Italian Style Cycling Accessories from
Sunglasses for active people
The frame is made of Grilamid™ TR90: light, shock resistant, safe and elastic (virtually unbreakable). The nose-pad (made of dual compound hypoallergenic material for the maximum comfort) can be adjusted thus to find the best position of the sunglass on your own nose. Three sets of easily interchangeable lenses packed in a very nice shock-resistant case: smoke mirrored decentred anti-scratch, red revo or blue iridium (depending on the model) and clear anti-fog. Feature of the Apache is its RX insert included in the case. The cyclist who has prescription problems simply has to bring the RX insert to an optician and this last will put in the correct RX lenses. It is also possible to remove the RX insert out of the sunglass and use it the way it is with ordinary contact lenses. Aggressive and modern look with wrap-around geometry. Weight: only 25 grams.
I had my Bolle, Smith and Oakley-wearing friends try them all on and give me their comparison opinions. The "clarity" of the lens is very comparable. The fit of the glasses is also similarly comfortable. If one of our models doesn't fit, we can exchange it for another, with 100% product credit. Except for the nose piece of the Top Gun model, none of the nose or ear pieces are 'user-adjustable'. An optometrist has special equipment for heating the plastic and making bends to fit a person's head, but this should not be attempted yourself. Choose from one of many items we have in stock; Air Force One, F104, Hercules, Mig Prescription, Mirage, Phantom, Tomcat, Topgun, Hercules, or Starfighter.
All of our sunglasses offer 100% UVA and UVB protection. Glasses with interchangeable lenses have been tested by accredited agencies and meet the ANSI Z80.3 standard for UV safety and quality. They also comply with the European quality standards (EEC Law 86/686) and meet European Norm 1836/1997. The Z80.3 standard tests for UV absorption at different frequencies of light. UVA is from 315-380nm and UVB from 290-315nm, which is why you often see the UV400 symbol now, meaning that the lens absorbs UV light under 400 nano meters. The Z80.3 standard also tests for color blockage of traffic signals: we passed. These glasses also passed the test for extended exposure to UV, meaning they provide the same UV protection under prolonged (all-day) use in intense sun.
All of the interchangeable lenses are made of polycarbonate shatterproof plastic and meet the ANSI Z87.1 standard for eye protection from flying objects. Which means you can wear these when shooting, using power tools, on job sites or gardening. These glasses are especially well suited to cycling, motorcycle riding, golf, tennis and triathlon. Paintball shooters should always wear eye protection with ANSI ratings. Goggles are best for this, but a wrap around sunglass would also give some protection.
