Serengeti Technology

ULTRAL-LIGHT GLASS LENS

A full 20% thinner and lighter, Serengeti’s ultra-light glass is the most optically superior lens on the market.

HYDRO & OLEOPHOBIC COATINGS

Repels water, fingerprints, and debris while and anti-reflective coating absorbs glare to eliminate backside reflections.

POLAR PHD LENS

Made with Trivex material that is 75% lighter than glass and 10% lighter than polycarbonate. Reduces lens weight, improves strength, Serengeti Polar PhD lenses deliver exclusive hues and high-definition benefits that are near-glass in clarity.

 

PHOTOCHROMIC LENSES

SERENGETI PIONEERED PHOTOCHROMIC LENSES

CONSTANTLY ADAPTING TO LIGHT CONDITIONS

Darkening in bright sunlight and lightening in overcast conditions, Photochromic lenses provides your eyes with the optimal amount of light at all times so you can adapt to any light, anytime, anywhere. Drivers lens transmittances - Darkened lens 9%, Lightened lens 24%. Colors and light transmittance comparisons.

SEE EVERY DETAIL WITH PHOTOCHROMIC LENSES

By constantly adjusting to changing light conditions, photochromic lenses allow you experience enhanced contrast and discern shapes and colors more quickly. Eliminating both eyestrain and the loss of Detail.

TRUSTED BY DRIVERS AND PILOTS 

The ability to adapt instantly anywhere is why Serengeti Sunglasses are the preferred choice of drivers, pilots, and anyone who experiences a wide range of light conditions on a daily basis.

HOW IT WORKS

Serengeti imbedded molecules into the lens that adjust to light. In bright light conditions, when UV light is more intense, the lens molecules expand in size, darkening the lenses and allowing them to absorb more light. In darker conditions when UV radiation is less intense, the molecules shrink and separate, letting additional light pass through. This provides the optimal amount of light at all times and to eliminate eyestrain and give you the clearest view of the world around you.

 

 

SPECTRAL CONTROL

MANAGING THE LIGHT, STARE DOWN HAZE

Spectral control works like a visual equalizer by selectively managing the light wavelengths and blocking out the harshest ones. Haze and glare are dramatically diminished, contrasts is enhanced, and your vision is sharper all while blocking out distracting blue light which causes eyestrain and fatigue.

ENHANCED VISION

By managing colors within the visible light spectrum, Spectral Control technology gives you stunning, high-definition contrast and color enhancement. This essentially gives your eyes control over the light, resulting in crisper vision and amazingly clear images.

 

POLARIZATION

STOP THE GLARE, CONTROL THE LIGHT

It may be beautiful scenery, but if light is bouncing around and being reflected off myriad surfaces, you're not going to see it at its best. That's why our polarization technology is specifically engineered to eliminate distracting glare, giving the wearer unsurpassed clarity and comfort.

POLARIZATION, A VENETIAN BLIND FOR YOUR EYES

Serengeti’s polarizing technology acts as a microscopic venetian blind. Parallel light rays can enter, while distracting perpendicular rays from glare are absorbed. Not only is glare irritating, but it also compromises clear vision, hinders your view, and tires your eyes. By eliminating clear on all surfaces, Serengeti lenses are idea for driving and other high-glare activities such as skiing and boating.

 

GLASS LENS OPTIONS

Serengeti has six lens hues that further enhance your driving experience by providing you with a range of options and technology designed to handle any light variation or weather condition.

Drivers Lens

The amber-colored Drivers lens is particularly well suited for driving. That’s because it enhances colors and contrast, lightening and darkening for optimal light transmission in any driving condition. It’s also engineered to transmit more red, yellow and green colors, making it ideal for identifying stoplights. And thanks to its ability to relax your eye muscles, the Drivers lens helps reduce stress and fatigue while driving. Available in non-polarized and polarized ultra-light glass and Polar PhD™lenses.

Photochromic Non-polarized and gradient glass:

Photochromic Polarized glass:

555nm

Ideal for bright light conditions, the photochromic 555nm lens manages yellow and green light transmission to cool and relax the eyes. The light silver mirror coating further reduces eyestrain by acting as a protective shield against glare. Available in non-polarized and polarized ultra-light glass and Polar PhD lenses.

Photochromic Non-polarized glass:

Photochromic Polarized glass:

Drivers Gold

This lens has all the benefits of our signature Drivers lens, along with a stylish gold-flash mirror that reflects visible and infrared wavelengths, which can be damaging to the eye. Available in polarized Ultra-Light glass and Polar PhD lenses.

Polarized Glass:

CPG

The CPG, or cool photo gray lens, is ideal for all weather conditions, particularly harsh glare. With its exceptional polarization properties, it's clearly not timid when it comes to maximum protection. Available in Polar PhD lenses.

Polarized PhD:

Sedona®

This unique, rose-colored lens provides a remarkable high-contrast view in the harshest light condition, and it’s ideal on water and snow or in any intense light condition. Available in Polar PhD lenses.

Polarized PhD:

555NM Blue

We start with our 555nm lens and then add a reflective blue coating that blocks more light, adding to the lens’ eye-protecting capabilities. Available in Polarized ultra-light glass and Polar PhD lenses.

Frame Features

Wire-Flex

Designed to bend to the contours of your face, Wire-Flex frames feature a highly flexible and strong blend of nickel, silver and stainless steel. The result is a fit that feels truly customized. Some Wire-Flex frames are available with velvet or leather-like tannery finishes.

S-Flex

The revolutionary S-Flex design emplys a mix of monel and beta titanium metals for a supremely durable, lightweight frame. It is also engineered with the "S"-shaped temple design, providing a snug fit and unparalleled comfort. Some S-Flex frames are available with leather-like tannery finishes.

 

Hinges

Premium, durable spring hinges allow temples to gently hug any face shape for a comfortable and customized fit.
