Back in the days a good competition Gi was a heavy GI that made gripping very hard. But as competitors numbers increased, and weight classes got narrower, cutting weight became a priority. Therefore the lightest Gi became generally recognized as the best competition GI.
So how can you have the best of both worlds? how can you manufacture a ultra light competition GI - under 4lbs - and still have the fabric feel like a solid old school GI?
Never shy of a challenge, and never resting on the success of our best selling Champ and Select series we’ve designed a new Gi with the ultimate competitor in mind: the new EVO 2.0 Gi. The secret lays in the use of hybrid fabrics for the top and the pants.
A solid light weight single weave jacket with new light weight foam in the collar guarantees the perfect shape and the feel of a much heavier Gi when gripping ; the rip-stop cotton fabric used for the pants instead guarantees 360′ leg mobility and helps maintain the overall weight under 4lbs!
