Whilst Mitre footballs were once the scourge of Sunday league footballers on cold mornings, the historic brand have been making huge strides over the past 6 years or so, and the Mitre Delta V12 is another huge step forward.
The follow-up to the absolutely phenomenal Tensile from 2010, Mitre describe the Delta V12 as 200 years in the making.
The Delta V12 is the most accurate ball designed by Mitre to date; made of 12 identical panels using a micro fibre material to guarantee unrivalled symmetry. The exclusive 12 panel construction offers enhanced aerodynamics which optimises the accuracy of a shot, without sacrificing the speed or power.
Launched exclusively across all 2012/13 npower Football League and Capital One Cup fixtures, the Delta V12 has been designed with a true spherical shape thanks to the 12 identical panels, which even improves during play.
Each ball’s graphic design is unique; with every one of the 72 Football League clubs having theirown customised match balls printed with club colours and badge.
Set to get it’s competitive debut when Cardiff host Huddersfield in the NPower Championship tonight, Mitre Delta V12 will retail at £85.
