Checkpoint Zero, LLC announced today that it has formed a multi-year partnership with Numa Tactical. The maker of high quality sunglasses will provide eyewear to members of top ranked adventure racing team Checkpoint Zero/GoLite, Checkpoint Zero’s staff and reporters and to the winning team at each event in the 2008 Checkpoint Tracker National Points Series.
“Numa Tactical’s unbreakable eyewear is ideally suited to adventure racing,” commented Paul “Yak” Angell. “Even if you mange to avoid stepping on them in a transition area or landing face first when you go over the handlebars, adventure racing is a rough sport that will quickly reduce more delicate shades to expensive trash.”
All Numa frames are crafted from patented Swiss Materialâ„¢, a dependably sturdy, yet also flexible and extremely lightweight fiber. The advanced characteristics of this material, together with a dedication to the highest level of design and quality standards, place Numa Tactical on the cutting-edge of its field.
“We’re very excited to be working with Checkpoint Zero to introduce our products to adventure racers across the United States,” said Jake Bennett, founder and CEO of Numa Tactical. “Our experience with XTerra tells us that when AR athletes get the chance to inspect Numa’s crash-proof sunglasses up close, they will discover that they have found a crucial piece of gear that they didn’t even know they were looking for. Numa was made for this market – serious athletes who demand the best in ultra-light, super-rugged, high quality gear.”
