Mountain biking is a discipline known and loved worldwide. Pure adrenaline, speed, fast passes, kicking up the dust, jumps, vibrations. Every professional rider or MTB enthusiast is constantly looking to increase their own performance and overcoming one's limits. DEMON he designed and created a line of MTB glasses built with cutting-edge materials to provide the rider with perfect and constant visibilityone of the route and maximum safety for your eyes.
Each rider therefore searches for increasingly high-performance materials and technologies to be able to have fun during their outing, but at the same time elevate their performance in total safety.
There are some essential needs, specifically for protectionone of the eyes, which all Riders have, regardless of whether they are professionals or amateurs: - Perfect facesone in changes of light - Impact resistance - Maximum stability of the glasses - Ergonomics and lightness
- MTB glasses DEMON they are designed and built according to these 4 characteristics that we consider FUNDAMENTAL that differentiate ordinary sports glasses from real technical glasses for Mountain Bikes.
Why are these requirements so important?
We will now explain the 4 fundamental requirements on which the design is basedone and createone di DEMON of MTB glasses:
PERFECT FACESONE IN LIGHT CHANGES: The Mountain Bike is characterized by continuous light/dark changes and vice versa. Entering a tunnel, a forest area, or a simple hilly or mountainous shaded area can force the rider to slow down or in the most extreme cases interrupt their activity for a few seconds due to difficulty in seeing their route, road or path. Therefore having to slow down or temporarily interrupt your performanceone in addition to making the rider nervous, it can limit the pleasure of one's ride. Choosing the best performing MTB glasses is therefore essential to combat this type of situation effectively. What are the most id lensesoneand for the most part performance and safety? Le photochromic lenses. These specialslow ones are the most appreciated and idoneand for those who practice this discipline. They are made of polycarbonaterimquality, decentralized and optically perfect. Polycarbonate is the most effective material in constructionone of the lenses of MTB glasses because it is an unbreakable material (another fundamental aspect that we will explain later) and guarantees maximum protection.one and resistance to impacts (leaves, branches, stones, insects, etc...). Photochromic lenses are speciallenses which, when exposed to UV radiation or sunlight in general, start a reactionone reversible chemistry and darken. Once you irradiate itone of light disappears, the lenses gradually return to their initial state of transparency. Specifically, therefore, entering a shaded area (tunnel or even very dense forest area) in the absence of irradiationone of light the lens returns to the color it has in the non-working phase carrying out functionsone of protectionsone from air and projections, while exiting the shadow area it will return to the chemical process, darkening the lens, limiting the glare of light exiting the shadow. This specialand dynamic lens that constantly adapts to every variationone of course light provides the athlete with perfect and constant visibilityone of the route.There are 2 different photochromic lens technologies for the line of MTB glasses, which differ substantially based on the specific needs of the Rider, increasing esponetional the performance and safety:- Photochromic lens DCHROM: It's evolutionone of the photochromic lens it has a slightly darker base color than the other photochromic lenses to reach category 3 during maximum work (darkness of sunglasses with mirrored lenses). In addition to the remarkable speed of light-dark change, they will surprise you with the notable sense of relaxation that they manage to provide to your eyes, even on days with strong irradiation.one solar. This type of lens is particularly recommended for riders who practice a lot of zone even very dense forests but at the same time they alternate the itinerary in large open spaces, where prolonged use of a lighter photochromic lens can be annoying. However, it can be dark (in case of lightingone artificial not sufficient) for night practice, for which we recommend the Smoke photochromic lens.
- Smoke Photochromic Lens: This particular photochromic lens differs from the lens DCHROM for the coloringone in the phase of maximum work of total transparency. Start the same reactionone chemical that darkens the lens through irradiationone solar. However, in addition to the colorationone When starting out lighter, it is half a shade lighter at maximum work. This specialand photochromic lens is particularly suitable for riders who face long zone of very dense forest, for those who often practice mountain biking at dawn and sunset where the brightness is particularly low, and in particular for those who also practice many night excursions where they need a completely transparent filter for protection.one from air, leaves, branches and projections. For those who practice MTB and have these specific needs, we recommend choosing this type of lens to avoid all those possible inconveniences resulting from poor vision.one of the route.
IMPACT RESISTANCE (Lenses): Another aspect considered fundamental in the designone of MTB glasses it is the choice of safe and unbreakable materials. Mountain biking is the cycling discipline that most requires safe and cutting-edge materials for total protectionone of the Rider. For protectionone of the eyes, shatterproof polycarbonate lenses have been created which protect against accidental impacts, even very strong ones, in a safe and effective way for the eyes. The peculiarity of the polycarbonate lens of the lens mounted on all mtb glasses features elasticity and resistance. In the event of an impact, even a very strong one, the lens distributes the shock across its entire surface, TOTALLY PREVENTING the creation ofone of small fragments harmful to the health of the eye, but creates a "cobweb" effect which invalidates the lens. The use of polycarbonate allows the weight of the MTB glasses to be lightened, but at the same time increases significantly.onesafety for the Rider's eyes is essential.
In the following photos you will see the result of the test applied to the polycarbonate lens, hit strongly and repeatedly with a steel hammer to simulate very strong accidental impacts. The lens did not suffer any breakage, and in some places it was deformed to absorb the shock. Protecting the athlete's eyes as best as possible is the pillar on which DEMON bases the creationone of the lenses of all the glasses in the collectionone.
IMPACT RESISTANCE (Frame): The frame of the MTB glasses is also impact-resistant and made of TR90, one specialand compositionsone of Nylon and Carbon fiber which makes the glasses 20% lighter than conventional materials and more resistant to accidental impacts and mechanical tractions. The nylon gives the glasses great elasticity and greater resistance. It is non-deformable at high and low temperatures and more durable over time.
MAXIMUM STABILITY OF THE GLASSES: The TR90 performs functionsone fundamental for the stability of the MTB glasses, in fact by wearing the glasses they "widen" to effectively wrap the physiognomy of the head without tightening, and then return to the original shape when not working. Using glasses that fit perfectly to the face provides greater stability in the event of strong vibrations and sudden, sudden movements typical of MTB. There are also rubberized parts of the frame in soft non-slip Megol to increase the stability of the glasses and prevent all those annoying micro slips. You will therefore be able to tackle all the most extreme and bumpy routes in total safety with the total stability of the glasses. The glasses are also designed in distributionone of the weight, to prevent frontal imbalance towards the tip of the nose. Every detail is designed specificallyone of the maximum performance.
ERGONOMICS AND LIGHTNESS: Non-obvious consequence of the construction materialone of the mount. In fact, the shape of each pair of glasses is designed to wrap the face in absolute comfort. TR90 and megol are ergonomic, hypoallergenic materials designed to provide maximum comfort even in the most extreme conditions. Choosing stable glasses with total comfort is essential when choosing your MTB glasses. Using uncomfortable or heavy glasses for very long periods of time can not only distract or annoy the Rider, but also leads to a clear reductionone of the performance.
