We created this hybrid F500 football for youngsters playing at a club level looking for a comfortable and durable football. For this F500 hybrid football, our design teams chose to use a foam inner cover for extra comfort during play and invisible stitching for greater durability.

Technical Information

Design

Our design team watched football players in action on the pitch to develop this Hybrid ball.
This ball is a hybrid due to a concept that combines the comfort of machine sewing with the durability of hand sewing.
We also used a bladder with winded thread (2 km of threads are wrapped around the bladder) to ensure durable inflation and better sphericity.

Weight

Between 310 and 340 g (Size 3)

Circumference

Between 60.5 and 62.5 g (Size 3)

Sphericity

Average measured variation: maximum 1.5%.
We measure the football's sphericity at 16 different points and examine the recorded discrepancies.
If the discrepancy is greater than 1.5% (FIFA PRO Standard), our engineers are tasked with improving the sphericity to ensure a 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, leaving the ball to sit in 2 cm of water on a pivoting support while subjecting it to 250 compressions.
By the end of the test, the ball must not have absorbed more than 15% of its weight, or approx. 50 g for this F100 in size 3.

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 a height of 2 metres.

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: it must not have increased by more than 1.5 cm
- the sphericity: it must not have varied by over 1.5%
- the pressure: the ball's loss of pressure must not exceed 0.1 bar
