"Go Confidently" is not just a tagline, but a mantra that we believe in, strive for and deliver. At Wiley X our commitment to making the best polarized eyewear is a painstaking process that ensures that what you receive is perfected all the way down to the finest detail. The work that we put into our products is reflected in everything that we do – it's in our DNA. Wiley X will never compromise, and neither should you. We promise that we will always move forward to push the boundaries for what is possible when creating premium polarized eyewear and we have once again moved the boundaries of what is possible by creating the patented lens technology CAPTIVATE™. At Wiley X we started our color-enhancing lens research just over ten years ago. Over the last four years, we managed to develop and design the most complete polarized lens on the market and still making the most versatile protective eyewear possible. As an example - Wiley X CAPTIVATE™ patented lens technology is the only premium polarized eyewear that block out all bad blue light up to 430NM. When testing the Wiley X CAPTIVATE™ lenses against competing eyewear, independent labs found CAPTIVATE™ lenses to either match or outperform the competition in every chromatic test. To reiterate, we do not come in 2nd to any of our competitors’ CE lenses. For the last three years, we were proudly crowned King of Kings as we picked up the award for "Best New Polarized Eyewear” in Europe in 2017/2018, 2018/2019 and 2019/2020.

Awards season 2017-18

Here’s to hoping for more big fish and tight lines.

WILEY X INTRODUCES CAPTIVATE™ is a new patented lens technology from Wiley X that redefines color by filtering out harmful UV/HEV blue light and confusing light. CAPTIVATE™ lenses filter light, revealing vivid detail, vibrant contrast and optimal clarity. When testing the Wiley X CAPTIVATE™ lenses against competing eyewear, independent labs found CAPTIVATE™ lenses to either match or outperform the competition in every chromatic test. To reiterate, we do not come in 2nd to any of our competitors’ CE lenses. CAPTIVATE™ eyewear is the only contrast enhancing glasses that meet the EN. 166 & ANSI Z87.1 safety standards. While other companies focus on either the functionality or style of eyewear, we manage to deliver a product that’s stylish on the outside and mind blowing from the inside. CAPTIVATE™ DOESN’T ONLY REDEFINE COLOR, IT SETS THE BAR FOR WHAT SUNGLASSES CAN BE.

COLOR SPECTRUM WITHOUT CAPTIVATE™ Our eyes can easily distinguish the blue, green and red wavelengths along the visible light spectrum. However, it's where the blue, green and red wavelengths merge together that the human eye has a difficult time seeing clearly.

VISUALIZING THE LIGHT SPECTRUM EVEN THOUGH THE HUMAN EYE CANNOT SEE THE ENTIRE LIGHT SPECTRUM. CERTAIN AREAS OF IT ARE DIFFICULT FOR THE EYES TO SEE CLEARLY, AND OTHER AREAS ARE VERY DANGEROUS TO YOUR EYES’ HEALTH. CAPTIVATE LENSES FILTER OUT HARMFUL RAYS AS WELL AS LIGHT THAT CONFUSES THE EYE, INCREASING CLARITY AND DEFINITION WITH VIBRANT CONTRAST AND VIVID DETAIL. 06 //

COLOR SPECTRUM WITH CAPTIVATE™ CAPTIVATE™ lenses filter out that confusing light and make the color spectrum clearer for the eye. The results are increased contrast and greater clarity.


CAPTIVATE™ LIGHT SPECTRUM This chart shows the peak chromatic response for the colors blue, green, and red. • Shaded zones represent the areas where light waves merge and confuse the eyes. This is where it is best to filter out light. • Think of the shaded areas as confusing light and the non-shaded areas as clear light. • CAPTIVATE™ blocks out the UV and bad blue light (380nm-430nm) – blue violet/HEV rays of light that are harmful to our eyes, reducing the risk of damage to retinal cells and age-related macular degeneration.

WITH CAPTIVATE™

BENEFITS OF CAPTIVATE™ ENHANCED COLOR

INCREASED CONTRAST

CAPTIVATE™ filters out the confusing light where blue merges with green (500nm) and green merges with red (585nm). This allows more light where it’s easier for your eyes to see, resulting in enhanced blues, greens and reds for a true color experience.

CAPTIVATE™ technology is offered in a variety of lens tint options so you can fine-tune your experience based on the specific needs of your environment.

GREATER CLARITY

By eliminating the bad blue light haze while separating and enhancing colors in the visual spectrum, CAPTIVATE™ lenses will enhance depth perception.

Blue light with shorter wavelengths and higher frequencies scatter light and create haze. By filtering out this “bad” blue light, CAPTIVATE™ removes the haze and allows distant objects to be seen more clearly.

INCREASED ALERTNESS / ELEVATED MOOD CAPTIVATE™ lenses allow the beneficial side of blue light – blue-turquoise rays – to be seen. This helps maintain the body’s Circadian biological clock and the sleep/wake cycle. This beneficial blue light also boosts alertness, helps memory and elevates mood. 08 //

BETTER DEPTH PERCEPTION

BLOCKS UV AND BAD BLUE LIGHT (HEV-HIGH ENERGY VISIBLE LIGHT) CAPTIVATE™ blocks the UV/HEV rays of light that are harmful to our eyes, reducing the risk of damage to retinal cells and age-related macular degeneration. It is important to remember that spending one hour outside on a normal overcast day exposes our eyes up to at least 30 times more blue light than spending one hour inside sitting in front of a screen. Wiley X CAPTIVATE™ is the only premium polarized eyewear brand that blocks out all bad blue light up to 430NM.


OLEOPHOBIC COATING

// NEW

Wiley X utilizes a proprietary oleophobic coating on all CAPTIVATE™ lenses to create a smoother lens surface, which helps to keep dust, dirt, oil, snow and water from sticking to the lens. This in turn helps prevent smudging and water spots, making the lenses much easier to clean than an uncoated, standard lens.

WITHOUT OLEOPHOBIC COATING

WITH OLEOPHOBIC COATING

SCRATCH/ABRASION RESISTANCE Captivate lenses achieve a Bayer 7 rating for scratch resistance. A rating of 4 or higher equates to a premium coating.

WHAT IS THE BAYER ABRASION TEST?* The Bayer test is one of the most often cited test methods for abrasion resistance. This test subjects both a coated lens and an uncoated lens to abrasion from oscillating “sand.” The tray is reciprocated in a back-and-forth (to-and-from) motion a distance of 10 cm. (4 inches), at 150 cycles per minute for 4 minutes. After this the haze gain is measured on both lenses. The ratio of haze gain of the uncoated lens to the coated lens is the Bayer Ratio. A Bayer Ratio of “1” means that the coating has equivalent abrasion resistance to uncoated lens. A Bayer Ratio of “7” means that the uncoated standard lens had seven times the haze gain as the coated lens. A common standard Bayer Ratio equal to “4” or greater is considered by the industry to be a premium coating.

POLARIZED FISHING EYEWEAR Whether the day is bright or overcast and you're fishing the smallest stream or the largest ocean, polarized eyewear is one of the most critical pieces of equipment that you can have besides your rod and reel. Having proper eye protection while fishing is paramount to individual safety. Many angling tactics cause lures, flies, metal spoons and hooks to fly wildly in the air causing severe injury to unprotected eyes. Wiley X polarized sunglasses will enhance your vision by blocking glares from the water and other light reflecting surfaces. Whether you are fly fishing or surf casting, Wiley X provides you with the best performance eyewear for your chosen activity. Rest assured – Wiley X will protect you while you are casting the last cast, still hoping for the big one‌

"I have been wearing Wiley X polarized eyewear for years and I have always been more than happy with the quality and overall performance. Wiley X polarized glasses are extremely comfortable to wear and I hardly feel I’m wearing sunglasses. With the all new CAPTIVATE™ lens technology Wiley X has taken polarized lenses to a whole new level. I see fish following my lure earlier and have time to react in time and change the action from my lure when needed. Wiley X polarized eyewear using CAPTIVATE™ lens technology is by far the best polarized eyewear I have ever used and I can’t imagine fishing without them."

OPTICAL TESTS While many consumers think ANSI, EN.166 and Military standards apply only to impact protection, these tests also set standards for optical quality. All Wiley X glasses undergo optical testing to ensure they meet these standards. As the only company in the trade – all Wiley X eyewear are being tested and certified through independent laps. This is your guaranty for only getting the best of the best.

MIL-PRF-32432 MCEPS

WILEY X – POLARIZED PERFECTION Wiley X polarized lenses are tested before they are even cut and carefully measured in order to maintain the best optical quality in the final product. Any other eyewear provider who tests and certifies polarized lenses must meet the requirements in EN 172 Clause 4.3.2. * +/-3° OUT OF 360° = 1,67% *

EN.172 CLAUSE 4.3.2 POLARIZING FILTERS Where sunglasses are fitted with polarizing filters, these shall be fitted in the frame so that the plane of polarization does not deviate from the vertical, or the nominal direction if different from the vertical, by more than +/-3° or 1,67%.

MAXIMIZED PRESCRIPTION POWERS The Wiley X RX Rim System makes eye protection available for prescriptions up to +5.50 and -5.50. Now more people than ever can experience the ANSI rated and EN.166 certified protection and sleek style of RX-ready sunglasses that are equipped for anything at anytime. Available in selected Climate Control Series styles.

PRESCRIPTION LENSES

POLYCARBONATE LENSES

The majority of all the Wiley X frames can be fitted with prescription lenses. As our professional prescription lens partner, we have chosen Shamir, whose AttitudeTM lenses are specifically developed for our 8-base curve frames. The result is individually customized lenses that offer crystal clear vision in any given situation, while providing the same crucial protection as the non-prescription lenses developed by Wiley X.

To meet the stringent worldwide safety eyewear standards, Wiley X uses the lens material called polycarbonate. The flexibility and strength of polycarbonate enables it to stop the impact from a 12 gauge shotgun or fragments from an IED (Improvised Explosive Device). Wiley X applies anti-scratch coatings on all lenses to increase the lifetime and maintain a top of the line product.

The RX program enables simple ordering and delivery of single vision and progressive corrective lenses through your nearest optician.

PERFORMANCE MARKINGS All Wiley X styles are ANSI rated and EN.166 certified except Youth Force® Sports Protective Eyewear, which are ASTM F803 rated. We test and mark all of our frames and lenses with the appropriate ANSI and EN.166 markings.

EN.166 STANDARD MARKINGS

SMART EDGE LENS TECHNOLOGY Our SEL (Smart Edge Lens) technology lenses are de-centered and tapered to ensure they can meet ANSI & EN.166 optical clarity standards. They also block 100% of the sun’s harmful UVA and UVB rays according to EN.170:2002.

RESOLVING POWER (CLARITY)

Ordinary lenses can distort objects viewed from a distance. As measured in tests utilizing the NBS Pattern 20, Wiley X lenses provide a clear view.

REFRACTIVE POWER

Inferior lenses can alter the true size of objects as if looking through another person’s prescription lenses. Wiley X rated lenses maintain true relative object size.

PRISMATIC POWER

It is common for ordinary lenses to bend light, causing focal objects to appear off center. Wiley X rated lenses provide a true spatial relationship of objects in the field of view.

FACIAL CAVITY™ SEALS Fine dust and pollen, as well as wind, can cause long-term eye irritation such as Dry Eye Syndrome. Peripheral light can also diminish optical clarity. Wiley X removable soft foam Facial CavityTM Seals combined with Top Down™ Ventilation System block out even the finest irritants and peripheral light, protecting the eyes and allowing all lenses to perform at peak levels. Facial CavityTM Seals are available on selected styles.
