NIMBUS SUNGLASSES WITH PHOTOCHROMIC TRANSITION LENSES FOR PILOTS
Nimbus sunglasses have been an integral part of Rapid Eyewear's range for many years, and they remain as popular as ever. This new version introduces a photochromic lens set that changes its tint from clear to category 3 as you go - even when the light changes during a flight, Nimbus Photochromic will adapt to what you need.
Nimbus benefit from a lightweight TR90 frame with sprung side arms, rubber nose pads and rubber side arm extensions for comfort fit. The frame has a slight built-in flex that allows for fitting on most sizes and shapes of head. Finished in a hand sprayed matt black finish.
Nimbus are supplied with a transitional lens that changes from clear, to Category 3 and back again, according to the light conditions. This advanced polycarbonate lens is decentred, anti-scratch coated and impact resistant.
Supplied with a microfibre carry pouch that can be used as a cleaning cloth
