The Kansas City Chiefs have chosen to take full innovation minus Flywire technology in the neckline in order to stay true to their design aesthetic. While the Chiefs look will stay true to years past, the TV numbers have moved from the sleeve to the shoulder – a subtle change that harkens back to years past. The new Nike Elite 51 Uniform was designed and engineered from the inside out, focusing on creating a system where the baselayer, padding, jersey and pant work in concert. A few of the new innovations include increasing sleeve articulation for better range of motion and integrating new four-way stretch fabrication to provide a streamlined shrink-wrap fit.
