Fairtex BGV1 Gloves

These are Fairtex’s classic Muay Thai glove. If you have trained anywhere in the past you will have seen numerous people wearing these.

The Fairtex BGV1 Muay Thai gloves feature a premium leather covering and are constructed using Fairtex signature three-layered foam system.

These gloves offer a pretty standard fit that are perhaps a little more snug on the hand than the classic Twins BGVL3 gloves. If you are in any doubt about which model to buy, or you are new to Muay Thai then it’s hard to go wrong with a pair of BGV1 gloves.

The Fairtex BGV1s are available in black, blue, red, white, yellow and pink.

Fairtex BGV1-B Gloves

The Fairtex BGV1-B gloves are pretty much identical to the classic BGV1 Gloves but feature a breathable mesh palm (hence the ‘-B’).

They still feature the same three-layer foam system and are constructed of premium leather just like the BGV1s but the added mesh palm allows for additional ventilation to the hands.

In terms of fit, you should find them to be exactly the same as the BGV1s as well.

The Fairtex BGV1-Bs are available in black and red.

Fairtex BGV1-T Thai Pride Gloves

The BGV1-T Thai Pride gloves are a play on the timeless classic BGV1 gloves with an eye-catching Thai Flag design and the first sentence of the Thai National Anthem on the inside wrist.

The BGV1-T gloves are constructed using the same premium Thai leather and feature the same three-layer foam system as the BGV1’s. The hand compartment is where these gloves differ from the BGV1 gloves with the fit being close to that of the BGV19 tight fit gloves.

The BGV1-T gloves also come complete in a gift box making these the ideal for those looking to wow someone with something a little different.

Fairtex BGV9 Mexican Style Gloves

The BGV9 Fairtex Mexican Style gloves are specifically designed for “heavy hitters”. These are a bit more of a specialist glove but they are very popular with bigger individuals who use a lot of power punch techniques when hitting pads or the bag.

The BGV9 gloves feature an extra long cuff, increased knuckle padding and a nylon water repellent lining. The combination of these means that the impact is evenly distributed throughout from the wrist to the head of the glove whilst providing additional wrist support.

If you are a heavyweight or a very heavy hitter these gloves are a fantastic option to ensure you have maximum protection when training.

The Fairtex BGV9s are available in black, white/red and blue/yellow.

Fairtex BGV11 F-Day Gloves

Here is where things begin to differ. The BGV11 F-Day gloves are a limited edition design and come complete with souvenir dog tags and F-Day box.

The BGV11 F-Day gloves are constructed using a premium microfibre material for the outer shell to provide a consistent weight throughout the glove. Microfibre is incredibly durable, flexible and odourless, meaning these gloves will provide maximum longevity and comfort.

Unlike the BGV1 and BGV1-B gloves the BGV11 feature a multi-layered high impact latex foam core and a longer cuff which will provide additional support for the wrist.

These gloves are a little larger than the BGV1 or BGV1-B due to the nature of the longer cuff and there is a little more space in the hand compartment as well.

If you prefer a more classic fit of glove but like the F-Day styling then the F-Day 2 gloves are an excellent option.

Fairtex BGV14 Gloves

The BGV14 gloves are much like the BGV11 F-Day gloves mentioned above. The BGV14 gloves are also constructed using a premium microfibre material, making them incredibly durable, flexible and odourless.

The BGV14 gloves feature a longer cuff and a roomier hand compartment than the BGV1 gloves and are filled with a multi-layer impact foam.

There are plain red, black and pink options as well as the stunning Limited edition ‘Painter’ options available in black with white paint splash and white with colour paint splash.

Fairtex BGV18 Super Sparring Gloves

The BGV18 super sparring gloves are more of a specialist glove designed specifically for sparring.

This unique design of glove offers maximum protection for your sparring partners. The gloves bear bigger “pillow style” padding which make them ideal for sparring, reducing the risk of injury.

The BGV18 gloves utilise the same 3 layered foam core as the BGV1 gloves, but are constructed using the same microfibre material as the BGV11/BGV14 gloves mentioned above.

These gloves are usually only available in sizes 14oz, 16oz and 18oz as their intended use is for sparring rather than bag/pad work.

Fairtex BGV19 Tight Fit Gloves

The Fairtex BGV19 Tight Fit gloves are a relatively recent addition but have proved to be very popular. These gloves feature a tighter fitting hand compartment with additional padding in the knuckle area. They also have an improved thumb position which is slightly more tucked in than on a traditional glove.

The BGV19 gloves are constructed of cow-hide leather just like the BGV1 gloves and still contain Fairtex’s signature three-layered foam system for superior hand and knuckle protection and shock disbursement.

If you have smaller hands or don’t like wearing hand wraps then these gloves are an excellent choice. People with bigger hands that like to wear wraps might find these a little too snug.

The BGV19s are available in black, gold, khaki and red.

Fairtex BGV20 Pastel Blue Gloves

The BGV20 pastel blue gloves from Fairtex offer a similar snug fit to the BGV22 gloves but with a smaller Velcro strap.

These gloves are constructed using premium Thai leather and feature a smooth matte pastel blue finish.

Although the hand compartment is a little more snug than the classic BGV1 gloves it isn’t as tight fitting as the BGV19, making the BGV20 gloves a great option for those who are looking for gloves that are somewhere in between the two.

They are certainly not as tight fitting as the BGV19 but are slightly more snug than the classic BGV1. If you were considering the BGV19 tight fit gloves but felt they might be a little too tight then these are a good option for something somewhere in between.
