Authentic Brands-owned Spyder currently offers a range of products dedicated to the ski and performance categories, and will now launch into the eyewear category as part of the agreement.

The first performance lifestyle brand within Altair’s portfolio, the company will have access to the exclusive design, development, production and distribution of ophthalmic eyewear, sunglasses and ski goggles marketed and sold under the Spyder brand name.

"Spyder is a dynamic addition to our Altair Eyewear brand portfolio," said Nicola Zotta, president and CEO of Marchon Eyewear, Inc, Altair’s parent company.

"We were strategically seeking a performance lifestyle brand of this caliber for Altair to give us opportunities for sun and optical eyewear as well as ski goggles, and we are thrilled to be extending our partnership with ABG and their exceptional roster of brands."

The new eyewear collection will be integrated into Spyder’s current range of ski, fitness and lifestyle apparel and accessories for men, women and children.

The line is set to be distributed in optical chains and specialty retailers worldwide, as well as through independent eye care practices and online at spyder.com and eyeconic.com.

The collection will make its debut in March of 2020 at Vision Expo East in New York City.
