The soccer ball: enhanced. Nike’s material innovations have shaped the new Flight Matchball for more precise flight and a design that’s futuristic, sleek and includes less paneling than ever before. Constructed to look like one, smooth panel, the ball is anything but smooth, with deep grooves known as Nike Aerowsculpt technology defining arrow-like patterns around the ball into pseudo-panels. They enhance grip and touch, but ultimately, they direct your strikes for 30% truer flight. Geared for takeoff.
