Marchon Releases Nike Vision Golf X2 and Golf X2 Pro

Marchon has added the Golf X2 and Golf X2 Pro to its Nike Vision performance line. Designed for golfers and utilizing real-time insight gained from the brand’s roster, the Nike Golf X2 and Golf X2 Pro were conceived with one goal in mind: to help athletes reach the top of their game. The Golf X2 features a slimmer temple design and top bar to fit easily and comfortably under a hat. The style also includes silicone adjustable temples and a ventilated silicone nose bridge for custom fit, added grip and stability. While similar in design, the Golf X2 Pro features a different lens cut that allows the lens to sit above the cheek, making it ideal for wearers with higher cheek bones. Both the Golf X2 and X2 Pro feature a matte finish on the frames, designed to eliminate reflective glare that can cause visual interference; while certain color ways of both come equipped with Nike MAX Golf Tint that enhances critical details of the fairway and green. www.marchon.com
