Orange Lens - The Orange lens is suited to various light conditions. It orange reflects blue light and offers excellent contrast in flat light conditions for optimum visual perception. Light Transmission: 70%
Polycarbonate Lens Material
Polycarbonate offers first-rate optical characteristics, excellent impact resistance and extraordinary lightness. It has a low refraction index and filters out ultraviolet light. All Northwave polycarbonate lenses are subjected to surface hardening treatments that make them resistant to abrasion and solvents.
Off Centre Lens Curvature
The accentuated curvature of standard lenses provides impact protection but may distort the field of vision. Northwave sunglass lenses have an off-centre base: the axis of the focal centre is perfectly aligned with the focal centre of the eye. This ensures that your field of vision remains perfectly natural and balanced, preventing image distortion and eye fatigue.
Water Repellent Lens Treatment
Northwave lenses undergo a treatment that leaves them exceptionally smooth, this allows drops of water to so simply slide down the lens rather than attaching to microscopic ridges found on regular lenses. Essential for clear vision in wet conditions.

Tried to buy these in the summer, but everyone was out of stock. Merlin's "email me" facility worked, and the glasses arrived the day after I ordered. Only done one 70 mile ride wearing them - good visibility, comfortable.
I'm very impressed with these. I can't see any difference in optical or frame quality compared to Adidas Evil Eyes(which I've had)or even Oakley Radars at four times the price. 3 sets of good lenses included, doddle to change lenses, comfortable fit, look good, keep the wind etc out, but don't steam up and the nose pieces are adjustable. Highly recommended.
The glasses are great, very light and comfortable. The lenses are easy to change and it all comes in a very sturdy case for both the glasses and the lenses.
Comfortable, stylish and great value. Lenses are easy to switch out, and arms are just the right length - i.e. don't interfere with the straps on any of my helmets. Unless I was going to spend a lot more, I can't think of anything else I'd expect from a pair of cycling specs.
