In 2011 I will be wearing Rudy Project helmets and eye wear for the fourth season. I just ordered a bunch of new gear from e-rudy.com that is going to make me look awesome while training, racing, and gazing into my bright future. I got Fluo Pink road and TT helmets, which Iâ€™m hoping are not overkill. Iâ€™m also banking on USA Triathlon not to mandate that we wear red on our ITU uniforms, or I may look like a Valentines Day present while racing (probably not as effective as a bouquet of roses). For sunglasses, Iâ€™m a huge fan of the Noyz and Zyon frames, so it was with a bit of hesitation that I decided to try out the new Gozen and Swifty frames. Fortunately, Matt Chrabot and Sarah Haskins already tried out both of those frames and have assured me that they live up to the high standards I have for Rudy Project eyewear.
Rudy Project is also making Rx lenses for their sunglasses that pop right into your favorite frames. Iâ€™m planning to get some ImpactX Photopolorized clear Rx lenses so that I can train in the winter without contacts.
I take a lot of pride in the long-term relationships I’ve developed with my core sponsors since I turned pro in 2008. Rudy Project was one of my first sponsors, and after three years of working together I know I can trust the quality of their products. If youâ€™re in the market for a high quality set of sunglasses with an unbeatable warranty from a friendly company, click on over to e-rudy.com or check them out at a local dealer.
