Spalding Never Flat Basketball – Official Size 7 (29.5″)

Spalding Never Flat Indoor/Outdoor Composite Leather BasketballSpalding’s Never Flat basketball is the first-ever ball with proprietary pressure retention technologies guaranteed to hold air up to 10 times longer than traditional basketballs. Traditional basketballs lose air on a consistent basis, resulting in a ball that falls out of official game ball specification within a few months. Spalding’s Never Flat ball utilizes exclusive full-ball construction technologies to dramatically increase pressure retention.

New membrane technology tightens the natural pores in the bladder to improve pressure retention. This exclusive technology is specifically designed to repel the air mixture molecules..

A new membrane and NitroFlate air technology virtually eliminates air’s ability to escape. This new membrane technology tightens the natural pores in the ball’s bladder to improve pressure retention. In addition, proprietary NitroFlate molecules are injected into the ball, forming a protective barrier against air seepage. It also features a redesigned valve with cap to eliminate leaks and keep dirt out.

This official-sized ball provides consistent NBA Game Ball bounce height for at least one year. It’s made from high-performance composite leather, which provides leather-like softness and superior grip.

Outdoor/Indoor? I like the look and feel of the ball, and with regard to outdoor play this ball is second to none. But as for indoor play this ball does not get the job done. I play 3-4 times a week at the YMCA in my home town, and this ball just does not bounce right on the hardwood. For indoor play I would suggest a Wilson evolution or game solution basketball. If you are playing mostly outside on the concrete this is the ball for you!

A. Evangelos says:

Great ball, nice tacky surface I got this ball as a Christmas present and love it. The ball is nice and tacky, feels almost as good as an indoor composite ball.For the previous reviewer that could not figure out how to inflate it further, the air valve is not totally sealed, but stopped. You are able to fit a needle past the block and still inflate the ball. I received mine at about 8 PSI which is a little low to my likings. I inflated it to 9 PSI and it feels great now.

Tarkus says:

Other Reviewers are Misinformed Contrary to what the previous three reviewers have stated you CAN add air to this ball. The ball is guaranteed to stay at the proper pressure for one year. If it leaks during that period return it for a new ball. After a year it may leak like any other ball. Yes there is a cap over the air hole, but that cap can be removed and the ball inflated or deflated. I’ve been informed that this is actually one of Spalding’s more popular basketball for the outdoors.
