Impact resistant and optically correct, these lenses provide 100% protection from UVA, UVB and UVC rays as well as harmful, high energy light to 400nm. Each lens has technology to prevent water build up and scratching. This is the standard from which we build all of our more technical lenses, so every Ryders lens has the same features at its core and the highest standard of quality.Read more
A Swiss technology, this incredible thermoplastic is the material used in all of our sunglasses (with the exception of our metal frames). Its extreme flexibility, durability and light weight make it the perfect material for performance eyewear.
100% UV400 Protection - All of our lenses block 100% of UVA, UVB, and UVC rays and harmful, high energy light to 400nm.
Lens Protection - Water runs away at first contact, leaving clear lines of sight that are free from droplets and water marks. The Oleophobic characteristics wards off dirt and grease, making the lenses very easy to clean.
Optically Correct - All of our lenses are made by injecting molten polycarbonate into a mold that is specially formed to eliminate distortion.
Lenses with Premium Protection - Coated to help prevent scratches. Though this process makes the surface of the lens considerably harder than the base lens material, it’s impossible to make the lenses completely scratch proof (short of making them from diamonds) so please care for them properly as they may still scratch under certain conditions.
Impact Resistant - All our lenses are impact resistant, meaning they resist breaking up into dangerous little shards when impacted. If astronauts trust this material to keep their heads from exploding while on a 17,000 mph space walk, you'll have nothing to worry about on your adventures, no matter how fast you're going.
1986 brought about the first ever Canadian Mountain Bike Championships. The competition spanned a few days and finished in Whistler with local boy, Brent Martin, coming out on top.
Shortly after being crowned Canadian Champion, Brent founded RYDERS EYEWEAR. His goal was simple—provide cyclists of all stripes with high quality, performance-oriented eyewear that they wouldn’t hesitate to use, especially in the most destructive conditions. But it wasn’t just about eyewear and bikes. He was determined to remain actively entrenched in the cycling community. For over 30 years, RYDERS has stayed true to Brent’s vision.
These deep roots in the Northwest are of vital importance to who we are today. Not only are we still headquartered in North Vancouver, but our overwhelming sense of community—in our backyard and afar—our drive for adventure, and our love for providing like-minded people with hard-working gear are unstoppable forces.
Today, we are known as an offbeat, gritty brand with authentic roots. We speak directly to those who take pride in their adventurous lifestyle and their practical, yet highly spirited approach to life.
WE CONTINUE TO DESIGN, DEVELOP AND TEST OUR PRODUCTS IN OUR OWN BACKYARD, ENSURING THAT EVERY PIECE STANDS UP TO THE TREACHEROUS NATURE OF THE NORTH SHORE. IF IT MEETS THE DEMANDS OF BIKING IN THIS REGION, WE FIND IT EASILY PERFORMS FOR ALMOST ANY OTHER ATHLETIC ENDEAVOR.Read more
This was my second pair, 1st was great, 2nd not so much. I know my face is crooked but this pair was all tweaked out of shape.
