Nike balls of the 2021 season: reviews of the best models

Today we want to bring up the topic of soccer balls again for the new season, since the collection of shells has been updated a long time ago and we think it is worth introducing you to it. In this review, we’ll showcase Nike balls for 2021, which will include both fresh models and updated ones from last year. Moreover, we will touch upon the best copies for any price tag, so that our readers have the opportunity to make a choice regarding their requests.

Nike Ordem V

This model is already the fifth generation, which is now played in the English example. This tells us about the professional level of this ball, as well as the presence of all the necessary quality certificates from FIFA.

Nike Ordem V

The main features of the ball:

  • top – synthetics made using melting technology;
  • micro-textured coating for better grip;
  • Nike Aerowtrac grooves for precision flight;
  • thermos;
  • the most accurate geometric accuracy;
  • noticeable contrast graphics.

Composition:

  • 40% artificial leather;
  • 30% polymer;
  • 20% polyester;
  • 10% cotton.

Nike Magia

Another professional model with a striking design and the best technology. The Nike RaDaR System makes the ball visually recognizable in all light and weather conditions, while a nice textured finish provides a great touch and control.

Nike Magia

Like many of Nike’s top-of-the-line balls, this new ball is made of synthetic materials by melting. The number of panels is 12. There is also Nike Aerowtrac groove technology for an accurate trajectory of the projectile’s flight. What I love about this model is the insulated six-section chamber made of carbon latex, which allows it to hold the necessary pressure for a long time and at the same time ensures a high flight speed.

Composition:

  • 40% rubber;
  • 40% synthetic leather;
    15% polyester;
  • 5% cotton.

For 2021, the second generation Nike Magia II was released, which practically does not differ from the first, except for a new color.

Nike merlin

The 2020 model has been updated in color, but remains the same in terms of characteristics. We have a separate review of this popular model, so we recommend that you familiarize yourself with it at this link.

Team FUFA Nike Magia

And this is already a novelty in 2021 with a familiar design, but with some changes against the background of the basic version, which we wrote about a little higher.

Team FUFA Nike Magia

Main characteristics:

  • 12 panels connected with a thermal seam;
  • Nike Aerowtrac grooves for precision flight;
  • Nike RaDaR design for visibility of the ball;
  • Durable, textured synthetic upper
  • latex chamber with 6 cushioning inserts.

Composition:

  • 40% rubber;
  • 40% synthetic leather;
  • 15% polyester;
  • 5% cotton.

Nike Strike Team

If we looked above the top Nike balls, now let’s go down to the simpler models. Among these, we would note the Nike Strike Team with machine seams, which should appeal to those who do not really like balls with thermal seams.

Nike Strike Team

Ball characteristics:

  • upper with 12 synthetic panels;
  • Nike Aerowtrac grooves to stabilize flight;
  • reinforced butyl chamber;
  • reduced weight – 350 grams.

Composition:

  • 60% rubber;
  • 15% polyurethane;
  • 13% polyester;
  • 12% EVA.

This is a great option for young footballers who sometimes find it important and more convenient to train with a lighter ball.

Nike Premier Team FIFA

If machine stitching does not suit you, then we suggest you evaluate this semi-professional model with FIFA certificate and hand stitching.

Main advantages:

  • upper material – TPU;
  • optimal flight due to AerowTrack grooves;
  • contrast graphics;
  • latex chamber with 6 pads.

Composition:

  • 46% rubber;
  • 29% polyester;
  • 22% polyurethane;
  • 3% cotton.

Nike Pitch Team

And this is the simplest and most affordable option in a bright design for every taste. The ball does not stand out in any way, since it is made of 12 synthetic TPU panels as standard, connected by machine stitching.

Composition:

  • 60% rubber;
  • 15% polyurethane;
  • 13% polyester;

As you can see, the range is large enough to fit your budget and playability with Nike balls. For the time being, the sports laboratory continues to maintain the general style of balls from previous seasons, which is already familiar to players and football fans. We are waiting for new models, in which, we hope, in addition to the fresh design, there will also be some technological changes.
