The most stylish, sport semi-rim out there, the Seventh has a flat top to give it a more casual appearance than its more aggressive-looking peers. And it does this without sacrificing the performance benefits that make semi rims so popular for athletic endeavours. In fact, the Seventh performs better than many frames out there because of its fully-adjustable, hydrophilic nose pads and temple tips that allow you to custom fit the frame to suit your face, your helmet and the desired amount of airflow behind the lens.
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.
SHATTERPROOF: All of Ryders' lenses are shatterproof, meaning they won’t break up into dangerous little shards when impacted. An extremely strong impact may damage the lens, but it will never shatter. 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 applys 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.
TR90 SWITZERLAND: A Swiss technology, this thermoplastic is the material used in all of Ryders' sunglasses (with the exception of the metal frames). Its extreme flexibility, durability and light weight make it the perfect material for performance eyewear.
ADJUSTABLE NOSE PADS + TEMPLE TIPS Adjustable nose pads and temple tips allow you to customize the fit of your eyewear for comfort and stability. These components are also used for fine-tuning the amount of airflow behind the lens to keep your face cool and combat fogging.
HYDROPHILIC NOSE PADS + TEMPLE TIPS Hydrophilic [anti-slip] nose pads are an important feature to look for in performance eyewear. Hydrophilic temple tips give that extra little bit of grip that can come in handy in many situations. 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.
