Leading performance sunglass manufacturer Wiley X®, Inc. has added two new models to its popular Climate Control™ Series, the WX Echo™ and the WX Gravity™. These sharp-looking new shades are the first sport performance sunglasses certified to meet U.S. Military Specifications for combat protective eyewear.
These two new-for-2012 Climate Control models combine attractive, wraparound style and Rx-ready frames with Wiley X’s patented removable Facial Cavity™ Seal. This proven design eliminates peripheral light while protecting the wearer’s eyes against irritants such as wind, dust and debris that can contribute to eye injuries and Dry Eye Syndrome. As a result, the new WX Echo and WX Gravity provide sharp vision and eye comfort in the most challenging environments, whether it’s driving a boat at high speed, riding a mountain bike on a dusty trail or hitting the open highway with the top down.
The new WX Echo is available in a variety of distinctive and functional frame/lens combinations, including a Smoke Steel Blue frame with Silver Flash lenses, a Gloss Black frame with Polarized Emerald Mirror lenses, and a Gloss Black frame with Wiley X’s exclusive Light Adjusting (LA) Grey lenses that lighten and darken as the sun dictates.
The stylish new WX Gravity is offered with an eye-catching Black Crystal frame matched with Polarized Blue Mirror lenses, a Brown Crystal frame with Bronze Flash lenses and a Gloss Black frame with Light Adjusting (LA) Grey lenses. In addition, a special Wiley X Black Ops edition Gravity boasts a stealthy combination of Matte Black frame and Smoke Grey lenses.
Both the WX Echo and WX Gravity provide the highest level of protection for the wearer, a primary reason Wiley X is a leading provider of protective eyewear to U.S. armed forces around the world. Both the new WX Echo and WX Gravity have earned the stringent ANSI Z87.1-2003 High Velocity and High Mass impact safety rating for serious protection on the job and during any outdoor activity. In fact, Wiley X is the only premium performance sunwear brand whose entire line meets the ANSI safety rating. Both styles also go above and beyond to meet the military’s GL-PD 10-12 safety standards.
