Performance eyewear brand, REVO, announces the release of its new sunglass styles for Spring 2012, with three of the four styles featuring our REVO Crystal™ glass lenses. With a rich heritage in glass lenses, and on the heels of the well received 2011 Water lens debut, REVO has combined the best of both worlds by offering a REVO Crystal™ Water lens in three new styles - the Headway™, Windspeed™ and Square Classic. To complement these introductions, REVO will also offer Descend™, a rimless style with four Serilium™ (polycarbonate) lens shape options.

REVO Crystal lenses are built from REVO’s proprietary high-grade optical glass that is highly scratch resistant. This is paired with REVO’s High Contrast Polarization™ which enhances color, clarity and contrast while effectively blocking glare, as well as Taper Corrected Optics which ensure unparalleled optical accuracy.

The HEADWAY™ is REVO’s first nylon frame to feature the Crystal Water lens. It is also the first style to include our detachable leash and floating buoy. Thanks to the buoyancy of the newly designed buoy component, when the leash and buoy are connected to the eyewear, the eyewear will float rather than sink if dropped in water. This active design, additionally featuring a flush mount spring hinge, is a comfortable, versatile option for any activity, on or off the water.

·The Headway will come with REVO’s first ever removable leash and floating buoy - perfect for quickly recovering your glasses should they fall into the water, or remove the leash/buoy for everyday wear
·REVO Eco-Use™ frames are made in part from the seed of the castor bean plant as an alternative to entirely petroleum-based nylon frames 
·A flush mount metal spring hinge provides a consistent secure fit for maximum comfort across a wide array of head sizes
·Hydrophilic nose and stem pads provide a secure fit and are sweat and chemical resistant
·Motion-Fit™ system balances pressure points to provide an extremely comfortable fit that stays in place during activity
·Available with REVO’s Graphite, Bronze and Water Crystal lens options



Retail price of Headway - $209.00 US

The WINDSPEED™ combines a sleek, timeless design great for all faces with some of REVO’s key technical features. It is perfect for the recreational boater, or a traveler in need of style without sacrificing performance. 

·Ultra-lightweight nickel silver frame design
·Bio-feel adjustable nose pads provide comfort and flexibility that easily conform for a secure fit; hypoallergenic and are easy to clean
·Curved temples with rubber coating for secure fit
·Motion-Fit™ system balances pressure points to provide an extremely comfortable fit that stays in place during activity
·Available with REVO’s Graphite, Bronze and Water Crystal lens options

Retail price of Windspeed - $209.00 US

The SQUARE CLASSIC is inspired by the classic style that REVO was first recognized for in the 1980’s when skiing legends sported REVO sunglasses.

·REVO Eco-Use™ frames are made in part from the seed of the castor bean plant as an alternative to entirely petroleum-based nylon frames
·Motion-Fit™ system balances pressure points to provide an extremely comfortable fit that stays in place during activity
·Available with REVO’s Graphite, Bronze, Water and Classic Orange Crystal lens options

Retail price of Square Classic - $209.00 US

The DESCEND™ collection consists of a rimless frame style with four different lens shape options, all featuring REVO Serilium lenses. The Descend collection offers a lightweight, active option to the outdoor enthusiast. Each of the four lens options is designed to implement prescription availability, a first for REVO in its rimless style offerings.

    REVO Eco-Use™ frames are made in part from the seed of the castor bean plant as an alternative to entirely petroleum-based nylon frames
    Motion-Fit™ system balances pressure points to provide an extremely comfortable fit that stays in place during activity
    Hydrophilic nose and stem pads provide a secure fit and are sweat and chemical resistant
    Each Descend style will feature a detachable, floatable leash (the buoyancy of the leash will float the eyewear should they fall into water)
    Available with REVO’s Graphite, Bronze and Water Serilium lens options



    Retail price of Descend collection styles - $169.00 US

    The entire Spring 2012 collection offers REVO's premium lens technologies, including:

    Lens:

      REVO High Contrast Polarized lenses block glare while maintaining industry-leading clarity
      REVO lenses that block 100% of UVA, UVB and UVC light up to 400 nm
      Element Shed™ hydrophobic/oleophobic and anti-reflective lens coatings
      Taper Corrected Lens technology eliminates optical distortion, ensuring that light is correctly bent where it should be for true and accurate optics



      All four styles are available with Authentic REVO prescription lenses (+2.00 through -3.00 combined power).

      Select colors of Headway and Windspeed will be available exclusively at Sunglass Hut in March. All styles (Headway, Windspeed, Square Classic and Descend) will be available through REVO’s standard distribution in May 2012.
