Developed in partnership with GranFondo Canada and based on input from racers, we have proudly introduced this model to the cycling world.
PHOTOCHROMIC TECHNOLOGY: Light conditions are constantly changing. Time of day, weather, or simply a change in location or direction of travel will alter the intensity of the sunlight that’s reaching your eyes. Photochromic lenses automatically adjust to suit the amount of sunlight at any given time. Our Photochromic lenses are made using an injection process that ensures they’re optically correct, decreasing eye fatigue and increasing comfort. At all tint levels — from the lightest to the darkest — RYDERS Photochromic lenses provide protection against 100% UVA, UVB, UVC and harmful blue light to 400nm. When exposed to sunlight, the lenses will start to darken instantly***. The time they take to reach maximum darkness depends on a number of factors including the intensity of sunlight and air temperature. Generally speaking, the adjustment from light to dark is quite rapid. The adjustment from dark to light will begin instantly but occur more gradually.
LENS TINT: Melanin Brown: designed for low to very bright light, automatically adjusts from light to dark and vice versa to suit light conditions,and darkens colours and drastically increases contrast by eliminating blue hues. While the visible light transmission is 43%—8%, the UV and Blue protection are 100%.
TR90 SWITZERLAND: A Swiss technology, this 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.
Scratch Resistant Coating
Polycarbonate Lens Material
Optically Correct: Eliminates lens distortion
***It’s important to note that most car windshields block the UV light that’s needed for the Photochromic reaction to take place. For this reason, you should not expect the tint of the lenses to darken while driving in bright conditions.
