Description of Alpina Eye-5 Tour VLM+ Black Matt-White/Varioflex Blue mirror - Glacier Glasses

For extreme heights and protection against very strong reflections from snow, the ALPINA EYE-5 is also available in the glacier version. Its mirrored Varioflex lens is self-tinting, automatically adjusting to the ambient level of brightness up to protection category S4 and stays fog-free thanks to Fogstop coating. The lenses react to visible light, not to UV light as other glasses do. This ensures the optimum tint for the current weather conditions even when subjected to intense UV exposure at high altitudes. The closed arms provide additional protection against scattered light from the side while being very comfortable to wear thanks to the bendable, rubberised tips. The adjustable nose pads ensure the perfect fit on any nose.

Note: Due to the high level of tinting, these glasses may not be worn when driving.

Varioflex is a lens technology which allows glasses to adapt to the weather conditions. Just as the chameleon changes to blend in with its surroundings, so these lenses adopt various tints to protect our eyes. The self-tinting photochromic lenses react to UV light, which causes chemical components within them to turn towards the source, producing a shading effect. When the UV light source diminishes, the lenses become lighter again. The process all takes place in a matter of seconds - giving you glasses that are always adjusted to match the changing light conditions.

Fogstop is a coating applied to the inside of the lens. It is not smooth but rough - seen through a microscope it looks quite fissured. This makes it impossible for moisture droplets to form a covering layer, i.e. to mist up the lens, impairing visibility. This could only occur if the humidity level was such that all the fissures filled with water. But before this can happen, the stored moisture actually condenses, keeping the lens clear - no hairdryer required!

Hydrophobic Lens: Clear, fog-free visibility is something you should be able to take for granted with good sports glasses, but it's impossible to avoid splashes of rain and mud in bad weather. Cleaning your glasses is a tiresome chore and in competitive situations it's nigh on impossible. But with the new hydrophobic lenses in Alpina's Pro Line glasses the job is done for you. The natural self-cleaning effect of the lotus leaf is well-known, and now Alpina has applied the same principle to its glasses. The hydrophobic, i.e. waterrepellent, nanostructure of the lens causes water to form into beads and roll away, taking any dirt with it. Water soluble particles of dirt are dissolved in the water and any non-soluble dirt is simply dragged away as it struggles to find a grip on the fine surface structure of the lens. This not only leaves the lens clean but instantly dry as well.

Adaptable Nosepad: Cold-adaptable nose pads allow optimal adjustment to any nasal width and shape.

2-Comp Design: The combination of hard frame, soft arm tips and nose pads enhances the fit and comfort of the glasses.

Optimized Airflow: Heavily curved lenses in combination with indirect air flow channeling assure vision that is not impaired by draft or fogging.

Coldflex: The tips of the arms are bendable, and can be adjusted to suit the wearer and produce a perfect fit.

Side Protection: Covers embedded in frame.

Case Inclusive: This Alpina sport sunglass comes in a case. The cases for the Tri models also accommodate their changeable lenses.
