Electric Foil Jackets
Superior Electric Foil Jackets for Olympic-style Competition
Fencing is a sport that all ages and abilities can enjoy. In a fencing competition, each person must wear a regulation fencing uniform, including a white fencing jacket or a traditionally gray electric foil jacket, called a lamé.
Electric foil jackets are a crucial part of fencing. Without an electric foil jacket, the fencer would not be able to score a touch. Electric foil jackets are made of conductive material, typically metal, that sends the scoring information to the referee/judges.
When putting on the wire and lamé with the fencing jacket, you may need to practice. The body wire attaches to the lamé and runs underneath the jacket. This connection completes the circuit between the two fencers and allows for electrical scoring.
When your fencing gear arrives, practice putting it on so that you become familiar with the feel of your jacket and how your outfit moves. Practicing will help you feel more comfortable when you face an opponent.
High-quality fencing gear can last for many years with the proper care. When shopping for your electric foil jacket, measure according to the instructions. If you have questions, speak with your coach or training team before purchasing.
