  • New Basketball Uniforms (AWESOME)

    Oct. 11, 2010

    LAWRENCE, Kan. – Kansas women’s and men’s basketball uniforms will have a new look for the 2010-11 season, KU announced Monday.

    Designed and developed by adidas, the Revolution 30 uniforms are 30 percent lighter and dry twice as fast as previous uniforms, helping enhance player performance by keeping athletes cooler, drier and more comfortable on the court. All 30 NBA teams will wear the new uniforms beginning this season, as will select college teams whose uniforms are provided by adidas.

    KU’s Trajan font will continue to be the lettering for the women’s and men’s basketball jerseys, a look the Kansas fans have grown accustomed to since the 2007-08 season.

    Additionally, an NCAA patch will be on the uniforms, indicating they have been approved for competition.

    This ensures all uniforms used in NCAA basketball competition are in compliance with NCAA rules and provides manufacturers and the NCAA with a logo mark. For the 2010-11 season, the NCAA logo program is voluntary. Participation in the program allows the manufacturer, like adidas for Kansas, to place its logo on the game jersey, which had not been allowed by NCAA playing rules.

    The new uniforms, which are made from 60 percent recycled materials, feature adidas’ Formotion technology, which reduces seams, decreases friction between the garment and the player’s skin and optimizes the player’s natural movement through specially constructed material. adidas reduced uniform weight and increased player comfort by switching front and back numbers from heavier, dense materials to breathable mesh. The new uniform absorbs moisture in less than three seconds as a result of adidas’ CLIMACOOL fabrics, which move heat and sweat away from the body through a combination of moisture management materials, ventilation channels, and three-dimensional garments, helping the uniform dry twice as fast.

    The Revolution 30 uniform is part of an integrated and customizable uniform system that includes adidas TECHFIT padded and PowerWeb compression base layers and accessories, which help to improve endurance and protect athletes from injury while maintaining flexibility.

    adidas worked with the NBA for four years to test the uniform and ensure the highest quality, optimal performance, and athlete comfort. More than 200 NBA and NBA D-League players participated in testing by wearing new uniforms during practice and games, while researchers studied the effectiveness of the new innovations and captured player feedback. Players wore a prototype of the NBA Revolution 30 uniform during the 2009 NBA All-Star Game in Phoenix, and all players in the 2010 NBA All-Star Game in Dallas wore the final NBA Revolution 30 uniform.

                I still think they should replace their names with a Jayhawk logo.

                  Logo? Why not just put JAYHAWKS like Texas Tech?

                      If you don't like just wait till next year, they be different again. As long as we do not hire Oregon's uniform desginer, anything with KU/Jayhawks will be looking good.

                        I don't like them...the stripes down the side (the spacing) makes them look cheap. And I hate the stripes around the collar.

                          I'm not a big fan of the Trajan look. I'd rather see them go back to the old school italics look from the early 90's.

                          Other than that, they don't look half bad. Could be better, could be worse.

                            I guess what I'm saying is, as long as we win, I really don't give a damn.
