there is a limit to how many blades can be packed into a shaver for a clean shave and as men, we should know better. it is the undulating topography of our face that prevents a true clean shave, or at least makes it more tedious. with the Gillette Fusion ProGlide Manual Razor With FlexBall Technology, Gillette incorporated a ball between the blade cartridge and the handle which allows the cartridge to ride on the facial contours for a more consistence contact, thereby enabling it to reach virtually every hair. pivoted razors are not new and it has a history dating as far back as 1977, but until before FlexBall Technology, it is restricted to just two dimensions. with the FlexBall Technology, razors finally enters the 3D realm, allowing you shave closer even over and around tricky contours like the chin.
just think of 2D pivoting technology as the leaf springs in automotive of yesteryear and the new 3D shaving capability offered by the ProGlide Manual Razor with FlexBall Technology as the modern independent suspension that adds maneuverability (on your face, of course). get the idea now? along with the FlexBall Technology, this newest development from Gillette also features a redesigned handle with a more ergonomic grip and also allows the cartridge a wider range of motion. the Gillette Fusion ProGlide Manual Razor With FlexBall Technology is available for pre-order starting today from Gillette website and is set to hit both online and offline stores in North American starting June 9 for $11.49 a pop. there is also a power version going for $12.59.
