PEMBROKE PARK, Fla.– As captain of the International Team at the 2011 Presidents Cup golf tournament in Melbourne, Australia, Greg Norman used the latest innovation in performance eyewear to stay focused and lead his International team.
Greg has been wearing a shark-inspired frame design featuring EXtreme Polarized lenses (EXP) powered by NXTÒ lens technology, made exclusively for Greg Norman. NXTÒ lenses are built on TrivexÒ material, which is 10 times stronger and 10% lighter than polycarbonate lenses. By casting the lens, aberrations are eliminated, resulting in a higher abbe value for increased clarity. NXTÒ lenses process color and contrast faster, helping you make quicker decisions required by golf and other outdoor sports. All styles in the Performance Collection include:
· Optical quality Grilamid memory polymer frame material that retains its shape and has unsurpassed fit and comfort.
· High-contrast and high-color definition lenses, including advanced Polarization processes.
· Oleophobic and Hydrophobic lens coatings that resist water, moisture and oils for increased clarity.
“After extensive research, the Aspex design team has come up with the perfect balance of lifestyle and sport frames that will help you achieve your best while enjoying an active lifestyle,” said Greg Norman. “The combination of the Greg Norman brand, Aspex Eyewear and NXT lens technology has resulted in an exciting and fresh collection that performs exceptionally well for all your active sports and leisure activities.”
“This highly-anticipated collection can be viewed now at gregnormaneyewear.com/performance and will be available for preorder sales soon at shark.com. The collection will make its international debut at the 2012 PGA Show in Orlando in January at the Greg Norman Collection booth,” said Dan Pady, Brand Manager for the Greg Norman Performance Sunwear Collection.
