Spy Ken Block Series Happily Returns With Six Styles For All Smiles

SPY® is happy to introduce its 2014 Ken Block Series—a collection of frames inspired by the bold patterns and highly recognizable color pallet of Ken’s 2014 livery. Overhauled for maximum smiles per hour, the collection arrives with SPY’s Happy Lens™ in several of SPY’s most popular styles—the Discord, Cyrus, Flynn, Dirk and Logan—in addition to Ken’s original SPY piece, the Helm. “I’m stoked on my expanded 2014 SPY Series,” says SPY athlete Ken Block. “I love the Helm—especially since I had a hand in shaping the design of the frame—but I wanted to see if SPY could take the look of my 2014 team livery and spread it across different frames so that my fans could all rock a style that worked best for them. The crew over at SPY was able to do some amazing graphic layouts on each of these frames to make them look really fresh while still being easily recognizable as one of my signature items. I might be slightly biased, but I think this is my best collection yet with SPY.” Dropping an assortment of custom crafted graphic treatments onto each piece to create six unique frames, the 2014 Ken Block Series lays out grey digital stripes and bright blue...
