Ryders Eyewear: Athlete Tested

We worked with Ryders Eyewear to write and produce this 2-part series featuring two of their best known athletes and product testers: Jay Hoots, and Olympian Andreas Hestler. 

"Each pair of RYDERS sunglasses is developed through a series of stringent tests, both on the mountain and in the lab. This short video features never-seen-before footage of our athlete testing lab, highlighting freeride legend Jay Hoots."

"We at RYDERS demand the best. When we want a new pair of sunglasses tested, we call on our team of world class athletes, like Olympian and all-around bad-ass Andreas Hestler. His aggressive riding style is perfect to test out our eyewear. This video features Dre in action, in our top-secret testing facilities."
