The Kingz Balistico 2.0 kimono is our new and improved Balistico.
This is a special edition of one of our most popular gis, the Kingz Lightweight kimono, one of the strongest and most technically advanced gis on the market. Balístico - the Portuguese word for "ballistic" - refers to the science of the movement of objects or projectiles that are shot or forced to move forward in the air... like you when you're launching yourself toward your opponent.
The Kingz Balistico kimono features a 480 GSM cotton Pearl Weave jacket, made from a single piece of fabric, with ample reinforcements in all the major stress points. The fabric itself undergoes a rigorous preshrinking process, so you never have to worry about your gi getting shorter and tighter with every wash. The lapel is made from synthetic heat resistant vulcanized rubber, covered in the same ripstop material as the pants, which keeps the gi light, allows for faster drying, and keeps your lapel fungus and bacteria free. The jacket is adorned simply in matching Balistico logos (a distinctive eagle design) embroidered on the upper sleeves, on the back underneath the collar, and with Balistico emblazoned under the left rib cage. The pants are made from light, yet extremely durable, 8 oz cotton/polyester ripstop material.
Our favorite details, however, are the NO-Grip sleeve technology and the Coolmax® lining across the inside of the shoulders and side vents of the jacket. An extra layer of ripstop on the inside of the sleeves makes it extremely hard for your opponent to maintain an iron grip. And the patented Coolmax® lining - subliminated with the Balistico eagle design - keeps you cool and refreshed, even during the hardest training session.

I highly recommend it!
Amazing touch, and amazing fit
The fit of the gi brand new is very near the measurements stated in the size chart. This is the most accurate size chart I’ve seen as it relates to the actual garment. The gi is light and comfortable. Very good for warm weather. Did I say light? Light without being flimsy. The skirt length is the shortest of all my gis which may explain the light weight. I’m not convinced the ripstop layer under the sleeves actually make it any harder to grab. Nonetheless, the gi is comfortable and exudes quality. I will buy another one soon. Shrinkage. I’m very pleased with the lack of shrinkage. Ok, I did not put it in the dryer. Just air dried with a fan because I do not need it to shrink. It’s only been washed once and so far so good. Again, I like it well enough to buy another one, just in another color. Highly recommended.
I personally don't like the ripstop on the inside of the sleeve. It felt like it would be difficult for me to grip my own sleeve for certain techniques like ezekiel chokes etc. I'm sure Leandro Lo doesn't have a problem, but it's not for me. The service from Kingz was great though. They were quick to respond, and gave me a hassle free refund. I'll probably try the nano or the ultra light in future.
Very good Gi. I`m 175cm/70kg and A1L fits great.
