Product Features

Soccer Ball Hybrid Size 5 F550 is designed for

Our design teams made the F550 ball with a thicker outer material to increase the ball's lifespan. The 24-panel design also improves stability.

Stable trajectory

We know that a stable trajectory is very important, particularly for long games or when playing as a goalkeeper. We've changed the construction of the outer cover to improve stability. Traditionally designed using 32 panels, we've designed the F550 using 24 identical panels. This improves the stability of the ball and makes it more comfortable to play with.


Between 13'9" and 14'7" (Size 5) Between 11'6" and 12'10" (Size 4)


Between 27" and 27.4" (Size 5) Between 25" and 26" (Size 4)


Average measured variation: maximum 1.5%. We measure the soccer ball's sphericity at 16 different points and examine the recorded discrepancies. If the discrepancy is greater than 1.5% (FIFA PRO Standard), our engineers are tasked with improving the sphericity to ensure a consistent bounce.

Minimal loss of pressure

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.

Water absorption

We simulate rainy playing conditions in a lab, leaving the ball to sit in 0.8" of water on a pivoting support while subjecting it to 250 compressions. By the end of the test, the ball must not have absorbed more than 15% of its weight, or approx. 2.1 oz for this F500 in size 5.


Between 53" and 61" with a maximum difference of 4" between the ball's highest and lowest bounce. Each ball is dropped 10 times on a steel plate from a height of 6'6".

Shape and pressure retention

The most stringent test we put this ball through is the shooting machine 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 sphericity: it must not have varied by over 1.5% - the pressure: the ball's loss of pressure must not exceed 0.1 bar


Our design team watched soccer players in action on the pitch to develop this Hybrid ball. This ball is a hybrid due to a concept that combines the comfort of machine sewing with the durability of hand sewing. We also used a bladder with thread winding (1.25 miles of thread is wrapped around the bladder) to ensure lasting inflation and better sphericity.



Product testing

Tested in use by a group of 20 intermediate players. The results of the new panel design were very promising. The trajectory of the ball was more stable compared to a 32-panel ball. In addition, the F550 ball meets all FIFA requirements and can therefore be used in competition.
