Eyewear Innovator Brings its Mobile Merchandising Unit/Tech Center to
"World's Greatest Aviation Celebration" July 29-August 4

Providing absolute, premium protection to all those who push the envelope of excitement - whether on the water, on the racetrack or in the air - is what Wiley X®, Inc. is all about.  So it makes perfect sense for this leading eyewear manufacturer to once again return to EAA Airventure, "The World's Greatest Aviation Celebration" in Oshkosh, Wisconsin.  This annual event is so well known by aviation enthusiasts worldwide, that when they say, "we're going to Oshkosh," people automatically know what they mean.

This year's event will be held from July 29-August 4, when more than half a million members of the EAA (Experimental Aircraft Association) and other flying fans from around the globe will descend on this normally quiet town to enjoy daily air shows, aerobatics, pyrotechnic displays, workshops and other fun activities related to general aviation.  Wiley X will be front and center during all these festivities, thanks to its unique Mobile Merchandising Unit/Tech Center, a custom 26-foot trailer designed to engage and entertain visitors while promoting the need for serious eye protection at work or at play.  This trailer has proven very popular at events around the nation, educating visitors with an "eye-catching" combination of graphics, product displays, television monitors, printed materials and on-site vision protection experts.

Clear, distortion-free vision under a wide range of environmental and light conditions is critical for pilots, helping to improve their situational awareness.  Wiley X's advanced lenses - including many polarized models - help reduce eyestrain and enhance visual acuity while eliminating damaging UVA/UVB rays.    

Wiley X's protection, however, goes far beyond the harmful rays of the sun.  Every pair of Wiley X sunglasses meets stringent ANSI Z87.1 High Velocity and High Mass Impact Safety standards, providing OSHA-grade protection for all wearers and a wide range of activities. Wiley X is the only premium sunglass brand with this level of vision protection in every pair of glasses it makes. Selected Wiley X models also meet the updated MIL-PRF-32432 (GL) MCEP Standard (superseding the GL-PD 10-12 MCEP Standard) for combat protective eyewear. This level of proven protection is a key reason why Wiley X is a top eyewear choice for law enforcement and other tactical applications in addition to military users.

Wiley X has introduced several exciting new models for 2013 that should be a hit with flying enthusiasts, including the WX Saint, a stylish new member of its Changeable Series that lets wearers switch lenses to suit light conditions.  The new WX Static is a bold new addition to Wiley X's popular Street Series family, combining serious protection and superior vision with bold styling.  Also new to the Wiley X roster for 2013 are stealthy, polarized "Black Ops" editions of its popular WX Censor, WX Twisted and WX Valor models.  With understated Matte Black frames and polarized Smoke Grey Lenses, these glasses are a top choice of law enforcement, secret service and other tactical wearers.  Most Wiley X sunglass models are Rx ready, and as a special addition to the company's display at Oshkosh this year, representatives will be on hand to measure prescriptions and take orders for stylish and protective Wiley X eyewear right at the show.
