Here at Kingz, we are constantly thinking about design, and how we can produce a gi that is not only exceptionally constructed, but looks on-point in terms of style. And so the Kingz Balistico kimono was born. As a special edition of one of our most popular gis - the Kingz Lightweight kimono, one of the strongest and most technically advanced gis on the market - the Balistico was made to perform.
The Kingz Balistico kimono features a 480 GSM cotton Pearl Weave jacket, made from a single piece of fabric, with ample reinforcements in all the major stress points. The fabric itself undergoes a rigorous preshrinking process, so you never have to worry about your gi getting shorter and tighter with every wash. The lapel is made from synthetic heat resistant vulcanized rubber, covered in the same ripstop material as the pants, which keeps the gi light, allows for faster drying, and keeps your lapel fungus and bacteria free. The jacket is adorned simply in matching Balistico logos (a distinctive eagle design) embroidered on the upper sleeves, on the back underneath the collar, and with Balistico emblazoned under the left rib cage. The pants are made from light, yet extremely durable, 8 oz cotton/polyester ripstop material.
Our favorite details, however, are the NO-Grip sleeve technology and the Coolmax® lining across the inside of the shoulders and side vents of the jacket. An extra layer of ripstop on the inside of the sleeves makes it extremely hard for your opponent to maintain an iron grip. And the patented Coolmax® lining - subliminated with the Balistico eagle design - keeps you cool and refreshed, even during the hardest training session.
What’s with the name, you ask? Balístico, the Portuguese word for "ballistic", refers to the science of the movement of objects or projectiles that are shot or forced to move forward in the air... like you when you're launching yourself toward your opponent.
