Olympic uniforms have forever been changed. Select Olympic hockey players will get the chance to wear state-of-the-art 3D-scanned Olympic uniforms. It will be custom fitted to their bodies, just like superhero suits.
Bauer officially revealed the high-tech hockey equipment called ‘OD1N’ in December. CEO Kevin Davis has commented on the gear saying that it is the “concept car” of hockey equipment. Bauer used a tech-friendly combination of composite materials, compression-molded foam and 3D optical scanning to make each outfit fit the person wearing it. The skates, protective gear and goalie pads have all been lightened in weight by one-third.
The six lucky players that will get to wear the Olympic uniforms include NHL’s Jonathan Toews (Team Canada), Patrick Kane (Team USA), Alex Ovechkin (Team Russia) and goaltender Henrik Lundqvist (Team Sweden). Claude Giroux (Team Canada) and Nicklas Backstrom (Team Sweden) will also sport the high tech uniforms.
