POLYCARBONATE LENS MATERIAL
Polycarbonate is the extraordinarily durable thermoplastic that’s used in bulletproof glass, riot shields and astronaut helmets. It’s the ideal material for performance eyewear because of its high impact resistance, inherent UV protection and light weight. All of our lenses are made of polycarbonate.
All of our lenses block 100% of UVA, UVB, and UVC rays, and harmful blue light to 400nm. These harmful rays are a leading cause of cataracts, skin cancer and wrinkles around the eyes—all great reasons to block them out.
FOG-RESISTANT DOUBLE LENS
A double lens is the ultimate defense against fog on the inside of the lens. With a single lens, if the air on the front of the lens is cool enough to make the lens a lower temperature than the air on the inside of the goggle, you have a perfect recipe for fogging. With a double lens, there’s a gap between the lenses so the inside lens — which is in contact with the warmer air — is much less likely to be cooled by the cold air flowing over the front of the outside lens. In this situation, the vapour content of the air doesn’t have a chance to condense, therefore annoying fog problems are avoided.
All of our lenses are shatterproof, meaning they won’t break up into dangerous little shards when impacted. An extremely strong impact may damage the lens, but it will never shatter. 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.
Especially beneficial in cold conditions, this coating helps to prevent condensation on the inside of the lens.
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.
