SAN DIEGO, California– January 30, 2020 – 100%, the San Diego-based sports performance company, is thrilled to announce a new limited edition of the S3 sunglasses that reigning cyclocross world champion Mathieu van der Poel will debut at the UCI Cyclocross World Championships in Dübendorf, Switzerland, this weekend.
“The greatest recognition in cycling is racing with the rainbow jersey of the world champion,” says 100% CEO Ludo Boinnard. “We wanted to make something unique, so this Sunday—when MVDP lines up once more against the world’s best—his one-of-a-kind neon orange S3 shield will let the entire world know that this proud Flying Dutchman is there to defend the title for his native Netherlands.”
The limited-edition S3 model features 100%’s top-of-the-line HiPER® Red Mirror lens. They are designed in California and made in Italy, with a cylindrical shield Ultra HD lens manufactured in France. The unique shape gives riders subtly softened angularity, while retaining the definitive look of unwavering power—which is especially true on the face of the multiple-time national, European and world champion.
The HiPER® Red Mirror lensis the perfect lens to boost contrast and definition in all weather conditions. The unique lens exposes shadows in the dark and also provides riders with a soft brightness in the sun that doesn’t overwhelm. 100%’s original HiPER® lens delivers unmatched protection while helping riders see more of what matters, no matter the conditions.
