Giro Filter Sunglasses

Giro leaped into the eyewear market with a four-model portfolio touted as the next step in sunglass evolution. Giro has an exclusive agreement with Carl Zeiss Vision Sunlens, producer of the world's finest eyeglass and sunglass lenses and precision optics for over 100 years, to offer Zeiss Certified True Sight™ lenses as an option throughout the collection.
  • Super Fit nylon frame that is specifically designed to integrate seamlessly and perfectly with almost every helmet.
  • The Carl Zeiss certified lens is an impressive bit of polycarbonate with superb clarity and lack of distortion that easily trounces the vast majority of single-lens competitors.
  • Dura Clean™, a hydrophobic hardcoating process that repels water, oils and debris that can compromise vision.
  • Rabobank's Denis Menchov won the '09 Giro d'Italia wearing Giro eyewear. In 2009, Rabobank, Slipstream, Bissell, BMC riders also wear these Giro sunglasses.

Giro’s patent-pending Pop Top system goes beyond traditional “snap-in” lens changing systems that make it difficult to change lenses without fingerprints, stress or scratches to the lens. Instead, Pop Top features a sleek lever in the temple of the frame that releases the lens, allowing easy lens removal and installation. Once you’ve changed the lens, the lever locks the lens in the frame when you’re done.

Unlike other interchangeable lens eyewear, you don’t need to touch and therefore dirty the Giro Filter's lens to either fit or remove it.
Simply flip the Pop-Top hidden levers located just in front of and above the arm hinges, and slot the new lenses into position. It takes no force and therefore only the lightest grip of the lens edge is required. When located, simply flip the levers shut and the lenses are locked into position, without rattling or slipping.

Step 1 – Hold the sunglass in the middle, with the front facing you
Step 2 – Open the Pop Top latch to release the lens
Step 3 – Grasp the edges of the lens, and remove the lens from the frame
Step 4 – Slide the new lens into the frame
Step 5 – Keeping the lens in place, close the Pop Top latch
Step 6 – Repeat the process with the other lens, then ride.

The Mark of ZEISS Quality
The semi-visible “Z” engraved onto each lens is a uniqueness of ZEISS products. This mark allows you to recognize the authenticity of the lens against imitations and it certifies the conformity to the highly restrictive ZEISS standards.

The unique quality control procedure has introduced parameters and procedures used in the ophthalmic market, which are far more severe than the International Standards for sunglass lenses. This means that every single piece marked with the “Z” satisfies all those requirements, including abrasion tests, optical and design tests, durability tests and inspection tests.

All to a higher level.

oakley Elite eyewear Collection

Source: oakley Elite
The premier frame in this exclusive eyewear family takes aesthetics to an entirely new arena, and it would not be possible without the world’s most advanced structural technologies. Oakley Elite C SIX utilizes pure carbon fiber, a material thinner than human hair yet stronger than high tensile steel. This breakthrough innovation from the aerospace industry is blended with resins and assembled into structures more than 40 layers thick. Five-axis Computer Numeric Control machining carves and shapes the composite with a process that requires more than 24 hours of continuous tooling.

This unique rendition of C SIX has two components of carbon fiber with the remainder comprised of aluminum. With production technologies originally developed for the manufacture of premium wristwatches, aluminum is sculptured in custom-engineered tooling processes including precise 20,000 rpm cutting by Computer Numeric Controlled robotics. The aluminum structures are anodized with electricity then combined with the carbon fiber components and a flexible titanium spine. Hand assembly is followed by hand finishing and hand polishing.

PIT BOSS Sunglasses
He is the voice in the race driver’s headset and the commander of a crew that turns the blitz and frenzy of split seconds into poetry in motion. He is the boss, period. Oakley PIT BOSS is the design that owns the respect of its namesake. When an attitude this assertive meets a sculpture this honed, it’s not about getting in somebody’s face and roaring orders. It’s the simple idea that you’ve earned your place, and they damn well better respect that.

An original vision of Oakley’s founder, PIT BOSS was four years in the making. State-of-the-art technology wasn’t the issue. Oakley had already become a world leader in optical innovation, and from the first inception of this sunglass, everyone knew it would be a show case for the very best that science could offer. For the founding father of Oakley, it was a matter of art and style, and it became a relentless pursuit of perfection. PIT BOSS had to be absolutely unique, completely original, and as outspoken and assertive as those who earn the right to wear it. Some of the most talented designers in the industry gave a chunk of their lives to attaining that vision. After years of tireless work, they nailed it.

The technology of PIT BOSS is just as aggressive as the styling. It matches oakley's stress-resistant OMATTER® frame material with ultra-lightweight titanium plates, forged at searing temperatures and chiseled by Computer Numeric Controlled machinery with a precision of 0.002 inches. That’s just one five-hundredth of an inch, and it gives you an idea of the craftsmanship behind the creation. For high-velocity impact protection, oakley used hexalobular bolts to secure the plates with authority. The Three-Point Fit maintains comfort all day while holding the lenses in precise optical alignment, and the lenses themselves are a thing of technical beauty.

Every frame comes with premium Oakley HDPOLARIZED lenses that filter out 99% of glare without the visual haze and optical distortion that comes with ordinary polarized lenses. The back of each lens has the added protection and glare reduction of anti-reflective (AR) coating, and the front is augmented with IRIDIUM® coating to further reduce glare while precisely balancing light transmission. On top of all that, we added Oakley HYDROPHOBIC™/OLEOPHOBIC technology, a permanent coating that repels dust while maintaining a smudge-resistant barrier against skin oils, fingerprints, lotions and sunscreens. It even repels water to prevent streaks and sheens from corrupting your point of view.

The lenses wrap your vision with 8.75 base curvature, a contour that extends peripheral view and improves side protection against sun, wind and impact. Even with the styling of that much curvature, you’ll have razor-sharp clarity at every angle of view because the lenses are engineered with XYZ OPTICS®, one of the patented innovations of HIGH DEFINITION OPTICS® (HDO®) combines patented optics and PLUTONITE® lens material that provides 100% UV filtering and unsurpassed impact protection.
The pure PLUTONITE®lenses filter out 100% of all UVA, UVB, UVC and harmful blue light up to 400nm. Optical precision meets the uncompromising standards of ANSI Z87.1, and same goes for protection against high-velocity and high- mass impact. If you need corrective optics, this frame is available with Oakley Authentic Prescription Lenses.

The Matte Rootbeer & Bronze version comes with Tungsten IRIDIUM® Polarized lenses that increase visual contrast to bring out detail and enhance depth perception. The Polished Black & Gunmetal edition comes with VR28® Black IRIDIUM® Polarized lenses that offer the same benefits. If precise color perception is critical, choose the Matte Black & Titanium frame with Black IRIDIUM® Polarized lenses.

PIT BOSS is crowned with metal icons specially designed for the OAKLEY ELITE family, an exclusive collection that seamlessly blends the world’s most advanced optical technologies with aesthetics like nothing ever seen in the realm of eyewear. PIT BOSS comes with a custom display box suitable for collectors, plus a custom MICROCLEAR™ bag for lens cleaning and frame storage.

LENSES (Polycarbonate)
This type of lens (polycarbonate) is ideal because of its light weight and high optical quality. The resistance to scratches and shatter damage in case of a crash, are essential features in a protective item like this one. All lenses block 100% of the ultraviolet rays (UV and UVA/B 400), rays that can be highly dangerous to the human eye.

2) IceMirror, with 8-18% Light Transmission, Filter Category 3.

The concept “light transmission” refers to the percentage of light that the lenses allow to pass.
