X3 Competition Gloves bring SpiderGrip™ to Functional Training market


There's something tacky showing up in functional training gyms nationwide... and the athletes are embracing it! Unofficially launched at the 2013 CrossFit Games, HumanX's X3 Competition Full-Fingered Gloves have been quickly adopted as valuable tool in the arsenal of many athletes.

Designed for varied workouts – from pull-ups to rope climbing, and weightlifting to sled drag -- the X3 Competition gloves feature Harbinger's exclusive SpiderGrip™ with specially-tanned tactified leather in a seamless palm. SpiderGrip™ offers maximum grip on all surfaces, with no additional bulk, for a natural feeling grip. They also work well with chalk, and are machine washable and dryable.

HumanX's X3 Competition gloves feature a breathable StretchBack™ that moves with the hand and fingers with stretch gussets that enhance comfort and reduce stress. Made with real leather, these gloves are proven to last longer and work well with chalk.

"For 25 years Harbinger has been weightlifters' "go to" brand for gloves because we focus on features that really work -- integrated WristWrap design, BioFlex® moving palm, machine wash and dry-ability -- all these innovations came from Harbinger's drive to make better performing gloves ," says Chanin Cook, Director of Marketing for Harbinger, "and with the X3 Competition gloves, we're introducing our performance-driven thinking to the functional training market."

Current X3 Competition gloves include a full finger style in 2 color-ways for men and women. In May 2014, HumanX by Harbinger will launch the X3 Competition glove line in full finger WristWrap , ¾ finger style, and ¾ finger WristWrap. All gloves will be available in men’s and women’s sizing, in signature color choices.
