It’s Nike’s latest breakthrough: proprietary material innovation designed to help keep athletes at their optimal temperature so that sweating, overheating or getting chilled won’t interfere with a workout.
How it works
What it looks like
When dry, the fabric appears flat and the yarns are in straight, horizontal lines. When wet, the yarns contract to allow air flow and the fabric appears crinkled and raised.
Where you’ll see it
Informed by NSRL’s thermoregulation research, AeroAdapt panels are placed in varying areas of high heat, sweat and cooling for the biggest benefits. This includes side and back panels (these act like an exhaust system because air that comes in has to have somewhere to go), the chest (a preferred area of cooling confirmed through perception testing) and more.
Nike AeroAdapt will debut in five garments within the new Nike Pro Collection from Nike Training and two Nike Football garments, expanding Nike’s adaptive product platform to apparel for the first time.
