Available this Fall/Winter 2015!
The long anticipated e-Tint®-powered eyewear will soon be available in four stylish frame colors and two different tint colors. No matter what your sport, the streamlined and lightweight Akari® REM-X will offer essential eye protection from changing light conditions with the patented e-Tint® technology, enabling the user to change from light to dark tint in less than 1/100th of a second. Additional features include high-impact ballistic & anti-fog lenses and soft, adjustable nose piece and temple tips. The Akari® lens system meets ANSI Z87.1-2010 optical and impact requirements, and U.S. Military ballistic specifications.
e-Tint® technology is based primarily on a liquid crystal system. A customized mixture of proprietary dyes, in a liquid crystal host, is sandwiched between two flexible plastic substrates coated with transparent electrodes. By applying voltage to the substrates, the electro-optic response of the liquid crystal is used to control the orientation of dyes, and consequently the tint of the lens.
Automatic/ Manual Tint Control. Your choice.
REM-X eyewear can operate in a traditional manual mode (on/off) by a simple press of a button, or in a automatic, light-sensing mode. A light-sensitive photo cell is adapted into the frame, enabling the lens to change tint automatically. The eyewear is also easily programmable to automatically change tint in the lighting condition of your choosing.
Superior Optics. Exceptional Vision.
The Akari® lens system meets ANSI Z87.1-2010 optical and impact requirements, with exceptional UVA/UVB protection. And say goodbye to the frustration of fogged lenses during temperature changes and humidity spikes. REM-X eyewear includes permanent anti-fog coated lenses, keeping your vision free and clear.
Military-grade ballistics has you covered.
High-quality and distortion-free polycarbonate lens meets U.S. Military ballistic specifications for spectacles.
Comfort is key.
Robust design and materials protect through all the rigors of athletic action. The sleek and edgy Italian-crafted frames will surely add style to your performance. Weighing 1 ½ ounce (44 g), the Akari® REM-X is equipped with and adjustable nose piece and 360° bendable side arms to allow adjustment for a comfortable and customized fit. The nose pads and side arms are covered with Megol®, a soft, hypo-allergenic rubber that offers a high degree of elasticity and a grip that holds up to saltwater, sweat, sunblock, and grime; all while maintaining a secure and cushioned grip.
Extended hours of battery operation. Power forward.
The e-Tint® system is voltage driven and uses very little current. A fully charged battery offers at least fifty (50) hours of tinted operation. Leave a fully charged pair on the shelf and you will still have tinting power after 4 weeks. The eyewear is powered by a lithium polymer battery, and is rechargeable via a supplied micro-USB cable.
Power fails. You don’t.
REM-X eyewear is equipped with a “fail-safe” mechanism to ensure your safety. In the event of a power failure, the lens will automatically default to clear.
