WILEY X®, INC. SUPPORTS MOTORCYCLE SAFETY MONTH,
REMINDS RIDERS ABOUT IMPORTANCE OF EYE PROTECTION
Company’s Growing Harley-Davidson® Performance Eyewear Line Designed to
Provide Serious Vision Protection for Men and Women
May is Motorcycle Safety Awareness Month, and leading protective eyewear manufacturer Wiley X®, Inc. is not only solidly behind the nationwide educational effort, it is also bringing into focus an important, but sometimes overlooked, aspect of riding safety — vision protection.
Motorcycle Safety Awareness Month is promoted by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), as well as numerous state highway patrol and safety organizations across the country, providing the riding public with important information on a wide range of safe riding guidelines and equipment.
For a variety of reasons including enhanced peripheral vision and wearing comfort, many riders choose to wear DOT and Snell approved helmets that don’t have full-face visors. This is where proper ANSI-rated vision protection is absolutely critical for both sharp vision and eye safety in what can be a dangerous and dynamic environment.
Meeting this important need was behind Wiley X’s recent creation of the Harley Davidson® Performance Eyewear Line, a full line of road-ready safety eyewear styles for male and female motorcycle enthusiasts. With dozens of models to choose from, this premium eyewear family embodies the Harley Davidson® lifestyle and is designed to be both stylish and comfortable enough to wear at rallies, club events and everyday activities. Yet, they also offer the advanced road vision and ANSI-rated protection riders need to be safe every time they hit the highway, whether it’s a quick trip to the store or a cross-country adventure.
“Riding without proper eyewear can be very dangerous, “ said Wiley X Co-Owner Myles Freeman, Jr. “Vision protection gear specifically engineered for riding not only protects your eyes from airborne debris, kicked up rocks, low-hanging branches, flying insects and other hazards, it also helps riders view their surroundings and better ‘read’ changing road surfaces throughout the day,” added Freeman. The Harley Davidson® line includes a wide range of frame/lens combinations designed to suit the facial structures of different riders and provide optimum visual acuity and field-of-view under a variety of riding conditions.
All Harley-Davidson® Performance Eyewear Line models provide sharp, undistracted vision and 100-percent protection against the sun’s harmful UVA/UVB rays. Every Harley-Davidson® Performance Eyewear sunglass model also meets stringent ANSI Z87 High Velocity and High Mass Impact Safety standards, providing OSHA-grade protection against a wide range of hazards encountered by riders every day. In addition, the vast majority of Harley Davidson® Performance Eyewear models are Rx-ready, making them an even better choice for riders who require prescription lenses.Harley-Davidson® Performance Eyewear products are sold through authorized Harley-Davidson® dealers nationwide.
