    Wiley X® is expanding its line of advanced eyewear products offering Absolute Premium Protection with three new Rx-ready styles for 2017 — the company’s 30th year in business.

    With two new styles joining Wiley X’s popular Active Lifestyle Series and one new addition to the innovative Climate Control™ Series (each with multiple frame/lens combinations), there is sure to be an ideal style for every wearer and activity. The WX Ignite and WX Nash are new to Wiley X’s Active Lifestyle Series. These Rx-ready sunglasses are designed for men and women who work hard and play harder, with lightweight yet rugged frames with a rubberized nose bridge that provides a comfortable, secure fit even during high-sweat activities. The hot new WX Ignite is offered in two versions. Model #ACIGN09 combines a streamlined Matte Black frame with Polarized Blue Mirror lenses that provide excellent glare-cutting abilities and are great for driving, kayaking, fishing or any highly reflective environment. The new WX Ignite also comes in a Black Ops edition (#ACIGN01) pairing a Matte Black frame with
    versatile Smoke Grey lenses — for an understated look and all-around performance. In fact, the Black Ops edition also meets MILPRF- 32432(GL) Ballistic standards.

    The new WX Nash is offered in three configurations to suit a range of personal styles, needs and activities. Model #ACNAS08 pairs a sleek Matte Black frame with Polarized Smoke Grey lenses that deliver excellent glare cutting performance and clear vision in a wide range of environments. WX Nash Model #ACNAS09 pairs the same Matte Black frame with Wiley X’s Polarized Blue Mirror lenses. This combination is not only good looking; it provides excellent performance for fishing, boating and other watersports. Wiley X also offers a Black Ops edition (#ACNAS01) of the WX Nash, pairing Smoke Grey lenses with an understated, all-business Matte Black frame that meets MIL-PRF-32432(GL) Ballistic standards.

    Joining Wiley X’s innovative Climate Control family is the new-for-2017, Rx-ready WX
    Enzo, available in four unique frame/lens combinations. Wiley X Climate Control
    sunglasses feature a patented soft, removable Facial Cavity™ Seal designed to block out wind, airborne debris and reflected light to create a comfortable, climate-controlled
    environment for the eyes during work and play. WX Enzo Model #CCENZ07 features a
    Matte Black frame with bold-looking Polarized Emerald Mirror (Amber Tint) lenses that are ideal for wear around snow, water, roadways and other high-glare environments. A Black Ops edition WX Enzo (#CCENZ01) matches an understated Matte Black frame with Smoke Grey lenses. Wiley X also offers the WX Enzo with a Gloss Black frame and Clear lenses (#CCENZ03) that are ideal for work/safety wear and other situations where full-light transmission is desired.

  • 2017 WX NEW KRYPTEK STYLES

    by Wiley X Eyewear | Jan 06, 2017

    WILEY X® INTRODUCES THREE POPULAR SUNGLASS MODELS FEATURING INNOVATIVE, BATTLEFIELD-BASED KRYPTEK® CAMOUFLAGE PATTERNS

    Picture6

    New for 2017, protective eyewear innovator Wiley X®, Inc. is introducing three popular models that combine the company’s crystal clear vision and military-grade eye protection with the unique styling and outdoor functionality of Kryptek® camouflage.

     Each of these new models matches a popular Wiley X frame and lens combinations with a complimentary pattern from Kryptek®, a leading
    American developer of battlefield-based, backcountry-ready camouflage. These new shades can give any outdoorsman a stealthy advantage in the field or on the water, yet they offer bold styling and a distinctive look you’ll be proud to wear anywhere.
    The Climate Control™ Series WX Boss Model # CCBOS12 features a sleek, wraparound style frame outfitted with Polarized Venice Gold Mirror lenses. The advanced glare-cutting capability and amber tint of these lenses make them a versatile choice for a wide range of outdoor activities, especially those near water, snow and other reflective environments. Like all sunglasses in the Wiley X’s Climate Control
    family, this new model features a soft, removable Facial Cavity™ Seal that blocks out wind, airborne debris and reflected light and creates a comfortable, climate-controlled environment for the eyes. This WX Boss frame is completely dressed in Kryptek® Highlander® camouflage, developed for those whose adventures take them into a wide range of elevations and mixed terrain. This pairing is not only functional; it provides a matched appearance with Wiley X’s Venice Gold Mirror lenses.

    Wiley X’s popular Changeable Series WX Valor is now available with a Kryptek® Typhon™ frame. This dark-as-night pattern is the perfect compliment to the WX Valor’s stealthy look and no-nonsense performance, key reasons for its popularity with military, law enforcement and tactical wearers. Model #CHVAL12 features Polarized Smoke Grey lenses that complete this stealthy look while providing clear, distraction-free vision in a wide range of environments. Like all Changeable Series models, the WX Valor allows for easy removal and insertion of accessory lenses in the field.
    The WX Valor also features a double-injected nose bridge and temples for a comfortable, secure fit.

     Those with a passion for offshore angling will love the WX Omega Model #ACOME12, featuring Wiley X’s Polarized Emerald Mirror lenses with an Active Lifestyle Series frame dressed in Kryptek® Neptune™camouflage. This cool, shadowy-blue camo embodies an aquatic predator lurking just beneath the surface, and empowers wearers with stealth and positive attitude as they stalk their favorite blue-water game. Wiley X’s
    combination of 8-layer polarization, amber tint and emerald mirror coating give fishermen the ability to visually pierce the surface and detect cruising gamefish, shoals of baitfish and predators hiding beneath weedlines.

    All adult Wiley X sunglasses meet stringent ANSI Z87.1 High Velocity and High Mass Impact Safety standards, providing OSHA-grade protection for every type of outdoor activity. Selected models (including the WX Valor) also meet the latest updated MIL-PRF-32432 (GL) Standard for ballistic eye protection. Almost all Wiley X sunglasses are also Rx-ready using the company’s exclusive DIGIFORCE™ digital Rx lens technology, for superior prescription accuracy and unparalleled visual clarity over the widest possible field of
    vision.

  • WILEY X® ANNOUNCES THREE NEW-FOR-2017 BLACK OPS COLLECTION SUNGLASSES

    by Wiley X Eyewear | Jan 06, 2017

    New Climate Control™ and Active Lifestyle Series Shades Deliver Sharp Vision, Tactical-Grade Protection and Stealthy Good Looks 

    Picture5
    Tactical eyewear innovator Wiley X®, Inc. is adding three new Black Ops Collection sunglasses to its industry-leading lineup for 2017. Wiley X’s growing Black Ops sunglass family is known worldwide for providing wearers with tactical-grade vision protection, crystal clear vision in a variety of situations, and stealthy good looks. All Black Ops shades combine a special Matte Black frame with versatile Smoke Grey lenses for excellent performance and visual acuity over a wide range of conditions — making the series a popular choice for law 
    enforcement, shooting sports enthusiasts and other tactical wearers.

    The new Black Ops Collection Climate Control™ WX Enzo (#CCENZ01) combines advanced protection with distraction-free vision for a wide range of activities. The key to Wiley X’s Climate Control sunglasses is its unique soft, removable Facial Cavity™ Seal engineered to block out wind, airborne debris and reflected light. As a result, Climate Control sunglasses deliver superior comfort and visual acuity — even in the toughest conditions. The new Black Ops WX Enzo will give wearers the visual edge they need, whether on the job, in the field or enjoying the Great Outdoors.

    Two other additions to the 2017 Black Ops collection — WX Ignite Model (#ACIGN01) and WX Nash Model (#ACNAS01) — are a part of Wiley X’s Active Lifestyle Series. These popular shades are made for active people who enjoy rigorous outdoor activities. Their lightweight yet rugged frames feature soft rubberized temple tips for a comfortable, secure fit — even when the action gets hot and sweaty. The WX Nash is also offered with Polarized Smoke Grey lenses (#ACNAS08) for wear in high-glare environments. Both the WX Ignite and WX Nash combine stealthy good looks with protection that is up to any challenge.

     For 30 years the Wiley X name has been synonymous with state-of-the-art eye protection, and these three new Black Ops Collection models deliver on this promise. Each of these new non-polarized Black Ops styles meets MIL-PRF-32432(GL) Ballistic Standards. All adult Wiley X sunglasses also meet stringent ANSI Z87.1 High Velocity and High Mass Impact Safety standards, providing OSHA-grade protection for every type of job or outdoor activity. In addition, the new Black Ops WX Enzo, WX Ignite and WX Nash are Rx-ready using Wiley X’s exclusive DIGIFORCE™ digital Rx lens technology. DIGIFORCE delivers superior prescription accuracy and unparalleled visual clarity over the widest possible field of vision, and is available on the majority of Wiley X sunglass styles.
