Partnership Recognizes Revo’s Popularity with Ski Professionals and Cutting Edge Photochromic Lens Technology That Handles Light Conditions on the Slope
Revo, the global leader in high-quality performance sunglasses, announces today they have been named Official Sunglass Sponsor for the upcoming 2021-22 season of World Pro Ski Tour (WPST) of professional ski races. Revo goggles have been a longtime favorite of skiers and other winter sports enthusiasts for their precision engineering, comfort, and contemporary styling.
“As an avid skier who grew up watching the World Pro Ski Tour, partnering with such a cool and prestigious event is really fun for me personally,” said Revo CEO, Cliff Robinson. “To be able to help sponsor the WPST brings it all full circle. It’s a dream come true.”
The WPST is viewed in more than 100 million homes and can be seen in primetime on CBS Sports Network, live on Flolive.tv and via the award-winning docuseries, Life In Between Gates. The tour will open the 2021-22 season in December featuring top skiers racing side-by-side in a single elimination bracket format at top ski areas around the United States.
Revo is a clear fit as an eyewear partner for the World Pro Ski Tour,” says Jon Franklin, CEO of the WPST. “They are involved in the DNA of ski racing, from historic partnerships with Olympic medalists and Pro Tour athletes Phil and Steve Mahre to their current involvement with Bode Miller, the most decorated skier in American history.”
Regular tour participants include two-time Olympic gold medalist, Ted Ligety, World Championships silver medalist, Phil Brown and two-time WPST Overall Champion, Rob Cone. Expected on the women’s side are U.S. Ski Team alumni and 2-time Olympians Laurenne Ross and Alice McKennis Duran and Canadian Olympic slalom skier, Anna Goodman.
The full tour schedule – including the 2022 World Pro Ski Tour World Championships from Taos, New Mexico – will be announced soon.
