Otis have just release a L.I.T. Polarized model of one of their classics. Capitol was released in late 2014 and it's still one of their better 8 base wraps ever produced. Now available with their latest technology the L.I.T lens.
The L.I.T Lens provides a superior combination of visual acuity, illuminated contrast and improved depth perception.
By increasing primary colours and reducing inter-primary colours, the L.I.T Lens;
• Makes objects and terrain in field of view more distinguishable
• Provides sharper, crisper images in greater detail and depth
• Delivers more vivid and saturated colour and creates a superior visual experience
Proprietary multi-layer anti-reflective technology within the L.I.T lens reduces an industry-leading 99.9% of light reflection that typically bounces off the convex internal surface of a sunglass lens.
Anti-reflective technology blocks reflected light on the internal surface of a lens, improving colour definition and depth perception while reducing eye fatigue.
The L.I.T lens carries a proprietary hydrophobic treatment that was specifically designed and chemically bonded to OTIS’ mineral-glass lenses.
The L.I.T hydrophobic technology provides superior protection and creates a broader range-of-use in outdoor environments, aquatic environments and inclement weather.
Polarised – Glare Elimination
The polarised L.I.T lens uses exclusively Japanese polarisation filters within OTIS’ renowned mineral glass lenses.
The polarised L.I.T lens is finished with polycarbonate seam edging to prevent delamination and provide superior integrity in the world’s most durable scratch-resistant lens.
UV and HEV Protection – Eye Health
L.I.T proprietary lens technology cuts 100% of harmful ultra-violet A and ultra-violet B light as well as providing protection from high energy, or high-frequency visible light to a world-leading 430nm compared to industry standard 400nm.
The UV and HEV technology inherent in OTIS’ L.I.T lens provide superior protection from intraocular melanoma, AMD (age-related macular degeneration) and eye fatigue while maintaining true colour and depth perception.
Epic coverage, good depth in the temples and super lightweight grilamid frames.
VISSOTTICA HINGES WITH STAINLESS STEEL SCREWS
OTIS frames are produced with high quality 3, 5 and 7 barrel hinges. These premium grade Vissottica brand hinges are extremely durable and boast 100% corrosion resistance.
TR90 GRILAMID FRAMES
High performance and low weight ratio. TR90’s high-performance property profile and processability makes it an ideal optical engineering plastic. The transparency, rigidity and impact strength of Grilamid compare favourably to other transparent polymers like polycarbonate. It is the lightest engineering plastic in existence, maximising wearer comfort.
8 BASE LENS CURVE
Lens 'Base Curve' is a measure of the front curvature of the lens. The higher the number, the greater the curve. 6 base lenses are generally flatter across the front. 8 base lenses have a greater curve for a more 'wrapped' look.
OTIS sunglasses are constructed using the highest quality materials available. Each component is individually quality checked before being carefully packaged, ready for sale. OTIS sunglasses have a lifetime warranty against defects in materials and workmanship.
