Nike Unveils New NFL Uniforms Today

April 3, 2012


As Reebok’s 10-year contract expired with the NFL yesterday, Nike has grabbed the reigns of NFL Apparel including uniforms for the next 5 years. While most of the uniforms will not change much from a design factor,  from statements throughout the league the changes will be more of a fabric and material change.

According to Nike the “Elite 51” jersey’s key features are..

  • LIGHTER – The Nike jersey and pant, wet or dry are lighter than previous versions
  • FLYWIRE TECHNOLOGY – Eliminates layers, reduces weight, and provides lockdown fit
  • ZONED MESH VENTILATION – Provides cooling zones for optimal thermoregulation
  • ZONED STRENGTH  High tenacity, stretch material, for lightweight lockdown strength.
  • CUT FOR MOBILITY – Fourway stretch, hydrophobic materials enable range of motion wet or dry.
  • STRETCH TWILL NUMBERS – Four-way stretch even on numbering system
  • CUSTOMIZABLE BASELAYER PADDING – Nike Pro Hyperstrong baselayer with integrated lightweight, Deflex padding offering customizable flexible protection.
  • DEFLEX PADDING – Lightweight, flexible impact protection integrated into top “hit zone” areas
  • ALUMINUM D-RING BELT – Aircraft-grade aluminum D-ring belt reduces weight.

It seems the Seattle Seahawks have made the biggest splash in terms of changing their uniform designs. Here take a look..

While the design is not University of Oregon-esque, it definitely is untraditional in terms of NFL Jerseys. Nike is set to announce the full changes to all 32 NFL teams today, and The Farm Club will be keeping tabs on announcements throughout the day. Stay tuned for live coverage of the unveilings!
