With March Madness growing ever closer, Nike has just released preview images of their Hyper Elite Platinum NCAA Uniforms. Designed at the intersection of sustainability and performance, the specially designed short and jersey combination will be worn by nine of the nation’s top college basketball teams in select games during the 2012 season. Programs participating include Duke, North Carolina, UConn (men and women), Florida, Syracuse, Arizona, Kentucky and Baylor (women’s). Nike created the uniforms specifically for superior performance and lower environmental impact. The fabric of the Nike Hyper Elite Platinum shorts are made from 100% recycled polyester while the jersey fabric is made from at least 96% recycled polyester. Both short and jersey are tailored for the optimal efficiency of movement and are five percent lighter than the previous Nike Hyper Elite uniform. Featuring laser-cut bonded logos, a sharp platinum design as well as prominent accent colors, the Nike Hyper Elite Platinum uniforms are sure to shine on the court.
