Denver CO – Rudy Project, Italian crafters of award-winning performance sunglasses, helmets, prescription eyewear and gear since 1985, just released the latest addition to the 2018 eyewear lineup – the Sintryx – an innovative wraparound sunglass with a unique lens release system. A single push on the spring-loaded central logo releases the lower part of the frame, allowing the lenses to be removed and swapped out without the usual pressure on lenses and frame.
Inspired by speed and dynamically constructed, the latest performance sunglass from Rudy Project blends aesthetic styling with performance, without compromising on coverage or comfort. Offering high-wrap protection and a wide field of vision, the Sintryx is ideal for athletes looking to up their game, with a look and feel that will certainly appeal to mountain bikers and extreme skiers.
“I was amazed when I saw how easy it was to swap the lenses on the Sintryx,” said Paul Craig, President and Co-Founder of Rudy Project North America. “It’s intuitive, easy and solves all the issues athletes have had in the past changing out lenses. I am convinced it will be a new athlete favorite for everyone from mountain bikers to triathletes, and our design team has outdone themselves on the innovative frame design. Tres cool.”
The key to mountain-bike and ski-specific eyewear is having a large enough lens to provide full, protective coverage in case of debris, but ensuring enough ventilation to prevent fogging on hard climbs and hikes. The Sintryx rises to the challenge effortlessly by borrowing Power Flow Venting features from Rudy Project’s award- winning Tralyx sunglass. Additionally, the Sintryx uses a brand new adjustable Ergonose XI nose piece, co-injected with 2 different polymers for increased grip and comfort, allowing for a fog-free fit. Longtime fans of Rudy Project will also recognize the fully adjustable temple tips that allow for almost any configuration and fit, plus increased helmet compatibility with adaptive tips – the flexible temple arm ends are designed to flex when the sunglass is placed in Rudy Project’s proprietary helmet Eyewear Garage and avoid scalp injury.
“The Sintryx is my new favorite sunglass,” said Heather Jackson, who in 2016 was the first American woman to stand atop the IRONMAN® World Championship podium in over a decade. “It’s light, comfortable, and the wraparound coverage is outstanding – I can run for hours in the Arizona sun without feeling any strain on my eyes.”
