Whether you’re a golfer or a gardener, you will love the Bionic glove. Until recently, glove technology was a relatively unexplored territory. But over the last decade, the manufacturers of the Bionic glove have been at the forefront of glove technology in many sports, including baseball, hockey, tennis, racquetball, and equestrian events. Designed by a leading orthopedic hand specialist, Bionic gloves offer ergonomic technology that is wholly unique. The first Bionic golf glove – the Classic was introduced in 2005. Other models are the Bionic Pro – an ultra-thin, tight-fitting glove designed for low handicappers – and the Bionic Silver Series, which is designed for golfers with arthritis. Paul Azinger, the 2008 Ryder Cup Team Captain has been using a Bionic glove for a few years now.
The new Performance glove has more features than any other glove on the market. They include:
- The triple-row finger-grip system to provide durability and promote a more comfortable and relaxed grip
- Elongated surround flexion zones made of stretchable and retractable Lycra to prevent the leather from bunching when closing the hand, and it acts as ventilation to help keep the hand cool and dry
- Mid-axis longitudinal seam placement, which runs up the side of each finger, helps the wearer fight hand fatigue because the finger is not flexing along a seam
“We have put so much technology in this glove that we like to call it a piece of game-improvement equipment,” said Bill Clark, president of Bionic Gloves. Conforming with USGA rules, Bionic gloves’ patented technology enables you to hold the club with a lighter yet more secure grip. With relaxed arms and hands, you realize more distance; with better control of the club head, you enjoy increased accuracy (in theory anyway!). Because of the way Bionic gloves are designed and made, they give you a better grip with less effort. And, they retain their “new glove” feel and performance through many enjoyable rounds. The glove is made of premium cabretta leather with 3M treatment which gives it a tacky feel.
