adidas eyewear updates colour scheme of Movistar Team's official glasses

The Movistar Team riders are unveiling this week their new evil eye halfrim pro glasses from adidas eyewear.The official model worn by the team led by Alejandro Valverde and Nairo Quintana now features the brandnew white print blue colour scheme.

adidas eyewear, official partner of the squad since 2012, is replacing their previous design, yet still keeping the team's identifiable colours, using white to give the riders a fresher look.


The evil eye halfrim pro glasses from adidas eyewear have become an essential help for the Movistar Team riders and one of the most appreciated by cycling fans, thanks to their technical specifications, their multiple settings and the high quality of their lenses. Besides, adidas eyewear is now offering a new hydrophobic treatment on their lenses, which provides the rider with better vision on any situation and improved protection against dust and water. Dirt particles are picked up by this specific treatment, leaving the surface clean and dry.

"Feedback from professional athletes like the Movistar Team riders is crucial for us to constantly improve our eyewear," explains David Wiesenhofer, Global Sports Marketing Manager from adidas eyewear. "Like the team, we are striving to be ahead of our competition - and support the vision of the world’s best athletes who we are very proud to be partners of."
