New line targets bicyclists.
A new line of photochromic lenses promises literally a split-second ability to change tints. CTRLEyewear ‘s CTRL ONE glasses “are on their way to market after a successful Indiegogo fundraising campaign that raised in excess of $500,000,” says an online magazine for cyclists. The 0.1-second time for changing tints is said to be especially beneficial to bike riders. “Luxembourg ex-pro cyclist Andy Schleck, winner of the 2010 Tour de France, is a supporter of the product and the concept behind it, stating on the CTRL ONE site that in his opinion ‘in two years the entire peloton will use this type of eyewear.’”
