LYON, FRANCE 14th January 2022 – The New Year is here and with it comes the opening tennis grand slam of 2022 – the Australian Open, where all eyes will be on the world’s best tennis players.
Ballkids play an essential part of the game and as with tennis players, having superior visual skills can give them a real advantage during play. To take their vision to a higher level and to protect their eyes from long hours in the sun, the ballkids, totalling almost 400, will wear Bollé performance sunglasses Bolt and its smaller sister model Bolt S, with tennis dedicated lenses.
PHANTOM COURT – BOLLE’S DEDICATED TENNIS LENS
Bollé has a long history in tennis and talented tennis players such as Martina Hingis trusted Bollé in the past to protect their eyes and boost their performance during the game.
With its industry leading expertise Bollé used its most advanced photochromic lens technology, Phantom, to created Phantom Court, a dedicated tennis lens, that is specifically engineered to highlight the ball and also the tennis court lines
The impressive performance of this unique NXT® lens offers not only phenomenal optical clarity but also impact resistance and glare reducing polarization whilst automatically adapting to light conditions.
One of the favourite Bollé models on the tennis circuit is the Bolt 2.0 with Phantom Court lenses and along with its smaller sister model, Bolt 2.0 S, the sunglasses offer exceptional fit and comfort.
Using state of the art materials, the frame combines lightness, flexibility and durability.
The Thermogrip® rubber inserts on the temples and the nose pad ensure the sunglasses stay in place even during intense action while the adjustable multi-position nose pad plays its part in the stability and in addition provides a customizable fit for an optimal comfort. The lens also features a hydrophobic treatment (so that water droplets roll off) and an oleophobic treatment (to repel dirt), keeping vision clear.
Bolt 2.0 and Bolt 2.0 S are extremely versatile models and lenses suitable for other sports, including running, are available. Lenses include the revolutionary VOLT+ for phenomenal high contrast and enhanced colour.
BOLT and BOLT S are available from www.bolle.ro and are available in prescription.
