Basketball, the second most popular participant sport in the world after football, is continuing to grow, as are the many companies eager to produce high-quality balls for the millions of players around the world. We would like to introduce the Company, which are the FIBA Study Centre Partners and whose products meet the highest quality standards, helping athletes the world over maintain the highest level of play possible.
BADEN SPORTS: "PASSION FOR A BETTER GAME"
Baden is a company that believes the athlete should determine the outcome of the game, not the equipment. This is the premise behind their entire line of Perfection Game Balls: "The ball that lets athletes perform to their highest levels." Baden's Perfection Elite basketball, with its patented symmetrical design and balanced panel widths, eliminates the lumpy, uneven channel cluster found on other balls. These clusters lead to inconsistent play. By spreading out and balancing the channels, Perfection's design provides 48% less channel material in the critical channel crossing areas, ensuring the athlete a consistent feel and bounce. Perfection's patented Stealth Soft-Valve System and Cushion Control Technology has dramatically changed the way basketballs are made. In addition, the Stealth Soft-Valve System, another area associated with bad bounces and inconsistent play, was solved by softening the entire valve panel, making it undetectable to the athlete. These features, along with Perfection's exclusive ultra microfiber cover, provide the best basketball "feel" and truest performance in the game.
