  • Shatterproof lenses: A fundamental characteristic of prescription sport glasses with category 4 lenses is un breakability. DEMON lenses are made of solid first quality anti-breakable polycarbonate. In addition to being lighter than lenses made with conventional materials, they are more resistant to accidental impacts, and therefore safer. In the event of a very strong impact, the lens distributes the shock of impact in all its surface creating a spider web effect that invalidates it, it does not generate any kind of fragment that could damage the eye. 
  • Optical Clip :  The optical clip is the technology that makes the prescription sport glasses with category 4 lenses unique in its kind, combining mountain sunglasses with the world of eyeglasses.
    The optical  clip is inserted in the pressure frame through a special allocation in the frame, it can be removed at will, especially because it is possible to use the prescription sport glasses also by removing the optical clip in case you intend to practice your activity favorite sportswear using contact lenses. The optical clip can also be used both with a sweat sponge installed and in case you want to use the glasses by removing it.
    The optical clip is created in the same material as the frame, therefore it is very elastic and resistant even at high and low temperatures.

  • Ultralight and Elastic Frame:  All frames of the prescription sport  glasses with category 4 lenses are made of TR90, a special composition of Nylon and Carbon Fiber which makes the eyewear 20% lighter than the use of conventional materials. The glasses are more resistant to accidental impacts and more resistant to high and low temperatures without breakage or deformation. The TR90 is a special hypoallergenic plastic composition with “memory”, this means that when we wear the glasses it acts like an elastic wrapping the head gently and then returning to the original shape when we remove the glasses.
  • Accessories: The OPTO OUTDOOR RX model with category 4 lenses is equipped with 2 special accessories that those who practice Alpinism know well and that make the difference between a normal mountain pair of glasses and a technical pair of glasses. – Removable Sweat Sponge: The sweat sponge is a very interesting element, in addition to preventing the sweat from coming into contact with the eyes, it protects the athlete from the air by forming a lateral barrier, and also prevents the light from filtering laterally from the glasses frame. – Adjustable elastic cord: this accessory is often considered as important as the sweat sponge; in fact, it allows to increase the stability of the glasses to the face and acts as a support to avoid losing the glasses when not in use. Even the elastic cord can be removed when not needed.
