PROVIDING ABSOLUTE PREMIUM PROTECTION FOR MORE THAN 30 YEARS
You can tell a lot about a company by the people who use its products. Soldiers facing the danger of flying dust, debris and shrapnel. Motorcyclists racing across the countryside with speeds up to 130 km/h or more. Professional anglers depending on high performance polarized eyewear. Construction workers applying power tools during a hard day’s work. These and many other “adventurers” are the people, who wear Wiley X eyewear and rely on the company’s proven protection in the most extreme conditions.
Wiley X was born more than 30 years ago to meet the vision protection needs of U.S. soldiers, law enforcement and others who put their lives — and their eyes — on the line every day. Founded by a Veteran, Wiley X has always had the health and goodwill of our brave servicemen and women at heart. The experts at Wiley X developed advanced frame materials and shatterproof Selenite™ polycarbonate lenses designed to protect the precious gift of sight in dangerous situations and extreme conditions. Wiley X sunglasses are rigorously tested to ensure they meet the highest safety standards, including ANSI Z87.1 High Velocity and High Mass Impact safety ratings, EN.166 Impact Standards, and for select models, the latest updated MIL-PRF-32432 (GL) Standard for ballistic eye protection. Wiley X is the only premium performance eyewear brand with OSHA-grade ANSI-Z87.1 & EN.166 protection (or more) in every pair of glasses it makes. Almost every Wiley X style is also prescription-lens-ready, ensuring that those who require prescription lenses can enjoy the same confidence, clear vision and comfort.
Over the years, Wiley X has pioneered numerous innovations, including its Climate Control™ Series glasses with a patented, removable soft foam Facial Cavity™ Seal that blocks out wind, dust and reflected light for superior comfort and enhanced vision. Other key developments include Wiley X’s innovative Changeable Series glasses, providing state-of-the-art protection while allowing wearers to quickly switch lenses to suit changing light conditions. Furthermore a long-term cooperation with prescription lens manufacturer Shamir® has opened up access to the groundbreaking Free Form™ digital RX lens technology that delivers enhanced visual clarity and color contrast while ensuring a wider field of vision. In addition, Wiley X's glove line offers the ultimate in hand protection while allowing for maximum function and dexterity.
Wiley X’s constantly growing product line includes models for the workplace, specialized styles for hunting, boating, fishing, tactical and fashionable, functional sunglasses for every outdoor activity and situation. The company actively sponsors top shooters like Anders Golding and Alberto Rizzini, world-class anglers such as Peter Hornak, Charles Jardine and Luca Quintavalla, as well as other high-profile athletes and personalities drawing attention to the need for high-performance eye protection in an exciting and dangerous world.
What will the next 30 years bring for Wiley X? Certainly, there will be new styles, new innovations and new products that will bring the company’s proven protection to an ever-growing audience.
