Bionic Performance - comfort and game-improvement in a glove
May 20, 2010

Three years in the making, the Bionic Performance Series transforms golfers’ perceptions of their glove as an accessory into a genuine game improvement product.

Living up to its billing as the most sophisticated golf glove ever designed and building on patented technology pioneered by a leading orthopedic hand specialist, the Bionic Performance Series offers 44 unique anatomical features that give golfers perfect grip, feel and performance in a glove.

One key feature is the exclusive Triple Row Finger Grip System, where each finger has three multi-layered zones on the palm side made of terrycloth and leather. These raised areas absorb moisture – so they’re like having 15 mini-towels constantly soaking up – and they help the glove conform to the natural shape of the hand for a more comfortable and relaxed grip.

Another primary feature is the Elongated Surround Flexion Zones, where the natural creases occur in the finger and palm. The Performance Series removes leather in these key zones and replaces it with Lycra, which stretches, retracts and breathes.

The flexion zone wraps 180 degrees around the finger to minimize bunching of leather, which occurs when the hand is flexed inward to hold a golf club – delivering enhanced comfort and feel, greater flexibility and a cool, dry hand.

And the glove’s mid-axis longitudinal seam placement, running the length of the fingers, is another unique characteristic.

On standard gloves the seam creates resistance when closing the hand, but on the Performance Series the seam has been moved so it no longer impedes glove closure when gripping the club, helping to fight hand fatigue.

All Bionic golf gloves feature unique triple technology as standard. The Anatomical Relief Pad System strategically places small pads on the glove which improve grip strength without the need to grip harder.

The Pre-Rotated Finger Design follows the natural inward turning motion of your fingers when gripping, giving the glove a ’second skin’ feel.

And stretchable and breathable Motion Zones are added over the knuckles and Web Zones are added between the fingers to provide greater flexibility and natural dexterity, while also helping keep hands cool and dry.

All this technology combines to promote a lighter grip, encouraging a smoother swing and full release of the club head, leading to better contact and straighter ball flight.

More than three years of design and testing went into the Bionic Performance glove, which is endorsed by major championship winner and leading golf analyst Paul Azinger.

Azinger is so confident in the Bionic gloves that he is the only PGA Tour professional with a glove-only endorsement contract. “Bionic is unique and is bringing technology to glove design that we’ve never seen before. It’s so flexible and breathable that you don’t even think about it,” says the 1993 PGA Champion.

Manufactured from a high-grade cabretta leather, the Bionic Performance Series glove has a RRP of £19.99, and is available for ladies and men.

The gloves are distributed in the UK by Stockport-based GM Golf Brands and are available through Pro shops and leading retailers. Mark Richardson of GM Golf Brands, says: “We’re delighted to be bringing this advanced golf glove technology to the UK. Bionic golf gloves have proven to be incredibly popular and this will continue with the launch of the Performance Series.”
