Eye-Catching & Practical Design
Patented 12-panel Giugiaro design. Giorgetto Giugiaro, the creator of Molten’s signature GIUIGIARO design and one of the top industrial designers in the world, strives to integrate utility and Italian beauty in his work. This innovative design was created by combining Molten’s innovative technology with his artistic vision.
The eye-catching 12-panel design offers the best visibility, and fingertip control, during play, passing, tackling, stealing, and shooting.
The new synthetic leather surface texture gives the ball an optimum grip over traditional pebble grip basketballs, even when in contact with sweat or moisture.
The Original Leather Texture Surface area in contact with the hand is wider by 95% compared to that of conventional pebble surfaces for better grip.
