KEEPERsport meets T1TAN
"SEPARATED BY COLORS, UNITED BY THE CAUSE."
This saying is widely known among fans around the globe. We want to show the world and make an example of ourselves that together two competitors or rivals can also make great projects happen. The T1TAN Beast #KsEdition is AVAILABLE ONCE MORE
Our unrivaled passion for goalkeeper gloves and goalkeeping made this unique collaboration possible. Until recently, Matthias was an enthusiastic goalkeeper and had an active customer account with KEEPERsport before he founded T1TAN.
We were in constant contact on WhatsApp and calls for years before the first personal meeting took place. It was in January, 2020 at the ISPO (International Trade Fair for Sports Articles and Sports Fashion) in Munich.
Both sides immediately realised that everyone shared the same goals: we want the best products for goalkeepers.
Co-op's dawn - the GloveBattle
We held the unique GloveBattle on Instagram in the first weeks of the Corona lockdown. Each day each party had to complete a challenge within a time frame. The challenges were of all kinds:
- There were funny challenges (e.g. cake baking challenge),
- goalkeeper-specific exercises (e.g. juggling balls like Petr Cech),
- product & technical tasks (e.g. DIY: sewing of 4-finger gloves)
- sport challenges too (e.g. push-up challenge on a football).
The now legendary GloveBattle ended with a sporty 10:10.
The joint project
The now unfolded project has been in the back of our heads ever since this January. We have finalised our thoughts and plans during the GloveBattle.
Now the time had come for an Instagram livestream during which we presented the first sample of the T1TAN Beast from the exclusive #KsEdition. Thanks to the positive feedback from both communities, we will produce this goalkeeper glove model and will offer it exclusively in the KEEEPERsport online shop from this summer.
The special touch
These goalkeeper gloves are not only made for you but made by you! Our think-tank resulted in the perfect co-branding on the inside of the latex strap. It reads as follows:
"MY MISSION IS TO STOP YOURS."
You can of course personalize the backhand of your goalkeeper gloves! Give your glove a unique look!
The glove model
We decided that the best would be the the BEAST 2.0. Why? Because the optimized cut on the fingers and the new Mechano 2.0 backhand grants perfect comfort. In addition, the extra long entry with the integrated and flexible latex strap is the optimal stability you need.

Take care of your gloves
Don't throw it carelessly in the washing machine after the game! These gloves have EXCELLENT GRIP, make 'em last longer! Always wash your goalkeeper gloves carefully with the KEEPERsport Glove Cleaner after every game and let them dry with the Glove Dry Buddy from KEEPERsport so that the dirty water does not collect in your fingers.
