WHEN THE SUNLIGHT CHANGES, THE TINT CHANGES.
When the sunlight changes, the tint changes. The science behind it is complicated but the result is as simple as that. Each Photochromic lens contains millions of organic molecules that react to UV light. When exposed, the molecules change shape, absorbing light and making the lens darker. When there is less UV light, the opposite reaction takes place and the lens tint becomes lighter. Like all of our lenses, our Photochromics are impact resistant and optically correct with 100% UVA, UVB, UVC protection.
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
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.
