Primitive RBK Edge uniform designs...

RBK initially designed the uniforms for the 1975 crap cult movie smash "Rollerball" as rollerballin' thespians wanted a performance enhancing fabric while throwing their elbows during filmaking. Said James Caan of the jerseys, "The material is lighter and it doesn’t absorb water like the other jerseys we were going to use, so you don’t feel like you have 10 pounds on your back by the end of shooting for the day. You feel faster.”

Take a look at the genesis of cutting edge fabric technology...A double super secret peak at the RBK drawing board.



And now the finished product in action. Check out that form fitting goodness:
