Wiley XWiley X®, Inc. has added the WX Tobi to its growing Active Series sunglass family, providing active sports and outdoor enthusiasts with a great new eyewear option. This new addition to Wiley X's 2014 line-up proves that it’s possible to be lightweight and stylish, while still delivering the heavy-duty vision protection associated with the Wiley X brand.

The WX Tobi features a stylish, yet rugged rimless design for the ultimate in lightweight wearing comfort. The frame features a soft, rubberized nosepad and temple gloves, for added comfort and non-slip performance during even the most strenuous outdoor activities. This performance, combined with the WX Tobi's unique sense of style, make this pair of shades great for any activity or occasion - from driving down the highway with the top down to playing beach volleyball to kicking back with friends on a summer afternoon.

This new Active Series model comes in two eye-catching versions Model #ACTOB02 combines a Brown Crystal frame with Bronze lenses, while Model #ACTOB04 pairs a Gloss Black frame with Polarized Silver Flash lenses.  With their glare-cutting 8-layer polarization and Smoke Grey tint, these lenses are perfect for use on the water, while driving, or in any bright, highly reflective environment. 

Protection has always been the name of the game with Wiley X, and the new WX Tobi is no exception.  Of course, Wiley X's shatterproof lenses block 100% of harmful UV rays.  But that is only part of the story.  The new WX Tobi meets stringent ANSI Z87.1 High Velocity and High Mass Impact Safety standards, providing occupational grade protection at work or play.  Wiley X is the only premium sunglass brand with this level of vision protection in every pair of glasses it makes.
