Sanabul’s never ending quest for excellence has taken many twists and turns. Designing and producing products to perfectly fit athletes of all skill levels is both exciting and challenging.

As a result, our R&D process is extensive. At times designing the best for our team of customers means defying conventional logic about what makes something “the best.”

Many people think animal leather is the perfect material for boxing gloves and pay premium prices for “genuine cow hide.” The problem with believing in perfection, is it means you stop trying to improve.

Our in-depth analysis determined that the best balance of performance factors including durability, fit, feel, and sustainability is found in alternative materials.

For this reason, Sanabul equipment has been made using our Performance Engineered Synthetic Leather since day one. Research shows, synthetic leathers have a much smaller carbon footprint than animal-based materials.

Over time we have developed different iterations of synthetic materials to meet specific performance demand characteristics.

Today our Performance Engineered Leathers are better than ever. Are we satisfied?

No. Synthetic leather is a step in the right direction, but we can do better. Never not pushing forward, we look for ways to improve.

Enter cactus leather. With enhanced durability, optimal feel, improved sustainability and reduced environmental impact, cactus leather is the material of the future, leaving animal and most synthetic materials in the past. We are thrilled to source material from Mexico to bring you the new Sanabul Los Cactus glove, an ultra high end boxing glove made with a near perfect material of the future.

Sanabul’s Los Cactus glove may look and feel like traditional leather, but don’t be fooled, it’s much better. The fit and performance of cactus leather are second to none. It’s only fitting that we pair the best material we have ever used with the highest build quality glove we have ever made. We are confident you will be impressed with Los Cactus.
