At Wiley X, we produce our lenses using the precise amount of dyes in the manufacturing process eliminating eye fatigue and strain. Our lenses block 100% UV rays, are made of a shatterproof, selenite polycarbonate, and far exceed ANSI Z87.1 and Z80.3 safety standards. We then formulate and die cut each lens to the maximum density and thickness creating one of the strongest lenses available, while still maintaining distortion free clarity. These features, combined with a wide selection of performance enhancing tints, work together to provide the ultimate in eye protection without optical compromise.
Wiley X is redefining color by introducing our all-new, patented Captivate™ technology. Captivate™ lenses filter out ambiguous light, increasing clarity and definition with vibrant contrast and vivid detail. Offered in multiple lens colors to provide situation-specific benefits in variable light conditions. Captivate™ lenses block UV/HEV rays and meet ANSI Z87.1 and EN.166 safety standards for unparalleled protection.
Our proprietary Filter 8™ polarized lens technology filters light to reduce glare and block reflective light. It includes two Slick™ hydrophobic coatings, two Selenite™ polycarbonate lenses, two T-Shell™ scratch-resistant layers, one Violet 4™ anti-reflective coating, and a Filter 8™ polarized film layer that creates 100% polarization and gives you 100% UV protection.
|Smoke Grey/Filter 8 Polarized Gray Lenses: Great for general purpose use. These lenses will provide maximum glare reduction without distorting colors. Ideal for most activities and sports where glare is a major factor. Light transmission: 15 to 20% depending on the style. 12% WX Abby, 11% Polarized.|
|LA (Light Adjusting Smoke Grey Lenses: Darken on bright sunny days to shield the eyes from harmful ultraviolet rays. On overcast days or at night, the lenses adjust to clear for perfect optical clarity. Now you don't have to stop to interchange lenses. This new technology is also produced using shatterproof polycarbonate. This is much safer than the old photochromic lens technology that use glass or CR-39, as it can shatter if struck by a rock while riding. We've also incorporated our Emerald 4™ anti-reflective coatings to eliminate back-lit glare from the sun truly giving the wearer the most functional riding lens available. Light Transmission 85% to 17% (in sunlight) Works outdoors only, not in a car.|
