The metal brow and nose bridge detailing combined with the square lens shape characterize the Highwire. Constructed with Evolve eco-material and megol nose pads for a precision fit. The Highwire is offered with ChromaPop™ polarized lenses providing the highest levels of enhanced color and clarity.
ANTI-REFLECTIVE (A/R) COATING:
Vacuum applied, Anti-Reflective (A/R) coatings on the back side of the lens will eliminate bothersome sidelight reflections.
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.
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 centre toward the peripheral view. What this means for you is that you see with 100% accuracy and maximum comfort.
: Polarization cuts glare. Glare off of horizontal surfaces like snow, water, and asphalt, decreases depth perception, and reduces visual acuity which causes eye fatigue. Smith precisely align the polarized visual layer inside Smith’s lenses to filter out 99.9% of this "visual static" for a finely tuned view of the action.
Through Smith’s proprietary ChromaPop polarized lens technology, they help you see detail and colour beyond normal capabilities. ChromaPop filters two specific wavelengths of light that cause colour confusion. By doing this the lens delivers greater definition, more natural colour, and unmatched clarity to allow you to see more detail.
