Scheyden Precision Eyewear Sponsors Renowned Aerobatic Pilot Super Dave Mathieson

Scheyden Precision Eyewear Sponsors Renowned Aerobatic Pilot Super Dave Mathieson

 

Star Aviator to Fly Custom Scheyden MX2 Plane While Wearing Brand’s Premium Sunglasses
 
Scheyden Precision Eyewear – the market leader for premium lenses and frames engineered for aviation, fishing and golf, among other pursuits – announces that star air show pilot “Super Dave” Mathieson has joined Team Scheyden and will fly a customized Scheyden MX2 aerobatic aircraft while sporting the company’s popular sunglasses and the soon-to-be-released True Aviator watch.



A world class aviator renowned for his skill and bravado, Super Dave became an air show pilot four years ago and has now been flying for 27 years. During that span he logged more than 16,000 commercial hours on 175 different types of aircraft. Wearing the Scheyden Fixed Hybrid Jet-A glasses the Ontario, Canada native now hurls his body at 300 knots in his new Scheyden-wrapped 385 horsepower plane. Starting in January 2014, Mathieson and his ultra-rare MX2 – one of only 11 in the world – will be featured in a major cable network reality series about air show pilots.



“As a pilot myself, watching Super Dave Mathieson carving turns and rolling and tumbling his aircraft in ways I could never imagine simply blows me away,” says Jeff Herold, company founder. “Scheyden is the highest-quality, most functional and comfortable eyewear in the aviation market, which is why pilots whose lives depend on their equipment trust our brand above all others.

”

In honor of this new relationship, Super Dave has christened one of his daring air show maneuvers the “Scheyden Precision Point Roll Pass.” It requires exact timing and a master’s touch to execute properly, aligning with the brand’s “Demand Precision” slogan.



“The lenses are just bloody amazing, especially for flying because they just crisp everything up, they take the glare away from a gray day and make features sharp like you can’t believe,” says Super Dave, who earned his moniker due to harrowing aviation adventures, including as a teenager by safely landing a float plane that lost the control stick. “Jeff’s background with flying means he doesn’t take the typical approach to designing the glasses. I know that these are made for pilots, but they’re really perfect for any activity.

”

Designed and manufactured to exacting standards, Scheyden distortion-free lenses are hand-ground and polished. Made from the world’s finest materials, they feature a hydrophobic coating to repel water and perspiration, and several layers of magnesium hexafluoride to diffuse ambient light and protect pupils from harsh reflections. The lenses also include a scratch resistant finish and optional polarization. 


Available in a variety lens and frame combinations, category-specific highlights include the Revelry and Panorama Fixed Hybrid models that are heat-resistant and provide superior wrap for maximum sun protection. Additionally, hypoallergenic high nickel silver arms slip securely underneath headwear for lasting comfort.



In addition to pilots, the evolutionary sunglasses are also the choice of fishermen, car enthusiasts, and professional golfers. Scheyden Precision Eyewear is available at the company website, as well as a number of unique boutique eyewear retailers.

Scheyden launches 'Steam Gauge' watch

Scheyden launches 'Steam Gauge' watch

 

July 28, 2013

By Sarah Brown

 

For pilots who value a watch as a tool as much as a timepiece, Scheyden Precision Eyewear will debut the first model of its True Aviator line of watches at EAA AirVenture 2013.

Dubbed the Steam Gauge, the model evokes the standard instrument six-pack. It won’t display airspeed or attitude, but the watch’s three round gauges display time (of course), heading (with a liquid magnetic compass), and a digital IFR timer, in addition to a number of other features.

Scheyden founder Jeff Herold said he used to be “a Breitling guy,” but “as nice as the Breitlings are, I found myself only using it to tell time.” The Steam Gauge adds to that features such as an ATIS bezel, which allows pilots to record the identification letter of the weather broadcast without writing it, and the liquid compass—a feature Herold said is a nice feature for pilots even on the ground.

“How many times do you fly into a strange area, … you get out of the airplane, you get into town," and then you "don’t know where you are?” he said.

The Steam Gauge has a standard price of $2,992. On the main gauge, pilots can set a second time zone such as Zulu time. The lower gauge, a digital timer, can be used for timing instrument procedures or assisting with timed checklist items, according to Scheyden. Other features include a chronograph, alarm, countdown timer, water-resistance, glowing digits, and global airport identifiers. It is available in brushed stainless steel, “Stealth Black,” or “Swiss Gold.” Scheyden is donating one of the initial limited release watches to the Gathering of Eagles Gala auction Aug. 1.

Scheyden’s full range of polarized sunglasses will be showcased, all of which are hand-crafted from the world’s finest materials. Ideal for long days on the water, the brand’s scratch-resistant lenses cut through even the harshest glare and feature a hydrophobic coating to resist erosion from saltwater, sweat, sun-care product oils and fuel.
 
“As a pilot I set out to create the highest-quality, most comfortable eyewear in the aviation market and soon found that technology makes them the best fishing sunglasses too,” says company founder Jeff Herold. “By adding polarization, Scheyden’s elite performance is shared with members of the fishing and boating community who demand only the best from their optics.”
 
Available in a variety lens and frame combinations, category-specific highlights include the Revelry and Panorama Fixed Hybrid models that are heat-resistant and provide superior wrap for maximum sun protection. Additionally, hypoallergenic high nickel silver arms slip securely underneath headwear for lasting comfort.

Designed and manufactured to exacting standards, Scheyden eyewear is ideal for precision pursuits. In addition to pilots and fishermen, the evolutionary sunglasses are also the choice of car enthusiasts, and professional golfers on the PGA, LPGA and Champions Tours. Scheyden Precision Eyewear is available at the company website as well as better aviation and custom eyewear retailers nationwide.
