Maverik Rome Gloves Review
Thanks for checking out the exclusive Maverik Rome Gloves review! You can find the Rome Goalie Gloves review here. The Rome is the peak of Maverik’s technology. DuraStretch fibers in the palm and fingers for unhindered flex and air flow. Seamless palm for comfort. Sharkskin durable palm. XFoam minimizes impact while a Thermoblast coating ensures maximum cool and comfort.
“They say Rome wasn’t built in a day, neither were these” reads the marketing collateral from Maverik. They claim that the Rome Glove is the absolute pinnacle of their recent research and development and that it offers an “all-star roster of Maverik innovations.” Well here at Lacrosse Scoop we will get to the bottom of it. Sit back, relax, and read away (or at least skim. No? Fine)
One of the first qualities to speak about for these gloves are the new DuaStretch fibers in the palms and fingers which allow for unhindered flex and airflow. These were inspired and actually insisted on by Johnny Christmas, the great professional lacrosse player. Another addition to the palm you will notice is the SharkSkin that adds more durability and grip. The last technologies introduced for the Rome Gloves are the XFoam, which is supposed to minimize impact, and the Thermoblast coating, which ensures maximum cooling and comfort.
I’m not sure about all of these wild names that Maverik is coming out with for all of their technology. Are they really necessary? Well let’s get past the names and the technology, and down to the bread and butter of the gloves. Protection, these things are great. Durability, check. Flexibility, you bet. The largest issue with these gloves seems to be the ventilation. There isn’t enough airflow through the gloves and they turn into little hand ovens. Other than that, they check out just fine. The very last thing is that they run small– so be conscious of that.
And there ya have it! The Maverik Rome Gloves Review is now complete. Let us know what you think about these gloves in the comments section, and we’ll see you on the other side!
