Costa’s New Rimless Cayan Comes Feature Loaded


Daytona Beach, Fla. – May 8, 2013 – “Barely there, yet loaded with performance technology,” is how Costa describes its newest sunglass style, Cayan. Pronounced KIE-an, this stylish, rimless sunglass style features an extra large rectangular shape, with no-slip temple tips and nose pads. It’s also available in Costa’s patented color-enhancing 580P™ lens technology. 

Costa’s 580P™ lenses are super lightweight and impact-resistant. The lenses block yellow light – the harshest light – from entering the eye, allowing it to truly relax. The result is razor sharp visual acuity, unparalleled polarization and elimination of reflected glare.

Cayan is available in tortoise with copper or silver mirror lenses; thunder gray with gray or blue mirror lenses; or crystal with gray or silver mirror lenses. All Costa sunglasses are 100 percent polarized and protect against harmful UV rays.

“When you’re wearing sunglasses, you don’t want to think about wearing sunglasses,” said Chas MacDonald, president of Costa Sunglasses. “ The rimless Cayan is so lightweight, you won’t even feel like you’re wearing them, and yet you still have all of the performance features you’d expect in a pair of Costas.”

Cayan starts in retail price at $159. To see more images, or to find an authorized Costa retail partner, visit
