Technical information

Design

For this FIFA Pro quality football, our designers used thermobonding technology (seamless) to guarantee perfect sphericity and more precise shots. In addition, this technology ensures better waterproofing while training in the rain. Finally, to optimise the sphericity of this ball, we chose a laminated bladder (fabric strip bonded to the latex bladder) to guarantee even more durable inflation.

Exclusive construction

We know that, in matches, the little details make all the difference. For the F950 football, we wanted to create an ultra-reliable ball. We focused on the stability and feel of the ball in play. To do this, we tested different types of outer panelling and chose the one which showed the best results. This 12-panel design combined with the embossed lines is exclusive to Kipsta.

FIFA Pro quality test

We conducted numerous lab tests on the F950 ball in order to provide the excellent accuracy that football players require while competing. Each test is outlined below.

Weight

Between 430 and 445 g in size 5

Circumference

Between 68.5 and 69.5cm.

Sphericity

Average measured variation: maximum 1.5%.
We measure the football's sphericity at 4500 different points and examine the recorded discrepancies.
If the difference is greater than 1.5% (FIFA Pro Standard), our engineers are tasked with improving the sphericity to guarantee consistent bounce.

Maximum pressure loss

We inflate the ball to the recommended pressure (meaning 0.8 bar).
72 hours later, the ball must not lose more than 15% of its pressure, meaning approx. 0.1 bar. The pressure after 72 hours must, therefore, be at approx. 0.7 bar.
This also means that it is quite normal for a ball to lose pressure after a few days.

Water absorption

We simulate rainy playing conditions in a lab by leaving the ball to sit in 2cm of water on a pivoting support whilst subjecting it to 250 compressions
At the end of the test, the ball can not have absorbed more than 10% of its weight, 40 grams for the F950. This is one of the advantages of the thermobonded process; water absorption is limited in comparison to other processes (machine-stitched for example)

Bounce

Between 135 and 155cm with a maximum difference of 10cm between the ball's highest and lowest bounce. Each ball is dropped 10 times on a steel plate from 2 metres in height.The bounce obtained with the F950 ball complies with FIFA Pro requirements.

Shape and pressure retention

The most demanding test that this ball is subjected to is the machine shot test.
Withstands up to 2500 shots against an inclined concrete surface at 50 km/h at a distance of 2.5 m.
At the end of the test, we check:
- the ball's general state: stitching must withstand this test
- the circumference: must not have increased by more than 1.5 cm.
- the sphericity: it must not have varied by over 1.5%
- the pressure: loss of pressure must not exceed 0.1 bar.
