All the signs are there. Christmas is on its way – how quick time flies ay!
Which means before you know it, it’ll be spring soon and the cricket season will be under way.
And Sport-locker.net has got further good news for those cricket fans out there, because today, Puma are launching their brand new PUMA Cobalt cricket range featuring bats, leg guards, batting gloves and wicket keeping products.
Here’s the imagery and info for them!
COBALT takes its name from a chemical element that adds greater wear resistance and high strength to metal alloys.
Its unique blue pigment has added a distinctive colour to jewellery, paint and glass since ancient times. When strength and colour combine in such a way, the result is a high level of dynamic performance with a unique eye-catching style.
As for the bat, the bulk of the power is higher up the blade for big hitting stroke-play. Reducing bat weight without compromising on performance is a key component of a unique bat that combines impressive driving power and contemporary super thick edges with high levels of stability and control: not to mention a certain sense of style and a highly distinctive flair.
Weighing in at just 720g, these leg guards are shaped for a precise anatomic fit and maximum comfort. They include anti-rebound foam panels and side wings and contoured airmesh knee bolster for improved stability and support. A premium padded shin bolsters also include mesh moisture management.
And you won’t be going to break any fingers in the gloves as they have unique PUMA styling with excellent impact protection. High density lightweight foam cushioning allows for natural flexing with the hand for high levels of comfort and freedom of movement. There’s also a visible impact shield for maximum finger protection, with a fibre shield impact protection on lead fingers. Extra soft calf skin palm with finger ventilation should also keep your hands cool in the heat.
We’re hoping to get our hands on some of the equipment to put through our usual rigorous playtest. Having already reviewed the Slazenger V100 Ultimate it will be interesting to see how the Cobalt 5000 bat compares – so stay tuned!
