Rapid Eyewear's British-designed 'pilot-style' Altius RC sunglasses combine strength, style, comfort and cutting edge lens technology to provide you with the ultimate sunglasses for use at the flying field. 

Altius have a build quality and feature list that makes them outstanding value for money when compared to alternative high-end brands.

The Frame

Manufactured from a tough nickel-silver alloy, the top quality Altius frame is extremely robust, with sprung side arms and solid hinges that do not exhibit the slop associated with cheaper sunglasses. Adjustable nose pads and rubber side arm extensions enhance comfort levels. Finished in an attractive silver colour.

The Lenses

Utilising Rapid Eyewear's Multi Layer technology, Altius lenses are packed with features. Made from impact resistant polycarbonate, the lenses are finished with a flash mirror coating. The Category 3 tint is ideal for normal sunny conditions.

Glare is caused by the sun's rays bouncing off horizontal surfaces, including clouds, car windscreens and wing surfaces etc. Polarised lenses remove this glare by filtering out horizontal light. Polarised lenses can be manufactured in one of two ways - cheaper sunglasses have filters stuck on to the front of the lens, and this does work to a large extent but for optimum performance the filters need to be built in to the lenses. Altius has this feature, providing the very best glare reduction possible.

The Altius lenses have a hard coating to make them as scratch resistant as possible. They also benefit from hydrophobic and oleophobic coatings, which resist grease and water.

By filtering blue light from the spectrum, Altius lenses improve depth perception and contrast, making it easier to judge the distance to, and orientation of, your model.

Retainer Strap

If you intend to use these sunglasses for open-helmet or off-road riding, we recommend you consider adding a retainer strap to your purchase. You can do this by clicking on the relevant button near the top of this page before completing your purchase.
