Similar to a baroque symphony featuring a celebrity DJ, the Hillroy is a classic design with modern upgrades. Despite its casual appearance the Hillroy comes equipped with anti-slip nose pads and shatterproof lenses, so you can still wear them on the bike.
UV PROTECTION: All of Ryders' lenses block 100% of UVA, UVB, and UVC rays, and harmful blue light to 400nm. These harmful rays are a leading cause of cataracts, skin cancer and wrinkles around the eyes—all great reasons to block them out. HYDROPHOBIC + OLEOPHOBIC COATING:An altogether misleading name, this coating isn't nearly as scared of water as water is of the coating. In fact, water runs away at first contact, leaving clear lines of sight that are free from droplets and water marks. The Oleophobic characteristics repel dirt and grease, making the lenses very easy to clean.
IMPACT RESISTANT: All of Ryders' lenses are impact resistant, meaning they resist breaking up into dangerous little shards when impacted. If astronauts trust this material to keep their heads from exploding while on a 17,000 mph space walk, you’ll have nothing to worry about on your adventures, no matter how fast you’re going.
OPTICALLY CORRECT: The lenses in all of Ryders' sunglasses are made by injecting molten polycarbonate into a mold that is specially shaped to eliminate distortion. This process makes the lenses optically correct, increasing comfort and minimizing eye fatigue. SCRATCH-RESISTANT COATING: Ryders apply a scratch-resistant coating to all of their lenses. Though this process makes the surface of the lens considerably harder than the base lens material, it’s impossible to make the lenses completely scratch proof (short of making them from diamonds) so please care for them properly as they may still scratch under certain conditions.
GRILAMID TR90 A Swiss technology, this incredible thermoplastic is the material used in all of our sunglasses (with the exception of our metal frames). Its extreme flexibility, durability and light weight make it the perfect material for performance eyewear.
HYDROPHILIC NOSE PADS Hydrophilic [anti-slip] nose pads are an important feature to look for in performance eyewear. The material we use to make these features is so effective that it actually grips better when it’s wet—exactly when it’s needed.
