The Fairtex BGV19 Muay Thai Boxing Gloves are handmade in Thailand from premium Fairtex Syntek® leather that is equally as durable as leather but lighter, smoother and does not degrade like leather – meaning less odours !! Fairtex BGV19 features the same 3 layered foam padding that veterans of the Fairtex brand love. It has the same great ergonomics of their best selling BGV1 with the added difference of a slightly longer cuff. The longer cuff provides a more stable wrist support that travels further down the forearm to secure your wrist in place. Combining some characteristic of the classic #BGV6 sparring gloves with extra padding on the palm area for maximum comfort and safety.
