What to Look For in Active Lifestyle Sunglasses

Having a pair of versatile sunglasses that can perform in any situation is convenient. But shouldn’t that convenience come packaged with functionality as well as style? We think so. 100% definitely covers all of those bases with their new line of active lifestyle shades. There’s a little bit of something for everyone here ranging from retro style to high performance frames meant to handle adventure as well as the grippy wrap around sport specific frames offered by the brand. We’ll dig into the techy details and leave the style up to you.

Frame Features

The first few things you may consider when shopping for new frames are comfort, protection and durability. Are these frames up to the task? Will they give you wraparound protection? And what about comfort, will they feel like an extension of my cool or just something that’s squeezing my temples? We’ll discuss this below.

Comfort and Fit

The active lifestyle range offers multi-functional frames that can rise to the occasion when necessary. After all, everyone needs a set of shades that look good and feel good too. All 100% active lifestyle frames are shatter-resistant and lightweight thanks to being constructed with a comfortable amorphous thermoplastic known as Grilamid TR90. The lightweight grippy material is often paired with rubber nose pads and tips. This will ensure that the frames aren’t sliding or shifting around while you’re getting after it.

Coverage

It’s a perfect day. Too nice not to add a little adventure to your life. An impromptu exploration of a local trail or a day at the beach is a must! Whatever activity gets you outdoors, eyewear is probably the most important wearable companion you’ll take with you. Many of 100%’s active lifestyle frames feature wrap-around protection that will keep you covered from all angles. Sun, sand, dirt and brush will be handled.

Sendability

100% sunglasses are known for their proven ability in the motocross and cycling arena. Their bombproof reputation is only bolstered by their comfort, excellent lens tech, and unmistakable style. One thing is for sure, this line of active lifestyle shades certainly sends it 100%.

Lens Features

Once you’ve established that you have found the frames that suit your style and outdoor activity you need to make another important choice. After all, vision is the reason we wear glasses at all. Lens tech has advanced a long way so matching you’re activity to the ideal sun protection and resolution is a must. Next, we discuss polarized vs non-polarized lenses as well as lens durability.

Durability

Depending on what you’re looking for, Ride 100%’s active lifestyle frames come fitted with lenses of varying durability. If these shades are purely for fashion then this may not be a factor for you. However, if you’re looking for the same performance features found in their sport lenses you are in luck.

The hydroilo lens treatment repels water, dirt, and oil and is offered in most of these frames. Additionally, the shades suited for your more active days include a scratch resistant lens coating.

Whether you take a hard fall mountain biking or set them on your car roof only to remember them as they slide off heading for the pavement, your shades should be okay. The lenses are constructed from high-impact resistant polycarbonate and will withstand just about anything you throw their way.

Sun Protection

100% offers the highest standard of UV protection in all of their active lifestyle lenses. Depending on your personal sensitivity to light or if you just want that added protection for long sunny days, filter category 2 and 3 lenses are possibly something to consider. Your eyes will thank you for the decreased level of light transmission.

Wraparound protection ranges from 8-base base lenses to 6-base lenses, giving your eyes that extra level of protection while maintaining optical excellence. No distortion here.

Polarized (Peak-Polar) and non-polarized (HiPER) lenses are available in most frames. Depending on your kind of active, this is an important decision. The HiPER lens is great for high resolution images and changing light settings. Perfect for that epic mountain bike ride. Peak-Polar lenses perform best in the brightest settings when maximum sun protection is necessary. Additionally, 100%’s Peak-Polar lenses have managed to eliminate the “black-out” issue common with reading LCD and LED screens with a polarized lens.
