New Adidas Hydrophobic Lens

Words: Marlize Odendaal

The sports eyewear specialist adidas eyewear is making blurred views a thing of the past, with its Hydrophobic™ filter technology! Set to be launched in September 2013, the innovative, hydrophobic LST™ H/H+ filters are designed to ensure optimal vision, even in rainy conditions.

The special hydrophobic coating allows for perfect unrestricted vision therefore you no longer need to worry about having your vision obscured by drops of water, streaks and dirt. Designed to improve the safety of all outdoor sports enthusiasts out in the terrain, the new hydrophobic LST™ polarised H+, LST™ blue light filter H and LST bright H filters quickly repel water drops, leaving no annoying streaks on the filters. Particles of dirt and dust are simply washed away. The LST™ filter technology harmonises rapid changes from light to shadow and increases contrasts, helping you to identify any bumps on the ground or on the cliffs, improving perception of roots and stones. The special filters have a protection level of 3 and provide 100% protection from UV and blue light rays. The Hydrophobic™ filters will feature in various models, including the evil eye half rim.
