New football safety gear called the Nike Pro Combat line is the brands answer to giving today's football player lighter, stronger and more breathable base layer protection than ever before since "today's game has bigger, faster and stronger players who hit harder". This football safety gear is ergonomically designed to provide sport-specific protection to athletes without restricting their range of movement and becoming obtrusive. The new collection will include the Nike Pro Combat Deflex Short and the Nike Pro Combat Deflex Elbow Pad. Both pieces are designed to integrate seamlessly into the football uniform as a lightweight extension of the body. The Nike Pro Combat Deflex Shorts will be available to consumers for the suggested retail prices of $50 (without thigh plate) in June 2009 and $70 while the Nike Pro Combat Vis Elbow Pad will be available for a suggested retail price of $25 beginning in Fall 2009.
