Scheyden Precision Eyewear is debuting the company’s Albatross and Mustang models at the 2011 EAA AirVenture, going on now at Wittman Regional Airport in Oshkosh, Wisconsin.
Co-designed by company founder Jeff Herold and eyewear industry veteran Patrick Hussey, the Albatross and Mustang styles are priced $299 to $329. Albatross’ aviator-like frames are ideal for nearly every face type, while the navigator-style Mustang better suits a medium to larger fit, company officials said.
Albatross and Mustang feature an ultra-lightweight titanium frame front and temples for comfort, even when wearing a hat, headphones or a headset, officials said. Strategically-placed acetate eliminates incoming side light. Introduced in an aviation-specific non-polarized, CR-39 lens, models can be purchased at the show and attendees may order mineral glass lens styles including polarization, scheduled for an early Fall delivery.
Ideal for flying, Scheyden’s diverse product range offers functionality and sun protection, company officials said. The brand’s Classic FlipUps allow pilots to effortlessly adapt to changing light conditions. Additional models include the Composite Hybrid collection, Fixed Gear designs and Dual RX styles.
Hand-ground and polished, Scheyden’s lenses feature a hydrophobic coating to repel water and perspiration, several layers of magnesium hexafluoride to diffuse ambient light and protect pupils from harsh reflections and a scratch resistant top coat, officials add.
