HUNTINGTON BEACH, Calif. – Scheyden Precision Eyewear has added the C-130 model to its sunglass range.
Expanding the brand’s Fixed Gear collection, which includes the Albatross and Mustang models, the C-130 ($309-345) showcases a larger lens and titanium construction.
“Our friends and customers include scores of elite pilots, air racers and aerobatic stars that provide us constant feedback about the optical solutions they want and need inside and out of the cockpit,” says Jeff Herold, company founder and an instrument-rated private pilot. “With the C-130, we’ve added something special by marrying the world’s most exquisite materials with sleek design for superior form and function.”
The C-130 features a hand-welded titanium frame front and spring-loaded hinges for complete comfort, even when worn with a hat, headphones or headset, according to company officials.
Scheyden’s distortion-free lenses are hand-ground and polished. They feature a hydrophobic coating to repel water and perspiration, and several layers of magnesium hexafluoride to diffuse ambient light and protect pupils from harsh reflections, officials said. The lenses also include a scratch-resistant finish and optional polarization.
