Adidas Hybrid 100 – Review

The Adidas Hybrid 100 is the budget glove of the Adidas range and at Fight store Newcastle we brought it in for a budget glove for people who did not want to spend £60 and above for a pair of boxing gloves but what we found is they work excellent for Juniors doing Boxing & Muay Thai.

Construction- Made out of PU with a two piece injection foam padding these are exactly what you expect from a budget glove.

Feel & Fit- Surprisingly comfortable when you put them on this is the thing Adidas have done excellent here they feel superb when they are on really easy to make a solid fist but this carries through to the Hybrid 200 & 300 aswel they clearly have thought alot about how a boxing glove should feel when its on and this shows.

Price and Value for Money – at £40 these are the bottom end of the gloves we stock in the shop and they are a decent feeling glove but what you are paying for when you pay an extra £20-£30 for a pair of gloves is the construction the PU material and stitching on the Hybrid 100’s wont last very long if you are an adult training 2,3 times a week you will get about 6 months use out of them but that is to be expected from a budget glove.In all honesty i would not compare these to a Pro Box pro sparring glove (£70) or even a Revgear Elite glove (£60) but what i will say is you pay £35 for a pair of awful Everlast gloves from Sports Direct

Would Suit – These have been one of our best selling Junior boxing gloves in the store and the 10oz ones are perfect for kids who are maybe a little too big to use an 8oz Kids glove but still too small for a 12,14oz Adult boxing glove.They do work well for adults too the 16,14oz ones are nice but to be honest it is worth spending an extra £20-£30 and getting something that will last three times the life span of these Adidas Hybrid 100 gloves.

Conclusion- The Adidas Hybrid 100 is what i would call the best of a bad bunch in that budget range £15-£40 there arent any real boxing gloves what you will find in sports direct from Everlast and Lonsdale are basically toys so the Hybrid 100 stands head and shoulders above those but if you are an adult who is training more than once a week i would recomend investing £60-£70 in a pair of boxing gloves.

About Us

 

MMA in Newcastle Upon Tyne and the North East generally has grown massively over the last few years and coupled with its boxing heritage it’s truly astounding that the regions capitol city has been without a dedicated Martial Arts and Boxing store for so long. Newcastle was without an MMA store until 2011 when FIGHT STORE Newcastle opened. Since Then we have been a part of the community with the staff and owners all having been involved for many years in the sports we work for. The MMAnewcastle website was originally built purely because of the amount of inquires we received daily about where people could train. We offer our directory and events listing free to the North East Martial Arts and Boxing community and will continue to work to promote the sports we love in our region
