Revgear S4 Lace up gloves – Review

Revgear S4 Lace up gloves – Review

The Revgear S4 has been my glove of choice for the past year being lucky enough to be given one of two prototype sets that arrived for testing, To put it simply, they have been excellent for almost every aspect of my training. I recently just got my second pair of the now production line Revgear S4 in a lovely antique blue and decided to make them the subject of this review. The REVGEAR S4 is an out and out sparring glove, with my first pair I made the mistake of using mine for all training, smashing bags & pads as well as sparring in them which lead to them breaking down a lot faster than they would if they were just used for one purpose so i now use a pair of 8oz boxing gloves for bags & pads and my 16 oz Revgear S4’s solely for sparring. Working at Fight Newcastle I learned that if you want to extend the life of your gloves it is very wise investing in two pairs one smaller pair for bags & pads (8,10,12oz) and a larger pair for sparring (14 or 16oz)

Construction – These are 100% Premium Cowhide Leather with a Gel injection mould padding which makes this glove excellent for sparring as well as one of the most comfortable I’ve ever worn (and I get to try EVERYTHING working in the store!)

Feel & Fit – The first thing you will notice when you put these gloves on is the comfort and how easy it is to make a solid fist, I am a big fan of gloves that use the grip bar in the palm which makes it very easy to make a good fist. Another feature of the REVGEAR S4 is that they have excellent wrist protection with the padded ridges on the wrist make for a really tight professional feel once they’re laced up. I would compare these to the Ringside Alpha series and several Fighters have said they feel similar to a pair of Grant gloves, However personally i have never tried a pair of Grant boxing gloves so i can not comment on that.

Price and Value for Money – These are a top professional level glove and at £105 the Revgear S4 is considerably cheaper than the Ringside Alpha series (£135) or the Rival RS1 (£160) and in my opinion the Revgear S4 is right in the mix with Rival & Ringside in that quality range so these are excellent value for money. I’ve heard several people comment they are a better glove than the Cleto Reyes which are over double the price.

Would Suit – Somebody who takes there training seriously who will be using them for the sole purpose of sparring. Pro guys like Arnold Allen (UFC fighter) Mo Abdurahman (Glory K1 & Pro Muay Thai) & Joseph Laws (English ABA Boxing champion 69kgs) all use these gloves across four different sports and we have had great feedback on them here at Fight store Newcastle

Conclusion– The American company Revgear have done an excellent job making in my opinion one of the best Professional sparring gloves on the market and with the added price point of them being priced lower than Reyes, Ringside & Rival its a no brainer for me; these are a must for anyone taking their training seriously and wanting a lace up sparring glove.

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
