The history of the volleyball ball
In the early days
Materials and Downsides
This is the type of materials used to cover the outside of the volleyball from the early days.
This pigs bladder was what was used in the centre of the volleyball to make it bounce and being able to hit it up in the air.
This picture shows a rubber outline and this was and still is used to keep the volleyball in shape.
Indoor volleyballs may be solid white or a combination of two or three different easily distinguishable colors. They are made in two versions: the youth version is slightly smaller and weighs much less than an adult volleyball and than the standard version to accommodate youth's use.
Beach volleyballs are slightly larger than standard indoor balls, have a rougher external texture, and a lower internal pressure. They can be brightly colored or solid white. The very first volleyballs were made from leather paneling over a rubber carcass.
Advanced Volleyball Technology
Super soft composite leather with micro-soft layer
Micro-fiber ensures that the synthetic ball is as soft as a genuine leather ball. It absorbs perspiration as well as genuine leather, while keeping the surface dry (in fact, better than genuine leather).
Molten's rubber cover layer is fused with a thread-woven lower layer to create better feel and durability.
A unique Molten idea, With this unique technology, the thread-woven construction achieves an ideal soft touch.
Dual-layer laminated butyl bladder
Our butyl bladder has extremely low air-permeability to prevent leakage.
