NIKE T90 TRACER FOOTBALL

To accompany their Elite Series football boots Nike have launched this stunning new ball!

Dubbed the T90 Tracer, this ball is the most advanced that Nike have ever produced, allowing strikes to travel further, faster than it’s predecessor the T90 Ascente.

Keeping with the overall theme of the Elite Series, Nike are most proud of the added visibility elements of the ball.

It will only be produced with high-visibility neon trim – which, according to Nike‘s Labs, makes the ball easier to track during it’s flight – hence the name ‘Tracer‘ – geddit?

Other features include the micro-textured casing on the ball. This equalises airflow all around the ball when it’s in flight and improves control when it’s on the ground.

Nike also say that the panels have been precision engineered to distribute pressure across the entire ball. This means that the energy transferred into the ball when kicked is sent across the whole ball, rather than being consigned to one or two panels, which would give the ball an uneven flight.

Sources say that the T90 Tracer will become the official match ball for all Nike Sponsored leagues, meaning fans of the English Premier League, Serie A and La Liga will soon see some incarnation of the Tracer (presumably not in black!)

We like the new T90 Tracer, the overall design hasn’t changed too much from the current Premier League Ball – the T90 Ascente – however, the graphic has been toned down to be a little more modern and a little less sci-fi-RoboCop.

The football itself isn’t the only thing that’s Elite – the ball will run you £84.99 if you were to buy it right now, ensuring that it’s priced for the Elite too.

  • That’s right Nike, keep milking those fat spoiled 12 year old kids that think they will be better if they buy all your overpriced crap. Don’t get me wrong, I like the vapors but this is just ridiculous.

  • The visibility gimmick is even more stupid this time. Seriously if you can’t see the damn ball because it’s not of a certain color just stop playing football.

  • If you don’t know where the ball is and if you don’t now where your fricken teammates feet are then maybe Nike should come out with some Elite Series Glasses. Unbelievable.

  • A black match ball? What are they thinking about? Balls must be very easy to see and a black ball, even with bright orange and silver highlights can not be a match ball…..

  • The sad thing is, this visibility gimmick must really be catching on if nike is using it for everything. I liked the yellow-purple high vis ball just because it was nice to play with under floodlights, but this is ridiculous.

  • No one is going to buy this ball at ÂŁ80 are they? Everyone needs to stop meddling with their balls as we discussed on here before! No doubt a white version of this will be the Premier League ball for next year…

  • Its obvious that nike is just trying to compensate for their lack of success in the world cup kits. If their kits arent gonna get the any income they i know, lets over price the one thing we do succeed with and make up for it then. Honestly nike, if you want to open up to a “world” market, then you have to realize that the world does not have 250 pounds to drop on a pair of boots that “are 5% lighter” and will play for you without you having to do anything. Tsk tsk nike, enough with the gimmicks and focus on the feedback you get from places like FB to findn out what people really want and think about these products. Nike is reeeeeeally gonna have to stop and rethink their products and their market.

  • Guys i got a bit of a problem on my mecurial talaria iv. the sole is coming away from the two end.
    how should i fix this? super glue?

  • @ Enzo
    Dont try doing it yourself, if you want a good job done send them to a shoe cobbler, they can usually fix it up real good. If the cant (they should) you should use a ticker and pastier super glue.

  • Nice looking ball. Looks very grippy, if the last two t90 balls are anything to go by it should be a good ball. Also I have noticed t90 balls are very round.
    Kids will just get the $20 strike ball and anyone who doesn’t want to pay full price can get the $80 catylyst
