Arkansas University launches Razorback football uniforms

The University of Arkansas unveiled its new football uniforms for the 2012-2013 season, featuring Nike Pro Combat System of Dress technology combined with unique design inspiration harkening back to the Razorbacks’ rich tradition and history.

The fully integrated uniform system incorporates the latest in performance innovation and design while paying tribute to the school’s mascot and identity. The team took a clean modern approach, keeping a cardinal uniform as well as a white version but will introduce a fierce new anthracite color as their alternate.

"We want to be sure our student-athletes are competing in the latest uniform technology,” said Jeff Long, Athletic Director, University of Arkansas.

“In addition, the cardinal and white is our staple, the basic look that we’ll never go away from, but we are excited to introduce other options for our fan base.  It’s a cutting-edge look with respect to a tradition that is uniquely Arkansas."

The Razorback’s new uniform delivers superior lightweight performance as well as optimal protection and tells a story through the new design. Nike worked closely with the university to bring elements of the schools rich Razorback heritage into a distinguished, clean and modern uniform design by emphasizing the strong iconic hog features.

The shoulders are accented with jagged metallic razorback lines, which reflect the hairline along the hog’s back, thus creating a wider look across the pads. The “RAZORBACK” slogan has been placed on the front of the home jersey, which also features new number fonts and logo typeface, while “ARKANSAS” is shown on the away and alternate versions.

Additionally the numbers, as well as the helmets, feature an aggressive faded finish. The “RING THE BELL” rally cry is also stitched into the inside neckline as a reminder to the athletes.

In addition to the new design, this integrated uniform system provides enhanced durability and innovation from the inside out.  Additional padding without the bulk offers optimal low-profile impact protection specifically throughout the crucial “hit zone” around the hip area.

The uniform system design also emphasizes improved thermoregulation, including the Nike Pro Combat base layer, which is constructed with fabric selected for its ability to help keep the body cool and wick away sweat – making the uniform, and player, lighter and dryer. The jerseys are made of four-way stretch nylon that sheds moisture. Flywire technology in the collar eliminates two layers of fabric for improved breathability, providing a more stable anchor to keep the jersey in place.

NIKE, Inc., based near Beaverton, Oregon, is the world’s leading designer, marketer and distributor of authentic athletic footwear, apparel, equipment and accessories for a wide variety of sports and fitness activities.
