Aspen Sunglasses for Sports Flying

What do you want from your sunglasses? If looking cool is your main priority, then the new Aspen from Rapid Eyewear’s Alpine range are for you. If you want a practical pair of sunglasses that are fashionable yet practical for skiing, climbing, snowboarding, para-gliding and hang-gliding, Aspen are also perfect. So there you have it – the ideal
sport sunglasses for all-round usage.

The Aspen from Rapid Eyewear feature some great lens technology, as well as excellent wind and ice blockage, plus secure fixing by way of an included head strap. Remove the strap and rubber wind shields, and you have a pair of sport sunglasses that can be used in any situation.

Like all good quality sport sunglasses, the Aspen frames have a slight flex that enables them to fit comfortable around most sizes of head, without pinching; and yet, they won’t feel like they are about to fall off, either. The frame is made from TR90, an incredibly strong material that’s superior to polycarbonate, and will ensure the glasses cannot shatter in the event of an accident. Finished in an attractive green / grey matt colour, the frames benefit from rubber side-arm extensions and nose pad inserts that help to provide maximum comfort levels. A pronounced ridge inside the lenses virtually eliminates unwanted wind and light intrusion all the way around your vision.

In line with the other sunglasses in the Rapid Eyewear Alpine range, the Aspen feature Frostech anti-fog and anti-glare lenses. However, in addition, they feature a blue tinted Category 3 lens, which has the added benefit of filtering out 97% of infra-red rays whilst achieving superb definition in their field of view.

As with all Rapid Eyewear sunglasses, the Aspen offer 100% UVA / UVB protection and conform to EN 1836 and US Z80.3 standards for safety eyewear.

It’s easy to change the Aspen from a fashion item into a great spec pair of sport sunglasses. All you need to do is add the rubber inserts, which maximise wind and snow blockage from the peripherals of your vision, then attach the push-fit head strap. Put them on, adjust the strap by pulling the toggle at the back and you’re ready to go. Rapid Eyewear's Frostech lens, featuring titanium layers and a blue mirror finish, reduces 97% of infra red rays, making Aspen ideal for climbing and skiing at altitude, not to mention use when paragliding and hang-gliding. Aspen are the perfect 'glacier glasses'.

Each pair of Aspen comes with a microfibre carry pouch as standard. The pouch, which has draw-strings, doubles as a lint-free cleaning cloth.
