Wilson Sporting Goods Co. announced the launch of the new Wilson Forte FYbrid II, the Official Match Ball of the 2015 NCAA Soccer Championships. This revolutionary ball combines innovative technologies, design, construction, engineering and materials for superior aerodynamic stability and control, providing optimal performance. This latest soccer ball line from Wilson includes an unparalleled 20-panel ball design with optimized geometric contact zones for more controlled, precise strikes with predictable ball flight. FYbrid Fused Technology offers minimized moisture absorption for extended durability, while its elastomeric-carbon (HPE) bladder ensures a balanced, round shape with explosive rebound acceleration. The Wilson Advisory Staff, compiled of top-tier coaches from across the country, also conducted thorough field-testing of the Forte FYbrid line to ensure the ball not only met the requirements of the NCAA, but also received a stamp of approval from collegiate players. The ball has been approved by NCAA, FIFA and NFHS. The Forte FYbrid is currently adopted by 24 NCAA and 23 high school conferences throughout the country. The Wilson Forte FYbrid II will be offered in two colors, white and neon orange – both approved for NCAA play. It will be available for purchase this spring at major sporting goods retailers, soccer specialty accounts.

Featuring new construction and the company's patented Pro Torque Chassis arch technology, the new Rush Pro 2.0 is a shoe made for performance tennis players with a range of playing styles. The shoe debuts the company's Pro Torque Chassis, a patented arch technology engineered to provide torsion control and stability for maximum acceleration, so players can keep up with the speed of today's game. And the shoe's enhanced forefoot support provides for explosive starts and optimum stability in every direction on the court. Further, new outsole construction with zonal tread engineering makes the Rush Pro 2.0 lighter with better grip for improved traction consistency, increasing stability and control. The Rush Pro 2.0 also employs enhancements to technologies that are staples of the Rush Pro line, including Endofit technology on the interior for enhanced comfort, stability and an overall natural-fit experience. The shoe also contains Perfect Fit technology, offering players a shoe that fits uniquely to each foot. The Rush Pro 2.0 Women's shoe features the Company's Women's Specific Support (WSS), reflecting the biomechanical difference in women's feet compared to men's. Designed for the competitive player, Wilson Labs engineered the WSS construction to deliver enhanced support and stability. Using an asymmetrical and elongated medial side, WSS construction features a TPU heel counter and a dual density molded sock liner. The inner structure of the shoe for women helps hold the heel in position, while providing added support through the mid-foot area.
