PERFORMANCE POLARIZED SUNGLASSES AND TACTICAL EYEWEAR.
HELIUS 780 INFRARED LENS SYSTEM
The Helius 780 or H780 IR (Infrared Reducing) lens technology. This lens system is by far the most advanced offering to date in all market segments. Light is part of the electromagnetic radiation in which the visible light that the human eye can observe range between 390 and 700 nanometers. Ultraviolet radiation that causes eye disease, stops at the 400 nm or nanometer scale. Most polarized eye wear protects you from these harmful UV radiations but there is another harmful radiation that has never been addressed. Infrared light lie beyond the red end of the visible light spectrum with wavelengths between 780 and 10.000 nm. They can be a potential hazard since they produce heat, therefore raising the overall temperature in the anterior of the eye. IR also damages the crystalline lens and the retina. RCI Optics has produced a lens system that incorporates a revolutionary IR filter that can absorb harmful infrared between 780 and 2.000 nm. H780 Lenses reduce the total heat load reaching the eye and preventing nuisance and damages, such as visual loss, haze, flare, dry eye syndrome while improving glare reduction and eye fatigue.
HELIUS L25 LOW LIGHT LENS SYSTEM
The L25 Low Light lens System provides 25% light transmission at the median range while enhancing light at the higher end of the color spectrum and is 100% polarized. This lens system will allow for use at low light conditions while providing longer wear times than other Low Light systems that are offered by our competitors. It is perfectly suited for sight fishing, shooting, cycling and any other outdoor activity that can be imagined. The Advantage is Clear!
HELIUS HIGH IMPACT H780 + L25
Only our Ballista 2.0 frame material combined with the H780 high Impact Lens has exceeded the pinnacle of performance technology. Imagine having incredible clarity while blocking more than 88% of visible light on some lenses and as much much as 92% on others. The lenses are able to sustain a .15 cal. round at 650+ ft. per second impact. Stop imagining and look at the Right Coast Independent difference! All LEVIATHAN series have passed the stringent MIL-STD 662 impact testing and all RCI Optics Classic Series that are not Leviathan still utilizes the Helius High Impact Lens. To summarize, even our non-Leviathan products exceed our competitor’s offerings. The H780 High Impact Lens is a base polymer that is 6 times harder than traditional polycarbonate lens material and is designed for high impact ratings such as ANSI-Z87.1, high mass, high velocity ratings.
Xiphos 4.0 is a permanently bonded application to the Helius RCT High Impact Polarized lens system that provides superior hydrophobic, oleo-phobic, anti-scratch and at the core is its anti-static properties that makes it perfect for extreme weather conditions while providing a durable performance application that is easy to clean and is durable to scratching while repelling dirt, oil, water and other contaminants.
