Hi-tech new kit for Silver Ferns
Thu, 13 Sep 2012 11:11a.m.
The Silver Ferns fly out for Melbourne today and when they step out for the first leg of the Constellation Cup they’ll be looking sharp with an all new, fresh look.
Canterbury of New Zealand has signed a three year deal to provide all on-court, off-court, training and compression gear, with new technology to aid player performance and recovery.
According to New Zealand Chief Executive Raelene Castle the team loves the new look.
"The players have been utilising the gear in training and are very pleased with both its performance and style.
“They’re excited to be putting on the coveted black dress with the three-Kiwi Canterbury logo and to face the challenge on the international stage,” she said.
The new apparel has a few tricks stitched in to help the Ferns in their three test series against the Australia Diamonds, followed by the New World Quad Series with Australia, England and South Africa.
According to a release today, the new dress in particular features superior natural and man-made fibres, including Merino wool. Chamois side panels help to keep player’s hands dry and assist grip. And Canterbury’s state-of-the art compression gear aids in recovery after training and the game.
Canterbury has also introduced a collection of supporters’ apparel including polos, t-shirts, hoodies and track-pants all with distinctive Silver Ferns graphics – available from Rebel Sport, Canterbury of New Zealand stores nationwide, at the game and online.
Canterbury of New Zealand CEO, Ross Munro, is pleased to win back the Ferns and to have the Canterbury logo back on the national side.
“After an absence of seven years, we’re thrilled to be putting the iconic Kiwi brand back on the Ferns,” said Munro.
“We believe we have the design and the technology to give the team the edge when it counts,” he said.
