9 Base Curvature - The base curvature corresponds to the curve of the lens. The higher the number, the higher the curve. 6 base styles have a “flatter” look. 8-9 base curves hug closer to the face.
C-5™ Alloy - Five metal compounds are superheated to create this performance alloy that maintains durability, even in lightweight frame designs.
Unobtainium Grip - Thanks to Unobtainium, the frame actually grips better when you sweat. The textured Unobtainium ear and nose pads add comfort to your wearing experience.
Pro Tip - Are polarized sunglasses better? Are they worth the price?
In many cases, yes. All sunglasses reduce brightness and block some amount of harmful UV rays. However, only polarized sunglasses are scientifically constructed to eliminate glare. Not just reduce it, but eliminate it. Fully polarized sunglasses reduce eye strain and help you see better around water, snow, sand or any other reflective surroundings.
HD Polarized - By selectively filtering directional light, glare from roads, water, and snow is reduced greatly.
High Definition Optics® (HDO®) - Engineered for a clearer, sharper image with unrivaled impact resistance and 100% UV filtering.
Plutonite 100% UV Protection - Lightweight material offering comfort and protection against impact and ultraviolet radiation.
The impact-resistant material blocks 100% of all UVA, UVB, UVC blue light.
16 - 20% - A low VLT (Visual Light Transmitted) rating like this is great for sunny and bright lighting conditions.
VLT ratings range from 0 to about 90 percent with a lower number meaning less light passes through (darker tint); where as with a higher number - more light passes through (lighter tint).
