Designed to convey the company's roots and core beliefs, the new website provides insight into the brand's history and culture and spotlight's its focus on packing the most design for the price into all its performance sunglasses and goggles for snow, biking running and the outdoor lifestyle.

“Our new website enables us to connect with our customers in a much more authentic and fun way,” said Optic Nerve CEO Bill Cotton. “We really want to do a better job of telling our story and sharing the challenges and successes of extended family and the causes we support.”

The new website is substantially more content rich, with built-in social media features and a new ecommerce catalogue.

The site officially launches during Interbike, a trade show for the bicycle industry being held in Las Vegas, Sept. 19 – 21. For the first time, Optic Nerve will take part in the trade show's Demo, inviting retailers to visit Booth #D4805 to participate in a bean bag toss in exchange for a free pair of Optic Nerve sunglasses. On the trade show floor at Booth #9064, the company will also be introducing 15 new styles of sunglasses in polarized, interchangeable and light-adapting photochromic lenses.

Committed to supporting Colorado-based causes, athletes, teams and fellow businesses, Optic Nerve built the new site with a team comprised of Brand Amp, 303 Software, Design and Image and Gravity Planet. The firms' collective experience helped build a site that is strategically goal-focused, social media enabled and built with the right tools to efficiently manage the site on an ongoing basis.
