Hayabusa is highly regarded amongst the martial arts community as the gold standard in high-performance MMA equipment and apparel.
Translated from Japanese, the term “Habayusa” refers to the Peregrine Falcon, a predatory falcon which possesses the perfect fusion of speed, power, and strength.
The Peregrine Falcon is also recognized for its extraordinary ability to strike with fierce precision and intensity. The Hayabusa falcon symbolizes the ideal meshing of what fighters strive to achieve in their relentless pursuit of combat supremacy.
This Brand is favorite for producing and distributing a range of boxing gloves, jiu-jitsu gis, compressions, and fight shorts.
In this review, we will talk about one of its favorite products - the Hayabusa Tokushu Regenesis Boxing Gloves.
Concerning design, the Hayabusa Tokushu Regenesis Boxing Gloves is substantially the same as the original version other than some minor aesthetic details.
One of the useful features about this version, though, is its color schemes which are a lot better than the original versions. Its colors and minimalist design do not scream, unlike the older models.
It has a subdued / not too flashy look which appeals not only to MMA fighters but also to regular people who do boxing.
The external appearance includes the falcon logo on the top, imprinted/embossed Hayabusha trade name on the side, as well as inside, which looks sleek and simple. The inside of the glove contains an embossed image which tells you the size of the pair you got.
The thumb compartment is attached to the glove, giving you one solid feel when you throw a punch. This also protects your thumb from getting injured as your thumb may be overstretched if the compartment is not attached to the glove’s body.
It also has a rubber tag which will make it easier for you to take it on and off yourself.
These gloves are also pre-broken which makes it comfortable as you can open up your palm or make a solid clench or fist.
Comfort / Support
The padding is pretty decent, contributing to what makes it good training gloves. It might be a little rough for sparring, though. It also features plates on the top of the glove to give you the extra protection if you are catching punches on your wrist.
The Hayabusa Tokushu Regenesis Boxing Gloves has a patented Dual-X Wrist Closure and Fusion Splinting technologies give you the extra wrist support.
In simple term, this refers to duo Velcro strap mechanism. The first layer is there to lock your wrist, and so it gives that nice snugness. The second layer goes over the first and crosses it.
Dual-X Wrist Closure
University testing, using axial pressure sensors, demonstrated the superiority of this design in guarding against harmful flexion, extension, and twisting.
The wrist closure and splinting reinforce your wrist while you are striking and improves the alignment of your wrist.
This is a great feature to have because it will enhance the performance of your strikes while it keeps your wrists safe from injury.
A clinically proven technology helps keep the hand in perfect alignment with the wrist and arm. The wrist is prevented from bending in suboptimal ways, ensuring strikes are delivered with maximum power and in a manner that avoids injury.
These unique features are definitely useful for players who have hand or wrist injuries, or those with a fracture but still want to train and do not want to hurt their hand.
One of the common complaints in the original Hayabusa Tokushu Boxing Gloves is that the thumb compartment is quite short. For someone who has larger hands and bigger thumbs, this might be uncomfortable especially if the gloves will be used for training. This may also cause injury to the boxer.
The Hayabusa Tokushu Regenesis is designed to have a full suede on the side of the thumb. Good feature because if you are boxing or sparring and you are sweating a lot, you can wipe your sweat off, so it does not drip on your gloves.
Hayabusa has been dedicating a significant portion of their research to improving the technology in their shock absorption materials.
The Hayabusa brand uses high technology in producing synthetic leather. As compared to the original version, the Tokushu Regenesis is an upgrade to the Vylar-2 Engineered Leather.
For those who are very particular in using legit leather in their gears, the Regenesis may not be your type at first glance.
However, the Vylar-2 Engineered Leather has been scientifically proven to outperform regular leather. This is regarding delivering greater abrasion resistance, flexibility, and crack resistance, resulting in unmatched glove longevity.
Moreover, the company’s research has found that the engineered leather like Vylar-2 outlasts regular leather by resisting abrasions, cracking, discoloration, and delamination.
With beating and proper daily training, these are the features you would want your gloves to have. Everyone wants something which will last for years and years, mainly because you are spending a lot of them.
Apart from it is designed to last longer, it also has a washable surface which makes it extremely easy to maintain.
Another unique feature included in the Tokushu Regenesis gloves is that they are made of breathable materials. These materials allow the air to flow through the gloves to keep your hands more relaxed and less sweaty after hours of training.
This feature is made possible by the use of the Hayabusa AG inner fabric, featuring X-Static XT2. This is a silver-ion based anti-microbial technology that delivers anti-odor properties.
This feature regulates the temperature by providing improved ventilation, enhanced breathability, and thermo-regulating properties.
Due to its thermo-regulating properties, this product stays colder more extended than the competitor brands.
Using the advanced FLIR E-Series digital Thermal imaging camera, third-party researchers revealed the superior thermo-regulating effects of the new Hayabusa AG Inner Fabric.
With proper maintenance, these gloves will be free from foul smell you usually experience with boxing gloves.
One good thing about the Hayabusa developers is that they listen to their customers. The Hayabusa Tokushu Regenesis Boxing Gloves is an improvement of Hayabusa’s older glove products, making it a new and improved version that is guaranteed to last for years.
Hayabusa Tokushu gloves do not just protect your hands. One thing that sets them apart from their apparent competitors is that they conduct extensive scientific research to improve their design and materials continually.
Overall it is very hand friendly and compact. This glove is recommendable to new boxers or boxing trainees.
