Learn more about our gloves and the care instructions. Read through our care instruction step by step.
1. Choose the right gloves for your needs
Take the gloves that are made for the type of surface you regularly play on and the weather conditions you will face the most.
Select the palm foam that best corresponds to your needs. Even though all Reusch palms are made of high-quality material, they differ in terms of grip, cushioning and durability, depending on the material compostion of the foam.
Check the additional features of the glove that can help you improving your performance.
Decide whether you want finger protection or not, choose your preferred cut and pick the right size.
2. Wash before first use
Never forget about this! In order eleiminate any remaining soap necessarily used in the production process, the gloves must be cleaned with warm water before first using them.
Only after this procedure the gloves attain their fullest grip properties.
3. Moisten before laying
Rinse Aqua gloves with warm water (preferably between 35 - 40º) one to two hours before using them, in order to activate the Hydrograins™ inside the palm foam.
Moisten all types of goalkeeper gloves before playing.
Keep the gloves in slightly wet condition during use.
4. Clean after playing
Wash the gloves with warm water (around 35º) after playing in order to eliminate dirt that decreases the grip properties of the gloves.
Do not use aggressive solvents or harsh cleaners.
Wash by hand and not in the washing machine.
For a perfectly clean glove, additionally use special glove wash.
5. Dry slowly
Let the gloves dry slowly by air.
Keep away from radiators or other sources of direct heat.
6. Store in appropriate location
Do not expose gloves to UV radiation like intense sun light or light from fluorescent tubes, as this can impair the grip and durability of the latex layer.
Store the gloves in a cool, dark and dry place.
Goalie bags are the perfect sotrage items for your gloves.
7. Use until completely worn-out
Very soft palm foams can show first signs of usage already after a small period of use.
The performance and the grip properties of the glove remain untouched until the palm is totally worn out.
Be the One – the Reusch Attrakt G3 Fusion Ortho-Tec Goaliator is made for superior goalkeeping performances. Trusted by more than 220 first-league goalkeepers all over the world, such as the top stars Hugo Lloris, Wojciech Szczęsny, Samir Handanovič, Jiří Pavlenka or Agustín Marchesín, Reusch is among the worldwide leading glove specialists. As the most advanced Reusch palm foam ever, the G3 Fusion latex including special adhesive additives offers best grip properties, great abrasion resistance and outstanding wet-weather performances. The extremely tacky G3 Ultra Soft foam was fused with speckled latex injections to boost the palm’s all-round performance: highly resistant black Solid latex dots noticeably increase the durability; blue Aqua latex dots with the innovative Hydrograin™ technology push the grip in rainy conditions to a new level. Palm embossing makes the glove even more flexible. The DuraGuard™ latex patch offers extra abrasion resistance and durability in the most stressed zone of the palm. The completely renewed Ortho-Tec™ Advanced Protection System reduces the risk of finger injuries and offers great freedom of movement. A newly engineered and Reusch exclusive construction consisting of five individually removable protection spines makes them lighter, thinner and more bendable than ever before. Their ergonomic shape totally adapts to the natural movements of the fingers and blocks movements before the fingers are being pushed backwards into the injury zone. Combined with a brand new entry system based on a super-stretchable neoprene opening on the backhand of the glove instead of rigid zippers, the new Ortho-Tec™ system meets the demands of the new goalkeeping generation: light, thin, flexible and quickly removable while at the same time being highly reliable against hyperextension of the fingers.
A new backhand construction combining the Shockshield Advanced technology with super light neoprene fingertips, offers maximum flexibility and at the same time an outstandingly reliable punching zone.
The palm latex is extended around the inner side of the thumb nearly up to the backhand. The palm gets evidently enlarged, putting the thumb in a highly functional 3D-shape.
Provides maximum ventilation inside the glove. Highly breathable mesh material ensures optimum air circulation within the glove.
A horizontal 4-way stretch insert keeps the backhand extremely flexible in all directions.
ERGONOMIC SUPPORT SYSTEM ESS™
The anatomical shape of the glove and the pre-spreaded fingers enhance the glove’s wearing comfort and support a natural catching position. The palm latex covering the side of the palm area nearly to the backhand provides an optimized fit. It can either be “Rolled” on the small finger side or “Dual Rolled” on both small finger and index finger side.
This variable and effective finger protection system reduces the risk of injury. The individually removable sticks totally adapt the shape of the fingers. All fingers can grasp flexibly without restrictions and with no additional force, whereas bending the fingers backward into the injury zone is close to impossible.
The light version of our finger protection technology equips all protection styles of the entry price segment. It is firmly fixed and increases the stabilization of the fingers.
This one-piece punching zone on the backhand of the glove provides the goalkeeper with more safety, advanced protection and better ball control.
The upper third of the pinky finger sidewall is covered with palm latex. This prevents the ball from slipping and enhances the control when throwing it.
EXPANDED FINGER TIPS EFT™
Maximizing the palm around the finger tips ensures the biggest possible latex-to-ball contact area and so guarantees an even better control when catching the ball.
Extra strong textile tab for perfect fixation of the gloves.
The DuraGuard™ latex patch offers extra abrasion resistance and durability in the most stressed zone of the palm.
ERGONOMIC PALM EMBOSSING
Embossments following the natural lines of the hand support the natural grasping movement, providing high flexibility and maximum ball control with unaltered grip qualities.
3D THUMB CROTCH™
This rolled crotch construction between thumb and index finger avoids any bothering seams in this highly loaded zone of the glove, supporting an ergonomic fit and best wearing comfort.
