New Super 12 Jerseys Unveiled In London
In a launch at London's Tower Bridge yesterday, Anton Oliver, Norm Maxwell, Bryon Kelleher, Luke McAlister and Rodney So'oialo sport the latest Rebel Sport Super 12 jerseys to come from apparel sponsor adidas.
Refreshed by adidas every two years, the latest Rebel Sport Super 12 jerseys are tighter and more fitted to the body than ever before, giving players greater ability to evade tackles. A more refined neck will make it more difficult for players to be grabbed around the collar.
Adidas New Zealand Managing Director Craig Lawson said the advancements of the jersey along with its ClimaCool fabric will enhance player comfort and performance.
"Like the All Black jerseys, all Super 12 jerseys are made of adidas' ClimaCool fabric which provides moisture management and ventilation. ClimaCool provides great benefit to players in the warmer summer months between February and April, in particular for games in the hotter climes of Australia and South Africa.
"Mesh inserts in key heat zones of the body provide greater ventilation ensuring players stay cool and dry. Keeping the body temperature constant helps to reduce dehydration - which in turn means players are less likely to get tired," he said.
And for the first time ever, Rebel Sport Super 12 fans can now experience the exact same level of comfort as their favourite players with the introduction of ClimaCool technology to Replica home jerseys. The only difference between Team and Replica jerseys is that Team jerseys are tighter. All Replica home jerseys will have mesh inserts - just like the Team jerseys - meaning support from the sidelines will now be cooler than ever.
