A lightweight model with adjustable hydrophilic nose pads and co-injected temple tips. Available in all of our premium lens technologies.
POLAR-PHOTO TECHNOLOGY: It’s a Polarized lens so it eliminates glare. It’s also a Photochromic lens, meaning it lightens and darkens automatically to suit the light conditions. These two lens technologies offer the greatest advantages, so we’ve packed them into one. Our PolarPhoto 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 PolarPhoto 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. If sunlight intensity gradually changes, the lenses will gradually change with it. If the intensity suddenly drops off, the lenses will start to change instantly but the adjustment from dark to light is slightly slower than the rapid adjustment from light to dark. Where there is light there is always glare. It’s caused when light hits a surface, becomes concentrated, then reflects into your eyes. Polar-photo lenses eliminate glare from horizontal surfaces [roads, water, ice, snow, etc.] allowing details to show through, drastically reducing eye strain.
LENS TINT: Brown: designed for medium to very bright, glaring light, eliminates glare, significantly increasing definition and depth perception, automatically adjusts from light to dark and vice versa to suit light conditions, and darkens colours and slightly increases contrast by reducing blue hues. While the visible light transmisssion is 29% – 8%, category 2 – 4 and UV protection is 100% UVA, UVB, UVC and harmful blue light to 400nm.
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.
