SUNGLASS LENS TECHNOLOGY
LENSES TO BE STOKED ABOUT
NATIVE uses the world’s best impact-resistant, premium polarized lenses. Our lenses reveal details that hide beneath the surface, and create a color-rich experience that is more descriptive than the naked eye.
99% POLARIZATION EFFICIENCY
The sun’s light waves are reflected off every surface creating intense glare. Our lenses are injected (not bent!) with a durable polarization film that acts as a filter for your eyes.
Ophthalmic Grade Polycarbonate
Raw materials provide purity and clarity.
Proprietary Hard Coating
Advanced abrasion resistance and suitability as a surface for mirror coatings.
Decentered, injection-molded lenses for visual clarity.
Oleophobic & Hydrophobic Coating
Resists water, dust, dirt, oil and fingerprints while preserving the appearance of the lens against wear and tear. This makes it easy to maintain during sport activities.
Protection against Potentially harmful Blue Light
Lenses block more than 90% of potentially harmful* High Energy Visible (Blue Light) Rays*.
100% UV Protection (up to 400nm)
Protects against all UV rays to defend your vision against long-term sun exposure. Our premium lenses block up to 4X more infrared light than regular polarized lenses.
*Harmful HEV blue light refers to the 415-455 nanometer range of the visible light spectrum. The percentage represents the approximate amount of blue light blocked in this range.
EVERY LIGHT. EVERY CONDITION.
VLT (visible light transmittance) is a measurement of how much visible light is allowed through the lens. A lower VLT means the lens is better suited to brighter/sunnier conditions, while a higher VLT is best suited to stormier or overcast conditions with less light.
GRAY BASE LENSESRelief from extreme sun; Great for snow and water sports.
More than 90% of blue light is absorbed.
BROWN BASE LENSESReveal vivid contrast and detail; great for trail sports.
More than 96% of blue light is absorbed.
SPORTFLEX™See deeper in low-light conditions; great for early mornings and cloudy days.
HARD TO DESTROY. EFFORTLESS TO WEAR.
Made of Sunshine, Earth and Hard work.
FRAMES THAT ARE BIO-BASED
- Bio-Based Plant Resin
This high-performance material is extremely lightweight, yet durable enough to withstand high-velocity collisions and temperature extremes.
FRAMES THAT STAY IN PLACE
- Hypoallergenic CHUSHINOL™ Temple Tips and Nose Pads
This material incorporates a nonslip grip right into the frame construction to keep your sunglasses in place while you are getting after it. The sweatier you get, the more CUSHINOL holds on. Key grip areas include the nose pads, temple tips and arms.
FRAMES THAT ARE LIGHTWEIGHT
- Trilaminate Construction
Distinct layers bond into a multi-layered finish, making our sunglasses the leader in functional, outdoor style. Trilaminate is where acetate style meets the lightweight strength of nylon.
FRAMES THAT ARE COOL (LITERALLY)
- Integrated Venting
- Side Venting
The proprietary composition of Cushinol™ creates a nonslip grip that is seamlessly incorporated right into the frame construction at the nose pads, temple tips and arms, which keeps your sunglasses in place during athletic activity. Cushinol™ is also used in the Mastoid Temple Grip™, a design feature that the temple ends hug the mastoid bone (behind your ears) to allow for a secure and comfortable fit.
