New ZEISS ‘Rose Gold’ lenses for the Typhoon

We’re stoked to add two new Typhoon models – available today in our webshop. The Typhoon adds another string to its bow with the launch of ‘Rose Gold’ Polyamide (nylon) lenses by ZEISS.

We’ve added the new Rose Gold lenses to our popular Transparent Grey frame and have also today launched an entirely new frame color – Matt Graphite with Pink Rubber, pictured below.

 

Zeiss Polyamide Lens Technology

Zeiss’s nylon lenses are lighter and have a higher “Abbe” value than polycarbonate lenses. The purity of the lens material means that it is very close to mineral glass lenses for transparency and clear vision. Nylon is also slightly harder than polycarbonate, so durability is enhanced even without the premium hard (anti-scratch) coating.

Our Rose Gold lenses offer the same 100% UV protection as you come to expect from ZEISS, and of course, the Typhoon incorporates oleohphobic and hydrophobic lenses as standard. The transmittance rate is 14%, sitting right in the middle of lenses Category 3.
