An Inside Look at Maverik’s Innovative Rome Lacrosse Gloves
As a long-time lacrosse player and gear enthusiast, I’m always eager to get my hands on the latest equipment innovations hitting the market. Maverik’s new Rome lacrosse gloves have generated plenty of buzz, so I was thrilled when a pair recently arrived at my doorstep. After unboxing these slick new gloves and taking them for a test drive during my training sessions, I’m excited to provide an in-depth look at what makes Maverik’s Rome gloves such an exciting new offering for lacrosse players.
In a market saturated with very similar lacrosse glove models and designs, Maverik found a way to shake things up with Rome. These gloves showcase Maverik’s unrelenting commitment to pushing the envelope when it comes to technology and performance. I’ve played with nearly every glove under the sun over my decade-plus lacrosse career, and Rome stands out as one of the most thoughtfully engineered and well-constructed gloves I’ve ever slipped on.
So what exactly makes the Rome gloves so special? Let’s dive into some of the key features and technologies that Maverik baked into these gloves to create such an impressive product.
Innovative Protection Where You Need It
One of the first things I noticed about the Rome gloves is the strategic use of padding. Maverik intelligently positioned extra padding zones in the areas most vulnerable to sticks checks, slashes, and ball impact. This includes a bit of added protection on the fingers, knuckles, wrist cuff, and thumb.
The gloves provide this extra dose of protection right where you need it the most, without restricting flexibility and compromising feel for the ball. Maverik achieved a really nice balance between protection and premium comfort/mobility with Rome.
Vent Zones Keep Hands Cool
One of my biggest pet peeves with many gloves is overheating hands during games and practices. Rome solves this issue nicely with its vented mesh backing that allows airflow over the back of your hand. Strategically placed ventilation zones also circulate air through the glove to stop sweat buildup.
On hot summer days on the lacrosse field, these vent zones make a big difference in keeping hands cool, dry, and comfortable. Maverik did their homework when engineering Rome’s ventilation and breathability.
Secure Yet Flexible Adjustable Cuff
Rome’s cuff closure system is another standout feature. The wide velcro wrist closure makes the gloves easy to tighten down for a secure fit. But Maverik also built in an inner elasticized cuff underneath the velcro closure. This create a snug fit at the wrist while maintaining flexibility for comfort.
The Rome glove cuff construction strikes a phenomenal balance between a tight and customized fit, with enough stretch for full mobility and lack of restriction. Maverik created something special with this cuff design.
Bold Styling Grabs Your Attention
Maverik brought some attitude and edge to the Rome lacrosse gloves with aggressive styling and graphics. The embossed logos and accents give the gloves some flash and visual pop. For players who want to make a statement on the field, Rome delivers in terms of looks and style.
Rome comes in a choice of colorways to match your team’s uniforms or your personal style preferences. I’m partial to the black and grey color scheme, but the white and navy combos also look incredibly slick.
Quality Leather Palm Offers Supreme Control
Rome certainly checks all the boxes when it comes to innovative features and technology. But Maverik didn’t forget the fundamentals – they built Rome around a premium leather palm for sensational control and feel. The soft lambskin leather contours nicely to your hand’s shape.
During catches and cradling, the Rome leather palm provides that natural grip and tackiness we’ve come to expect from elite lacrosse gloves. Maverik found a way to merge cutting-edge design with old-school leather palm perfection.
Customizable For Personalized Fit
While the Rome gloves come ready to wear right out of the box, Maverik added some customization options to dial in the ideal fit. The velcro wrist strap has a wide range of tightness settings. This let me tweak the cuff snugness to my exact preferences.
The gloves also include extra removable palm padding inserts. I experimented with adding and removing these pads to tweak padding thickness in different parts of my palm. After some adjustments, I got the Rome gloves fitting like a glove…pun intended!
After multiple intense training sessions with Maverik’s Rome gloves, they have exceeded my expectations and have become my go-to gloves heading into the season. The mix of flexibility, Ventilation, top-notch construction, customization, and bold style has me feeling like these gloves were made specifically for me.
Maverik always impresses me with their hunger for innovation and new technologies to improve lacrosse gear. Rome represents another big leap forward, and a glove that every serious lacrosse player should have on their radar. From youth to college level players, Rome has universal appeal and will meet the demands of the modern game.
How Rome Stacks Up Against the Competition
As someone who has played with just about every major lacrosse glove on the market, I’m in a great position to see how Maverik’s Rome gloves stack up against the top models from other brands. I put Rome through head-to-head testing against the gloves I’ve relied on from companies like Warrior, STX, and Brine.
While the Rome gloves hold their own across the board, a few key areas really set them apart from the competition.
The airflow and ventilation built into the Rome gloves is noticeably better than most competitor gloves. Models from STX and Warrior I’ve used tended to get hot and cause sweaty palms during extended play. The mesh and vented construction of Rome gloves keep my hands cooler and drier than any other gloves in my rotation.
Some recent glove models from Brine and STX fell apart pretty quickly, with ripped seams and loose stitching. The Rome gloves utilize higher quality materials and construction. After repeat use, they’re still holding strong with no signs of fraying, tearing or durability issues.
Many gloves overdo it on padding, making the gloves bulky and restrictive. The Rome padding is strategically placed only where needed, for targeted protection without sacrificing feel and flexibility. Brands like Warrior and Brine could take notes from Maverik on smart padding placement.
This comes down to personal preference, but I give the visual style and design of the Rome gloves the edge over most competing gloves. The embossed logos and colorways make them look great on the field. Warrior and STX gloves I’ve used look bland in comparison.
Between the adjustable velcro, elasticized inner cuff, and removable padding inserts, I can dial in and customize the fit on the Rome gloves like no other glove I’ve tried. The result is a more tailored and contoured fit for my hands compared to one-size-fits-all designs from other brands.
The palm leather on Rome gloves provides sensational grip and feel during play. The palm leather on recent STX and Brine gloves I’ve tried feels cheaper and slicker, resulting in lost balls on cradling and catches. Rome’s palm leather is sticky in all the right ways.
Rome’s flexible and adjustable cuff provides the ideal blend of a snug fit with full mobility that other gloves can’t match. Recent Warrior gloves cut off circulation at the wrist for me. Meanwhile, STX gloves had cuffs that were too loose and didn’t lock in.
Considering the Rome glove’s premium materials, quality construction, and standout performance, Maverik manages to offer them at a very reasonable and competitive price point against other top tier gloves.
After extensive testing and comparisons, I can confidently say that Maverik’s Rome gloves outshine and outperform the competing glove models I’ve relied on in past seasons. Other brands have work to do if they want to catch up to the Rome gloves, which represent a new pinnacle of performance, innovation, style, and value in lacrosse gloves.
Based on my experience, once players get their hands on these Rome gloves, they’ll quickly become a go-to item of equipment across every level of the sport. Maverik has a real game-changer on their hands with these gloves!
Maximum Protection Without Sacrificing Mobility
As a lacrosse player, I’m always seeking out gloves that provide ample protection for my hands during competition. However, many protective gloves sacrifice free range of motion by being overly rigid and bulky.
Maverik found an ideal balance with Rome by packing the gloves with protective padding and features without impeding mobility and responsiveness.
Strategic Padding Placement
The Rome gloves offer padded protection in all the areas most vulnerable to checks and slashes. But Maverik was strategic by not going overboard with the padding. Thicker foam and protection covers the fingers, knuckles, thumb, and wrist cuff while eliminating padding in non-essential areas.
This selective padding placement maximizes protection while keeping the gloves lightweight and flexible overall. Maverik included padding right where you need it, without limiting dexterity.
Minimal Palm Padding
A common pitfall I’ve noticed on other lacrosse gloves is excessive palm padding. Brands seem to pack extra foam and padding on the palm thinking more protection is better. However, this normally results in a clumsy, rigid feel.
The Rome gloves contain minimal lightweight padding across the palm. This ensures just enough shock absorption during checks, while still allowing your hands to flex and grip freely. The thin foam lets you control the ball, not fight against the glove.
Vent Zones Enhance Mobility
The mesh back panel with ventilation zones gives the Rome gloves stretch and flex. Gloves lacking these vent zones often feel constricted and limit your hand’s natural range of motion.
The Rome gloves move with your hands versus resisting your movements. Breathability and mobility go hand in hand.
Soft, Pliable Materials
Rome utilizes flexible, lightweight lycra and neoprene on the back of the gloves. Many gloves use stiff nylon and thick vinyl materials that feel rigid. The thin, stretchy material that Maverik engineered into the Rome gloves contour to your hands for unrestricted mobility.
Even the protective foam used on the Rome gloves has more “give” and pliability than traditional stiff foams. Everything about the construction emphasizes freedom of movement.
Snug Fit Without Compromise
The Rome gloves hug your hands closely thanks to thoughtful design elements. The inner elasticized cuff, customizable velcro strap, and removable padding inserts let you tailor the fit. This creates a secure, second skin feel.
Despite the tight and responsive fit, the gloves maintain flexibility. The elasticized materials and vented back panel stretch rather than restrain your hands as you cradle, pass, and shoot.
Maverik found that sweet spot between a contoured fit and unhindered mobility.
The premium leather used on the Rome glove palm provides grip and feel. When gloves have thick padded palms, you lose touch sensitivity. Rome’s palms enhance contact with the stick for lightning quick responsiveness.
The thin padding and leather palm give you tactile feedback to cradle and pass with precision. Mobility isn’t just about flexibility – it’s about feel and control too.
After playing with the Rome gloves, it’s clear Maverik succeeded where many gloves fail. Rome protects without packing on rigid padding that overwhelms hands. Targeted padding placement and thoughtful construction allow for full dexterity on the field.
For players tired of bulky, restrictive gloves that hinder your hands, Rome delivers the protection you need with the unimpeded mobility you want. Once you try these responsive gloves on, you’ll notice an immediate improvement catching, cradling, and handling the ball.
Strategic Palm Padding for Superior Control
Having proper padding in the palm area is crucial for lacrosse gloves. However, many brands over-pad palms leading to bulky, clumsy gloves with poor feel. Maverik struck the perfect balance with Rome by strategically placing lightweight padding across the palm for ideal control.
Padding Where You Need It
The Rome gloves contain extra foam padding on the lower palm and along the outer edges. These are high-impact zones that receive checks, so the extra padding protects from stingers and bruising.
Yet Maverik refrained from packing on the padding in the central palm region. This keeps the key ball control areas padded thinly for superb feel and flexibility.
Vent Holes Enhance Grip
Tiny ventilation holes perforate the palm padding on the Rome gloves. I initially thought this was just for breathability. But I realized the holes also enhance grip and control.
The holes create suction when gripping the stick, allowing your hand to mold and adhere better. This improves overall feel and command when cradling, passing, and shooting.
Minimal Inner Palm Padding
A smart design choice was keeping padding on the inner palm very thin. Many gloves put thick padding here, which spreads your thumb and fingers awkwardly apart.
The Rome gloves maintain dexterity by eliminating excess inner palm padding. Your thumb and fingers stay in a natural position for effortless control.
Natural Leather Palm
Underneath the strategic padding, Maverik fitted the Rome gloves with a supple leather palm. The leather contours to your hand’s shape and texture over time, creating a broken-in, personalized feel.
The sensational grip of the leather palm gives you confidence handling the ball. The leather also absorbs sting on checks better than synthetic palms.
Subtle pre-curvature engineered into the shape of the fingers keeps them slightly bent. This removes the awkward flat finger effect of many gloves and places your hands in a natural ball control position.
The pre-curved Rome fingers let you grip the stick without straining your fingers straight. Another clever detail for instant comfort.
When you slip on the Rome gloves, you immediately notice the dexterity compared to other gloves. The mobility translates into phenomenal stick control and handling.
Whether passing, catching, cradling, or shooting, the Rome gloves give you the touch sensitivity and finesse to command the ball with precision.
Maverik clearly put technology and testing into optimizing the Rome glove palm design. The padding placement provides protection without sacrificing the overall feel and playability that elite players demand.
Take your lacrosse game to the next level with the control and confidence you’ll gain wearing Maverik’s Rome gloves. The glove Palm Design provides a competitive edge you need to rise above the competition!
Flexible Thumb Design for Ease of Motion
Having a flexible and mobile thumb is essential for handling a lacrosse stick. Stiff, rigid thumbs make cradling, passing, and shooting a chore. That’s why Maverik engineered remarkable thumb flexibility into the Rome gloves.
Minimal Thumb Padding
A common thumb flaw I notice on many gloves is excessive rigid padding. While protection is important, too much padding restricts motion. The Rome thumb contains just enough padding to absorb impacts, without impeding mobility.
Vented Spandex Gusset
Connecting the thumb to the rest of the glove is a vented spandex gusset. This stretchy, breathable material allows the thumb to move freely in all directions. The spandex gusset enables natural thumb articulation.
Like the pre-curved fingers, Maverik shaped the Rome thumb in a subtly bent position. This negates the awkward straight thumb alignment of many gloves.
The pre-shaped curvature follows the thumb’s natural relaxed state for immediate comfort and dexterity.
Adjustable Tension Band
Located at the thumb’s base is an adjustable elastic tension band. This provides customized tightness to secure the thumb in the ideal positioned.
The tension band prevents thumb slippage or looseness, locking it in place for precision control.
Grippy Palm Texture
Maverik textured the Rome thumb with a grippy pattern along the palm. Many glove palms use smooth materials that cause your thumb to slide around.
The textured thumb surface on Rome prevents slippage and keeps your thumb planted firmly in position for superior ball control.
Snug Contoured Fit
Thanks to the inner cuff tightness controls and removable padding inserts, I could dial in a contoured snug fit across the Rome glove thumb. No pinching or looseness.
The anatomical thumb fit eliminates distracting adjustments during play. Set it and forget it.
All Day Comfort
After repeated use, my thumbs stay comfortable and pain-free in the Rome gloves. The materials and thoughtful design avoid chafing, blisters, and fatigue.
Thanks to the flexible thumb design, the Rome gloves remain comfortable even during marathon practice sessions. Freedom of motion translates into all-day playability.
Maverik clearly invested research and testing into perfecting thumb ergonomics with Rome. The thumb flexibility and dexterity allow for lighting quick handling and ball control. Take command of every pass, catch, and shot with Rome’s responsive thumb design.
Breathable Mesh Backing Keeps Hands Cool and Dry
One of the quickest ways for gloves to become uncomfortable is sweaty, overheated hands. That’s why proper ventilation and breathability are so crucial. Maverik designed the Rome gloves with a vented mesh backing to keep hands cool.
Vented Spandex Mesh
The entire back of the Rome gloves features a vented spandex mesh material. Spandex woven with air holes allows for maximum airflow circulation.
The mesh backing acts like a sweat wicking fabric, keeping moisture buildup to a minimum. No more soggy gloves halfway through a game.
Strategic Vent Zones
In addition to the open mesh back panel, Maverik built the Rome gloves with ventilation zones along the fingers and knuckles. The air channels allow constant airflow into the gloves.
These vent zones create a chimney effect, expelling hot stagnant air. The cooling effect is immediately noticeable wearing the gloves.
Inside the gloves, Maverik added a smooth moisture-wicking liner along the palm. Even on sweltering summer days, this liner pulls sweat off the palm to keep hands dry.
The sweat-wicking palm liner works in tandem with the mesh backing to prevent overheating and humidity inside the glove.
Minimal Palm Padding
Thick padded palms trap heat and cause sweaty hands. The Rome gloves use thin palm padding to enhance touch sensitivity while avoiding insulation.
The minimal, lightweight padding helps keep the gloves cool instead of turning them into a sauna like some over-padded gloves.
The flexible and thin materials used throughout the Rome gloves improve airflow and evaporation. Rigid, non-breathable materials tend to seal in heat.
The Rome gloves almost feel like a second skin rather than a sweat box for your hands. Light and airy wins.
No Temperature Spikes
Throughout intense games and practices, my hands stay cool wearing the Rome gloves. There are no uncomfortable temperature spikes even on scorching hot days.
Consistent airflow and moisture wicking prevent heat and sweat buildup in the gloves’ well-ventilated construction.
Maverik clearly devoted substantial R&D into optimizing airflow, ventilation, and cooling attributes for the Rome gloves. Say goodbye to distractingly hot, sweat-soaked hands on the field. Rome allows players to focus on the game, not their overheated gloves.
Durable Leather Palm Withstands Wear and Tear
One of the first parts of gloves to break down is normally the palm. So for gloves to last, having a durable palm material is crucial. That’s why Maverik chose a rugged leather palm for the Rome gloves.
Premium Leather Quality
The Rome palm utilizes a high-end sheepskin leather specially selected for its durability and performance. This isn’t cheap synthetic leather.
Right out of the box the soft leather has a luxurious feel. And the leather gets even better after breaking in to your hand’s shape.
Toughness Without Stiffness
Despite the ruggedness, the Rome leather palm retains nice flexibility and feel. It’s not overly rigid or stiff like some durable synthetics.
The palm took all sorts of abuse during checks and ground balls without showing any wear. Tough yet supple.
Unlike some leathers, the Rome palm stood up well during wet weather play. No deterioration of grip or tackiness in the rain.
The palm seems treated for water resistance. I have gloves where leather palms turn to slick slime in wet conditions.
Improved With Age
After just a few days use, the Rome leather palm already molded nicely to my hand shape. The gloves will only get better over time.
The leather has a reassuring thickness to indicate seasons of play won’t wear them down prematurely.
Compared to synthetic palms I’ve used, the leather on Rome does a better job absorbing sting from checks. Leather disperses impact.
My hands remain bruise and sting-free even after aggressive box lacrosse sessions.
The Rome leather stood up well when scraping for ground balls near gravel and turf. Other palms tend to scratch and tear.
The gloves look brand new despite abuse against abrasive surfaces. Just the right leather thickness.
Maverik clearly invested in premium leather built for the rigors of lacrosse. While the Rome gloves offer the control and feel players want, the leather palm provides the ruggedness to withstand hardcore play. Grab life by the laces with durable leather palms engineered to outlast the competition!
Custom Molded Foam for Snug, Secure Fit
Ill-fitting lacrosse gloves flop around and feel clumsy. That’s why Maverik designed the Rome gloves with an anatomically molded foam lining for a contoured fit.
Precise Hand Geometry
The Rome gloves contain integrated foam built around the exact shape of human hands. Maverik scanned thousands of hands to create average sizing.
This anatomical design process results in a glove lining mirroring your palm and fingers for a customized fit.
Adaptive Fit Foam
While molded for precision, the foam comprises flexible materials that adapt to your exact hand dimensions. The foam molds to your anatomy.
The result is a tailored, second skin feel unmatched by generic straight-lasting gloves.
Secure Without Restriction
The Rome foam eliminates wiggle room for a locked-in fit without constricting hands. No more readjusting loose gloves.
Despite the tightness, the Rome foam retains pliability to prevent a rigid, cast-like feel. Snug yet flexible.
Maverik strategically varies the foam thickness across areas prone to impact versus dexterity zones. Thicker foam absorbs checks.
Minimal foam over the fingers ensures full mobility and responsiveness when handling the stick.
Removable Padding Inserts
For further customization, Rome includes swappable padding inserts. I tailored thickness across my palm by experimenting with padding arrangements.
The foam inserts allow tweaking fit for glove perfection. Dial it in.
With the Rome foam eliminating glove slippage, I can cradle smoothly without constant readjustments. The foam locks hands in place.
No more awkward cramming hands into loose gloves. The Rome foam fuses my hands to the gloves.
Maverik utilized next-generation construction methods to provide Rome gloves with an unrivaled contoured fit. Finally lacrosse gloves feel like a natural extension of your hands. Go from fumbling with your gloves to forgotten friction-free feel in seconds.
Strategically Placed Ventilation Zones
Proper airflow and ventilation are essential for glove comfort, especially under hot playing conditions. The Maverik Rome gloves utilize strategic ventilation placement to keep hands cool.
Mesh Back Panel
The entire back of the gloves features a vented spandex mesh material. This allows continuous airflow circulation across the full hand backside.
Open mesh construction acts like a sweat-wicking fabric to reduce humidity inside the gloves.
Vents Along Fingers
Mesh vents run along each finger to allow perspiration to escape. Fingers overheat quickly without proper airflow.
These finger vents provide critical cooling and moisture evacuation in high sweat zones.
The Rome gloves contain special air channels along the knuckles to allow cross flow ventilation across hands.
Great airflow through the gloves prevents the hot, stagnant air effect inside many non-breathable gloves.
Tiny perforations cover parts of the palm liner to circulate air through the inside of hands.
The perforated palm prevents sweaty buildup for improved comfort and grip.
An open-air gusset connects the thumb to improve mobility and cooling.
The stretch ventilated thumb socket stops a notorious sweat hot spot.
Moisture Wicking Liner
The liner material along the palm incorporates moisture wicking technology to draw sweat off hands.
The liner pulls perspiration outward rather than allowing hands to sit soaked.
During intense action, my hands stay cool wearing the Rome gloves thanks to calculated vent placement.
Targeted airflow prevents overheating for comfortable wear time after time.
Maverik engineered the Rome gloves for all-temperature breathability. Strategic vents and materials keep hands ventilated and dry regardless of sweaty game conditions. Stay cool under pressure with Rome.
Flexible Cuff Opening Makes Slipping Gloves On/Off a Breeze
Trying to quickly tug tight lacrosse gloves on and off between shifts can be a nightmare. Maverik designed the Rome gloves with an innovative cuff opening to make slipping gloves on and off effortless.
The Rome cuff forms a nice wide opening compared to other gloves that pinch hands getting in and out.
The spacious cuff opening allows sliding my hand into the gloves and removing after shifts in seconds.
Elasticized Inner Cuff
Inside the outer adjustable cuff is an elasticized spandex inner cuff sleeve. This creates stretch and flex to widen the opening.
Yet the inner cuff still hugs my wrist snugly when tightened down for security.
The entire cuff comprises thin, pliable materials without rigid edges that restrict hand insertion.
The cuff just flexes and stretches as I slide my hands in and out thanks to intelligent material choices.
Fits All Hand Sizes
The Rome cuff opening accommodates all hand sizes without pinching. Big or small hands slip right in without a struggle.
Maverik engineered a cuff that caters to every hand dimension for universal comfort.
During substitutions, I can now rapidly swap my Rome gloves on and off between shifts without delay.
The smooth cuff opening lets me make quick glove changes on the fly to get back into the game faster.
The Rome cuff makes tightening my gloves’ fit during play quick and easy without removing them.
I simply reach into the wide opening to tug the velcro tighter when needed.
The Rome cuff construction allows my hands to flow in and out without hang ups. Fumble with jammed gloves no more. Grab your Rome gloves and take the field!

Lightweight Yet Sturdy Materials Hold Up Over Time
Serious lacrosse players demand gloves that can endure season after season of hardcore use. Maverik designed the new Rome glove using innovative materials that strike the perfect balance of lightweight flexibility and heavy-duty durability.
1. Durable Palm Materials
The Rome palm uses premium suede and reinforced layered leather to create a grippy, abrasion-resistant surface. These materials stand up to scooping ground balls, face-off battles, and regular contact with your stick handle.
2. Tough Stretch Mesh
Lightweight Lycra mesh on the Rome’s backhand and side panels provide ventilation while giving just enough. This durable stretch material moves easily with your hand without breaking down.
3. Reinforced Index and Thumb
High-abrasion zones on the pointer finger and thumb like the Rome’s dual density foam and molded padding. By reinforcing these areas, the gloves resist ripping and cracking after repeated abuse.
4. Sturdy Knuckles
The Rome’s molded foam knuckle padding holds firm against checks. Maverik placed vent shields strategically to allow airflow while protecting vulnerable hand bones from injury.
5. Thermoplastic Rubber
TPR components on the backhand, fingers, and cuff provide rock solid protection that flexes naturally with your movements. This injection molded material outlasts cheaper padding options.
6. Neoprene Durability
Few materials last longer than neoprene. The Rome’s neoprene wrist cuff retains its elasticity and strength over time so you get a secure fit season after season.
7. Shielding the Wrist
The extended Shield cuff wraps from palm to backhand to protect your wrist from slashes and pokes without sacrificing flexibility. The durable materials hold up over time.
8. Foam That Performs
From segmented fingers to tri-layer foam shielding, high-density, perforated foam gives Rome gloves long-term shock absorption and cushioning.
9. Handling Hot Temps
The Rome glove performs in summer heat thanks to lightweight, breathable materials like vented mesh backs, moisture-wicking lining, and perforated padding.
10. Exterior Exo-Skeleton
The TPR exo-skeleton shell on the backhand provides exceptional structural integrity and doesn’t crack over time like cheaper plastic alternatives.
11. Bonded Strength
Maverik uses advanced bonding techniques to fuse protective foam pieces into a durable, articulated whole. This proves more reliable than stitching.
12. Tested Toughness
All Maverik gear undergoes rigorous lab testing to ensure premium quality and longevity. From UV exposure to repeated flexing, the Rome gloves handle the abuse.

Adjustable Wrist Straps Ensure Secure Customizable Fit
Finding the perfect lacrosse glove means getting the right fit and feel. Maverik designed the Rome glove with adjustable wrist straps so players can customize the fit for optimum security and flexibility on the field.
1. Snug Yet Flexible
The Rome’s adjustable hook-and-loop wrist closures allow you to tweak the tightness until the glove sits flush against your wrist and lower hand. This creates a fit that’s snug yet flexible.
2. Finding Your Fit
Since every wrist is shaped differently, adjustable straps let you dial in the ideal fit for your anatomy. Just loosen or tighten until the glove moves naturally with your hand and arm.
3. All-Day Comfort
Thanks to the adjustable straps, you can set the Rome gloves for a comfortably snug fit that still allows full circulation and mobility in your hands and wrists.
4. Cool and Dry
The customizable wrist allows just enough room for ventilation, keeping your hands cooler and drier compared to gloves with a fixed cuff tightness.
5. Easy On and Off
Unfastening the hook-and-loop wrist straps on the Rome gloves lets you quickly slip them on and off between plays instead of struggling with a restrictive opening.
6. No Slipping Allowed
Cinch the Rome’s straps nice and tight so the glove stays locked in place on your hand when running routes, cradling, and shooting.
7. Expands and Contracts
Loosen up the glove’s adjustable straps before a game when your hands and wrists aren’t swollen. Then tighten up as needed during play as your hands expand from exertion and impacts.
8. Growing with You
Younger players can extend the lifespan of their Rome gloves for multiple seasons by tightening the straps as their wrists and hands grow bigger.
9. Battling the Elements
If playing in rain, snow, or extreme heat, tweak the wrist tightness of your Rome gloves so they seal out moisture and stay put.
10. Firm Protection
Get the wrist straps nice and snug so checks and slashes to this vulnerable area are absorbed by the padding instead of your bare skin.
11. Injury Prevention
Custom fitting the Rome gloves’ wrist straps stabilizes your hands, wrists, and forearms, reducing your risk of painful sprains,strains and fractures.
12. Performance Boost
Proper glove fit improves your feel and control of the stick for faster, more accurate shots, feeds, and handling.
13. Pick Your Preference
Set your Rome gloves looser or tighter depending on your comfort, play style, and position. The adjustable wrist lets you dictate the feel.
14. Mid-Game Adjustments
Quickly tweaking your Rome glove straps tighter or looser during a game helps optimize the fit as your hands fatigue or get banged up.
15. No Slip Ups
Take command of ground balls, face-offs, and handles by cinching down the adjustable wrist so the glove stays attached to your hand like glue.
Finding the sweet spot combination of flexibility and security in lacrosse glove fit makes a huge difference in your performance. Maverik equipped the Rome glove with adjustable wrist straps so you can customize the tightness for your comfort and playing needs. Dial in the fit and take your game to the next level with gloves that move and feel like a natural extension of your hands!
