Take your game to the next level with the Baden Element Game Basketball. You'll feel the difference with this ball immediately. Our proprietary, microfiber cover has perfect tack, and won't absorb moisture, gain weight or discolor. To ensure you'll never get a bad bounce, we've included our patented Cushion Control Technology, which embeds thousands of tiny air cells in the carcass, as well as our Stealth Soft-Valve System, which reduces the amount of exposed rubber from the valve stem and softens the entire valve panel. What's more, the Element is the only basketball with a symmetrical design giving you perfect balance and consistency. The Element is NFHS approved and perfect for players of any level.
