WILEY X®, INC. LAUNCHES NEW RX RIM SYSTEM, EXPANDING PRESCRIPTION LENS OPTIONS FOR ITS POPULAR CLIMATE CONTROL™ WX ECHO AND WX GRAVITY GLASSES

Rx Rim Brings Wiley X’s ANSI-Safety Rated Vision Protection to Broad New Audience

Wiley X®, Inc. has launched its innovative Rx Rim System for 2013, expanding prescription lens ranges for its popular Climate Control™ WX Echo and WX Gravity sunglass models and bringing Wiley X’s battlefield-proven, ANSI-safety rated vision protection to a broad new audience.

The key behind this new system is a specially designed “rim” that securely holds prescription lenses into Wiley X’s lightweight, yet nearly indestructible WX Echo and WX Gravity frames. This allows these popular Wiley X wrap sunglasses to be fitted with prescription lenses ranging from +5.00 to -7.00 (versus +3.00 to -4.00 without the new Rx Rim System). This significantly expands the market for corrective lens wearers and brings Wiley X protection and style to a greater number of consumers with active lifestyles and those coveting a premium pair of wrap safety eyewear.

WX Echo and WX Gravity models fitted with new Rx Rim System still meet stringent ANSI Z87.1 High Velocity and High Mass Impact Safety Standards, ensuring state-of-the-art vision protection against a wide range of hazards encountered on the job, on the road or in the Great Outdoors. Wiley X is the only premium performance sunglass manufacturer with this level of protection in every pair of glasses it makes.

The innovative Rx Rim System seamlessly integrates prescription lenses into both the WX Echo and WX Gravity frames, maintaining their superior eye coverage, strength and stylish good looks. Both of these Climate Control™ models feature Wiley X’s patented, removable soft foam Facial Cavity™ Seal that blocks out wind dust and debris to create a comfortable, climate-controlled environment for the eyes. This exclusive design also helps reduce both eyestrain and the effects of Dry Eye Syndrome.

WILEY X®, INC. SECURES LICENSE TO PRODUCE HARLEY- DAVIDSON® PERFORMANCE
EYEWEAR FOR RIDERS WORLDWIDE


Leading premium performance eyewear manufacturer Wiley X®, Inc. has announced a new partnership with Harley-Davidson Motor Company, the result of which will be an extensive line of new Harley-Davidson® Performance Eyewear by Wiley X sunglasses. The initial collection introduced included 32 styles and phase II launch will include 8-10 Harley-Davidson exclusive frame/lens combinations available to motorcycle enthusiasts everywhere through the worldwide Harley-Davidson dealer network.

The key behind this new system is a specially designed “rim” that securely holds prescription lenses into Wiley X’s lightweight, yet nearly indestructible WX Echo and WX Gravity frames. This allows these popular Wiley X wrap sunglasses to be fitted with prescription lenses ranging from +5.00 to -7.00 (versus +3.00 to -4.00 without the new Rx Rim System). This significantly expands the market for corrective lens wearers and brings Wiley X protection and style to a greater number of consumers with active lifestyles and those coveting a premium pair of wrap safety eyewear. “We are very pleased to be working with Harley-Davidson to develop this new performance eyewear collection, and proud that the company selected Wiley X to be its performance eyewear partner after a long and detailed search,” said Wiley X Co-Owner Myles Freeman, Jr.

Wiley X and now Harley-Davidson® Performance Eyewear by Wiley X are the only “premium” performance sunglasses brands whose entire collections meet the stringent ANSI Z87.1-2003 High Velocity and High Mass Impact Safety standards. It is this advanced level of vision protection that has made Wiley X a leading provider of protective eyewear to law enforcement, Secret Service and U.S. military units around the world for more than 25 years. This also explains why Wiley X is a leading choice of top NASCAR drivers, tournament fishing champions, competitive shooters and other performance athletes who depend on clear, sharp vision to make a living.

This special Harley-Davidson® Performance Eyewear by Wiley X collection will provide riders with the same protection and performance that have made Wiley X a long-time favorite among serious motorcycle enthusiasts. Features like shatterproof frames and lenses, premium quality optics that eliminate reflected glare and harmful UVA/UVB rays, and Wiley X’s patented, removable soft Facial Cavity™ seal that keeps out wind, dust, debris and cold are key reasons Wiley X is so popular among riders. Superior fit, comfort and style are equally important, of course, and will also play a role in the new Harley-Davidson® Performance Eyewear by Wiley X.

NEW WX SAINT BRINGS STYLISH DESIGN, WORLD-CLASS PROTECTION AND MULTI-LENS VERSATILITY TO EVERY ACTIVITY UNDER THE SUN

Battle-Proven Vision Protection Has Never Looked So Good

As the newest addition to the Changeable Series from premium protective sunglass manufacturer Wiley X, Inc., the versatile WX Saint is ready for any kind of action — hiking, biking, fishing or just hanging out with friends. And with its fashionable good looks and the ability to quickly switch lenses as needed, the WX Saint doesn’t just do it all — it does it all with style.

With a sleek half-frame design, the new RX-ready WX Saint is stylish enough to go from work to weekend without missing a beat. This frame design also greatly reduces overall weight, making the WX Saint light and comfortable enough to wear all day long. In addition, the WX Saint’s rubberized nose pad and temple tips provide a secure and comfortable fit, even during the most strenuous activities.

The new WX Saint is offered in several configurations, including an eye-catching Gloss White frame with Grey Silver Flash lenses; a Gloss Black frame with Polarized Smoke Green lenses and a stealthy “Black Ops” version that matches a Matte Black frame with neutral Smoke Grey lenses. Wiley X also offers the WX Saint as a kit that combines a Matte Black frame with sets of both Clear and Smoke Grey lenses.

The new WX Saint provides the wearer with protection that goes far beyond the harmful rays of the sun. Wiley X is the only premium performance sunglass brand whose entire line meets the stringent ANSI Z87.1 High Velocity and High Mass Impact Safety standards. With this OSHA-grade protection, wearers can work hard and play hard; confident they’re protected against anything Mother Nature throws their way. The WX Saint’s protection, however, goes even further. With its shatterproof lenses and virtually indestructible frames, this new sunglass meets U.S. military ballistic standards for Combat Protective Eyewear (tested to the updated GL-PD 10-12 MCEP Standard, which supersedes the MIL-PRF-31013 Ballistic Standard). This advanced level of eye protection is an important reason why Wiley X is a leading provider of protective eyewear to law enforcement and elite U.S. military units in action around the world.

Each pair of WX Saint glasses includes a hard zipper case, lanyard and lens cleaning cloth. Because the WX Saint is RX-ready, it is a stylish, high-performance solution for outdoor enthusiasts who require corrective eyewear for any activity.

WILEY X® EYEWEAR CELEBRATES DOVER INT’L. SPEEDWAY WIN FOR MATT KENSETH
AND “WILEY X SUNGLASS MACHINE”

In Second NASCAR Sprint Cup Series Race Driving Wiley X Sponsored No. 17 Ford Fusion,
Kenseth Takes Checkered Flag at FedEx 400 Benefitting Autism Speaks

“We were already feeling like winners by taking primary sponsorship of Roush Fenway Racing’s No. 17 Ford Fusion, and were thrilled to see Matt Kenseth driving our ‘Wiley X Sunglass Machine’ on racing’s center stage,” said Wiley X Eyewear Co-Owner Myles Freeman, Jr. “Watching Matt take the checkered flag at Sunday’s NASCAR Sprint Cup Series event at Dover International Speedway, however, raised our excitement to a whole new level. As Matt and his team celebrated in Victory Lane, the entire Wiley X® Eyewear family was celebrating with him,” Freeman added.

For the second time this month, Kenseth climbed behind the wheel of this unique Wiley X sponsored car, boasting an eye-catching red/white/black color scheme and covered with Wiley X Eyewear logos. The car’s rear panel — a view some of the world’s best racers had as Kenseth passed them — features the words “Wiley X Sunglass Machine” in bold lettering.

This latest victory caps a busy and successful season so far for Kenseth, one of a select team of NASCAR drivers sponsored by Wiley X Eyewear. So far this season, Kenseth has two wins, four Top 5 finishes and five Top 10 finishes. This means Kenseth has finished Top 10 or better in each of his 11 starts so far. This latest victory gives Kenseth 342 total points, currently moving him up to 6th in the 2011 Sprint Cup Series title chase.

Kenseth’s success on Dover’s challenging “Monster Mile” track hinged not only excellent driving, but also some astute crew decisions. With the starting order and flow of the race affected by rain the night before and during the race, Kenseth had to methodically work his way up from his starting position of 24th. He had driven his way into fourth place by the time a final caution flag came on lap 362. A last-minute decision to quickly pit for fuel and two tires had Kenseth in good shape when the field restarted on lap 367. He grabbed the lead two laps later and never looked back, crossing the finish line ahead of Mark Martin, Marcos Ambrose, Kyle Busch and Brian Vickers.

The win resulted in a wealth of high-profile exposure for the Wiley X brand and the company’s aggressive racing program. “We couldn’t be prouder of Matt and his team for pulling off this exciting victory,” said Freeman. “Witnessing our car earn the checkered flag was a great experience. Watching Matt on the victory stand and doing worldwide media interviews wearing his Wiley X sunglasses and cap was like icing on the cake.”
