    Through their proprietary ChromaPop lens technology, Smith help you see detail and colour beyond normal capabilities.

By doing this the lens delivers greater definition, more natural colour, and unmatched clarity to allow you to see more detail.

    Other Lens Features

    Smith Sunglasses - Lens Technology - Hydroleophobic Coating

    Hydroleophobic 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. Applied as standard to all lenses.

    Smith Sunglasses - Lens Technology - Polarisation

    Polarisation (Optional)

    Polarisation cuts glare. Glare from surfaces like water and asphalt decreases depth perception and reduces visual acuity, causing eye fatigue. Polarised lenses filter out 99.9% of this 'visual static' for a finely tuned view of the action.

    Smith Sunglasses - Lens Technology - Anti-Reflective Coating

    Anti-Reflective Coating

    Vacuum-applied anti-reflective coatings on the back side of the lens eliminate bothersome sidelight reflections, boost UV protection and improve the external look of your frame by dampening internal reflection.

    Evolve Frame Technology

    To enjoy the outdoors we each need to do our bit to preserve it. Smith recognise their obligation to be considerate of the environment by using Evolve - a groundbreaking a frame material which has allowed them to manufacture bio-based frames which make absolutely no compromise on performance or comfort.
