Matching the sweeping profile and sport-influenced wrap of its larger counterpart, the Colson, the Challis is perfect for those seeking a tighter fit and a slightly smaller lens profile. This 8-base wrap utilizes our premium ChromaPop™ and Techlite glass lens technologies for unparalleled optical clarity. Integrating premium spring hinges into the thin, flexible temples, this piece is perfect to accompany you down the road less traveled.
- Lens options: ChromaPop polarized lenses / TLT polarized glass TLT lenses
- Anti-reflective and hydroleophobic lens coatings
- Medium-large fit / coverage
- Stainless steel spring hinges
- 8 Base Lens Curvature
LENS CONSTRUCTION TO OPTIMIZE PERFORMANCE
ChromaPop , Techlite glass and Carbonic lens constructions are optimized to provide a variety of optical and impact-resistant benefits. We precisely align the finest polarized filters and finish our lenses with multi-layer mirror, Anti-Reflective (A/R), anti-scratch, and Hydroleophobic lens coatings. The end result is an artfully crafted lens that preserves color perception and delivers optimized optical clarity and precision in all environments.
Polarization cuts glare. Glare off of horizontal surfaces like snow, water, and asphalt, decreases depth perception, and reduces visual acuity which causes eye fatigue. We precisely align the polarized visual layer inside our lenses to filter out 99.9% of this "visual static" for a finely tuned view of the action.
POLARCHROMIC: POLARIZED LENSES WITH PHOTOCHROMIC TECHNOLOGY TO ADAPT TO EVER-CHANGING LIGHT CONDITIONS
With Smith Polarchromic, we combine the glare-free benefits of advanced polarization with UV sensitive, self-tint-adjusting photochromic technology to bring you lenses that adapt to changing light conditions, so you always have the perfect tint for the amount of light.
TLT (TAPERED LENS TECHNOLOGY)
When light passes through a medium it refracts, i.e. changes course. If left uncorrected, this refraction can cause visual distortion and eye fatigue. Smith’s Tapered Lens Technology straightens out the incoming light rays by progressively tapering the lens from the optical center toward the peripheral view. What this means for you is that you see with 100% accuracy and maximum comfort.
HYDROLEOPHOBIC - WATER AND OIL PROOF COATING
Repels moisture, grease, and grime. A barrier between your lenses and the world. Water will bead up and disperse without streaking. Smudges from fingerprints are wiped clean easily.
ANTI-REFLECTIVE (A/R) COATING
Vacuum applied, Anti-Reflective (A/R) coatings on the back side of the lens will eliminate bothersome sidelight reflections.
