RUDY PROJECT TECHNOLOGY, PERFORMANCE AND PROTECTION FOR AUDI Q8 SAILING TEAM

Technology, performance and protection: Rudy Project goes aboard the TP 52 Italian Audi Q8, the regatta boat committed to the most difficult and technical regatta circuit in the world, the Audi MedCup.

Once again the Audi regatta machine is transformed into a true laboratory for the technological development of materials and products developed by the partners of the Audi Sailing Team powered by Q8.

Zyon Sailing is the new Rudy Project eyewear that distinguishes itself for its specificity to sailing and those who practices either as a regatta competitor or simply as an enthusiast: photochromatic and polarized ImpactX lenses, lifetime guaranteed indestructibility, ultralight Grilamid frames, temple tips adjustable 360 degrees and ergonomic Ergo 3 max nosepiece for maximum comfort. In addition, Zyon Sailing is created with metal components in stainless steel to prevent corrosion from salt, is equipped with an adjustable floating retainer that helps to keep the eyewear firmly fastened even during the most extreme movements and ensures that the sunglasses float in the event that they fall into the sea. By using the practical patented easy-in-easy-out system, Rudy Project Zyon Sailing sunglasses can be equipped with an optical insert clip-on, applicable by snapping it on behind the sun lenses, for all those who wear graduated lenses. Zyon Sailing limited edition for Audi Q8 is created in the exclusive silver grey color visible on the Audi Q8 hull and shown on the stem of the team's logo.

For Simone Barbazza, Rudy Project marketing director---- "The partnership with the Audi Sailing Team powered by Q8 is a new step forward for Rudy Project within the heart of this top sport alongside its greatest athletes. For us, sailing is one of the most difficult disciplines to translate as far as our products' technological level is concerned due to the many variables that it poses in terms of performance requirements and the specific needs of those who practice it; for this reason being able to develop and create a product like Zyon Sailing has been an exciting challenge that is not finished and is actually ongoing through new phases of research and experimentation together with Riccardo Simoneschi's crew."

"We are proud to have been chosen by Rudy Project as their test team and it is a reason for pride to have a new Italian partner at our side and aboard the Audi Q8," says Audi Q8 team leader Riccardo Simoneschi, "We are providing a series of indications to Rudy Project's engineers for the development of their technology and it is a real pleasure to observe up close the professionalism, precision and intense study that is behind this completely Italian technology that makes Rudy Project an absolute point of reference in our sport and an essential and indispensable element for our crew."
