Paris (FRA), May 2018: For the past 3 years, Serengeti® has been reinforcing its DNA and passion for driving with the 24H Le Mans. With their shared commitments to timelessness, history, innovation and performance, this partnership seemed to be a natural match and the 24H Le Mans by Serengeti Limited Edition sunglass collection was created. The inspiration for this collection and the desire to highlight all its strength was derived from the circuit track itself. For over a century, Serengeti® has considered every detail, assessed every aspect of its lenses, frames and aesthetic design and as the pioneer of Photochromic and Spectral Control® technology, Serengeti remains today the most advanced eyewear in the sunglass industry. This is more than passion. This is what drives us.

Fabrice Bourrigaud, Marketing and Communication Director at ACO declared:
“We are really happy to partner with Serengeti Eyewear who have huge experience and a recognized know-how in the sunglass industry. It really makes sense for the ACO to start this partnership and we are excited to offer our fans sunglasses that provide superior performance, quality, style and with a special design using Le Mans branding.”

The 24H Le Mans by Serengeti Limited Edition sunglass collection features 5 models in various colourways and offers the best of Serengeti’s technology in Polar PhD™ Trivex lenses. Price £159.

POLAR PhD™ 2.0 TRIVEX LENS
Each lens is built with NXT® technology and made from Trivex material, which is
75% lighter than glass and 10% lighter than polycarbonate. Trivex was adapted from fighter jet canopies and helicopter windshields, and designed to withstand extreme impact and temperature changes. The PhD™ 2.0 next generation lenses still feature hydro and oleophobic front-side
coatings, which help repel water, fingerprints, and debris, while a new highly durable backside anti-fog treatment enables perfect vision and better performance, whatever the activity.

 

DRIVERS®
The amber-colored Drivers lens naturally amplifies contrast and definition. By working so your eyes don’t have to, Drivers lenses relax eye muscles, reducing stress and fatigue.

555nm®
Named after the part of the color spectrum that the eye sees the easiest, the
555nm is ideal for bright conditions in and around water. The lens manages yellow and green light to relax the eyes while the light silver metallic mirror coating* reflects glare.

555nm® Blue
As a beautiful variation of the 555nm, the 555nm Blue features a reflective blue dielectric mirror coating, which offers a category 2 to 3 555nm lens protection.

With the priority of providing precisely the right amount of protection and perfect comfort in all light conditions, the collection offers a unique 3-in-1 lens technology:
- Photochromic technology - by darkening in bright sunlight and lightening in overcast conditions, the lenses allow the eyes to adapt to any light, anywhere.
- Spectral Control® technology - this proprietary technology filters specific light wavelengths, sharpening the way you see color contrast and improving visual definition.
- Polarizing technology - effectively eliminates harsh glare, a pervasive and potentially dangerous threat for many drivers.
