Details

Inspired by a Ryders classic, the Nelson is a taller and higher-tech version of the ever-popular Hillroy. Despite its handsome looks, it is not all about style. Thanks to its big lenses along with its hydrophilic nose pads and temple tips, when it comes to performance, it can stand toe-to-toe with much sportier-looking eyewear.

Polarized for Devices antiFOG – Reduce Glare Without Compromises + antiFOG

Ryders Polarized for Devices antiFOG™ has been developed specifically for road cyclists. In contrast, traditional polarized lenses can hide slippery surfaces, black out LCD screens on cycling computers, and produce undesirable optical anomalies that alter depth perception on features like sewer covers, windshields and road patches. Some road cyclists aren’t bothered by these side effects, but others find them to be very problematic. It's for this reason that we've developed our Polarized for Devices antiFOG™ lens—a lens that's fine-tuned to give road cyclists the benefits of polarized technology without the compromises, allowing it to filter out the blinding part of the glare without hiding a slippery surface or blacking out an LCD screen. It even minimizes optical anomalies and utilizes our antiFOG and hydrophobic coatings.

UV400

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.

Antifog

antiFOG

It really doesn't matter how many cutting-edge technologies are included in a lens, if it fogs up it's all for naught. RYDERS high-quality antiFOG will stave off condensation so you can enjoy all of the other benefits of the lens without the hazardous distraction of fog.

Hydrophobic

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.

Impact Resistant

Impact Resistant

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.

Optically Correct

Optically Correct

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.

Scratch-Resistant Coating

Scratch-Resistant Coating

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.

Grilamid TR90

Grilamid TR90

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 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.
