Eintracht Frankfurt propels its proud heritage into the future with its 2015-16 away kit.
Complementing the new Eintracht Frankfurt home kit, the traditional all-white away kit is designed to reflect the club’s nickname, Die Adler (The Eagles) and — for first time in club history — render the Eintracht Frankfurt crest in black and white. The regal aesthetic takes inspiration from the club’s eagle mascot, a symbol at the heart of the club crest and on the banners fans display at the Commerzbank-Arena.
As on the club's 2015-16 home kit, the Eintracht Frankfurt away shirt features the club’s initials, SGE, on the back of the neck.
Proud symbols of the club, the new kits are also progressive. They offer the latest in Nike performance innovation, fabric technology, moisture management and environmental sustainability.
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 to the players’ bodies and helping regulate their temperatures.
The jersey is crafted using a lightweight solid fabric on the sleeves and front combined with a full mesh back panel to increase airflow and facilitate enhanced movement.
Nike places sustainable innovation at the heart of its kits through the use of recycled polyester, delivering unrivalled performance and lower environmental impact.
Each piece of the kit – the shirt, shorts and socks – is constructed with recycled polyester, which is made from recycled plastic bottles that are melted down to produce fine yarn used to create the fabric. Each kit is made using an average of 18 recycled plastic bottles. Since 2010, Nike has diverted more than 2 billion plastic bottles from landfills into recycled polyester – enough to cover about 3,500 football pitches.
By using recycled polyester, Nike is also reducing the energy consumed in the manufacturing process by up to 30 percent compared to virgin polyester. For more information, visit nikebetterworld.com.
