via Press Release
With the NCAA tipping off conference tournaments this week, adidas today unveiled the new, ultra-lightweight adiZero uniform for Baylor University, the University of Cincinnati and the University of Louisville. The uniforms are on average 28 percent lighter than the schools' previous uniforms, keeping players lighter and faster on the court for the most important games of the year.
Expanding on the adidas Revolution 30 uniform technology currently being used in the NBA, the adiZero uniforms feature ClimaCool zones, which move sweat and heat away from the body to keep the jersey from weight increase during heavy sweating. Unlined shorts shed weight from the uniform to provide a more comfortable, closer fit with compression base layers, while four-way stretch material works with the body's natural movement to enhance mobility during quick lateral movements and sprints.
Amplified school colors used on the uniforms were created exclusively for this year's NCAA tournament runs and to pay homage to the high intensity of March Madness. Limited edition camouflage prints are inspired by on-court teamwork.
The adizero uniform will debut on-court with Cincinnati and Louisville during the Big EAST Tournament March 6-10 at Madison Square Garden and with Baylor University during the Big 12 Conference Tournament March 5-10 in Kansas City, Missouri. All three teams will continue to wear the uniforms for the NCAA Tournament beginning March 13.
