An adaptation of the standard aviator, the X1 offers a squared shape that fits a range of faces. As with all of our metal frames, the X1 features adjustable nose pads and extra-durable spring hinges.

Standard Grey Gradient with Silver Flash
Premium coatings and finely tuned tints are just our starting point.
Impact resistant and optically correct, these lenses provide 100% protection from UVA, UVB and UVC rays as well as harmful, high energy light to 400nm. As if that’s not enough, they also have premium hydrophobic and scratch-resistant coatings. This is the standard from which we build all of our more technical lenses, so every Ryders lens has the same technology at its core and the highest standard of quality.
100% UV400 Protection
All of our lenses block 100% of UVA, UVB, and UVC rays and harmful, high energy light to 400nm. These rays are a leading cause of cataracts, skin cancer and wrinkles around the eyes—all great reasons to block them out.
Hydrophobic + Oleophobic Coating
An altogether misleading name, this coating isn't nearly as scared of water as water is of the coating. In fact, water runs away at first contact, leaving clear lines of sight that are free from droplets and water marks. The Oleophobic characteristics repel dirt and grease, making the lenses very easy to clean.
All of our lenses are impact resistant, meaning they resist breaking up into dangerous little shards when impacted. If astronauts trust this material to keep their heads from exploding while on a 17,000 mph space walk, you’ll have nothing to worry about on your adventures, no matter how fast you’re going.
All of our lenses are made by injecting molten polycarbonate into a mold that is specially formed to eliminate distortion. This process makes the lenses optically correct (also referred to as decentred), increasing long-term comfort and minimizing eye fatigue.
We apply a scratch-resistant coating to all of our lenses. Though this process makes the surface of the lens considerably harder than the base lens material, it’s impossible to make the lenses completely scratch proof (short of making them from diamonds) so please care for them properly as they may still scratch under certain conditions.
Adjustable Nose Pads
Adjustable nose pads allow you to customize the fit of your eyewear for comfort and stability. This component is also used for fine-tuning the amount of airflow behind the lens to keep your face cool and combat fogging.
Standing for 18% Nickel-Silver, N/S18 is the lightweight, durable and extremely corrosion-resistant alloy we use for all of our metal frames. A combination of nickel, zinc and copper, N/S18 gets its high strength from the high concentration of nickel. As a precaution for those who may be sensitive to some metals, we apply a hypoallergenic polymer coating to all of our metal frames.
