LENS ANGLE ADJUSTER

Extensive research proves that human eyes tend to point slightly downwards. Ordinary eyewear is designed for daily usage and therefore designed for downward looking eyes. However, people have to look upwards when they ride the bike, especially on a racing bike. Shimano created a special lens angle adjuster which makes it possible to adjust your eyewear to an ideal fit in all situations. The lens angle adjuster has 5 fixed angle-positions; +8 degrees for upward, 0 degrees and -8 degrees for downwards. This enables perfect vision, everywhere you go.

LENS TECHNOLOGY

During the design process of our eyewear Shimano took great care in finding the perfect lenses. They are all made of the first class Polycarbonate material. It has superior high-impact resistance and can resist very low to high temperatures. Furthermore it is extremely lightweight, has the Shimano's full UV-400 protection, anti-scratch and anti-fog coating. With these lenses a clear view under all conditions is absolutely guaranteed.

 

 

 

 

 

 

POLARIZED LENS

Polarized lenses reduce glare and reflections from various objects, such as pavement, water, and glass. They ensure a clear view with excellent distance perception. The lenses' visible-light transmittance is set at 13%, making them ideal for riding in clear weather. Polarized lenses also make it easier to see what car drivers are doing behind the wheel.

PHOTOCHROMIC LENS

Photochromic lenses change color when exposed to UV light. When the surroundings are dark, the lenses are very lightly tinted - almost clear. When it brightens up, the lenses turn a darker hue. Changing from the lightest hue to the darkest takes 8 seconds; from darkest to lightest takes 35 seconds.

As there's no need to stop mid-ride to switch lenses, photochromic lenses are great to use in fickle light conditions. Shimano eyewear is designed with a UV transmittance of 17% to 85% - an optimal range for cycling.

 

 

HYDROPHOBIC COATING

This lens coating repels water and grime, making it easier to wipe the lenses clean.
