Gilbert Barbarian 2.0 Match Ball


Official Gilbert Barbarian 2.0 Match Ball

Gilbertis the most trusted name in rugby balls, and the Barbarian is the ball from the 1995 Rugby World Cup.

The Barbarian Match Ball features a Truflight Valve, a unique valve shape and placement that redistributes weight along the seams of the ball to improve rotational stability, resulting in greater accuracy on passes, and more control in the kicking game. The standard Gilbert grip with round pimples evenly distributed at a uniform height make the Barbarian a comfortable and predictable ball. The 3 ply poly-cotton and cotton laminate panel means that the ball will weigh slightly more. The ball will perform better on longer kicks and passes, and generally hold its shape better than a ball of 2 ply construction.
