New for 2011, the Expert design are a very comfortable stylish pair of sport sunglasses - with a high specification.
- lightweight, wrap-around frame
- Frame made from a tough TR90 composite
- 3 x interchangeable lens sets for different light conditions
- Lenses have vent cut-outs for anti-fogging
- Adjustable nose clip
- Revo-style, titanium layered polarised red mirror lens provides superb optical definition
- Carry case, cleaning cloth and head / neck securing strap included as standard
Finished in a highly attractive matt black and orange colour scheme, the frames have rubberised tips for comfort. Being extremely light, and thanks to a slight flex that makes the glasses fit most sizes and shapes of head well, Expert are very comfortable to wear. The frame is made from TR90, a plastic composite material famous for being virtually bullet-proof and thus superior to the more common polycarbonate.
The Expert frame benefits from an adjustable rubber nose clip, which can be narrowed or widened to exactly fit the wearer's requirements.
Made from an extremely robust and shatterproof polycarbonate, all lenses bundled with the Expert are made to very high optical standards. Three sets of lenses are provided as standard, and these are as follows:
- Category 0, light-enhancing. For use on dull or cloudy days.
- Category 2, beige polarised. For use on fairly bright or changeable days.
- Category 3, red 'Frostech' polarised mirror, for use on bright / sunny days.
The Category 3 lens is packed with features. Apart from having a red mirror polarised finish, this lens set also has built-in titanium layers that block up to 97% of the Infra red part of the spectrum, thus increasing visual clarity and definition, whilst protecting the wearer's eyes when used at altitude (where IR is at its most severe). All lenses supplied with Expert are anti-scratch coated, and decentred, which means the possible distorting effects of placing a curved lens in front of your eyes are calibrated out at the manufacturing stage.
Expert are supplied with a lint-free cleaning cloth, head / neck securing strap and carry case as standard. The case has internal pouches for storing the extra lenses, plus a belt fixing catch and loops, making for easy access to your sunglasses when you need them in a hurry.
All Rapid Eyewear sunglasses conform to EN1836 and Z80.3 regulations for sunglasses. In order to comply with the US regulations, a sample from every batch is subjected to a drop-test (impact test) at the manufacturing stage, to ensure their strength. Expert offer 100% UVA / UVB protection, and also 97% infrared protection with the Category 3 lens fitted.
Expert are highly suited to most sports and leisure uses, including cricket, tennis, driving (including night driving), water sports, sailing, skiing / winter sports etc. They are also included in our RC Modelglasses range of products.
