Revision Military, a leading producer of protective eyewear, has spent years developing best-in-class ballistic protective lenses. Similarly, Fast Metal founder, Ken Wilson (and original founder of both Gatorz and Liquid Eyewear), has spent his professional lifetime inventing and perfecting premium, made in USA, aluminum sunglasses. In this collaboration, the two companies have combined their expertise to create the Revision Speed Demon metal sunglass with Revision’s new I-Vis™ lens technology.
These sunglasses bring together state of the art lens technology with a sleek, stylish frame.
Fast Metal was built on over 35 years of experience in manufacturing the highest quality metal sunglasses by its founder, Ken Wilson. As the pioneer of the aluminum sunglass industry, Ken created the first patented 27-step procedure for manufacturing high-quality aluminum frames. Today, Fast Metal is proud to offer the world’s first and best aluminum sunglass and eyewear protection system featuring field replaceable lenses.
Over the past 20 years, Revision has grown to be the proven supplier of military protective eyewear to NATO forces around the world. This new partnership with Fast Metal is a powerful relationship that combines military and tactical industry expertise with the best in aluminum sunglass design. The goal – to create an eyewear protection system that customers not only need but want.
At Revision we believe in the power of partnerships and collaborations in bringing new and exciting technology to end-users quickly. Our new I-Vis lens technology delivers enhanced visual performance and we sought an everyday sunglass platform to offer protection, style and performance. We believe this collab is just the beginning of our partnership with Ken and the Fast Metal team.Amy Coyne, Revision CEO
So what’s so special about this new Revision Speed Demon Sunglass?
Well first, the frame is completely made out of aluminum 7075 allow that provides ANSI Z87.1 protection.
Second, it is available with Revision’s new I-Vis lens technology. This technology is an advanced dye formulation process resulting in a new series of lens tints that markedly enhance visual performance. More than a single solution, I-Vis lenses are available in six tints, each optimized for use in a different environment. Each tint is designed to increase contrast and elevate color recognition in specific geographic regions, doing so without the negative effects associated with traditional monochromatic lens tints. These Speed Demon lenses also come with Revision’s OcuMax® anti-fog and scratch coating and are field replaceable.
Finally, all frames and lenses are made in the USA; frames are made by Fast Metal in Yuma, Arizona and lenses are made by Revision in Essex Junction, Vermont.
