Warrior to release new glove, see Team USA gear

Later this year Warrior will be releasing a new glove to the general public. But here’s a sneak peek. The Warrior Wrath will be available for you to purchase this fall, but they are releasing images of the glove now, as Team USA will be putting on the gloves this summer at the 2010 World Lacrosse Championships in England.

The glove will hit stores this fall (not the Team USA version — that’s just for the World games) and you’ll notice some changes from some of the gloves you might be wearing. Warrior made the glove with more of a tapered fit, which gives the glove a tighter fit to your hand. They’ve done this as more players are asking for better and tighter fitting gloves.

This is the first in a trend you’ll see with Warrior gloves, as several of the new models of future gloves will follow this style and be built with a better fit.

The Team USA version of the glove was designed in conjunction With Team USA. The glove has a white leather palms, a cuff with a U.S. flag pattern, and the wrist has a tonal pattern of stripes with stars. The tonal pattern was created so you won’t be able to see the pattern from afar, but you’ll notice it from up close. Oh, and on the inside there is a liner with the presidential seal incorporated (see the shoulder pads below for a better view).

The biggest news of the day is obviously the new glove, but Warrior also released the images of the custom shoulder pads and arm guards for Team USA. Check out photos of the Team USA Warrior Hitman shoulder and elbow pads below, which feature a clean look with white as the dominant color, detailing of the stars and stripes, and gold trim,

The pad liner contains the presidential seal, with a lax twist:

But, wait…there’s more! View an indepth look at the USA cleats.

    You can get all the Team USA equipment at lacrosse.com I think they have some sort of agreement with Warrior, but all the stuff is up on the homepage now

    today i went to the Duke vs. team USA in Orlando at Disney wide world of sports and there was a booth setup and they had all this gear i put on the wrath gloves and they are absolutely phenominal

    I like these a lot. I know Warrior gloves are uncool on the 90% of lax group, and this glove sort of keeps the warrior silhouette, but these are much better and cooler looking than certain recent gloves. First, that stars and stripes cuff is original and dope in my opinion. Second, they’re using the right kind of materials, not the flashy/shiny bs patent leather (why the K18s started using it this year, I dont know…). Also, if they changed to a slimmer fit, this glove might become very popular.

    will the team uniforms be going on sale as well? this looks pretty sweet

    To Flowgo…Team USA will be wearing the Warrior Trojan helmet.

    This gear is mad nice!!!

    Who OK’d these? They look awful. They might be acceptable for Japan, but not for the States. They look about as cool as the mascot does for the FIL World Lax Championships. I wish Warrior would stop landing equipment contracts. I’m sure the talent on the US team will look much better than their gear makes them appear.

    Good job by Warrior. One of the things that bothers me the most is that gloves are too loose and I have to really tighten the wrist for them to feel good. It’s nice that companies are starting to pay attention to this and design new gloves with a closer fit. Can’t wait.

    pretty nice but i really think its time for a new design of the glove…. the sugar daddy’s i liked cuz that was really different from their usual gloves but i have to go with canada i think they will be wearing some coustom sugar daddies which will be sweet

    Warrior could have done MUCH better than this. New nation arm pads are WAY better than these beginning looking ones and the sugar daddies in white with red and blue accents would have killed what ever abomination they are releasing. I pray to God they use the new trojan and not that space helmet.

    An even better option would be brine gear.

    These look great. I know Warrior usually goes nuts but I like how these keep it kind of classy — Not sure if I like the red and blue stitching. Think it would look better with all white, but I like the flag pattern a lot.

    Hey LaxShark. Yes – they are going to be released later this year. The Team USA version is custom just for Team USA, but Warrior will be releasing the stock gloves to the public later this year, so yes, you will be able to pick up a pair.

    So this isn’t just for Team USA but we will be able to buy it too?
