Cutting Edge Lens Technology Meets Award-Winning Eyewear
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
SAN CLEMENTE, CA – Rudy Project, a worldwide leader in sports eyewear, and Shamir, manufacturer and designers of revolutionary RX lenses, announce today a partnership to craft the world’s most technically advanced prescription sports solutions to meet the demanding needs of athletes from weekend warriors to Pros. The union of technologies between these two brands will bring a suite of advanced features and benefits to RX sport and fashion sunwear.
By combining Rudy Project’s award-winning, techno-geometric Italian frames which incorporate lightweight materials such as Kynetium™ and fully adjustable temple arms and nose pieces, with Shamir’s recently launched Attitude III® progressive and single vision sun lenses, the companies will create a revolutionary new sport and fashion sunwear line unlike anything seen in the industry before. This ultimate RX solution will be edged at Shamir’s new edging facility located in Los Angeles, CA, where jobs will be processed quickly with accurate precision.
“Capitalizing on the knowledge of our lens designs and edging expertise, we have taken optics, precision and aesthetics of finished eyewear to a new level,” said Nir Shmuel, VP Operations of Shamir. “Each job processed at Shamir’s edging facility is analyzed based on the Shamir design, the patient’s RX and the intricacies of the frame to ensure that the final product provides superior optics and unmatched cosmetics,” added Shmuel.
“Shamir represents the pinnacle of lens technology and we are delighted to bring their new Attitude III lenses to the Technically Cool Rudy Project line,” said Brad Shapiro, Rudy Project Principal. “Our relationship began several years ago with the launch of Rudy Project’s FreeForm TEK™ lenses which were fabricated in our proprietary ImpactX lens material, creating a virtually indestructible lens with amazing optical properties. Now, we’re excited to strengthen that relationship as we utilize Shamir’s new Attitude III lenses which will again be crafted in our award-winning ImpactX material.”
