What makes Kaenon Polarized Sunglasses Superior to Others?
SR-91 Lens Technology
Kaenon introduced polarized SR-91 as the answer to all of the shortcomings of existing polarized lenses. Glass is heavy and shatters, CR-39 is brittle and not impact resistant, while polycarbonate offers a dull view and scratches easilty. SR-91 was tested in independent labs and confirmed to be the only polarized lens that offers razor sharp clarity, impact resistance and glare reduction all in one ultra-lightweight durable lens. All of the good and none of the bad.
SR-91 + Glare 86 = Superior Polarization
The foundation of Kaenon's lens technology is the combination of SR-91 lens material and Kaenon's proprietary Glare polarized film. SR-91 provides the ultimate in clarity, and Glare 86 - specifically engineered for SR-91 - offers exceptional polarizing capability and tunes the essential light in any environment to your specific needs with unparalleled Light Transmission Control yechnology. A complex lens manufacturering process encapsulates the Glare 86 film into the SR-91 lens material, forming a bind so strong that the lens is guaranteed for life against cracking or splitting of the lens at the drill-mounts, or delamination of the inner polarizing film and the lens material
Myth Vs. Reality
Until Kaenon introduced the SR-91 lens, all polarized lenes sacrificed one feature for another. It was this ever present theme of compromise that created the long standing belief of polarization in eyewear. Kaenon's superior patented SR-91 polarized lens not only put these beliefs to rest, but compromise also becomes a thing of the past.
MYTH: Polarized lenes are not good for golf.
REALITY: Inferior polarized lenes tend to do more harm than good on the golf course; distorting your view and depth perception, and only available in very dark tints, reducing the detail that your eyes might see, thus making it very difficult to read tricky greens. Given these problems it easy to understand why polarized lenses get a bad rap in the golf world.
However, with Kaenon's unsurpassed clarity, SR-91 is a performance polarized lens material that offers visual clarity equal to glass lenses. In addition, SR-91 features visual contrast, enhancing depth perception and increasing your ability to read greens. Just like golfers use a different club for different situation, SR-91 offers a full range of purpose built lens tints and varying Light Tranmission Levels (LTL) so golfers can finally rely on a polarized lens to give them crisp vision in any light condition. Don't take our word for it, look at the PGA Tour players who rely on SR-91's range of LTL options to up their game, from Robert Allenby's use of Kaenons lightest lens (Copper 50), to Carin Koch's use of Kaenons darkest lens (grey 12).
Light Transmission Control (LTL)
Kaenon wasn't content with just revolutionizing lens material, so Kaenon also advanced polarized eyewear with groundbreaking LTL technology. LTL technology is a combinationof Kaenon's proprietary Light Transmission Levels (LTL) and the science behind the exclusive design of Kaenon's lens tints. Kaenon's own select tints, Grey, Copper, and Yellow, combine with each LTL to optically enhance, tune and improve visibility in any weather condition, activity or time of day.
Grey: A neutral tint that doesn't alter color perception
Copper: Enhances color contrast, depth perception, and detail recognition.
Yellow: Superior color contrast enhancement and detail definition.
Every Kaenon frame is inspired by the active California lifestyle. Incorporating specific geometry to maximize comfort and function, paying attention to flex-zones and measuring load on pressure points are only a few of the details Kaenon pays attention to so that each frame feels as good as it looks. Kaenon's renowned product designer, Harald Belker, works meticulously to incorporate function into the design of every frame shape and style in a way that flows harmoniously to give each Kaenon frame a distinct look and evoke the spirit of Kaenon.
