Description

  • Polarized, UV400 lenses with hydrophobic finish (like RainX for your lenses) and dual anti-scratch & shatterproof technology
  • Ultralight TPX™ frame construction for extreme durability and 20% lighter than average frames for floating effect and long-term wear
  • Microfiber cloth included with every purchase
  • 59mm lens width; 19mm bridge width; 126mm temple length

  • The Anhingas frame namesake is one of the most versatile and fascinating coastal birds in the US, diving deep into the water to catch dinner and just as comfortable flying above. The dual-comfort nature of the "snake bird" is a nod to this new frame, which offers a sport fit and wears with enough style for an everyday carry. Rheos™ floating sunglasses are the only complete line of sunglasses that float in water with the same style and comfort as an everyday pair of shades.

    Due to our specialty TPX® material, the frames are 20-30% lighter than standard sunglasses, which allows them to float without any additional buoys or bumpers. The lenses are polarized with 100% UV protection, including dual anti-scratch and anti-reflection layers. Whether you’re hanging out on the lake or floating on the surf, you can finally protect your eyes without worrying about losing your shades. You've never imagined sunglasses as light and comfortable as these!

    • WE CREATED SOMETHING THAT MAKES EVERY DAY ON THE WATER FLOAT BY WITHOUT A WORRY IN THE WORLD.

       

      Our frames are made of the highly durable and ultra lightweight TPX® material. Due to its unique manufacturing process, these frames weigh approximately 30% less than the same component moulded in polycarbonate while maintaining a hyper-durable structure to ensure its comfort for long-term wear and floating capability. TPX® requires no drying before moulding and consequently suffers zero deterioration when in contact with water to maintain its durability over extended periods of time.

      These frames weigh 30% less than their polycarbonate counterparts to ensure their comfort for long-term wear and floating capability.

      ALL RHEOS LENSES HAVE PREMIUM POLARIZATION, UV PROTECTION, & DUAL ANTI-SCRATCH COATINGS

      Why are polycarbonate lenses perfect for sports?
      Polycarbonate is a thermoplastic that starts as a solid material in the form of small pellets. In a lens manufacturing process called injection molding, the pellets are heated to 500 degrees until they melt. Compressed in extreme pressure scenarios the lens is complete in less than five minutes. Because of this unique process, polycarbonate lenses are much more impact-resistant than both regular glass and other plastic lenses. These materials are relatively "soft" — which means they can absorb energy without lens fracturing. It is also the lightest lens material made and yet offers far greater impact resistance than glass or plastic.

      POLYCARBONATE BENEFITS

      • Premier impact-resistance: 10 times more impact resistant than other lenses
      • Thin: About 20-25% thinner than plastic or glass lenses
      • Lightweight: ~20% lighter than plastic lenses
      • UV Protective: Polycarbonate lenses offer inherent ultraviolet protection without needing additional special coating
      • Scratch-resistant: Although no lens is scratch proof, our polycarbonate lenses come with a scratch-resistant finish to keep them clear as long as possible

      Because of this unique process, polycarbonate lenses are much more impact-resistant than both regular glass and plastic lenses.

      Why is UV protection important?
      "Ultraviolet" means "beyond violet", violet being the color of the highest frequencies of visible light. The rays themselves can’t be seen but the harmful effects on your eyes is quite clear. These rays can also be up to twice as damaging when reflected off of surfaces such as snow and water.

      How do polarized lenses work?
      Light is made up of waves travelling in different directions. Vertical light is useful to the human eye; it helps us see. But when light strikes a flat surface like a lake, snow, or even your windshield it changes to horizontal light and creates a glare. Polarized sunglasses block horizontal light, so you don’t get the glare. And nobody likes glare. It’s juuust about that simple.
