'NIMBUS DRIVE' SUNGLASSES: IDEAL FOR USE IN THE CAR AND ON THE BIKE
A highly versatile package, the polarised 'Drive' sunglasses from Rapid Eyewear provide not one but three sets of interchangeable lenses, ensuring you'll enjoy the ideal vision whatever the conditions on your bike - with the yellow anti-glare lenses fitted, you can even use them at night, and on those dark winter days. 'Drive' have reasonably flat side arms, making them comfortable under both full and open motorcycle helmets.
Why Are They Good for Bike Use?
Drive are excellent for drivers and bikers because:
Interchangeable lenses are ideal for all types of light (even at night)
Polarised lenses remove glare from the road and other vehicles
Wrap-around styling blocks sunlight from the sides of your vision
Strong, impact resistant lenses
100% UVA / UVB protection
Stylish and comfortable
Made from a tough yet lightweight TR90 material, the Drive frame is extremely robust, and has a slight inbuilt flex that allows it to shape itself to most sizes of head. Rubber nose pads and side arm extensions make for a comfortable fit. Sprung side arms. The arms are thin enough to fit comfortably beneath a helmet.
Included as standard, the three sets of lenses are:
Category 0, yellow, light-enhancing / night use (see below)
Category 2, beige polarised for fairly bright days
Category 3, grey mirror polarised for sunny days
Polarised lenses greatly reduce glare by filtering out horizontal light, making them perfect for removing reflections off the road surface and oncoming vehicle windscreens. The yellow lenses have an anti-glare coating on the reverse that makes them ideal for use at night; they greatly reduce glare that's caused by oncoming vehicle headlamps and street lights etc., improving your ability to see objects ahead. They also have the effect of reducing fatigue on long journeys (bright light can cause tiredness).
All lenses are very high quality, with anti-scratch coatings and decentred calibration for distortion-free viewing.
Also supplied in this comprehensive package is a carry case, with internal pouches for storing spare lenses, a cleaning cloth and neck / head securing strap.
