Gearing up for the 2013 NFL Pro Bowl on Sunday, Nike has just introduced the AFC and NFC uniforms for the big game. The “retro-modern” design is inspired by the Pro Bowl uniforms of the ’70s, and has been matched with modern tech in the form of the Nike Elite 51 uniform chassis for lightweight, explosive speed. By combining retro style and modern function, the Swoosh pays tribute to the history of the Pro Bowl with these red, white, and blue jerseys.
The Elite 51 uniform is designed and engineered from the inside out. Lightweight padding has been placed in the crucial “hit zones”, while Flywire has been added to reduce weight, add lockdown, and offer improved range of motion. The concept of the Elite 51 is for the baselayer, padding, pants, and jersey all function as one unit.
Keep your eyes on the field this Sunday for a better look at the uniforms.
