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.
Developed over a period of 12 years, NXT is an Essilor Sun Solution proprietary performance polymer which was originally developed for fighter jet canopies and the windshields of military helicopters. When cast as a lens it provides extreme impact resistance and superior optics.
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.
With its fast-acting, wide-range photochromic technology, the VARIA lens responds very quickly and reliably, no matter what the temperature. In addition, it actually changes the colour of the lenses throughout their range instead of simply getting lighter or darker. This allows them to shift from a tint that has advantages in the dark, to a different, more suitable tone when conditions are bright.
Adjustable Nose Pads + Temple Tips
Adjustable nose pads and temple tips allow you to customize the fit of your eyewear for comfort and stability. These components are also used for fine-tuning the amount of airflow behind the lens to keep your face cool and combat fogging.
A Swiss technology, this incredible thermoplastic is the material used in all of our sunglasses (with the exception of our metal frames). Its extreme flexibility, durability and light weight make it the perfect material for performance eyewear.
Hydrophilic Nose Pads + Temple Tips
Hydrophilic [anti-slip] nose pads are an important feature to look for in performance eyewear. Hydrophilic temple tips give that extra little bit of grip that can come in handy in many situations. The material we use to make these features is so effective that it actually grips better when it’s wet — exactly when it’s needed.
