The “D-FLEX” shield builds on the foundations built by our tried and tested SLYR collection. The positioning of the flexi-cuts has been improved dramatically – offering more optimal hand movement.
The total surface area of the shield has also been decreased, helping reduce any restriction in movement without sacrificing padding and protection.
Echo Form™ Internal Grip
Echo Form™ is not like other internal grip systems. It takes the solid foundations of the past and overhauls it into an entirely new ergonomic form factor never before seen in a glove.
Inside the tips, thumb and palm are carefully placed "echos" - individually shaped patterns engineered to combat the direction your fingers, thumb and palm naturally slip against when making contact with the ball. Each one is different.
Thanks to its clever pattern design, no more silicone is used than required, meaning the feeling doesn't overbear. A subtle but reliable ever-present giving you that extra edge.
The X-Wrap Control™ system 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.
REMOVABLE FINGER SPINES
Featuring five easily removable spines on the fingers & thumb, our spines are designed to **help prevent hyper-extension **related finger injuries that may occur during the game, while also providing that little extra impact protection. Not a finger spine fan? No problem, simply lift up the hidden easy-access pouch and whip them out.
