Scheyden Precision Eyewear has unveiled its Revelry frame, a new style in the company’s Composite Hybrid collection.
Designed as a smaller version of the Revelstoke model, the Revelry Composite Hybrid, which sells for $259 to $309, fuses a cedar rolled composite frame with flexible, hypoallergenic NiAg temples and cloisonné tips for comfort, even when wearing a hat, headphones or a headset, company officials said. Featuring a full-coverage wrap design, the unisex collection is available in either gloss black or Havana tortoise-shell and includes two additional styles — Jet-A and Panorama.The full-coverage frames can be fitted with either glass or CR-39 lenses, which are created using Scheyden’s multi-layer process. 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. The distortion-free lenses also include a scratch resistant finish and optional polarization.
A favorite of military, commercial, private and aerobatic pilots — including the U.S. Air Force Thunderbirds and 2009 Redbull Air Race Rookie Pete McLeod — the sunglasses are also the choice of professional golfers on the PGA, LPGA and Champions Tours, as well as fishermen and car enthusiasts, company officials said.
Retailing from $259 to $445, Scheyden Precision Eyewear is available at commercial aviation and custom eyewear retailers. For more information: Scheyden.com or 800-851-2758.
