Lens Technology / Glare 86®
SR-91 + GLARE 86® = SUPERIOR POLARIZATION
The foundation of our unique lens technology is the combination of our SR-91 lens material and our proprietary Glare 86 polarized film. SR-91 provides the ultimate in clarity, and Glare 86 - specifically engineered for SR-91 - offers exceptional polarizing capability and tunes the essential light in any environment to your specific needs with unparalleled Light Transmission Control (LTC) technology. A complex lens manufacturing process encapsulates the Glare 86 film into the SR-91 lens material, forming a bond so strong that the lens is guaranteed for life against cracking or splitting of the lens at drill-mounts, or delamination of the inner polarizing film and the lens material.
Lens Technology / Benefits of Polarization
POLARIZED LENSES SHOULD NEVER COMPROMISE YOUR VISION OR SAFETY
Kaenon's proprietary SR-91 polarized lenses are proven to perform flawlessly in any environment. No other polarized lens offers better visual clarity, impact protection, and glare reduction all in an ultra-lightweight lens. Eliminate glare and see what you've been missing.
SR91 Lenses / Lens Comparison
Kaenon introduced polarized SR-91 as the answer to all of the shortcomings of existing polarized lenses. Glass is heavy and shatters, CR-39 is brittle and not impact-resistant, while polycarbonate offers a dull view and scratches easily. SR-91 was tested in independent labs and confirmed to be the only polarized lens that offers razor-sharp clarity, impact-resistance and glare-reduction all in one ultra-lightweight and durable lens. All of the good. None of the bad. But our testing doesn't stop there. Kaenon's SR-91 lens is constantly relied upon and then validated by the world's top athletes and adventurers - and it always lives up to the task.
SR91 Lenses / Lens Treatment
MULTI-LAYER LENS TREATMENT SYSTEM
Every Kaenon lens is treated with our exclusive lens coatings to further enhance your unparalleled visual experience.
SR91 Lenses / Light Transmission Control
LIGHT TRANSMISSION CONTROL (LTC™)
Not content with creating an entirely new lens material, Kaenon continues to advance polarized eyewear with groundbreaking LTC technology. LTC technology is a combination of Kaenon's proprietary Light Transmission Levels (LTL®) and the science behind the exclusive design of our lens tints. Kaenon's own select lens tints - Grey, Copper or Yellow - combine with each LTL to optically enhance, tune and improve visibility in any weather condition, activity or time of day.
Frame Construction / Frame Design
Every Kaenon frame is inspired by our active California lifestyle. Incorporating specific geometry to maximize comfort and function, paying attention to flex-zones and measuring the load on pressure points are only a few of the details we pay attention to so that each frame feels as good as it looks. Our renowned product designer, Harald Belker, works meticulously to incorporate function into the design of every frame shape and style in a way that flows harmoniously to give our frames a distinct look and evoke the spirit of Kaenon. This emphasis on design separates Kaenon from the rest, resulting in a product and experience that is unparalleled.
Frame Construction / Frame Materials
Our attention to detail goes right down to the screw that's used in the hinges of each pair of Kaenon glasses. If a hinge doesn't exist that's just right for the glasses we create, we design one that compliments the style and performance intended of that frame. We specify only the best materials for our glasses - stainless steel to prevent hinges from corroding, or our hydrophilic Variflex rubber that is embedded into the temple tips or nose bridge for slip-free security in any arena. When designing a frame from the ground up, we realize that we have every opportunity to make it just as it should be.
Frame Construction / Inspired Colors
Every Kaenon frame is styled with unique colorways inspired by our authentic California lifestyle. From the evening sunsets, to the kelp in the ocean where we play, to the sand-etched finishes of beach glass strewn across the sand, each color is representative of the diversity of life that we love. We rely on Italian artistry to bring each inspired color to life through our eyewear. Each frame is hand-painted with fine attention to detail for truly one-of-a-kind sunglasses.
