June 2, 2014, Huntington Beach, Ca. - Scheyden Precision Eyewear has announced the addition of the C-130 model to its premium sunglass range.
Expanding the brand’s acclaimed Fixed Gear collection, which includes the popular Albatross and Mustang models, the C-130 ($309-345) showcases a larger lens and titanium construction. These combine to create a stylish aviator aesthetic that suits a variety of face types while providing maximum optical clarity and comfort.
“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.”
Constructed with the finest components, 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. Strategically-placed acetate serves the dual purpose of providing an attractive look and eliminating incoming side light.
Designed and manufactured to exacting standards, 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. The lenses also include a scratch-resistant finish and optional polarization.
