    I'm not sure I can give details about when it will be released in the US, but from what I could get, you will not need to buy them from HK and the launch is planned to be soon. Not super soon, but soon.

    yeah. it will be within months. the launch will be staggered between countries. from various non-official sources i gather, the launch in HK will be in Feb/March time frame, and it will be later for the US/Canada.

    I think they wrote on their facebook page that they will launch in the US in July. If you are interested in a direct answer just post on their wall.

    Since they seem to be posting release dates on their Facebook, let me give out some info. The following quotes are all on their FB page.

    Taiwan will be Summer 2013
    United States - Summer 2013
    adidas Badminton will be available in the US - Summer 2013 - thanks - adidas Badminton
    With all this information, I think I can safely unveil the information I have since it's mostly on their page. Keep in mind that it can change.

    The launch in US is planned for March 2013 (despite the last quote saying Summer 2013). I don't know if this means sales will start in March or if products will be presented in March. They should also have a web site coming very soon. As for Canada, they said that they are still trying to figure out some stuff so they are not ready yet.

    Sorry for the messy post, took me a while to find all the info and write it here. I'll try to make it look a little better.

    Looks like the black/red is the pro bag, seems a pretty firm bag and premium quality unlike the blue/silver (different design, not just colour) one which is probably on terms with Yonex EX bags. Too bad the blue/silver is the one with a broad range of bags , rectangular one still looks pretty okay (style similar to BAG1201W, etc. well more like the EX equivalent then 9231WEX). Adidas clothbag available as well .
    Shoes looks a continuation of the original BD Feather rather than BD Feather 2 (as "feared"). Wouldn't hold my breath for the rest of the clothes or shoes though ...

    Letís take a break at this point, and I will continue to talk about what sort of stuff Adidas Badminton have planned for the future.

    Kwun,

    You mentioned about adidas' catalogue during your conversation.

    When would it be available for public ? (hopefully online)

    Many thanks for your comprehensive summary.

    just read from another overseas forum where a shop had demos available.

    The AdiPower apparently feels a LOT like the VT80.

    Each series will split into "Pro" and "Tour". No clue what that's about.

    We should ask Cheung to give Olym Sports HK a shout and get his hands on the demos

    This is the official adidas website which has a launching count down on it. But I am not sure whether are we able to actually buy their products on that time.

    There were a range. Some were head heavy Pro range, Tour were more balanced. To be honest, there were too many racquets to try out and I have a bit of golfer's elbow.

    how did you managed to get to the internal URLs?

    from what i can see and what is in the site, it looks like they are not final and maybe just for testing the online store.
