The Austrian Tyrol is both the original home of sport shooting and the birthplace of Winner shooting optics. Rainer Krischan, himself an optometrist and Walter Schmied, an optometrist and watchmaker developed and designed shooting glasses which have revolutionized the sport.
Using their experience as sport shooters and hunters they created glasses combined with practical headbands which are comfortably worn on the head.
By removing the conventional spectacle frame the sport shooter enjoys a new level of comfort and has the sensation of not wearing glasses. This is especially advantageous when wearing hearing protection. These innovative developments aid concentration and lead to more precise shooting.
Their goal: Look – aim – shoot - and win
