The Crown Jewel! The glove that started it all! The RS1 is the crown jewel of our line and the true Rival Original on which the company was founded.
Manufactured with a new, ultra-resistant, upgraded outside Microfibre, this improved RS1 version continues to offer the performance, durability and quality that you have come to know for over 15 years.
Upon listening to our closest and most trusted customers, we have reshaped and streamlined this beauty to give you maximum comfort and an exquisite fit. The RS1 has also been refreshed with a new look to mark the new generation of this glove.
As it has been since the beginning, the RS1 Ultra Sparring Glove is the pinnacle of a professional sparring glove. From its inception, this glove has been designed with the professional in mind, and is still the pro’s choice.
When we introduced this glove back in 2003, we also introduced the world to the Angled Lace Track System. This unique and original innovation not only offered a new and dynamic way of designing and manufacturing gloves, it also provided the perfect “lace-up” to offer the best fit and stability. The Angled Track has become the distinctive, signature look of Rival across our entire line.
The RS1 sparring glove is the perfect mix of comfort, protection, professional performance and industrial durability.
- Made of Super Resistant Microfibre;
- High Density Multi-Layered Foam Padding;
- Rival’s Signature Angled Ergo Lace Track System;
- Conic Cuff Design;
- Soft, Foamy Cloth Inner Lining;
- Printed Rival Graphics;
- Rival Silicone Patch on the Wrist.
Due to the layered combination of foams used in the production of our sparring gloves, as well as the varying densities, we strongly recommend that you "break in" your new sparring gloves on the bag and/or punch mitts for at least 10 to 20 rounds before using them in sparring.
