Unique sunglasses for two outstanding champions
For the opening of the Biathlon World Cup on 28 November 2012 in
Two outstanding champions: yellow Martin & red Simon
Brothers and athletes in the Julbo Family, Martin and Simon Fourcade enjoyed an exceptional 2011/12 season: quadruple World Champion and Winner of the Overall Standings in the 2011/2012 Biathlon World Cup for Martin, and Winner of the Final Standing and silver medallist in the Individual discipline of the World Cup for Simon. With the yellow bib for Overall Standings Leader and red for Specialism Leader, Martin and Simon Fourcade each have their own and each a bit of the other's. So when the idea came to find a way of celebrating their magnificent past season while wishing them the best for the coming one: "Everyone was immediately taken with the idea of personalizing our favourite sunglasses. We left the rest of the project and its design in the capable hands of the company's designers and specialists" explains Simon. "We were closely involved in the project right from the stage of choosing the design, so we couldn't wait to see the result!" adds Martin.
Unique sunglasses: a fully personalized Dust model
A few days later, the Julbo Design team received the bibs from the IBU so that they could add the exact colors to their favourite Dust model with its Zebra photochromic lenses: "First of all, it's a high-quality product with the technical features we wanted so we were already using it last season and were really happy with it. And I must admit there's a certain pride in being able to wear this model specially dedicated to us. Our respective signatures and wins inscribed on the inside of the temple make this model unique and exclusive," says Simon. And Martin isn't about to contradict him: "They're fantastic, especially with the marking on the inside of the temples and the reminder of our colors on the models".
We are offering a few lucky snow fans the chance to win a pair of fully personalized sunglasses dedicated to Martin and Simon Fourcade. Only ten copies of each have been produced. Go to our Facebook page from Wednesday 21 November to encourage Martin, support Simon and try to win this unique pair of sunglasses made for two outstanding champions.
