Gillette®, the leader in global shave care and industry pioneer, today unveiled its latest product innovation to change the face of shaving yet again: the Fusion ProGlide with FlexBall™ Technology. Inspired by “Shave Face” – the scrunching and stretching that men make to ensure that their razor makes contact with their face – the Fusion ProGlide with FlexBall™ Technology is a razor designed to move to meet a man’s face, rather than the other way around, resulting in maximum contact over contours.

For as long as men have been shaving, they’ve been moving their face to meet the blade. But the Fusion ProGlide with FlexBall Technology is shaving rebuilt. The unique Flexball allows the blade to pivot to bring another range of motion to shaving, for better adherence to the contours and a shaving experience preferred two-to-one over the non-Flexball Fusion ProGlide. The new Fusion ProGlide with FlexBall Technology will be available for sale on-shelf at mass retailers throughout the region beginning September 2015 at starting retail price of SAR 40*.

At an unveiling event on 4th August 2015 at Art Sawa, attendees were treated to a first look at the product. Attendees were invited to take the Fusion ProGlide with Flexball Technology for a spin at shave stations throughout the venue.

As Gillette’s research expert, Ms. Rizzo arrived from the brand’s innovation center, to speak at the launch event. “With FlexBall, Gillette has – once again – declared shaving rebuilt for an unrivaled shaving experience.”
