Wiley X Introduces New WX Valor Shooting Glasses

posted on December 30, 2011

Wiley X has added the new WX Valor to its popular Changeable Series of protective eyewear, designed to provide shooting enthusiasts with an unparalleled level of vision protection, optical performance and versatility. These new prescription-ready glasses combine cutting-edge style and a popular half-frame design that is equally appropriate for serious shooting, sports activities or just socializing.

The new WX Valor gives shooters same advanced protection that has made Wiley X a leading provider of eyewear to U.S. military forces for 25 years, earning the stringent ANSI-Z87.1-2003 Impact Standards rating as well as U.S. military specifications for combat eyewear (MIL-PRF-31013). In fact, Wiley X is the only premium performance eyewear brand with this stringent ANSI-Z87.1-2003 High Velocity Impact rating on every pair of sunglasses it makes—ensuring the highest level of protection for every outdoor activity.

With a range of available configurations and the option to purchase additional lenses, the WX Valor can easily adapt to a wide variety of tasks and light conditions. The Black Ops WX Valor (Model CHVAL01) features a stealthy combination of Smoke Grey lenses and a Matte Black frame designed to meet the uniform needs of law enforcement and secret service personnel. WX Valor Model CHVAL02 combines a Gloss Black Frame with Wiley X's distinctive Bronze Flash Lenses for superior performance with good looks. WX Valor Model CHVAL04 features Polarized Smoke Green Lenses–ideal for reducing reflected glare and for use on the water–with a unique Metallic Silver frame. To cover a wide variety of situations, the WX Valor Model CHVAL06 provides a complete shooter's system, matching a Matte Black frame with interchangeable Smoke Grey, Clear and Light Rust lenses. The new WX Valor is also prescription-ready, making it an ideal choice for shooters who require corrective lenses.

Extra interchangeable lenses are also available, turning every pair of WX Valor sunglasses into an adaptable eyewear system for shooters. These lenses are designed to be easily removed and replaced in the field, for the ability to quickly adjust to any light conditions and shooting situation. Whichever lens you choose, Wiley X's superior optics provide shooters with clear, distortion-free vision in any conditions. These same characteristics of advanced protection, versatility, optical quality and style also make the new WX Valor an ideal eyewear choice for law enforcement and tactical use.
