SPY pulls away from the pack with the Rivet

by Brian Mullin on August 5, 2012

CARLSBAD,
Calif.—The cycling world has been waiting on the edge of its
saddle—well technically, the rivet on the edge of its saddle—and now we
can all rejoice; the Rivet
has arrived. This newest edition to SPY’s fast-growing performance line
boasts a semi-rimless hybrid frame, unique design technology and
leading-edge styling. Engineered for every facet of a long tour, the
Rivet offers a convertible ride with more options than a Belgian ale
house.

“This latest evolution of our Performance Series,
the Rivet, features all of the technological innovations that are
quickly making SPY Performance eyewear the big story in cycling,” says
Michael Marckx, SPY’s president and CEO. “The smooth styling and rounded
edges come wrapped in a variety of colors, all designed to help you
stand out while hammering on the front, on the rivet.”

Constructed
to handle the hottest sweat-soaked rides and punishing inclimate
weather, the Rivet features SPY’s patented Scoop® venting system; impact
resistant, optically-correct, distortion-free 8-base ARC® (Accurate
Radius Curve) lenses; anti-fog technology; and hydrophobic and
oleophobic coatings to keep vision clear even in the most gritty and
grimy of conditions. Fashioned from flexible Grilamid™, this performance
piece has environmentally reactive Hytrel™ rubber temple tips;
integrated hinge system; available glare-reducing premium Trident™
polarized lenses; and UVA, UVB and UVC protective treatments.

 “I
need to be able to concentrate 100 percent on what’s happening in a
race,” says SPY Performance athlete and two-time elite national
cyclo-cross champion, Ryan Trebon. “The Rivet is super lightweight,
provides a full field of vision and works great for any athletic
endeavor—whether you’re chasing KOM’s or gearing up for the local 10K.”

Hitting
stores at $95 to $135 MSRP, the Rivet is available in black, black
polarized, crystal, matte black, silver and smoke frame colors.
Replacement Rivet lenses come in select colors and range from $20 for
non-polarized to $40 for polarized versions. The newest addition to
SPY’s ever-expanding Performance Series; the Rivet joins the Screw, OTF, Alpha and Quanta.
