Sting Sports Company comes from Australia. Rumors are, however, that the production of the gear is in Pakistan but this should not bother you. Two-thirds of boxing gloves brands produce their equipment in Pakistan. More important is the quality of the Sting boxing gloves.

Proof of quality

Sting Sport is a brand founded in 2003 in Melbourne, Australia by Amir Anis. The company produces boxing and MMA equipment for training and competition. STING products combine unrivaled quality, supreme comfort, and superior style to unleash the ultimate performance in every athlete.

The proof of the high quality of the sting boxing gloves was that they were chosen for official AIBA boxing glove and sports equipment supplier for the 2014 Commonwealth Games and 2016 Summer Olympics.

They have numerous partnerships:

  • Boxing Australia
  • USA Boxing
  • Boxing NZ
  • Boxing Canada
  • Italian Boxing Federation

And Sponsorship:

  • AIBA Pro Boxing -professional boxing league of International Boxing Association(AIBA )
  • 2018 Gold Coast Commonwealth Games
  • World Series of Boxing.
  • 2016 Rio Olympic Games.

One of the Boxers using Sting sport is Susie Q Ramadan(26-2). She is the first woman who catches and upholds the international Boxing Federation Bantamweight World Title as well as WBC World Bantamweight Title.

 

As she says:

“I train and fight in Sting gloves and they have been my winning gloves…”

The Sting gloves – lethal construction.

STING supplies first-class boxing equipment for Olympic Boxers, MMA equipment for professionals in mixed martial arts as well as accessories for all fitness enthusiasts.

The question is why such a young brand has such a high consumption?

The answer is one!

Sting Sports combine the finest materials with the latest design techniques and the most skilled craftsmanship achieving quality competing with the best brands.

STING takes up the boxing glove at the next level by combining traditional production methods with cutting-edge materials and innovative design. Every item in the STING range has been used, tested and approved by professional athletes.

Craftsmanship

The craftsmanship is excellent. The stitches are nice, very sturdy and perfectly crafted. They typically use double-stitched stitches and reinforce particularly high-stress areas, such as the thumb joint. All stitches are well arranged and secure, and the skin is evenly distributed over the gloves without wrinkling the knuckles of the fingers. Sting gloves have a thick pad and high-quality laces.

The skin is of medium quality but very durable. Great attention has been paid of the inner lining.

Sting gloves are very comfortable and very ergonomic and fit fantastically around your hands.

This is due not only to the ergonomic design but also to the materials that have been used.

Sting gloves are using really soft foam on the palm side and then super-stiff (HARD) rubber material on the back side of the wrist to give you wrist support, which is unusual for most brands. In terms of impact, They are very similar to Cleo Reyes, which means that your punch is always more solid.

This makes this brand unique. The Sting boxing gloves are extremely comfortable and very well protected.

Sting boxing gloves also have an additional pad at the front of the finger joints at a certain angle to provide extra support for knuckles.

Normally Sting gloves offer extremely high levels of wrist support, for example, Orion Competition Premium Boxing Gloves have three inches wide Velcro closure secures which is very thick and rigid

TECHNOLOGY GLOSSARY

Sting sports use a lot of innovation in their products. Below is a brief description of some technologies they implement in their equipment:

  • NEO GEL(New gel technology increases absorption and dissipation of impact energy. Reduces shock and user fatigue.)
  • GEL FUSION(Integrated Gel materials are fused in place during a controlled lamination or injection process to ensure uniform dissipation of impact energy.)
  • SLV3(Soft and supple like natural leather with a full leather grain finish. High-performance structure which reduces odor and performs better for longer.)
  • THERMALITE THREE (T3)-Strong lightweight material, designed with a multi-directional outer layer for reduced heat absorption and increased moisture evaporation.
  • ATMOSPHERE(Integrated airflow technology combining three-dimensional moisture-dissipating materials and air circulatory channels to help conduct heat and moisture away from the body.)
  • AMARA(Japanese synthetic suede material made from bundles of superfine fibers locked together with polyurethane resin. Amara offers the same composition, look and feel like natural leather, but with better durability and air permeability.)
  • PREMIUM LEATHER9Carefully selected leather hides chosen for their suppleness and treated under special tanning processes to meet strict STING quality standards. Designed to last longer and outperform standard leathers.)
  • HI FLOW CORE(Injection molding produces a single weighted mold under heat allowing for accurate weight distribution, increased impact absorption, and maximum protection. Ideal for sparring, high-performance training, and competition).
  • HD CUP(Promotes correct hand positioning to absorb shock and reduce jarring on elbows and shoulders.)
  • DUAL CORE(Carefully selected materials bonded under lamination to promote maximum energy absorption. Increases longevity of the inner core while maintaining required weight characteristics.)
  • QUAD CORE(Four-ply material lamination process fuses each material to produce a singular structure. As energy is transferred on the impact each layer acts to cancel, absorb and dissipate energy waves to reduce user fatigue and minimize injury.)
  • KEVLAR(Lightweight high strength material that is resistant to corrosion and abrasion. Kevlar helps minimize vibration and can withstand high levels of distortion without breaking.)
  • COMFORTLINE(Patented 3D floating glove liner technology designed to increase comfort through unique cushioning finished in an ultra-soft top layer.)
  • SPORTLINE(Utilizes our patented 3D floating glove liner technology with an added moisture protection barrier to increasing durability. Finished with an Atmosphere top layer for improved airflow and moisture management.)
  • SPORTLINE PLUS(All the benefits of Sportline with double the moisture protection qualities helping protect the inner core. Finished in high-performance memory material that molds to your hand throughout the training.)
  • SAS / SAS PLUS (SHOCK ABSORBING SYSTEM)(Our SAS Shock Absorbance System incorporates an integrated strike energy management layer to help dissipate impact energy and reduce fatigue. SAS Plus offers an increased density and absorption for even more performance.)
  • Aniline Leather(Top grain leather treated with a special pigment to ensure color consistency, durability and a clear water-based topcoat for additional protection.)
  • Microsuede(Knitted fabric created with fibers over a hundred times finer than human hair creating a tightly woven dense fabric that looks like suede leather yet outperforms by being stronger, softer and easier to clean.)
  • GRIP-FLEX(Finger expansion joints designed to safely absorb glove flex and strengthen glove components under load as the hand expands and contracts during training.)
  • EASY WASH(Specially treated washable leather which can be air-dried to maintain suppleness and repel moisture.)
  • COOL WEAVE(A 4-way woven material with airflow and moisture management properties for maximum comfort. Expands and contracts with your hand during training to maintain ideal fit and glove stability.)
  • DIAMOND COOL WEAVE(All the benefits of Cool Weave with a 3D hook and rod construction. Available in HD and Lite versions.)
  • NEO GEL(New gel technology increases absorption and dissipation of impact energy. Reduces shock and user fatigue.)
  • GEL FUSION(Integrated Gel materials are fused in place during a controlled lamination or injection process to ensure uniform dissipation of impact energy.)
