Lens featuresThese Serengeti sunglasses incorporate photochromic lenses. This means the lenses get darker or lighter in accordance with the intensity of the light, starting clearer and becoming progressively tinted. The lenses have a range in light transmission values from category 2 to category 3 (With a light transmission factor between 21% and 9%, they are suitable for wearing in medium to bright sunny days). This model is also equipped with polarized lenses which eliminates glare from water or road surfaces. Made from a unique material called NXT, Serengeti’s Polar PhD lens optimises the qualities of polycarbonate and also benefits from mineral glass manufacturing techniques while leaving out their inherent weaknesses. In fact, it does not have any weaknesses. Originally made for the windscreens of apache gunships, it will stop a bullet! Its transparency and stability over time are exceptional (no cracking). It is ultra-light, has exceptional optics, is unbreakable and solvent-resistant.
The Polar PhD amber lens is ideal for driving because it enhances colours and contrast while lightening and darkening to provide optimal light transmission in any condition.
