DENVER, CO. (September 14, 2010) â€“ Optic Nerve, the Denver-based sport sunglass manufacturer, will introduce three new performance eyewear pieces at the 2010 Interbike Trade Expo in Las Vegas, NV next week. Designed with cyclists in mind, Optic Nerve’s new styles have an increased focus on anti-fogging, secure, durable fit, and wide-range variable light performance at an affordable price point.
Inspired by Optic Nerve’s Colorado roots, the new styles were designed to provide cyclists with high quality optical protection and sleek, aerodynamic styling at prices ranging from $49 to $79, giving riders the durability, performance and value they demand.
â€œWhen you are flying down the trail or a mountain pass, every design specification is critical,â€ says Tom Fox, an avid cyclist and VP of Product Design for Optic Nerve. â€œCycling eyewear must fit securely and comfortably inside your helmet; your field of vision cannot be impaired by glare, wind, dust or sweat. We took all these factors into account when designing these new styles.â€
