Wiley X® Eyewear has developed a solid reputation for providing battlefield proven eye protection with superior vision for a wide range of outdoor sports enthusiasts and fashion wearers. For 2010, the company’s reputation — as well as its product line — will be expanding significantly.
This leading innovator of performance protective eyewear will be introducing 10 new styles for active men and women, each designed with the same impact-resistant lenses and shatterproof frames that have made Wiley X a leading choice of U.S. Army Rangers, Navy SEALs and other elite Special Forces Units in action around the world. Wiley X’s High Velocity Protection (HVP™) Selenite™ lenses exceed stringent ANSI Z87.1 safety and ANSI Z80.3 optical standards for superior impact resistance and distortion free vision. And with 10 distinctive new styles and a variety of available frame/lens color choices, Wiley X has a new pair to match any outdoor activity, from rock climbing to fishing, mountain biking to motorcycle riding. “From the urban jungle to America’s backwoods, on the high seas or the open road, our sunglasses have been growing in popularity among those who demand the highest level of fashion and protection,” said Wiley X Eyewear President of Sales Myles Freeman, Jr. “This has helped fuel the introduction of specialized new models to better meet the needs of our diverse customers,” he added.
Among Wiley X’s new styles are two additions to the popular Active Series, the Lantern and the Slay, ideal for the active enthusiast who likes to do it all. Four new models join the popular Street Series — the Hydro, Scissor, Xcess and Quake. Wiley X Street Series sunglasses are specially designed to deliver both serious protection with street-smart good looks for work, play or hitting the highway.
Wiley X’s Climate Control™ Series — which features a patented removable Facial Cavity™ Seal — is designed to seal out wind, dust, debris, and peripheral light when riding, boating and fishing. This unique feature keeps eyes comfortable by eliminating reflected glare and preventing dry-eye — even when the action gets fast and furious. The new Curve and Rout join this series, and are sure to prove popular with demanding outdoor enthusiasts. The addition of the new Curve will be especially welcomed by women, youth and others with narrow facial structures. This model’s unique design brings the comfortable fit and benefits of Wiley X’s Facial Cavity Seal technology to a whole new group of action sports enthusiasts.
Wiley X has also added two new styles to its versatile Changeable Series. The new-for-2010 Guard and Saber Advanced models are designed for easy switching of premium quality lenses for a wide range of tactical and shooting sports applications, and optimum visual acuity under all light conditions.
