GFNY Sunglasses to compliment growing line of GFNY Apparel
NEW YORK CITY, May 17, 2018 – The founders of GFNY and organizers of the Campagnolo GFNY World Championship have added sunglasses to the growing line of gear available under the GFNY brand. The sunglasses are available in three designs. Speed are the technical cycling sunglasses for use in training and racing. Podium and Riviera are for casual wear off the bike.
GFNY sunglasses are a much-anticipated addition to GFNY offerings. They perfectly complement GFNY Apparel (both the technical cycling clothing and the casual clothing), and GFNY accessories like gear bags, backpacks, shoulder bags and wallets.
“These sunglasses are made for cyclists by cyclists, with close attention to every detail”, said Lidia Fluhme, President and co-founder of GFNY. “GFNY Sunglasses have taken one year of development and are based on 20 years of experience in road cycling. We had a long list of specifications that are critical to how cyclists expect their sunglasses to perform and we did not make any sacrifices. While many brands make sunglasses and some happen to be useful for cycling, GFNY Sunglasses are made to fit a cyclist’s needs. Plus, they look awesome.”
GFNY Speed sunglasses are extremely technical and designed specifically for cycling. The frame consists of revolutionary TR90 engineered plastic making the sunglasses extremely light but very durable. Other features of GFNY Speed include:
- Provide the largest possible field of vision while maintaining comfort
- Lenses offer outstanding transparency for the sharpest, most detailed visibility of your surroundings while keeping out harmful UV rays
- The strong frame and polycarbonate lenses are extremely resistant to stress cracks to keep you safe.
- Top ventilation panels provide a special method of airflow to minimize fogging.
- Bendable rubber ends are made with ultra-light flexible metal wires that can be adjusted to grip your head and keep the sunglasses comfortably in place
- Rubber nose pads adjust for your comfort
- Amazing style that will make you feel like a million bucks
- Made in Italy
The GFNY Podium and Riviera sunglasses complement the cycling specific Speed with off-the bike style. Whether it’s on a GFNY podium in Colombia or when strolling along the Italian Riviera watching Tirreno-Adriatico, GFNY sunglasses guarantee style and awesomeness.
