Gill Racing Sunglasses Black (DG9472BLK)

Gill Racing Sunglasses Black (DG9472BLK)

Gill Racing Sunglasses9472All Gill sunglasses are floatable, so if you drop them, all is not lost. They feature hydrophobic and eleophobic coatings to repel and shed water, salt residue and oils. The lenses provide UV protection and 100% glare free polarised lenses specifically designed for use on the water. Glare Free Vision - Polarized lenses block the glare produced by light reflecting off the water or bright deck surfaces. This reflected light creates a distracting haze which can be a real issure when youre looking for marker buoys or checking sail trim. Polaroids polarizing lenses are made up of a number of functional elements ultra-carefully bonded together to achieve a high-performance optical product: The main element of the sandwich lens construction is the polarizing light filter in the centre. Laminated to both sides of the filter are UV light absorbers. Optically corrected, shatter-resistant cushion elements are laminated to both side of the UV absorbers, followed by a unique scratchproof coating applied to the outer surfaces. Natural Colours - Filter category 3 lenses allowing 8-18% light transmission and are useful in bright sunlight, driving and general purpose wear. 100% UV400 - UV light absorbers which block 100% of harmful UVA, UVB and UVC radiation Reduced Eye Fatique - A quality optical lens is used to prevent vision distortion as cheaper lenses bend and misdirect light so that sizes, shaped and even distances can become distorted - leading to eye strain as youre forced to compensate. Our optically perfect lenses are the result of a unique manufacturing process that fine-tunes the lens for clearer, truer vision. As a result, they comply with European Class 1 Optics Standards. Clear Contrast - For everyday use in sunny conditions wed recommend a Dark Smoke colour ar they block more bright light and dont distort colours. The other lens colour offered is Copper which is great for everyday use but has the added benefit of filtering blue light and therefore enhancing reds and greens - useful for sighting buoys against water and bright blue skies. The Copper lens is also great for being able to still see patches of breeze on the water even when its overcast. Floatable - Designed for life on the water, all Gill sunglasses float. To achieve this, we select lightweight materials but also mould our frames to accommodate closed-cell floatation pods. Our Edge and Speed styles go one step further and contain sealed air-chambers within the frame itself. Hydrophobic - Hydrophobic outer coating sheds water and reduces salt residue for clear vision. Oleophobic - Oleophobic technology applied to the inside face repels fingerprints, sun lotion and skin oils. This is the same technology found on touch-screen devices to reduce finger marks.
