The Sol Invictus range is our latest addition to the family but developed to be true to our original range but improved by our customers.

The main enhancements are:
- The ability to take a prescription lens either a clip in or full lens to take away the double glazing effect.
- A slightly more robust frame, giving an incredible quality feel, but more importantly, these frames will last years, as they are virtually indestructible.
- The Nose pad has been redesigned to give you the ability to adjust to get the perfect fit for comfort and stability, as it turns out most peoples faces are slightly different!
- Two different lens shapes giving more coverage and protection.
- A unique design which works for all sports and when just chilling
- Standard lenses including polarized for the first time, manufactured in a newly developed nylon material which gives higher clarity, better scratch resistance and lighter than the common Polycarbonate lenses.
- Lenses can now also be made specifically for you if requested ie in tint an or some flashy mirrors to give a unique look.
- Subtle branding and the ability to bespoke the colour combinations
- The ultimate lens material Polyamide or known as Nylon are also used on these frames which cost 3 times the price of Polycarbonate, due to their quality
So to clarify Nylon Lenses beat Polycarbonate on:
- Aberration so there is less blurring or smearing effect on objects viewed
- Refractive index (Less light correction)
- Material pureness
- Flexible less likely to snap.

NB Lenses can be ordered as a bespoke pair with your frame or as an extra pair. The standard grey is perfect for all conditions, but some sports like some enhancing properties. In particular, Golf where bronze/Brown gives the ability to judge distances or a red tint for visual depth ideal for cycling or skiing and of course there is the yellow tint for low light conditions. NB our Mirror Blue is unique in having an Amber/Brown Tint perfect for Golf and Cricket, they also brighten the view perfect for cloudy days too.
UPDATE finally today 1/9/2018 we have decided to call the range Sol Invictus thanks to Nigel Mackenzie
