Dragon Introduces Owen Wright Signature Glass

| posted on August 01, 2011

Carlsbad, CA (August 1, 2011) – Dragon and surfing sensation, Owen Wright have teamed up to create a signature sunglass based on Dragon’s number one selling frame, The Jam. Drawing inspirations from back home in Australia and growing up as a kid, Owen wanted to design something that reminded him of summer’s in Australia.

“I wanted to create something that is me….and what I do beyond surfing,” says Owen. “The ocean has been such a big part of my life. I basically grew up in it-swimming, fishing, and snorkeling reefs. When you put these sunnies on you will feel like you’re in the ocean.”

Technical features of The Jam include, a Grilamid Frame Material, 6 Base Polycarbonate Lens, 5 Barrel Stainless Steel Hinges and 100% UV protection.

Owen also shares the spotlight with 2x World Champ Mick Fanning, ASP standouts Taylor Knox and Ace Buchan, style icon Rob Machado, 2x US Open Champ Brett Simpson, youth assassin Evan Geiselman, and big-wave standouts Shane Dorian and Reef McIntosh.
