They say Rome wasnt built in a day, neither were these. The Rome Glove is the pinnacle of our research and development efforts, featuring an all-star roster of Maverik innovations. Johnny Christmas insisted on our new DuraStretch fibers in the palms and fingers for unhindered flex and airflow. SeamlessPalm and Sharkskin add supreme durability and feel. Also new for 2012, XFoam technology minimizes impact, while the Thermoblast coating ensures maximum cooling and comfort. Rome is Maverik engineering worthy of the gladiators who wear them.
