February 6, 2024

Introducing: Astral, Sirius, Stellar

San Clemente, CA, February 6, 2024 /ENDURANCE SPORTSWIRE/ Rudy Project, Italian designers of sports performance eyewear and helmets, announces the launch of its highly anticipated sunglasses collection for early 2024. Building on the success of the 2023 KELION, a premier sports sunglass designed to elevate the performance of athletes, Rudy Project introduces the Astral, Sirius, and Stellar sunglasses — a triumphant continuation of the brand’s commitment to excellence in design, technology, and performance.

All frames are made with Rilsan® Clear, a high-performance, sustainable, bio-based polymer of 100% renewable origin developed by Arkema. Rilsan® Clear’s key properties are lightness, chemical and fatigue resistance, flexibility, and easy processability, making it extremely durable, shock- and weather-resistant, and perfectly suitable for sports use.

Chris Lupo, Director of Sports Marketing at Rudy Project North America, stated, “Rudy Project eyewear embodies best-in-class design, technology, and performance. We are proud to introduce three new models which complement our current eyewear collection. Each model has been meticulously crafted in Italy for athletes, adventurers, and anyone who demands the highest quality of their eyewear.”
