HIRZL GRIPPP™ Technology.
GET CONTROL. GET GRIPPP.
The HIRZL gloves of the GRIPPP & TRUST series get their superior grip properties through an innovative tanning technology, which HIRZL uses exclusively.
The revolutionary HIRZL GRIPPP™ technology developed by HIRZL is based on a complex, multi-stage & secret tanning process, which gives the kangaroo leather incomparable values in grip in all weather conditions. Furthermore, the tanning ensures a very high sweat resistance and water absorption.
This ensures a long-lasting leather performance, as well as a virtually sweat-free palm under load. The kangaroo leather used also gives the gloves a long durability, as the leather is extremely abrasion and tear resistant despite its thinness.
The result: Up to 3 x more grip in dry conditions and up to 5 x more grip in rain than comparable gloves.
THE STRONGEST LEATHER IN THE WORLD.
Kangaroo leather is the strongest leather in the world by weight compared to other types of leather at a similar thickness. This is due to the unique structure of kangaroo leather, which consists of dense fibre bundles supported by a secondary support fabric, combined with a flat fabric structure, low fat content and a very thin grain structure.
Naturally thin kangaroo leather retains its strength where other types of leather require heavy scraping and splitting of the leather, which significantly reduces the physical performance of the leather.
The unique properties of kangaroo leather are further optimized by HIRZL's innovative tanning process, resulting in a strong, lightweight and natural high performance material.
Sustainability - Energy- and resource-saving tanning process.
In production, HIRZL pays attention to high environmental standards. For example, a large solar power plant is used to provide energy for the kangaroo leather tanning process, which significantly reduces the consumption of natural gas and the release of environmentally harmful CO2 into the atmosphere.
Special attention is also paid to reuse, waste minimization, as well as responsible water use.
By continuously improving water treatment, Hirzl is able to recycle at least 40% of the water used in the kangaroo leather production process.
Sustainability - Kangaroo leather. Natural, sustainable & renewable
Kangaroos are not bred, but come from a large, self-sustaining population from the wild. This means that no natural habitat is cleared for the kangaroos. The requirements of the Australian government program are very strict, ensuring no adverse effects on the kangaroos themselves or their ecosystem.
There are 53 kangaroo species in total, of which only the four most common species may be used for leather production. Studies have shown no adverse effects on the population of these four species over the last 40 years. Thus, kangaroo leather is considered a renewable, natural resource that is sustainable in the long term.
Only a small portion of the total kangaroo population is used for the food industry, the leather is a recycled by-product that would otherwise end up as waste. With a population of around 30 million, there are more kangaroos living in Australia than humans. Kangaroos are not endangered, contrary to popular belief.
Please do not wash in a washing machine as this will damage the leather. This glove can easily be washed under cold water without adding any detergent or care product. Do not dry your glove on the heater or under direct sunlight. Please do not tumble dry.
