The Classic Series frame material is TR-90 Grilamid this is a lightweight durable tried and true sports nylon. The classic series utilizes the same Helius lens system as in our famed Leviathans which are the pinnacle of eye-wear technology. All RCI’s products deliver the ultimate in clarity and polarization without compromising function and durability. The RCI lenses come standard with, watersheds, anti-static, oleo-phobic treatments with a mass density that is 6 times greater than traditional polycarbonate.
The original Helius 2.2 polarized lens system was designed after an 18-month R&D process in 2010 and released in 2012 to be nothing less than a groundbreaking lens system that was customer-centric and built for an elite class of outdoorsman.
2016 marked the 2nd generation of the world’s most advanced lens technology, the Helius 780 or H780 IR (Infrared Reducing) lens system.
Based on our famed Helius 2.2 Polarized Lenses, this new Infrared filtration technology offers protection from the harmful effects of infrared radiation. The H780 lens will reduce eye fatigue, enhance color acuity, reduce more glare and add color brilliance all while eliminating IR distortions and internal heat to the eye!
The RCI Optics lens also blocks 100% of the harmful UVA, UVB and UVC. The (HEV) High Energy Visible or Blue Light is dramatically reduced by 95% on our H780 lenses and 88% on our L25 lens system. These lens systems are the ultimate in sun optics bringing the brilliant colors of the Right Coast to life for an unmatched visual experience.
Helius 780 or H780 IR (Infrared Reducing) lens technology.
This lens system is by far the most advance offering to date in all market segments. Light is part of the electromagnetic radiation in which the visible light that the human eye can observe range between 390 and 700 nanometers. Ultra violet radiation that has been known to cause eye disease stops at the 400 nm or nanometer scale.
Most polarized eyewear protects you from these harmful UV radiations but there is another that has never been addressed. Infrared rays lie beyond the red end of the visible spectrum, with wavelengths between 780 and 10.000 nm. They can be a potential hazard since they produce heat, therefore raising the overall temperature of the anterior eye and finally doing damage to it, especially the crystalline lens and the retina.
