Spy Reveals Three New Sunglass Styles for Summer 2006 Launch of New Mosaic(TM) Lens Technology

CARLSBAD, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Jan. 20, 2006--Spy is pleased to reveal the upcoming release of three new sunglass styles for summer 2006.

The Gallo, Hourglass, and Nolen frames are all built from comfortable propionate. Nolen and Hourglass feature 8-base ARC(R) lenses with 100% UV protection, metal details, and a hand-polished finish. The Nolen has sleek curves with a low-profile style, while the Hourglass, BMX pro Cory Nastazio's signature sunglass, is full of space-age design mixed with 1980s flavor. Both the Nolen and the Hourglass are available in four color choices.

A bold, retro-futuristic frame with a sculptural temple shape and hand-set metal accents, the Gallo is the most forward design of the three styles for summer and has the honor of debuting with Spy's new Mosaic(TM) multi-base ARC(R) lenses. Spy Mosaic(TM) lenses provide vintage 1970s style with futuristic optical engineering. Mosaic(TM) lenses have a dynamic lens curvature, which closely conforms to the contours of the face with a "multi" base curve that varies from 3.5 to 24-base. The entire lens surface has been engineered for superior optical performance. Mosaic(TM) exceeds all international standards for optical clarity under ANSI Z80.3, 2001; EN1836, 1997; and AS/NZS 1067, 2003. Wearers can be confident that Mosaic(TM) delivers crystal clear, blur free vision with 100% UV protection. The Gallo is available in three frame color choices.
