Ryders veloPOLAR

THE BENEFITS OF POLARIZED LENSES, FINE-TUNED FOR ROAD CYCLISTS.

FIGHT GLARE. ENHANCE DEFINITION. RESIST FOGGING.

Some otherwise wonderful things simply don’t go well together. Toothpaste and orange juice. Alcohol and Twitter. Relaxing baths and precariously balanced toasters. To many, polarized lenses and road cycling should not be mixed. Polarized lenses offer all sorts of good, glare-fighting comfort and highly defined details, while road cycling is one of the world’s great endurance sports. In fact, it is the most popular sport in the whole Tour de France. So why do so many cyclists insist that polarized lenses aren’t for them?

Three reasons: normal polarized lenses can hide slippery surfaces, they can black out LCD screens, and they can produce undesirable optical anomalies that alter depth perception on features like sewer covers, windshields, and road patches.

The veloPOLAR™ lens is fine-tuned to give road cyclists the benefits of a polarized lens without the compromises, allowing it to filter out the blinding part of the glare without hiding a slippery surface or blacking out an LCD screen. It even minimizes optical anomalies and utilizes RYDERS antiFOG and hydrophobic coatings so the lens remains as clear as possible for your entire ride. It’s the ultimate in clarity, definition, and fog-resistance, and it’s the first lens of its kind specifically developed for road cyclists.
