Wiley - X brand sunglasses are engineered with military forces, law enforcement and serious sporting enthusiasts in mind; anyone who might be in a situation where high velocity debris could be a factor. That's why every pair of Wiley - X glasses pass the rigorous high speed and high mass safety standards for US occupational safety codes (ANSI Z87.1 - 2003) and many pairs also pass the ballistic safety standards put forth by the US military for their soldiers in the field. These glasses are virtually indestructible, built with thick selenite polycarbonate lenses(some up to 3 mm in thickness) and triloid nylon frames that can bend but not break. These glasses are depended upon by soldiers and policemen in the most dangerous of situations.
Safety is very important, but these glasses also have design in mind. You'll find the Street series offer edgy, aerodynamic and Italian - inspired frames that completely hide the safety function from the general public as you're out on your motorcycle. This is especially true in the Wiley - X women's glasses. There's no sign that those are safety glasses. Wear them driving or on the beach, no one will know that you're eyes are protected behind that high engineered technology.
Lens technology is amazing. Wiley - X lenses are built with eight layers that factor in all the needs for a truly exceptional pair of shades. They are 100 % UV blockers, come with hard shell scratch resistance, and some lenses include polarization, mirrored exteriors, or light adjusting qualities. Wiley - X knows that sometimes your operations are going to take place in low light conditions, which is why they offer a range of lenses from clear (89 % light transmission) to only 10 % light transmission and some styles actually offer interchangeable lenses.
Since Wiley - X is built on ballistic eye protection, they have a line of Black Ops sunglasses inspired by covert operations. Intended for use by high level military personnel, law enforcement and only the most serious sporting enthusiasts, these glasses have the highest quality ballistic safety and dark, non reflecting frames and lenses possible, so that they will not hinder your shadowy mission. The Climate Control also have high speed, dangerous situations in mind. These glasses are almost goggles, offering a removable facial seal that fits comfortably right to your face, keeping in the eye's moisture while keeping out debris, wind, water and peripheral light. They also come with removable T-Peg elastic bands to secure your sunglasses to your face.
