Lens technologies are the core of every optic program, and SHIMANO lenses are engineered to the highest standards: ours.

POLYCARBONATE LENS

SHIMANO lenses feature polycarbonate substrates for superior impact resistance, reduced weight, and performance in a wide range of temperatures.
Full UV400 anti-scratch coatings ensure a clear view under all conditions. All SHIMANO lenses feature decentered optics to provide distortion-free vision that reduces eye fatigue.

IMPACT TESTED

IMPACT TESTED

We impact test lenses to anticipate real world riding conditions to ensure that our lenses withstand and protect against small incoming obstacles, such as insects, branches, and pebbles.

HYDROPHOBIC TECHNOLOGY

HYDROPHOBIC NON-HYDROPHOBIC

HYDROPHOBIC TECHNOLOGY

All SHIMANO eyewear features hydrophobic (HP) coatings applied to both the outer-and inner-lens surfaces to increase water-repellency and to keep lenses free from dust, oil, and dirt. A HP-treated lens stays cleaner longer and is easier to maintain.

RX TECHNOLOGY

RX TECHNOLOGY

The RX-CLIP transforms the standard SHIMANO EQUINOX into a prescription-ready sport frame. The clip attaches close to the lens for an optimized fit.
