Curvature

4 Base Curvature - The base curvature corresponds to the curve of the lens. The higher the number, the higher the curve. 4 base styles have a “flatter” look. 6-9 base curves hug closer to the face.

Frame Material

eVolve Material - For more than 40 years Smith has been a steward of the outdoors. Great days in the water, dirt, and snow are made better when we protect the environment as well. By utilizing a new material called Rilsan Clear, they are creating lightweight, durable, and fully transparent sunglass frames that are over 53% bio-based.

Lens Tech

Smith Polarization - Smith precisely aligns the polarized visual layer inside the lenses to filter out 99.9% of this “visual static” for a finely tuned, glare-free view of the action.

Hydroleophobic Coating - This coating repels moisture, grease and grime. A barrier between your lenses and the world. Water will bead up and dispense without streaking. Smudges from fingerprints are wiped clean easily.

Anti-Reflective Coating - Vacuum applied Anti-Reflective (A/R) coatings on the back side of the lens will eliminate bothersome sidelight reflections.

Frame Measurements (mm)

These measurements include the width of the lens, the width of the bridge and the width of the arms/temples.

Extra Info

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.

VLT Rating

11 - 15% - A low VLT (Visual Light Transmitted) rating like this is perfect 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).
