Team Type 1, a pro cycling team sponsored by Nike Vision, pedaled through Colorado competing in the USA Pro Cycling Challenge early this month. With sun, mountains, and hundreds of miles between the competitors and the finish line, quality eyewear was a necessity.
Team stand-out and winner of the Pro Cycling Challenge’s Most Courageous jersey, Vladimir Efimkin, was just one of the team members counting on Nike Vision sunglasses to enhance his performance.
Nike MAX Lens Technology,which reduces glare and allows the athlete’s eyes to relax during competition, is one of many features pro cyclists rely on when traveling at speeds over 50 miles an hour. With races often extending from early morning to the late afternoon, Nike Vision’s patented nylon frame design with interchangeable lenses makes it easy for riders to swap out lenses for varying light conditions.
Frame styles such as the Impel Swift and Skylon Ace are often chosen by cyclists because of their full-coverage lenses and anti-fogging features. They deliver grip, stability, and comfort in a patented hyper-light design and are durable enough to withstand the toughest of conditions.
Team Type 1 is a world-class athletic program for athletes affected by diabetes. The program is comprised of multiple levels of professional cycling teams, but has expanded to include a triathlon team, and most recently, a running team. It is their mission that through their leadership and performance, they will instill hope and inspiration in others affected by diabetes. Nike Vision is a proud sponsor and eyewear provider to these elite athletes and also assists in the fight against diabetes.
