We’ve heard all about the uniform redesigns for the Golden State Warriors, Utah Jazz and Cleveland Cavaliers. We know about the tweaks made by the Minnesota Timberwolves, Los Angeles Clippers and Dallas Mavericks. Jerseys be changin’, you guys.
But did you know that every single team in the whole NBA will be wearing new jerseys next year? Totally true, because adidas has basically reinvented the NBA jersey without actually changing the way it looks besides tons of extra holes. Confused? Yeah, me too. But check out these sick details on the new “Revolution 30″ unis.
Designed and developed by adidas, the uniforms are 30 percent lighter and dry twice as fast as previous NBA uniforms to help enhance player performance by keeping athletes cooler, drier and more comfortable on the court. All 30 NBA teams will wear the new uniforms beginning this season.
The new uniforms, which are made from 60 percent recycled materials, feature adidas’ Formotion technology, which reduces seams, decreases friction between the garment and the player’s skin and optimizes the player’s natural movement through specially constructed material. adidas reduced uniform weight and increased player comfort by switching front and back numbers from heavier, dense materials to breathable mesh. The new uniform absorbs moisture in less than three seconds as a result of adidas CLIMACOOL fabrics, which move heat and sweat away from the body through a combination of moisture management materials, ventilation channels, and three-dimensional garments, helping the uniform dry twice as fast.
