LEVEL Gloves Super Fabric Material - Explained

Several models of LEVEL snowboard gloves and LEVEL ski racing mittens come with "Super Fabric" material. Here's an explanation of what it is, and why you might want it...

What is SuperFabric that appears on some LEVEL gloves?

SuperFabric is a hardened, textured, long lasting material that is very resistant to friction at high speeds. This material's origin is in the medical community. In 1996, Dr. Young-Hwa Kim was challenged to develop a glove that would "stop a medical needle or surgical knife."  He did just that, and SuperFabric was born.

The material is a high end application that is:

  • Abrasion resistant
  • Highly durable
  • Stain resistant
  • Breathable
  • Slash resistant

Ted Ligety designed a line of ski gloves and mittens that featured SuperFabric back in 2014 (under his brand name SLYTECH). LEVEL introduced SuperFabric into it's line of snowboard and ski race gloves in 2017.

Key benefits of SuperFabric in snowboard gloves are:

  • Abrasion resistance
  • Durability
  • Slash resistance
  • Won't snag / gloves slide across snow easily

Which LEVEL gloves feature SuperFabric?

The LEVEL snowboard gloves and ski race gloves that feature SuperFabric are:

LEVEL Ski Racing Gloves with SuperFabric
  • LEVEL SuperPipe Gloves. Have SuperFabric on the palms, thumbs, and inside and outside of your hands. This makes the Super Pipes very durable and allows you to slide with your hands extended without shredding your new snowboard gloves.
  • LEVEL SuperCarve Mittens. Introduced in Fall 2018, the SuperCarve mittens feature SuperFabric on the palms, thumbs, and top of fingers. Again, the result is a very durable mitten that can take the abuse of reaching down at high speed.
  • LEVEL WorldCup CF Gloves. LEVEL's top of the line ski racing mittens feature SuperFabric prominently on the top half of the mittens, and also on key locations on the sides of your hands and thumbs.

LEVEL Gloves with SuperFabric are an example of LEVEL's ongoing commitment to designing the finest ski and snowboard gloves available. High performance, durability, quality materials - with protection built into the designs from Day 1.
