Admirals Unveil New Rbk EDGE Jerseys
Oct 2, 2007
All 29 American Hockey League teams will use Reebok’s new Rbk EDGE Uniform System™ beginning with the 2007-08 season. This league-wide uniform innovation was established by Reebok with the National Hockey League earlier this year with performance and safety at the forefront of the design process. After more than two years of research and testing, including integral player feedback, the Rbk EDGE Uniform System will debut this fall in only two leagues worldwide: the NHL and the AHL.
Featuring technologically advanced materials and fabrics that are more breathable and more resistant to water absorption and that offer greater range of movement, the Rbk EDGE Uniform System provides comfort and improved compatibility with equipment while helping to enhance player performance. Highlights include:
• Four lighter fabrics incorporated in the jersey, pants and socks to keep players drier while also adding increased durability to the uniform;
• The jerseys’ stretch fabric in the collar features Rbk’s innovative Playdry™ moisture management technology to maximize comfort, breathability and temperature control;
• The stretch mesh in areas including the underarms and back provides additional range of motion and increased ventilation;
• 4Way Stretch Pique features Rbk’s latest innovation, Bead Away™ water repellent technology, offering freedom of movement while retaining 76 percent less moisture than current AHL jerseys;
• X-trafil is incorporated into high-abrasion areas such as the shoulders and elbows to provide increased durability.
Fans can purchase the new jersey in person at the Admirals offices at 510 W. Kilbourn Ave, over the phone by calling (414) 227-0550, or by clicking here.
