Technical Bobster Definitions (to see if this pair of Bobster eyewear utilizes the following technology, please refer to "Features" above)
PHOTOCHROMIC LENSES - ACTIVE CELL TECHNOLOGY
Photochromic lenses get darker when exposed to sunlight (UV light) and then lighten back to their original state when UV light is not available. Photochromic lenses have millions of molecules of substances embedded in them. The molecules are transparent in artificial lighting or in the absence of direct sunlight. When exposed to UV rays, such as direct sunlight, the molecules undergo a chemical process that causes them to change shape. The new molecular structure absorbs portions of the visible light, causing the lenses to darken. These lenses are perfect for motorcyclists who do not want to carry around multiple lenses or complete eyewear to use during changing light conditions.
Bobster specializes in the design of interchangeable eyewear customized to change along with ambient light and environmental conditions as well as user requirements. Lenses can be switched out quickly with ease by popping the lens from the frame and inserting the new lens of choice.
All Bobster Eyewear models features durable, lightweight, polycarbonate lenses which provide startling optical clarity and protection against high-mass and high-velocity impact. Polycarbonate lenses are the preferred lenses for performance eyewear because they are shatter-resistant and will NOT splinter if hit by fast-moving objects, such as debris and small stones. All Bobster® lenses provide 100% UVA & UVB protection. *Bobster Eyewear utilizes polycarbonate lenses in all of our frames unless otherwise noted.
While ordinary tinted lenses reduce brightness, only polarized lenses eliminate glare. Bobster® uses polycarbonate polarized lenses to ensure the impact resistance of the lenses while most other companies use polarized lenses that will shatter at high impact.
