Demon has thought of all athletes who practice archery by creating a specific line of sports glasses that protect the athlete’s eyes and help him to better target the target.
Sports glasses for archery
By characteristic the discipline of archery has many affinities for needs similar to shooting. It is essential that the eye is always well protected, and that the athlete is able to focus on the target.
Archery glasses are now an essential accessory in every athlete’s equipment for maximum protection of the eyes outdoors, especially on very strong sunny days, which as a real protective tool from external projections (insects, dust, etc.)
We assume that archery goggles are an apparently simple tool but at the same time require careful evaluation. Basically, because the glasses are not all the same and different characteristics will be more performing for some situations or light and climatic conditions than others.
To ensure maximum fun in complete safety, DEMON has created a detailed guide for you to help you choose the archery glasses that best suits your needs.
BASIC CHARACTERISTICS OF THE SHOOTING GLASSES:
How is a ballistic eyewear different from other glasses? A ballistic eyewear apparently can resemble other glasses used for sports use, actually the materials that make up the lenses and frame are very similar, in recent years there has been a total evolution in the construction of sports eyewear, safety has become the element fundamental, they too are built with anti-breaking lenses and elastic frames that are ultra-resistant to accidental impacts.
The archery glasses mount anti-breaking polycarbonate lenses, the polycarbonate lens differs from normal glass lenses, which we absolutely do not recommend for the practice of sports archery, because they involve very high risks for the eye in case of breakage.
Polycarbonate is a special plastic composition with high impact resistance. The peculiarity of this material is that in the event of an impact, even very strong, the lens distributes the shock across the surface. The resistance to impact tension is therefore very high, this allows you to create very fine and at the same time ultra-resistant lenses, allowing you to significantly reduce the overall weight of the glasses.
The lens of the archery glasses is very curved for maximum lateral protection but at the same time without any visual distortion even in the curved part.
The best eyewear is the one that during its use we forget that we are wearing it. This is the basic prerequisite of DEMON for the creation of every sports frame. Archery goggles have a frame built in TR90, a special composition of Nylon and Carbon Fiber that makes the glasses 20% lighter than frames made with conventional materials. It is also more resistant to impacts and tractions.
To increase comfort, the archery goggles of the DEMON line are equipped with an adjustable rod, in fact it is possible to adjust the length of the rod at will for maximum comfort and the perfect fit for any face.
The rubberized parts are built in soft hypoallergenic “megol”, not only increase in comfort during the fit but have anti-slip feature, in fact even in the phase of great fatigue or strong vibrations the archery glasses must remain stable to the face preventing annoying micro sliding towards the tip of the nose.
We now enter the technician, because the glasses must protect the eyes from light and projections but must also guarantee the perfect and constant vision of the target to allow the athlete maximum performance.
There are various colors of lenses, each for different light conditions, environment or climatic conditions. We explain below in detail the various lens colors and for which conditions offer the best performance.
- Transparent lens:
Use: Indoor, Fog, Rain, Cloudy Weather, Night
Notes: The transparent lens is an indispensable element in the equipment for those who practice archery, it is ultra-performing for low light conditions, it can in fact be used for days of fog, rain and very cloudy weather. For those who practice in sunset time, or extend the practice at night, the transparent lens is the only element to be able to continue the practice in complete safety for the eyes.
The transparent lens can be used indoors, to better protect the eyes from artificial lights and at the same time ensure perfect vision of the target.

- Orange Lens:
Use: Cloudy weather, low sun
Notes: The orange lens is a very useful accessory element in archery equipment, the orange lens has the high contrast characteristic, in fact it lightens the vision and allows you to identify the target more precisely. This type of lens is particularly suitable in case of cloudy weather. We also recommend it for days of low intensity sun, especially for days where the use of a smoke lens is too dark and the use of a transparent lens too light. The orange lens is a special intermediate lens that completes the range of lenses for all light and atmospheric conditions.

Notes: Archery goggles with interchangeable lenses are supplied with a smoke lens and a high contrast orange lens and transparent lens. By interchanging the lens, they are more performing for any light condition. The lens change is fast and practical, and in 10 seconds it is possible to remove and reassemble the replacement lens. The choice of this type of archery eyewear is for all athletes who want a complete eyewear that guarantees maximum protection and performance.

- Photochromic lenses:
Use: All light and indoor conditions in polygon
Notes: Photochromic lenses are lenses which, exposed to UV radiation or sunlight in general, initiate a reversible chemical reaction and darken. Once the irradiation of light disappears, the lenses gradually return to the initial state of transparency. Using this type of lens for archery means choosing a sports eyewear that can adapt dynamically to any light condition. The eye will always be protected and at the same time in maximum relaxation to allow the athlete to focus solely on performance.
