Operating in tactical environments demands the ability to evolve and change to meet a wide range of potential threats.

Which is why industry leader Wiley X has delivered the world’s most cutting edge products to serve and protect those who fight for our freedom, and part of the company’s approach to excellence is based on continual improvements based on R&D and direct feedback from the field.

Enter the newest addition to the company’s edgy Changeable Series – the Wiley X Saber Advanced – which takes its own well-deserved reputation for unmatched protection and visual acuity and kicks it up a notch, great for a motorcyclist.

Veteran owned and operated Wiley X recently achieved ISO 9001:2008 certification as part of its ongoing commitment to continually advance its existing top-of-the-line manufacturing processes.

Wiley X is the only premium sunglass manufacturer who certifies all of its products to exceed ANSI Z87.1-2003 high velocity and high mass impact standards. Honoring that enviable heritage, the new Wiley X Saber Advanced meets stringent MIL-PRF-31013 military ballistic standards as well as ANSI Z87.1-2003 high impact certification (OSHA Occupational Eye Protection) – with a solid 3.0mm thick lens – the thickest, most durable lens available in the tactical eyewear market.

These lenses are made of scratch-resistant and shatterproof Selenite polycarbonate, and are backed up with the company’s signature High Velocity Protection (HVP) to present an unencumbered field of view.

This diverse new offering comes with five versatile lens systems, so it can be tailored to meet the widest array of field applications on the planet. From the hard core new Saber Advanced X2 system, road and range ready with two complete interchangeable systems in one – with both smoke grey and clear lenses, to the Saber Advanced Model #309, with its unique smoke grey/light rust/vermillion lens package, this new series from Wiley X is created to protect the eye in any environment.

Each of the systems has an Ultra Foam Brow Bar to keep sweat and debris off your face, unbreakable matte black frames, and a rugged, well-engineered design providing wrap-around protection that not only delivers powerful, battlefield-tested ballistic impact resistance, but also provides 100% UVA and UVB protection.

Even with all of these industry-leading features, it’s also the best value on the market (Single Lens Systems #302 and #303 have an MSRP of $38.00, while the Saber Advanced X2 has an unbeatable suggested retail price of $72.00.)

Many tactical situations are best dealt with using protection for ears and eyes, so the Wiley X Saber Advanced is designed to allow seamless transition to effectively and comfortably pair with over-the-head hearing protection earmuffs.

Simply remove the sturdy temple arms and then replace them with the included rugged, snap-in elastic strap to both reduce pressure on the head under a helmet and ensure a secure fit during jarring strides or rides.

Plus, the Wiley X Saber Advanced has an optional Rx plug-in that will soon be available to seamlessly fit most prescriptions, and has a tailored ‘take flight’ nose piece to adapt to a wide range of nose shapes and sizes – so it stays right in place when the heat is on.
