RxSport : Prescription Sporting Eyewear

Prescription Sporting Eyewear
Provided by RxSport

Sports and in particular winter sports are extremely focussed on performance, and high performance at that. For those of us with sight issues, wearing glasses or contact lenses may be a necessity, but it also may be an annoyance and detraction to our performance. Fortunately there is a better solution thanks to RxSport, who are providing prescription eyewear in order to enhance sporting performance.

For skiers, goggles are one of the most essential pieces of kit available. In times past, skiers would be required to wear ski goggles over the top of their standard glasses or contact lenses; this would and could cause a whole range of issues, ultimately culminating in reduced performance. This though no longer needs to be the case thanks to prescription ski goggles from RxSport, all prescription ski goggles from RxSport come with prescription lenses and prescription inserts included in the price. With advancements in anti-fog technology and a variety of different lens tints available, prescription goggles are real performance enhancers. RxSport stock ranges from well known brands such as Adidas, Bolle and Smith, meaning that the consumer has ultimate choice in the latest range of prescription ski goggles.

Some highlights from RxSport’s range of prescription ski goggles include the Adidas ID2 Pure Prescription Goggles. The ID2 Pure goggles are the ultimate in performance, boasting the new 2-frame levelling and nano-foam technology, the goggles are designed to fit perfectly with unrivalled levels of comfort. In addition, Adidas’s ClimaCool technology will ensure that fogging, on of the biggest issues with ski goggles, is non existent. A slightly cheaper alternative to the ID2 Pure, are the Bolle Sharkfin ski goggles, despite providing great value they still retain an impressive array of features. The Sharkfins include their own anti-fog and anti-scratch technology, and are versatile enough for a large range of scenarios.

Prescription eyewear can be a key performance enhancer for sportsmen and women, especially those who partake in winter sports. RxSport provide high quality sports eyewear that can be tailored to an exact prescription, ensuring performance and functionality.

Brand Profile : Sweet Protection Helmets

Pushing the limits since childhood, the Sweet founders never accepted the second best. So, they made their own protection products.

The Sweet Story…

Stronger, lighter, better. The Sweet mantra can be traced back to a school paper from 1988, made by one of the founders and design manager, Ståle Møller. With a group of friends, Ståle had already spent two years on making the best skateboards in his hometown of Trysil. Skateboarding was prohibited in Norway until 1989 – the only country in the world where the government judged it too dangerous.

The local boys from Trysil did not care about the government. They wanted to skate. Ages before Internet and long before cell phones, this crew had more cultural input from California than Oslo.

In 1997, freestyle kayaking was taking off. As the local river was closer than the dream of pacific surf, freestyle kayaking became rapidly popular in Trysil. All of a sudden you could make surf moves in the local river! This inspired the creation of the Sweet brand. Still in design school, Ståle made a carbon fiber helmet that could be used in the freestyle kayak world championships. The kayak equipment in those days was kind of ‘soviet agricultural chic’, and Ståle’s fresh design was breathtaking. Everybody wanted it, and soon the garage production from the early Bushmade days was keeping family and neighbours awake at night again.

In 1999 a friend of Ståle’s suggested over a beer the idea of starting up a new company: Sweet North. Integrating their uncompromising demand for quality and functionality into innovative products. Growing up with action activities in mountains, rivers and ramps, they had learned how to protect themselves from the elements. Having a Sweet day, but staying safe. From the challenging environments of kayaking, they had learned to help each other out of dangerous situations. Bringing these values and insights into snowboarding and skiing made sense, right? Yes, Ståle said, but let’s drop North. Let’s just call it Sweet.

In 2003 Sweet made their first ISPO appearance and immediately won the Brand New Award for best newcomer. The years passed by, but the dream is coming true for the friends from Trysil. The inspiration from the California skateboard and surfing culture is still there, but now it is a way of life too. Cultivating childhood activities as you grow older is a privilege that the Sweet founders enjoy. Spending time on the mountains and in the waves makes both life and products better.

The range of Sweet helmets are worn by a number of ski and snowboard stars, including Norwegian snowboard legend Terje Hakonsen – look out for his signature Sweet Trooper (available late 2010). Sweet know that their team riders will never accept second best. Once again, they will be hitting first descents in AK, they will be hitting gnarly street rails and challenging lines at the Verbier Extreme. For the Sweet team riders, it’s crucial to believe in both their skills and their equipment.

New Winter season stock for snowboarding and ski helmets will be hitting down mid October, but we have a little sneak preview for you all below…

Stronger, lighter, better…
