With post season actions looming on the horizon, Nike Basketball is preparing its athletes with the new Elite Collection. Think of it as the turbocharged version of what is on the court now, the collection comprised of Nike Kobe VII, Nike Zoom Hyperdunk and Nike LeBron 9, each re-designed for the maximum performance advantage. For the Nike Zoom Hyperdunk, designer Leo Chang and members of the Nike Basketball Footwear Design Team, went on to incorporate high-tech elements not available before. Like the Kobe VII and LeBron 9, the Zoom Hyperdunk features a mid-foot shank and heel counters, both made of carbon fiber. A new Flywire support system with Kevlar aramid produces a high tensile exoskeleton, stronger now than previous Flywire system. Finally, with lessons learned from its Pro Combat system, a new collar with strategically placed paddings protect the player from sudden change in direction and motion.
The Nike Zoom Hyperdunk, along with the rest of Nike Basketball Elite Collection, will be available at select retail outlets starting on April 28th, 2012
