Yesterday in Las Vegas, Adidas and the NHL unveiled the new ADIZERO Authentic NHL jerseys.
At the forefront of innovation, design and craftsmanship, the new ADIZERO Authentic NHL jersey takes the hockey uniform system and hockey jersey silhouette to the next level by redefining fit, feel and lightweight construction.
Lighter – Featuring new cresting materials and construction technology, the ADIZERO Authentic NHL jersey delivers a new jersey that is up to 19% lighter when compared to the current NHL Jersey.
Cooler – The ADIZERO Authentic NHL jersey features adidas Clima® technology in each of the jersey fabrics to deliver breathability that maximizes air flow circulation with materials that are up to 133% more permeable than fabrics currently used.
Stronger – Constructed for durability, the fabrics are up to 27% stronger in burst testing and up to 72% tougher in abrasion testing compared to the current NHL jersey.
Rapper, singer, producer and songwriter Desiigner, comedian Russell Peters, adidas ambassadors Connor McDavid and Patrice Bergeron, as well as a number of NHL athletes nominated for awards, were on hand to celebrate the launch. The jerseys will make their on-ice debut with the 2017-18 season.
