NY Giants & Dallas Cowboys don NFL Nike Elite uniforms

The NY Giants and Dallas Cowboys will take the field for the NFL season opener wearing Nike’s next-generation NFL uniforms. The NFL Nike Elite 51 Uniform is the most innovative NFL uniform to ever hit the field, delivering superior lightweight performance in a fully integrated system of dress for athletes at the highest level.

This uniquely engineered chassis and baselayer combination provides everything an athlete needs and nothing he doesn’t need. Rooted in body-led design, the uniform system is built for a body-contoured fit resulting in zero distractions in order to help amplify speed.

In addition to the new fabrication, teams chose varying levels of design changes reflecting their unique heritage. Both the Giants and the Cowboys have chosen to keep their traditional design aesthetic; however, the Giants stepped into both the new jersey and pant fabrication while the Cowboys have chosen to wear the new jersey threads and keep their former pant fabrication. They’ve also consolidated several colors of blue in the uniform to one distinct hue.

As a player, Nike’s co-founder Bill Bowerman wore the number 51, and after serving in the 10th Mountain Division in WWII he understood the importance of a uniform in battle. Lightweight mattered, as did movement and strength. As a coach, Bowerman knew that extra ounces added up and less weight meant increased mobility and speed.

What Bowerman started, Nike continues to perfect, crafting a fully integrated system of dress where the athlete’s baselayer works in concert with his entire uniform – true innovation from the inside out. Lightweight padding is integrated directly into the crucial “hit zones” in the baselayer.

New innovations include integrating Flywire technology into the neckline to reduce weight and provide lockdown fit over pads, increasing sleeve articulation for better range of motion, and integrating new four-way stretch fabrication to provide a streamlined shrink-wrap fit. A design that enables speed without compromise.

Key features include:

Lighter –The Nike jersey and pant, wet or dry are much lighter than previous versions

Flywire Technology- Eliminates layers, reduces weight, and provides lockdown fit

Zoned Mesh Ventilation – Provides cooling zones for optimal thermoregulation

Zoned Strength - High tenacity, stretch material, for light weight lockdown strength

Cut For Mobility – Four-way stretch, hydrophobic materials enable range of motion wet or dry

Stretch Twill Numbers – Four-way stretch even on numbering system

Customizable Baselayer Padding – Nike Pro Combat Hyperstrong baselayer with integrated lightweight, Deflex padding offering customizable flexible protection

Deflex Padding - Lightweight, flexible impact protection integrated into top “hit zone” areas
