The Wiley X Gravity is a safety-rated performance frame designed for active sports and an energetic lifestyle. It provides 8-base wrap around coverage in a lightweight and durable nylon construction. The Gravity is a member of the Climate Control Series, which protects against wind, sweat, allergens, debris, and nature’s elements. Every Climate Control frame, including the WX Gravity, features versatile design elements to equip the wearer with everything you need at a moment’s notice. From the removable Facial Cavity™ Seal that creates an impenetrable barrier between your eyes and airborne particles, to the optional leash cord that enhances frame retention in the most extreme situations, every detail is meant to perform.
Furthermore, rubber nose pads and temple tips create a 24/7 comfortable grip and keep your frames optically aligned. Correct alignment is particularly important for prescription wearers, as the Wiley X Gravity is Rx-able. Select from single vision, progressive, or bifocals. And if you have a particularly strong prescription, the Wiley X Gravity + Adaptor will take on your vision needs with ease. Both styles are available with Wiley X CAPTIVATE™ lens technology, which enhances color, contrast, and clarity. All CAPTIVATE™ lenses are also polarized, so you can get Wiley X Gravity polarized sunglasses tailor-made to your Rx.
- ANSI Z87.1 & ANSI Z87-2-certified to withstand impacts
- 8-base wrap around design provides maximum coverage & a wide field of view
- Foam Facial Cavity™ Seal creates a complete seal from external elements & is easily removable
- Available with contrast-enhancing Wiley X CAPTIVATE™ lens technology
The Wiley X Gravity is ANSI-certified and has both an ANSI Z87.1 rating and ANSI Z87-2 rating. The latter is simply the prescription equivalent of the former. To earn this safety rating, Wiley X safety glasses are tested against a .25” diameter steel ball traveling at 150fps. After several rounds of testing, you can go confidently that your Wiley X Gravity sunglasses will withstand high mass and high velocity impacts.
Both the frame and lenses of Wiley X safety glasses are ANSI-rated and have the markings to prove it. You’ll find the appropriate ANSI rating printed on both the nylon frame and polycarbonate lenses. And if you get prescription, your Wiley X Gravity prescription lenses will also have the same ANSI rating and markings.
Overall, the Wiley X Gravity is a safe choice for virtually any activity. It is a favorite for motorcycling, shooting, fishing, and jobs that require protective eyewear.
