One of the single best selling keeper gloves of all time, and our personal favorite, the Reusch Magno Deluxe has been the cream of the crop for years, and has yet to meet an equal. The most technologically advanced keeper glove, from the company known world-wide for its keeper innovations, the Magno is loaded with tech from head to toe. M1 Mega Grip palm foam delivers a solid grip that flexes naturally for perfect ball control. Soft backhand foam, embossed at strategic breakpoints, combined with a stretchable PU material, delivers maximum flex without sacrificing the tight fit and feel you need. But for the serious glove techies, the Magno is enhanced with DuraGuard palm patches to prevent palm shredding, SSG lining for improved ball contact, AirVent mesh between the fingers for massive breathability, an advanced backhand ShockShield for serious punching power, and Reusch’s famous Ortho-Tec stay system, which uses individual two-piece braces in each finger to prevent fingers from bending backwards, without sacrificing forward flexibility. A top reviewed, widely loved glove year in, year out, you truly cannot beat the Magno for technology or performance. And with the sweet black and yellow colors, it can’t be beat for style either!
