A trendsetter on the fairway - The new tourpro golf model from adidas eyewear

Do you want to create a sensation on the fairway? With impeccable style and all the right equipment? Sports eyewear specialist adidas eyewear can now offer you the ideal golf glasses to complete your look. The tourpro brings you perfect vision combined with a stylish appearance. Golf pro Dustin Johnson is already relying on the new model - with impressive results! It will be available in stores from September 2012.

"The equipment simply has to be right! You need to feel good when you're out on the fairway and have a high level of physical fitness to be a successful golfer", explains US professional Dustin Johnson. The 28-year old is five-time PGA Tour winner, winner of the Barclays tournament in 2011 and one of the rising stars on the professional scene. "There are a lot of things you can do to improve your physical fitness, but you can't train your eyes. You therefore need to protect them and wear high-quality golf eyewear."

Golfers often spend the whole day out on a course. Their eyes are exposed to sun and back light, wind and dirt for hours on end. The tourpro from adidas eyewear protects the eyes from external factors and is equipped with light-stabilising and contrast-enhancing LSTâ„¢ filters to support precise vision. A wide selection of filters to suit different weather conditions improves contrasts and colour perception. All filters meet the standards of optical quality class 1, provide one-hundred per cent UV protection and can be replaced quickly and easily. "The LSTâ„¢ filters from adidas eyewear help me to identify every detail on the green, from twisted sections of grass to bumps on the ground, in all weather conditions. The tourpro allows me to concentrate on the final putt without any distractions", says Johnson.

The tourpro also features an innovative, ergonomic frame and temple design, ensuring a perfect fit under any cap. The non-slip temples with three adjustment options and a soft, two-way adjustable bridge deliver maximum personalised comfort. The strong curvature of the filters together with the narrow nose section guarantee an optimal field of vision and perfect protection even during wide backswings. "And best of all", according to Johnson, "I like them and I'm happy to wear them off the green as well!"

The tourpro is available in two sizes, S and L, and in the colours shiny black grey, matt black/grey, shiny black/red, phantom/lemon, shiny white/grey and shiny brown. It is also available with polarised filters.

To compensate for poor vision, all models can be equipped with optical correction: direct glazing can be fitted using an adapter system or an optical insert can be clipped in.

Like all other models in the adidas eyewear collection, the tourpro is designed and manufactured by the respected eyewear producer Silhouette International in Austria.
