Movistar Team featuring the new adidas Zonyk Pro

 

adidas Sport eyewear has today unveiled the latest model of its Performance sport collection – the zonyk pro – designed to provide athletes with equipment that meets their demands – to achieve the very best.

In order to create the most advanced and functional eyewear possible, the zonyk pro has been specially developed in close cooperation with and for athletes. The zonyk pro has been engineered and designed to amplify performance – as well as appearance – and takes full advantage of the adidas Sport eyewear lens range. Wearers are given the choice of polarized, mirror, LST™ and Vario options to ensure that perfect vision can be achieved whatever the weather or lighting conditions.

The zonyk pro Movistar version (AD02 6057 pictured) with brand new combined Vario mirror filters hit the start line at the 2016 edition of the Tour de France.

Movistar Team have had a fantastic season, winning the ‘Team of the Tour De France’ award, with two individual riders in the top six.

At La Vuelta, they have shown a supreme performance so far, with Nairo Quintana leading. The Colombian wears the leader’s jersey in Vuelta a España for the second time in his career after a fantastic La Camperona climb, putting half a minute on Contador, Froome and Alejandro Valverde, who remains 2nd overall.

As a team, Movistar are leading in all classifications in the Vuelta, with Quintana first in the GC, KOM and Combination rankings; Valverde in green as Points leader; and the Blues on top of the Team prize.

New test needed to assess the quality and safety of sunglasses

Revision of standards is needed to test sunglasses quality and establish safe limits for the lenses’ UV filters, according to research published in the open access journal Biomedical Engineering OnLine.

Sunglasses and UV protection

Exposure to the sun may deteriorate your sunglasses over time and the lenses may become lighter and so alter the category under which they are classified. It may also diminish the impact resistance of lenses (how ‘shatterproof’ the lens is). Current national and regional standards require that sunglasses provide levels of UV protection linked to the luminous transmittance, which decides the category of the lenses.

Lenses should provide adequate UV filters, because insufficient protection could lead to pathological modifications to the cornea and to the internal structure of the eye. This could cause edema (swelling of the eye which can distort vision), pterygium (growth of pink, fleshy tissue on the white of the eye that can interfere with vision), cataract (clouding of the lens of the eye) and retina damage.
