The Reds have unveiled a new jersey for the 2016 season, which pays homage to Queensland’s proud 133-year history, while also incorporating kit partner BLK’s state-of-the-art technology and cutting-edge design.
The new jersey has been designed and produced using BLK’s exclusive Exotek fabric throughout the main body.
Exotek was created exclusively by BLK to enhance athlete performance, while maximising player comfort and manoeuvrability. Exotek is the strongest, lightest and most breathable and soft-to-touch fabric ever used by BLK with its four-way stretch properties setting it apart as a market leader.
Each Queensland Reds Jersey has been individually embroidered with the traditional Queensland ‘Q’, the Reds insignia and the BLK logo positioned across the chest, while they also feature the introduction of BLK’s full Silicon Gel grip through the Sponsor logo, to assist with ball carrying and grip.
The player’s jerseys have been specifically cut and tailored to meet the requirements and shape of each individual athlete’s body.
In a shift away from the full red jersey of previous years, the 2016 Queensland Reds home jersey introduces a bold graduating lineal design element, which runs vertically down the centre front of the jersey.
In addition to the home jersey, the Reds retail range also includes a navy away jersey and black warm up jersey, featuring a bold Reds logo.
