Activating the grip before the first use

Question

How can I activate the grip of my gloves before the first use?

Answer

  1. Wash the gloves under clear, running water or in a sink. The water should be cold or lukewarm.
  2. Rub the hands and press them together to squeeze any residual soap from the manufacturing process out of the foam
  3. Repeat this process until you no longer get little bubbles developing
  4. Then wring out the gloves well and leave them to dry on a towel or drying rack

Important: it’s normal for the gloves to lose a bit of grip after the initial wash. The full grip will only develop after they have been used 1 or 2 times, ideally in training.
