Characteristics of the Classic model
Our flagship glove model “Classic” is covered in an overall smooth construction which, in combination with a rubber portion on the wrist, serves to completely unify the glove with your hand.
This smooth construction insures high performance by lowering the chances of anything being caught.
*Compared to the Series1/Series2 gloves, Classic has a tighter fit.
**Though it is primarily purposed for use in epee, usage in foil is also possible.

About the 3D construction
Not only concentrating on the cutting process, a number of factors were taken into calculation when designing the glove - everything from the layout of the components to the various stresses and flexes that the glove goes through while in use.
From eliminating the uncomfortable tenseness of traditional gloves, to engineering the way the material folds when the hand is moved, every component has a specific purpose: to let you control your weapon the exact way you want to.
Advanced Grip functionality
With a greatly increased level of grip in comparison to traditional gloves, the Kanade Glove allows the athlete to hold and control his weapon with less strength than normally required.
This results in better fine motor control, as well as improved endurance.
In addition, to ensure that the glove becomes an extension of your skin, we have incorporated GripVec™ into the thumb portion – something never seen before.
For the next evolution in fine blade control.

An emphasis on safety
