Costa Sunglasses Goes Rimless with New Galveston, Rockport, Seadrift


Daytona Beach, Fla. – May 14, 2012 – Think of Costa's three new styles – Galveston, Rockport and Seadrift – as rimless sunglasses on steroids. These sleek, sporty styles are unique with full eye coverage and lightweight fit, without compromising durability.

Galveston features large square-shaped lenses for optimal coverage on the water, while Rockport offers thicker, wider temples to block light from entering on the sides. The smaller, super lightweight Seadrift is ideal for high impact, velocity sports where speed is key.

All three styles feature adjustable no-slip Hydrolite™ nose pads and Costa's signature nylon co-injected temple tips for “forget-they're-on” fit and durability. Each is available in Costa's 580P™ 100 percent polarized lens technology, which blocks yellow light from entering the eye, creating razor sharp color enhancement and eliminating glare.

The styles' color combinations include tortoise frames with copper or silver mirror lenses, or black or silver frames with gray or blue mirror lenses. They retail from $169 to $189, depending on lens selection.

“You've seen rimless sunglass styles before, but not with the level of engineering ingenuity placed in these new Costas,” said Chas MacDonald, president of Costa Sunglasses. “Even though they're so lightweight, you'll be amazed at the strength these frames have to offer.”

Costa's new Galveston, Rockport and Seadrift are available online now at and also at authorized Costa retail outlets.
