Ryders Nelson Sunglasses with Polarized Lens - 2021
Inspired by a RYDERS classic, the Nelson is a taller and higher-tech version of the ever-popular Hillroy. Despite its handsome looks, it’s 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.
ELIMINATE REFLECTED GLARE AND SHARPEN DETAILS.
Eliminate glare and ambient haze, drastically enhancing definition and allowing you to see through reflections. Our Polarized lenses are injected, not laminated, eliminating the need for adhesives and other imperfections that would otherwise affect clarity. Each lens has a hydrophobic and scratch-resistant finish along with our premium Anti-Reflective coating on the back. Like all of our lenses, our Polarized lenses 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 them from diamonds) so please care for them properly as they may still scratch under certain conditions.
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.
