Molten introduced the new patented 12-panel basketball - a cutting-edge design, providing additional seams when compared to the traditional 8-panel balls manufactured by all other ball makers. More seams, mean better fingertip control for dribbling, passing and shooting. The Molten 12-panel basketball is now used in every top international competition world-wide & has had other brand names trying to follow suit.
MOLTEN X TECHNOLOGY
- The arrival of the new Molten X Basketball Technology was introduced earlier in 2015, when Molten signed with the British Basketball League through to 2020. Molten thus released a new basketball for use at the top level in UK beginning with the GG7X. Updates spot a new look, a new feel, and a new level of performance, as an improvement from the original Molten basketball model.
MOLTEN BASKETBALL CONSTRUCTION
Molten basketballs have four layers of construction; the surface, rubber cover, windings and the bladder.
As well as selecting top quality materials for the outer surface layer of their balls, they have a rubber cover integrated just under the surface which reinforces the windings and bladder beneath. In the BGGX basketball, the basketball contains minute air bubbles in the rubber layer, which gives the basketball a softer feel than the other balls in the range.
The windings have been R&D-ed to get the optimal elasticity for the basketballs, achieved using a nylon-polyester blend.
The core of BGGX basketballs, Molten bladders have an excellent record for air pressure retention, aided by a high retention performance butyl bladder.
MOLTEN X BASKETBALL SURFACE
The most notable differences in the new Molten X Basketball Technology are on the surface of the basketball, where the colour and construction have been tweaked for performance.
Parallel Pebble Surface
The traditional raised bumps have been flattened out on the new GG7X model as well as the others in the GGX range for a smoother finish allowing for better grip and control, thanks to an increase in the contact area between a players hand and the surface.
The pebbles are also modified in terms of shape and placement, to create a geometric & uniform surface across the basketball giving more consistency in touch and performance.
The seams of the basketball have also been flattened out for consistency of performance and touch. This reduces the height difference between the panels and the gaps between the panels.
The all-round flatter construction means a more consistent backspin on the ball for more precise shooting and passing, no matter which position the basketball is held in.
The colour has been tweaked slightly, with the lighter panels being toned down further to give an even greater contrast in the colours across the basketball.
The colour change gives it better visibility on the court, and allows the rotation of the basketball to be seen more accurately at from afar. This allows spectators and TV audiences to get a clearer sight of the way the basketball moves around the court.
The new Molten X Basketball Technology has been implemented across the range of Molten GXX basketballs.
The ever popular GG7 basketball has been revamped into the GG7X and the same is true of the official FIBA GL7X game ball and the GM7X schools & club match-ball. There's also the addition of the brand new Molten GH7X 365 basketball - a hardy, year-round basketball for those who truly believe basketball never stops.
The new GG7X is now the official basketball of the BBL, WBBL and Basketball Ireland.
