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.
