When it came time to introduce a new women’s specific performance pair of sunglasses, Spy is clear – they didn’t just “pink it and shrink it.” The all new Libra was designed with a clean slate, and specifically tailored to fit the female face. Crafted with a Grilamid frame, the Libra offers 100% UV protection with 7-Base Victory lenses and ventilation with Spy’s Scoop system. Rubber nose pads and flexible temple ends help to keep the glasses in place. The Libra will be offered in 4 colors with a $90 retail.
More from Spy after the break.
From Spy: CARLSBAD, Calif.—SPY is happy to announce the addition of the female-specific Libra—an artful balance of function and fashion—to its burgeoning Performance Series. Designed from the ground up by female designers for active women who demand the proven performance of SPY’s sport-specific technologies, the Libra is specifically styled and scaled to fit the feminine face.
“Women have had to search out smaller frames designed for men, usually having to sacrifice style for fit,” says Jim Miller, SPY Performance sales director. “With the Libra, our goal was to create a sunglass with all the fit, style and aesthetic elements that a woman can appreciate, while integrating all the technical elements that the SPY Performance Series is known for.”
Designed for the active female, the Libra’s smaller-sized wraparound frame, subtle sculptural curves, and assortment of technical accoutrements make it the perfect fit for the avid cyclist and triathlete, outdoor adventurist or on-the-go mom. Constructed from lightweight, durable Grilamid™, the Libra features 7-Base Victory™ lenses offering 100% UV protection, SPY’s patented Scoop® ventilation system, and Hytrel™ rubber nose pads and flexible temple tips to ensure proper fit and comfort even in the wettest conditions.
Hitting stores this week, the Libra is available in four colorways—White with Bronze with Pink Spectra™ lens, Mint Chip Fade with Bronze lens, Black with Merlot Fade lens and Black with Grey Polarized lens. MSRP for the Libra is $90.
