For this certified FIFA Pro soccer ball, our designers used thermobonding technology (seamless) to make it perfectly spherical and to guarantee complete precision during shots. In addition, this technology ensures better waterproofing while training in the rain. Finally, to optimize the spherical shape of this ball, we chose a laminated bladder (fabric strip bonded to the latex bladder) to guarantee even more durable inflation.
We know that during matches, the details make the difference. For this F900 ball, we wanted to pay particular attention to the stability of the ball's trajectory to ensure players and goalkeepers had the best chance of following the ball through the air. To do this, we tested different types of outer paneling and chose the one that showed the best results. This 12-panel design combined with the embossed lines is exclusive to Kipsta.
We have conducted numerous lab tests on the ball in order to provide the excellent accuracy that soccer players require while competing. Each test is outlined below.
Between 15.1 and 15.7 oz in size 5
Between 27" and 27.4".
Average measured variation: maximum 1.5% We measure the ball's spherical shape at 16 different points and assess the recorded discrepancies. If the discrepancy is greater than 1.5% (FIFA PRO Standard), our engineers are tasked with improving the spherical shape to ensure a consistent bounce.
We inflate the ball to the recommended pressure (meaning 0.8 bar). 72 hours later, the ball must not lose more than 15% of its pressure, meaning approx. 0.1 bar. The pressure after 72 hours must, therefore, be at approx. 0.7 bar. This also means that it is quite normal for a ball to lose pressure after a few days.
We simulate rainy playing conditions in a lab by leaving the ball to sit in 0.8" of water on a pivoting support while subjecting it to 250 compressions At the end of the test, the ball can not have absorbed more than 10% of its weight, 1.4 oz for the F900. This is one of the advantages of the thermobonded process; water absorption is limited in comparison to other processes (machine-stitched for example)
Between 53 and 61 in. with a maximum difference of 4 in. between the ball's highest and lowest bounce. Each ball is dropped 10 times on a steel plate from a height of 6'6". The bounce obtained with the F900 ball complies with FIFA Pro requirements.
The most demanding test that this ball is subjected to is the machine shot test. Withstands up to 2500 shots against an inclined concrete surface at 30 mph at a distance of 8 feet. At the end of the test, we check: - the ball's general state: stitching must withstand this test - the circumference: it must not have increased by more than 0.6" - the spherical shape: must not have varied by more than 1.5%. - the air pressure: the ball's loss of pressure must not exceed 0.1 bar
Compliant with international soccer federations' most stringent standards.
Do not completely deflate the ball as this risks damaging the panels' bonding and limits the ball's durability in the future.
