Today the Washington Redskins unveiled their new 2012 “anniversary” NFL Nike Elite 51 football uniform design at an event celebrating the club’s 80th anniversary at the indoor practice facility at Redskins Park. Linebackers Brian Orakpo and Ryan Kerrigan were on hand to showcase the new look unveiling the latest version of Nike's highly innovative new uniform system which once again includes a helmet finished with HGI HydroSkin® technology.
Working closely with Nike, HGI used HydroSkin® technology to bring a vintage, leather helmet look to life for the Redskins.The design of the overall Nike uniform pays tribute to 1937 QB “Slingin” Sammy Baugh, who in his first year in the league led the newly relocated Redskins to their first National Championship.
The Redskins new helmet is one part of a fully redesigned uniform developed by Nike. For additional photos of the helmet, please visit the HGI Facebook page:
The entire team at HGI is extremely excited to be working with the NFL and the Washington Redskins organization. We cannot wait to see RGIII wearing this helmet later this year!
