Nike Football reveals the new AS Monaco home kit with Dri-Fit technology.
The new AS Monaco home shirt updates its red and white diagonal halves with a tonal gradient print, which connects the design to the principality's motor racing heritage. (Monaco has hosted one of the world’s most-famous Formula One Grand Prix races on its tight and narrow streets since 1929.) As an ode to club pride, the modern v-neck collar has a red band on the back, and "AS Monaco" knitted on the back.
The sides of the kit feature a red stripe that runs the length of the shirt and white shorts. Expanding when the player is in motion, the stripe maximizes ventilation.
Red socks, with a darker red linear graphic on the calf, showcase the club's traditonal secondary color and accentuate speed.
The AS Monaco home kit will be available July 13 at Nike.com and official Nike and AS Monaco retailers.
Commitment to Sustainability
Nike leverages sustainable innovation for its football kits through the use of recycled polyester, delivering unrivaled performance and lower environmental impact.
The kit’s shirt and shorts are constructed with recycled polyester fabric, which is made from recycled plastic bottles melted down to produce a fine yarn.
Each kit is made using approximately 16 recycled plastic bottles. Since 2010, Nike has diverted more than three billion plastic bottles from landfills into recycled polyester, enough to cover about 5,200 football pitches.
Nike Dri-FIT Technology
Nike Dri-FIT technology draws sweat away from the body to the exterior of the shirts and shorts, where it quickly evaporates. This allows players to perform at their best by remaining cooler, drier and more comfortable.
The laser-cut ventilation holes and mesh panels in key areas of the kit are designed to improve performance by increasing air circulation and helping regulate players’ temperatures.
The shirt is crafted using mesh fabric that makes up the full front and back panels of the shirt, increasing airflow and facilitating enhanced movement.
