Top Gear fans know that any car is only as controlled as the person behind the wheel. The technology in these glasses gives drivers the critical performance edge they’re looking for on the road or the track.
Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) December 22, 2015
BBC Worldwide North America and Eagle Eyes have announced the launch of the first-ever line of Top Gear high-performance driving glasses with features designed to improve performance behind the wheel. Coming into its 23rd season, Top Gear is the most widely viewed automotive television program in the world. Top Gear can be seen in over 200 territories worldwide and attracts A-List celebrities from all genres to appear on the show.
At launch, the line includes six styles, including ‘The Stig’ and other motoring-inspired designs. The glasses incorporate a host of exclusive high-performance lens technologies aimed at improving driving performance, including light-blocking technology originally developed by NASA scientists to protect astronauts’ eyes. The technology protects the driver’s eyesight by blocking 99.9% of harmful UVA and UVB radiation, along with scattered blue light, while allowing vision-enhancing light rays in for optimal visual perception.
Eagle Eyes, the manufacturers of the new line of driving glasses is a high-performance optics company known for developing its exclusive technologies from original NASA innovations. Their polarized TriLenium® lenses have the best reflective glare reduction available.
“Top Gear fans know that any car is only as controlled as the person behind the wheel,” said Alan Mittelman, CEO and president of Eagle Eyes. “The technology in these glasses gives drivers the critical performance edge they’re looking for on the road or the track.”
The Top Gear driving glasses will be available in early 2016 at shop.bbc.com and at select retailers across the U.S.
