Nike just gave us a first glance of the official team uniforms that the Baltimore Ravens and San Francisco 49ers will be wearing in this year’s SuperBowl XLVII. These uniforms may look very similar to the ones we’ve seen all season but Nike released a statement to fill us in on the sweet technology used to allow these players to reach their highest performance level possible.
‘Both team uniforms feature full Nike Elite 51 innovation including Flywire technology in the neckline to reduce weight and provide a lockdown fit over the pads. These revolutionary uniforms are engineered and purposefully constructed with every element built for speed. From head-to-toe and inside-out, the uniform components are constructed to work in concert with each other – from the jersey, pant, baselayer and padding all the way down to the the sock and cleat. Additional innovation includes increased sleeve articulation for better range of motion as well as four-way stretch fabrication to provide a streamlined shrink-wrap fit.
The full, integrated uniform system also features strategically placed seams, pads and cooling zones that help minimize distraction and optimize protective coverage. Padding without the bulk offers optimal low-profile impact protection, specifically throughout the crucial “hit zone” between the knees and shoulders.’ (NikeInc.com)
