Beta Sunglasses are 8 base, wrap style sunglasses that feature sharp lines and silhouette and technologically advanced optics. AO Beta Sunglasses boasts a newly minted AO logo, subtle in design following the AO tradition.
Polycarbonate polarized (PC) lens: A new generation of polarized lens manufactured to technologically superior standards. The "CFI Process" utilizes injected polarized sheets and PC resin. This results in the strongest bond and highest optical quality available today. The polarizing filter eliminates glare and reflection from surfaces such as water, snow, glass and pavement. Our PC lenses have a refractive index of 1.59 allowing lighter weight and greater impact resistance. In addition, all PC lenses provide 100% UVA and UVB protection.
Revo Coating: The revo coating is a vacuum deposited, multi-layer coating that provides added protection against UVA & UVB radiation and reduces IR light. In addition, our revo coatings provide aesthetically pleasing, rich two-dimensional effects.
Anti-Reflective (AR) Coating: All PC lenses have an AR (anti-reflective) coating which improves the quality of transmitted light and maximizes optical clarity in all light conditions by protecting against back and side glare.
Hydropellant (HR) Coating: All PC lenses are finish coated with a waterproof coating which repels moisture and water, reduces static build-up and makes lenses easier to clean. Hydropellant (HR) Coating provides maximum optical clarity.
Impact resistant PC: Impact resistant PC combined with the quadruple protection afforded by polarization, revo anti glare properties, AR and HR coatings guarantee superior performance, maximum protection and a unique optical and visual experience.
