Gilbert Kinetica Match Rugby Ball Size 5


Official Gilbert Kinetica Match Rugby Ball

The Kinetica ball, endorsed by England, was designed by the world leader for ball construction in World Rugby since 1823. Gilbert developed this high quality match ball to support the ultimate performance of seniors and clubs.

The Kinetica match ball is an evolution of Gilbert's Revolution X Match ball and features Gilbert's Truflight valve and copolymer 'Air-loc' bladder to ensure proper inflation through all match conditions. As well, the G-X rubber compound surface with standard grip assists players handling the ball in every possible circumstance on the pitch. Finally, to guarantee quality, this ball is pre-kicked.

1. In order to get the needle into the ball, dampen the needle with water.

2. The valve for the ball is situated in the main panel, but on the match balls the valve is hidden in the seam.

3. Make sure there is enough space for the needle to go all the way in without touching the facing inside wall of the ball. Not doing this may puncture the ball from the inside. Hold the neck of the valve with two fingers. Pinch it, wet the needle and slide it in.

4. It also helps to grip the entry point from underneath to make sure the needle goes all the way in.

5.The most mentioned problem when inflating balls is that the needle isn’t inserted into the bladder. If you hear air escaping, you haven’t put the needle all the way into the bladder of the ball.
