Tips, tips and instructions for eliminating smell, prolonging goalkeeper glove life and making latex stay stickier for longer.

Every day at West Coast we get questions about whether or not a keeper should use finger saves. This post hopes to help you make a choice, show what some our pros do and explain why every pair of West Coast Gloves comes with removable finger saves.

One of the most common emails we get is concerns wear on the bottom of a palm. 

A simple way to make your palms last is to make a fist when Pushing Up from the Turf.  

Coming off of his 2nd MLS Cup win, Stefan Frei was ready for a change.  He had worn the same brand of gloves his entire career.  So why change?   Stefan tried our gloves in 1 training session, after just 1 training session his decision was made.

We have a motto we say here at West Coast, 'the only difference is skill.'  What we mean by that is we work really hard to make sure every keeper has Amazing Quality, Pro Gloves at a great price!  So the only difference between you and that top level Pro is Skill. 

The new wider wrist strap hides an extended palm to help with control of the ball and playing out of the back, we are confident you will love it!

The Helix Honor was made to HONOR all of those Breast Cancer Survivors and those amazing ones, who fought so bravely but succumb to the terrible illness.

In the Aloha we worked hard on Increased Flexibility
  • Added new XTEND Wrist, which incorporates a Wider more secure wrist strap from Latex & Elastic 
  • A rad hidden Extended Palm, which will help you with distribution, front smothers and general ball control. 

 3 glove launches represent 3 distinct styles for keepers!

 

  • Quantum EXO Marley: An ultra-lightweight glove, that is massively flexible and features a BioHYBRID Precurved palm to help you stay on top of your catch.  
  • Spyder X Pacifica: A bit more narrow glove, designed for people that don't have massive hands.  Featuring a Roll/Flat Hybrid - gives you a large catching area, which having a precise fit with our internal dynamic gripping gel. 
  • KONA Lion Rampant: A classic Roll Finger Design, with Extended palm - this glove is a larger glove with memory foam backing which helps absorb hard shots, the extended palm helps with increasing throwing and playing out of the back!

 

Quantum EXO Series- starting with the Quantum EXO Marley, a glove with Easy on/Easy off entry, wider and precurved palm so you can stay on top of your catch with a Silicone Punch zone, we incorporated our Internal Grip and Supreme + German Pro Latex, used in match play around the world by top keepers. 

There is no Secret the KONA is one of our most Popular Models.  A very classic glove with a more substantial feel, the KONA is great at helping deal with HARD SHOTS, the memory foam lining in the backhand helps deal with that. 

The Pro-Team not only wears our Gloves in Matches, they help develop our gloves. They test and help with the product development process of every single model we make!  Until they sign off on it, we don't make it! 

Tyler Miller is one of the most dynamic and explosive young goalkeepers in MLS, leading LAFC to the playoffs in their first season and we are happy to work with him to bring his signature glove to life.
