Top Five Adidas Sunglasses to Wear for Cricket
As Middlesex County Cricket Club’s official sports vision opticians, Infocus is proud to stock the latest collection from one of the best sports eyewear brands in the world – Adidas.
Adidas is one of the world’s leading sports brands and constantly strives to develop new eyewear technology to boost athletes’ sporting performance. In 2008 they sent a team of vision specialists to India to join the England Lions Cricket Club on tour. Here, they carried out intensive analysis of Adidas sports sunglasses, testing the effects of different frames and lens types on eye speed, fatigue and eye protection.
Tests complete, the England Cricket team selected two frames – Adidas Adivista and T-Sight – fitted with Light Stabilising Technology (LST) lenses to help players’ eyes adapt to changing light conditions.
Here at Infocus we’re proud to stock the next generation of Adidas eyewear for cycling, trail running and cricket. Each pair comes fitted with a range of extraordinary features to boost your sporting performance on the pitch including:
- Vision Advantage™ polycarbonate lenses ensure utmost durability, clarity and protection against UV rays.
- Light Stabilising Technology (LST) is built into Adidas lenses to help fielders and batsmen cope with variable light conditions. For example, LST trail silver and LST vario lenses reduce blue and green light and emphasize the red end of the spectrum to help the cricket ball stand out against the background.
- Double-Snap Nose Bridge™ enables the wearer to adjust frames for absolute comfort and avoid pinching pressure.
- Quick-Change Lens System™ features interchangeable lenses that can be switched in and out depending on light conditions.
- FIT™ temples allow each pair to be adapted to each wearer’s unique head shape, whilst the angle of the sunglasses can be adjusted to minimise glare depending on the sun’s position.
- Prescription optical lenses can be clipped into Adidas sunglasses.
