When USA Basketball and other elite teams square off this summer, they'll be wearing the Nike Hyperelite uniform, the game’s lightest, most advanced uniform. Engineered from the inside out, everything from the Nike Pro Combat base layer to the Hyperelite game shorts and shirt has been designed for the best athletes and teams in the world.
It starts with Nike Aerographics, a super-light fabric that helps make this our lightest national team uniform ever. It also acts as a passive cooling solution, allowing for greater design and graphic flexibility. Laser-cut perforations increase ventilation and Dri-FIT fabric helps wick sweat away so every player is equipped to stay cool, dry, comfortable, and move better.
On the road to glory, no detail can be overlooked. Every stitch of the bonded back seam is precise; every detail of the platinum design is perfectly crafted. The uniform is not only engineered for lightweight performance, it’s made with 98% recycled polyester from an average of 22 recycled drinks bottles. For the best in the world, the uniforms match the mission.
