LIVERPOOL, N.Y., Feb. 26, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Cascade Maverik Lacrosse, the industry leaders in head protection and lacrosse equipment, announced today that they renewed long-term partnerships with Penn State University, University of Michigan, Villanova University and Fairfield University men's lacrosse teams. The recent signings make Cascade the helmet of choice for more than 70 percent of the Division 1 landscape. The recent agreements maintain Maverik as the #1 hard goods supplier on the Division 1 men's lacrosse field. Penn State, Michigan, Villanova and Fairfield will all wear Cascade helmets and be outfitted in Maverik protective equipment along with its complete line of heads and handles for the program's upcoming 2019 season.
"We are proud of our partnership with Cascade and Maverik Lacrosse due to the quality of our relationship and the quality of their product," remarked Penn State Head Coach Jeff Tambroni.
Each school will wear the newest elite Cascade helmet, the S, customized in its colorways. The S incorporates several new, game-changing helmet technologies, including a new Tri-liner™ impact management system that is integrated with the shell, new Xflo™ ventilation that more than doubles the breathability of previous helmet models and a new Vision Bar™ facemask that ensure the ball is never out of sight. The S is the safest helmet Cascade has ever made.
"You can't fake authenticity and there is a reason why Cascade is trusted by more teams in NCAA D1 men's lacrosse and why Maverik has elevated itself to the #1 brand in lacrosse equipment," stated Kevin Simmons Sports Marketing Manager for Cascade Maverik Lacrosse, "We believe our partnerships are key and directly correlate to our partners' success on the field, which is then passed on to our end customers through our continual improvement process."
All four programs will wear Maverik's best in class impact protection — the Rome line. The Rome line delivers Maverik's full package of innovation and functionality, offering maximum protection and breathability, outstanding fit and the best materials, for world class player performance. Highlighted by the new E-Form™ technology, which allows the Rome line to deliver maximum impact dispersion in a body heat activated, custom contoured fit. Complemented by a full line of heads featuring the latest Optik 2.0 and Havok heads, Maverik is on a tireless mission to offer players high performance product that helps them play their best.
In talking on the agreement, Villanova head coach Mike Corrado commented, "My favorite part of working with Cascade and Maverik is their commitment to offering the most technologically advanced equipment. They also stand behind their product. I know that we are equipped in the safest equipment in the market."
