Cincinnati has entered a new era under quarterback Joe Burrow, and that means a new look as well.
The Bengals unveiled their long-awaited uniform update on Monday, a jersey redesign they are labeling New Stripes.
While Cincinnati will retain their iconic striped helmets, the jerseys and pants have been altered for a more simple, modern appearance.
Their primary jerseys will be predominantly black with orange stripes on the shoulders. The Bengals’ away jerseys are white with black shoulder stripes, and draw inspiration from the widely popular white color rush jerseys they have worn in recent years. Cincinnati will also don orange alternates.
All three uniforms will have “Bengals” across the chest plate.
The ensemble also includes black, white and orange pants.
This is Cincinnati’s first uniform redesign in 17 years, and just the fourth major change in franchise history.
“Our fans have wanted new uniforms for many years, and today represents the start of an exciting new era in Bengals history,” Director of Strategy and Engagement Elizabeth Blackburn told Bengals.com. “Our new uniforms are bold, sleek and iconic. We designed them to be recognizable and timeless, like the Bengals helmet.”
