Since before the Vegas Golden Knights were even officially a team, one of the most talked about things was what their jersey’s would look like. With the National Hockey League switching from Reebok to Adidas, there was not only anticipation for the Golden Knights jersey, but also all of the others around the league. On Tuesday night at a private event, the NHL and Adidas threw a party to showcase the new jerseys as well as the highly anticipated reveal of the first ever Vegas Golden Knights gear.
The Golden Knights and Adidas have been teasing the jersey’s for weeks leading up to tonight and the time is finally here where fans and media alike can see what the newest NHL team will be sporting at T-Mobile Arena in the fall.
The new jersey’s are made with some incredible technology that makes them cooler, lighter and stronger. The head of Adidas Hockey, Dan Near says that the jersey’s are, “specifically created for elite performance, we’ve designed the ADIZERO Authentic NHL jerseys to deliver advanced innovation and technical design for the world’s best hockey players. We build products for the creator athlete. Our mission is to help athletes perform better and we look forward to making our on-ice debut this season with the new Lighter, Cooler, and Stronger adidas Hockey ADIZERO Authentic NHL jerseys.”
The ADIZERO technology in the new jersey’s allows for them to be over 19% lighter than the late jersey’s. Adidas signature Clima technology allows for a much cooler jersey for the players to wear. This allows for the new gear to let more air through. The new jersey’s are also 27% stronger and 72% tougher. They feature some of the newest technology that the market has to offer, which aligns perfectly with the NHL’s progressiveness. Adidas X NHL is a match made in hockey heaven.
Adidas is a brand recognized worldwide for innovation and technology investment, creating constant innovation in high performance apparel,” said NHLPA Chief of Global Business Strategies, Sandra Monteiro. “The Players are excited to partner with adidas, creating a new milestone in hockey apparel, bringing edge, innovation and premium design to the game, specifically focused on their performance.”
