The Skelly is one of our most popular gloves, it's segmented design offers great movement, flexibility and agility while still providing padding where it's most needed. We can make most colours, but please remember some colours may not be allowed in certain competitions if you are ordering custom colour.
Comfort & Dexterity
Super stretchy nylon liner glove coated in soft elastic coating = an incredibly comfortable glove on the hand. The Skelly uses our Performance liner, made with top quality liquid silicon. The segmented padding minimizes resistance to movement, making the Skelly a dream to wear. It's made from more specialized materials than most gloves, so please read the care and use recommendations.
All the major impact points are well padded... the heel of the thumb, the area between thumb and index-knuckle, all the main knuckles, all around the thumb, back of the hand, and reinforcement on the main index knuckle. Wherever you might get hit, this glove will either prevent or reduce any damage your poor hand will take.
Tilespeed & Handspeed
The slick silicon is one of the fastest materials on pool tiles. Unlike latex which can drag slightly and get sticky as it ages, silicon will stay super slick. The Skelly is properly padded but still fast through the water for zippy handspeed.
The Skelly has reinforced fingertip pads and thumb pad to reduce wear in these areas, and a coating of silicon over the palm and fingers. All the areas of the glove in contact with tiles/bottom/sticks/pucks are solid silicon, with no material to wear holes into and nicks/cuts can be easily repaired if required using acetic silicon sealant.
We offer a range of standard colours and you can request custom combinations, or even a custom colour. Please be aware that not all colours are legal, depending on the colour of the puck in a given competition. Colours like Navy Blue, Forest Green are potentially too dark to be legal for International competition and Sky Blue potentially too light, check with your local referees if you are unsure about the rules in your area.
Please note that the Skelly glove is a snug fit. The standard Hydro glove sizing chart is applicable, however if you are in between sizes or prefer a loose fitting glove we would recommend you go to the next size up.
