TECHNOLOGY:

  • Nike Flywire reinforces the neck area while providing a closer fit to prevent slipping. The aesthetic also provides a nod to the traditional lace neck design.
  • Reduced seaming eliminates weight and creates a more traditional blocked look.
  • Recycled polyester embraces sustainable innovation without compromising performance.  Each jersey is made from about seventeen plastic bottles and the socks use approximately five plastic bottles.
  • Lightweight premium letters and numbers shave off unnecessary weight.
  • Zoned ventilation and articulated sleeves for ventilation and maximum range of motion.
  • Stretch open hole mesh under arm for added ventilation.
