Nike Total 90 Ascente Seria A is the official Serie A ball for the 2009-2010 season. It was quite an interesting time when Adidas was already mastering and improving the technology of thermal bonding. At the same time, the guys from Nike persistently created seam balls and compensated for this with the peculiarity of the structure of the panels and the technological coating.
So, Nike Total 90 Ascente Seria A consists of multi-layer lightweight panels, which are fastened with strong deep seams. The outer layer of this ball has a raised texture with pits and depressions. Nike says it provides excellent grip on boots and gloves. This ball is very light. This is why you could see a lot of incredible goals in Serie A and several other Nike partner leagues that season.
In terms of design, this ball has minimal differences from the balls for La Liga and the Premier League of the 2009-2010 season. In this version, we see a bright red rounded pattern on a white background.
