Hard-core sailors need their sunglasses to perform two primary functions: protection and glare reduction. The World Cup models not only do that, they look good doing it! Their durable, scratch-resistant, SuperThin (ST) Glass lenses are 20% thinner and lighter than standard laminated glass lenses making them so comfortable you’ll forget you have them on. That is until you notice their PolarizedPlus2® lens technology has stopped glare off all the flat, smooth and shiny surfaces around you. Their advanced polarization not only blocks 100% of UVA and UVB rays, but color-enhancing properties provide truer colors and more vivid views, and a unique bi-gradient mirror adds protection from light and reduces eye fatigue. They even have extra-wide temples to reduce side glare. Full nylon frames and anti-corrosive hardware offer long-lasting performance. Chocolate Stripe Fade frames with HCL® Bronze lenses, Marlin Frames with Neutral Gray lenses.
