EXPERT POLARISED SUNGLASSES FOR SPORT
As worn by Ortis Deley on The Gadget Show
The Expert design makes for a very nice looking pair of sports sunglasses - and they pack a high specification too:
- lightweight, wrap-around frame
- Frame made from a tough TR90 composite
- 3 x interchangeable lens sets for different light conditions
- Lenses have vent cut-outs for anti-fogging
- Adjustable nose clip
- Revo-style, anti-IR red mirror lens provides superb optical definition
- Carry case, cleaning cloth and head / neck securing strap included as standard
Finished in a highly attractive matt black and orange colour scheme, the frames have rubberised tips for comfort. Being extremely light, and thanks to a slight flex that makes the sunglasses fit most sizes and shapes of head well, Expert are very comfortable to wear. The frame is made from TR90, a plastic composite material famous for being virtually bullet-proof and thus superior to the more common polycarbonate.
The Expert frame benefits from an adjustable rubber nose clip, which can be narrowed or widened to exactly fit the wearer's requirements.
Made from an extremely robust and impact resistant polycarbonate, all lenses bundled with the Expert are made to very high optical standards. Three sets of lenses are provided as standard, and these are as follows:
- Category 0, light-enhancing. For use on dull or cloudy days
- Category 2, beige polarised. For use on fairly bright or changeable days
- Category 3, red 'Frostech' mirror, for use on bright / sunny days and at altitude

All lenses supplied with Expert are anti-scratch coated, and decentred, which means the possible distorting effects of placing a curved lens in front of your eyes are calibrated out at the manufacturing stage.
All lenses filter out blue light, which improves the definition of the field and ball in your field of view.
An additional advantage is the ability of the Category 3 red lens to filter out 90% harmful infra red, making Expert the perfect choice for use at high altitude.
Rapid Eyewear's precision optical lenses filter blue light, in order to improve contrast and depth perception in your field of view.
Expert are supplied with a lint-free cleaning cloth, head / neck securing retainer and carry case as standard. The case has internal pouches for storing the extra lenses, plus a belt fixing catch and loops, making for easy access to your sunglasses when you need them in a hurry.
All Rapid Eyewear sunglasses conform to EN1836 and Z80.3 regulations for sunglasses. In order to comply with the US regulations, a sample from every batch is subjected to a drop-test (impact test) at the manufacturing stage, to ensure their strength. Expert offer 100% UVA / UVB protection, and also 90% infrared protection with the Category 3 lens fitted.
Additional Lens Options
We are pleased to offer additional lenses for those who want to make their Expert sunglasses more versatile.
Our clear, impact resistant untinted lens set makes Expert ideal for use as safety glasses when a tint is not required, e.g. cycling, shooting, DIY etc. Despite having no tint, this lens set is still 100% UV protected, and has vent cut-outs.
The green mirror lens set has been specifically designed for golf - through cutting blue light, it features superb definition and contrast on the course, allowing you to read the terrain and greens far better.
