Rival RS1 Pro Sparring Gloves
The Crown Jewel! The glove that started it all! The RS1 is the crown jewel of our line and the true Rival Original on which the company was founded.
Designed at the turn of the century and introduced to the boxing world in 2003, the Rival RS1 Pro Sparring Glove is the glove that all others are judged by.
When this glove was released in 2003 it featured designs and innovations never before seen in a sparring glove.
As it has been since the beginning, the RS1 Ultra Sparring Glove is the pinnacle of a professional sparring glove. From its inception, this glove has been designed with the professional in mind, and is still the pro’s choice.
When we introduced this glove back in 2003, we also introduced the world to the Ergo Lace Track System. This unique and original innovation not only offered a new and dynamic way of designing and manufacturing gloves, it also provided the perfect “lace-up” to offer the best fit, stability and increased performance.
The 15° Angled Track has become the distinctive, signature look of Rival across our entire line.
The RS1 sparring glove is the perfect mix of comfort, protection, professional performance and industrial durability.
