Wiley-X Sunglasses and Goggles Product Information
Style and Safety Anytime, Anywhere:

Not to mention, flame resistant materials. Wiley-X: The only premium performance sunwear manufacturer whose entire line is ANSI safety rated.
ANSI High Mass Impact Test:
Wiley-X frames and lenses must withstand the weight of a 1.1lb pointed projectile dropped from a height of 50". That pretty much ensures they'll stand up to anything.
ANSI High Velocity Impact/VO Ballistic Tests:
Frames and lenses must withstand the impact of a .25 inch diameter steel ball fired at 150 fps (ANSI) or .15 projectiles fired at 640-660 fps (spectacle VO Ballistic). Goggles must withstand .22 projectiles fired at a rate of 550-560 fps. This ensures lenses and frames are indestructible.

Beauty meets beast is the only way to clearly define this line. We've meshed our virtually unbreakable TR-90, contoured sports frame, with a soothing, 8 layer, impact resistant, polarized lens.

Attached the included sunglass strap through T-Peg™ docking and wear the product loose or tight depending on the activity. Several styles in the active sport series utilize our proprietary Ultra Foam™ seal so if your fishing, sailing or boating your eyes can take advantage of a clean, protected zone of perfect, unaffected vision.

Take advantage of your competition with the latest in golf technology. Wiley-X Golf Eyewear was designed to heighten visual acuity and enhance colors, making vision sharper, offering high resolution. All Wiley-X lenses provide 100% UV protection and are die-cut to eliminate the distortion found in the competition. Made from the finest shatterproof Selenite Polycarbonate, our lenses are produced using the precise amount of dyes in the manufacturing process so as not to make them too dark or too light in color. Many sunglasses manufacturers produce their lenses too dark or too light in color. Many sunglass manufacturers produce their lenses too dark in color which cause severe reflection off the wearers face onto the inside of the sunglass lens. Lenses that are too dark make the pupils enlarge allowing more of the reflected light in, producing eye fatigue and strain. Wiley-X Golf eyewear can be worn for an extended period of time allowing you to concentrate more on your golf game and the curvatures of the green.
Climate Control Series

Multiple packages give you the option of different lens combinations in changing light and weather conditions. Using Socket™ technology, the frames are built to surround the eye orbits, preventing wind, debris, and shadows from disturbing your field of vision. Each frame is designed to cut wind and eliminate backlit glare. Our unique Slot™ design forms the interchangeable lens system, providing custom grooves in the frame, making the interchanging of lenses hassle free.
