We engineered SR-91® to deliver the lens that finally meets the demands of an active lifestyle. It's incredibly lightweight, durable and scratch-resistant, able to survive your ride, your run, or your paddle. It's also got the impact resistance that traditional glass or plastics can't offer, so your eyes are always protected.

And most importantly, every SR-91 lens offers superior polarization which gives you the unparalleled clarity and glare reduction that's ideal for enjoying life outside. That's why this combo comes standard in everything we make – including prescription orders.
