Wiley X® Eyewear has expanded its popular Active Series™ of performance sunglasses with the stylish new Flare™ for 2011.

Those with a “flair” for fashion will appreciate this new model’s attractive styling. The Wiley X Flare combines a frame ideally shaped for small- to medium-sized faces with wrap-around coverage to protect eyes from the sun’s harmful rays whether enjoying the great outdoors, driving on the highway or relaxing on the beach. The new Wiley X Flare is designed to do it all, and help you look good doing it.

The Flare features a Gloss Black frame matched with Grey Lenses to give wearers an understated, no-nonsense appearance. For those looking for a flashier look with 100% polarization, the Flare is also offered in a Polarized Emerald Mirror Lens inside a Matte Black Frame. Function and style are combined in the wide temples that block glare while providing an ideal location for the company’s distinctive WX logo. Wiley X’s non-slip rubberized temple tips and nose pads ensure that the Flare stays comfortably in place, regardless of the outdoor activity and how hot the action gets.

And Wiley X knows a thing or two about action. As a leading provider of performance eyewear for several elite Special Forces units for more than 25 years, Wiley X is known for protecting people’s vision under the most challenging conditions. And this same level of protection is built into every Wiley X product. In fact, Wiley X is the only premium performance sunglass manufacturer whose entire line meets ANSI Z87.1-2003 high velocity and high mass impact and optical performance standards. This is why Wiley X is also a leading choice of industrial safety programs, top NASCAR drivers, professional tournament fishermen and other action sports athletes.

The Wiley X Flare’s nearly indestructible frames are outfitted with shatterproof Selenite™ polycarbonate lenses offering 100% protection against harmful UVA /UVB rays. These lenses not only protect the wearer’s eyes against everything Mother Nature can throw his way, they deliver sharp, crystal-clear vision and superior contrast for all activities. The Flare is also RX ready, making it ideal for people who require prescription eyewear.
