Ryders Nelson Polarized Lens
Inspired by a RYDERS classic, the Nelson is a taller and higher-tech version of the ever-popular Hillroy. Despite its handsome looks, it’s not all about style. Thanks to its big lenses along with its hydrophilic nose pads and temple tips, when it comes to performance it can stand toe-to-toe with much sportier-looking eyewear.

Glare comes in many forms, one of the most disruptive is the kind that bounces off of horizontal surfaces such as water, roads and windshields. It can hide important details and potential hazards. Our Injected Polarized lenses allow you to see through this glare, drastically enhancing definition and eliminating the ambient haze of reflected light.
Most other polarized lenses on the market are made of two lenses glued together with a polarizing film in-between. These lenses contain adhesives and other imperfections that reduce clarity and increase eye strain. In contrast, RYDERS Polarized lenses are created using a state-of-the-art injection process. This process allows us to form the lenses precisely, embedding the polarization in the material itself. No adhesives. The result is an optically correct Polarized lens with extremely high clarity.
Adding to the quality, we apply hydrophobic and scratch-resistant finishes,
and layer the back side with our premium, Anti-Reflective (AR) coating—a very important protective feature in bright, glaring conditions.
Anti-Reflective (AR) Coating
A standard for all RYDERS Polarized lenses
Bank security guards. Floating seat cushions. Denim on motorcycles. Sometimes we think we’re protected, even when we’re not. The reality of sunglasses is that some unfiltered light, including UV, will reach your eye by reflecting off the back of the lens. When wearing dark, Polarized lenses, your pupils are dilated, making your eyes more vulnerable to damage. This is why we apply a premium AR coating to the back of these lenses. It not only provides more protection but it enhances clarity.
