, Calif.—The cycling world has been waiting on the edge of its saddle—well technically, the rivet on the edge of its saddle—and now we can all rejoice; the Rivet
has arrived. This newest edition to SPY’s fast-growing performance line boasts a semi-rimless hybrid frame, unique design technology and leading-edge styling. Engineered for every facet of a long tour, the Rivet offers a convertible ride with more options than a Belgian ale house.
“This latest evolution of our Performance Series
, the Rivet, features all of the technological innovations that are quickly making SPY Performance eyewear the big story in cycling,” says Michael Marckx, SPY’s president and CEO. “The smooth styling and rounded edges come wrapped in a variety of colors, all designed to help you stand out while hammering on the front, on the rivet.”
Constructed to handle the hottest sweat-soaked rides and punishing inclimate weather, the Rivet features SPY’s patented Scoop® venting system; impact resistant, optically-correct, distortion-free 8-base ARC® (Accurate Radius Curve) lenses; anti-fog technology; and hydrophobic and oleophobic coatings to keep vision clear even in the most gritty and grimy of conditions. Fashioned from flexible Grilamid™, this performance piece has environmentally reactive Hytrel™ rubber temple tips; integrated hinge system; available glare-reducing premium Trident™ polarized lenses; and UVA, UVB and UVC protective treatments.
“I need to be able to concentrate 100 percent on what’s happening in a race,” says SPY Performance athlete and two-time elite national cyclo-cross champion, Ryan Trebon. “The Rivet is super lightweight, provides a full field of vision and works great for any athletic endeavor—whether you’re chasing KOM’s or gearing up for the local 10K.”
Hitting stores at $95 to $135 MSRP, the Rivet is available in black, black polarized, crystal, matte black, silver and smoke frame colors. Replacement Rivet lenses come in select colors and range from $20 for non-polarized to $40 for polarized versions. The newest addition to SPY’s ever-expanding Performance Series
