Nike has redesigned their entire base layer system for all Nike Federation in preparation for the 2014 FIFA World Cup.
Next June, high temperatures and humidity will take their toll on players during their 90 minutes on the pitch. From keeping cool to a quick recovery, Nike will equip 10 of the 32 Federations next summer with the most innovative baselayer system to-date.
“The Nike Pro Hypercool 3.0 short is our lightest and most breathable base layer ever. It features a burnt-out mesh design that reduces weight by removing fabric in the key body heat zone, like the back and under the arms, as well as adding breathability. Combined with the new National Team Kits, the ov erall kit is 16% lighter than previous designs.”
The full National Team Kit features Dri-FIT technology and strategically placed laser-cut ventilation and mesh as breathability is the primary concern for brands preparing for the extreme Brazilian conditions.
