GIA Polarized

Remember how surprised you were when you discovered that your best friend was actually an android that was using you as a pawn in their plot for world domination? Well this stylish, minimalist design makes the GIA’s hidden sporty features equally as surprising.

Polarized Technology
 
ELIMINATE GLARE AND INCREASE DEFINITION

Where there is light there is always glare. It’s caused when light hits a surface, becomes concentrated, then reflects into your eyes. Polarized lenses eliminate glare from horizontal surfaces [roads, water, ice, snow, etc.] allowing details to show through, drastically reducing eye strain.

Our Polarized lenses are made using an injection process that ensures they’re optically correct, decreasing eye fatigue and increasing comfort. As with all of our lenses, RYDERS Polarized lenses provide protection against 100% UVA, UVB, UVC and harmful blue light to 400nm.

Lens Tint
 
POLARIZED GREEN


LIGHT CONDITIONS: designed for bright to very bright, glaring light

POLARIZING EFFECT: eliminates glare, significantly increasing definition and depth perception

COLOUR EFFECT: darkens colours and slightly increases contrast

VISIBLE LIGHT TRANSMISSION: 13%, category 3

UV PROTECTION: 100% UVA, UVB, UVC and harmful blue light to 400nm

Lens Material
 
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.

 
UV PROTECTION

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.

 
SHATTERPROOF

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.

 
OPTICALLY CORRECT

The lenses in all of our sunglasses are made by injecting molten polycarbonate into a mold that is specially shaped to eliminate distortion. This process makes the lenses optically correct, increasing comfort and minimizing eye fatigue.

 
SCRATCH-RESISTANT COATING

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.

 
HYDROPHOBIC 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.

Frame Materials
 
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.
