Adidas Hybrid series

One of the most popular series from Adidas boxing gloves is Hybrid series of. There are 3 most populat products:

  • Hybrid 100 – PU (artificial leather) boxing gloves made for starters who need to develop their boxing skill.
  • Hybrid 200 – durable leather boxing gloves. They will last longer and offer better support.
  • Hybrid 300 – premium gloves in series made for professionals (or someone who train like one…)

Adidas Hybrid 100 Training Gloves

Have these in mind only if you’re picking your first boxing gloves. This budget boxing gloves are made from PU (artificial leather) and they are not for heavy and/or frequent training sessions because they are not durable at all.

They are comfortable hook & loop gloves but, except they are PU, they don’t include as much padding as Hybrid 200 or Hybrid 300, they don’t have padding on wrist-locking system and their stitching is not the best.

Comparing Hybrid 100 Training Gloves with other budget boxing gloves, they are very good gloves for absolute beginners.

They come in 2 different color patterns (black/white and black/yellow) and 3 different sizes (12oz, 14oz and 16oz)

Adidas Hybrid 200 Training Gloves

These gloves are midrange gloves in the series and they are made for experienced boxers.

Hybrid 200 Training Gloves are made of premium grade leather. Wrist-locking system includes very good and strong Velcro but it’s not as good as one in Hybrid 300.

Thumb is attached with canvas attachment which makes your thumb secured (and your training partners from accidentally sticking thumb in their eyes).

They are durable boxing gloves, good for both training and sparring but they are slightly worse  version of Hybrid 300 when it comes to wrist support and material. If you’re not on a budget, definitely thing about Hybrid 300 model.

Hybrid 200 come in 4 different color patterns (black/gold, white/black, blue/red, red/blue) and 3 different sizes (12oz, 14oz and 16oz)

There is also laced version of Adidas Hybrid 200 but I have never tried them.

Adidas Hybrid 300 Training Gloves

The Adidas Hybrid 300 Training gloves pack some of the best features that are provided by Adidas’ range of boxing gloves. This pair is an absolute beast when it comes to performance and quality, leaving its competitors far behind at this price level.

This pair features a multi-layer foam and combines impact resistance with unique dampening, making it an excellent choice for professionals, especially for hard heavy bag work.

There is a lot of padding on the top of the glove and wrist locking system is padded as well.

The durable construction and the high-quality material (genuine cowhide leather) used to make this pair mean they are incredibly durable and sturdy. On some gloves, bumps start to appear on top of the glove sooner than they should. It doesn’t affect performance, but aesthetically that might be annoying.

Another great aspect featured in these gloves are the full wraparound wrist strap and they have padding around. Also, extra elastic band is included on wrist-locking system for better protection of your wrist and forearm. With longer cuff, handwraps, that much padding and great hook & loop, you should be good to go! They really took care about safety!

You can rely on these gloves for both training and sparring and also use them for bag or mitts work.

If you’re not absolute beginner and you love to train, grab yourselves a pair of these to get the maximum value for your money.

There are 6 different color patterns and 3 different sizes (12oz, 14oz and 16oz).

There is another version of Adidas Hybrid 300 which is Adidas Hybrid 300 Secure Fit Bag Gloves with different wrist locking system.
