BOLLÉ RECLAIMS ROLE AS LEADING EYEWEAR BRAND FOR CYCLISTS
Strategy Includes Technologically-Advanced Eyewear
and Sponsorship of Orica GreenEDGE

Paris France & Overland Park, KS February 2014
– In the 1980’s and 1990’s, Bollé had a comprehensive line of cycling
eyewear and its products were worn by some of sport’s most famous names,
including: Miguel Indurain, Pedro Delgado, Alex Zülle and Laurent
Jalabert. Now, Bollé is renewing its ties to cycling with a full
selection of technologically-advanced eyewear designed for cyclists and
sponsorship of the powerhouse international team, Orica GreenEDGE.

6th Sense

Bollé
designed 6th Sense and Breakaway from a clean sheet of paper to address
the real-world needs of competitive riders. Both models possess an
array of technological advancements and provide a glimpse of the
company’s newly-adopted “equipment for your eyes” approach to making
sunglasses.

Breakaway


Grams thoughts => These both look like some really nice sunglasses, and they use some great
Bollé features, including the great B-Clear lens, sticky temple tips and
nose pads, and an aerodynamic design. Looking forward to seeing (pun
intended) how they work in real world usage.  

6th Sense and
Breakaway are fitted with Bollé’s exclusive B-Clear lenses. Made with
ultra-lightweight Trivex®, material, these lenses provide the possible
combination of visual clarity, impact resistance and light weight for
this type of application. Other features include:

1 – EXTRA WIDE FIELD OF VISION
A specific shape designed to adjust to the cyclist’s position by
extending the vision area vertically and extending the eye protection
area.

2- AERODYNAMICS
An engineered shape
that channels air flow for better condensation management, a wraparound
profile that is nearly seamless with the face.

3- HYDROPHOBIC AND OLEOPHOBIC COATINGS
Applied to the inside lens surface protect from the rain and damp and prevents smudge marks from fingers.

4- ANTI-FOG COATING
No fogging under any circumstance. Not only repels vision-clouding
condensation, it is revived by a simple application of moisture.

5- THERMOGRIP® TEMPLE TIPS AND NOSE PADS
Comfortable, hydrophilic nose pads and temple tips maintain the sunglasses in place.

6- OPTIC CONTROL SYSTEM
Interchangeability allows lenses to be quickly and easily removed and replaced to match the tint to the conditions.

Available
now, 6th and Breakaway are offered in a number of different color
combinations and lens options. Prices range from $179.99 to $199.99.
