RYDERS 2018 COLLECTION
RYDERS 2018 COLLECTION
In the early 80’s, mountain biking was only just emerging as a sport. The equipment was bad and the clothing was worse. Over just a few years, its popularity grew considerably with a scene developing in Whistler and on Vancouver’s notorious North Shore. By the mid-80’s, the gear was improving and the sport was progressing rapidly. 1986 brought about the first ever Canadian Mountain Bike Championships, with the competition spanning a few days and finishing in Whistler with local boy, Brent Martin, coming out on top. Shortly after being crowned Canadian Champion, Brent founded RYDERS EYEWEAR® .
His goal was simple—to provide cyclists of all stripes with high quality, performance-oriented eyewear that they wouldn’t hesitate to use, especially in the most destructive conditions. But it wasn’t just about eyewear and bikes—he was determined to remain actively involved in the cycling and outdoor community, doing what he could to encourage the growth of these sports. For the past 31 years, we have stayed true to Brent’s vision.
The reality is that mountain biking, road cycling and endurance mountain sports present the most unique and challenging environments for eyewear. Designing eyewear for golf, baseball or activities that occur in static environments doesn’t force you to meet these challenges. We design, test and produce products to directly solve problems that are encountered in these hostile activities and environments. Our deep roots in the Pacific Northwest are of vital importance to who we are today. Not only are we still headquartered in North Vancouver, but everything we do is influenced by our drive for adventure, our love for providing like-minded people with hard-working gear, and our overwhelming sense of community—both in our backyard and afar.

Whether you’re looking for a pair of shoes or a new a bike, fit is absolutely critical.
Performance eyewear is no different. Long-term comfort, fog resistance, helmet compatibility, as well as glare and wind protection are all affected by how well the frame fits your face. There are many aspects of frame design that—when applied properly—are more likely to produce a high-performance product on a wider range of face shapes. This is where 30 years of experience, an in-house design team, and a big crew of product testers spread over a vast range of climates, geographies, and action sports come into play. HOW TO GET A FOG-RESISTANT FIT If you want the ultimate in fog protection, combine a great fitting frame with our critically-acclaimed antiFOG lenses.
Fogging is one of the most common issues affecting high-performance eyewear. Fogging problems can be mitigated by choosing glasses that are big enough to allow a significant amount of airflow behind the lens. A pair that fits too close to the face is much more likely to fog than one that fits correctly. In addition to finding the right size, adjustable or interchangeable nose pads are an excellent fog-fighting feature because they allow you to position your eyewear the appropriate distance from your face. HELMET COMPATIBILITY Not everyone who wears RYDERS EYEWEAR® uses them for helmet sports, but if you do wear a helmet, choose a pair of glasses that won’t interfere with straps, retention devices or the helmet itself.
Airflow also changes once your helmet is on, so make sure that your glasses have enough breathing room when worn with a helmet. Both airflow and helmet interference problems can be dealt with by using adjustable temple tips because they allow you to angle the frame for ventilation, and can be manually formed to fit around straps, retention devices and helmet edges.
LENS COVERAGE Airflow behind the lens is as important as lens coverage if you want top performance from your eyewear. These factors can work against one another so it’s important to find the balance that best meets your needs. Protection from sunlight is just one of the reasons that most cyclists and outdoor athletes choose performance eyewear. Wind, dust, and other environmental hazards are important considerations, so make sure that you choose a lens that is big enough to effectively block all of the elements, and a frame that provides adequate breathing room for a performance fit.

One-size-fits-all often doesn’t apply to performance gear. And when it comes to designing for women, ‘shrink it and pink it’ is not our philosophy. Though there are certainly many frames that fit well on both men and women, there are some differences that simply can’t be ignored. Our research revealed that there are few options available for women who prefer a more fashion-oriented look, without compromising on performance. Traditionally, performance frames have featured very technical and often masculine styling that doesn’t appeal to all women. Narrower fits, shorter temple tips and more organically-shaped frames with adjustable components and technical lenses are the characteristics that define the RYDERS® Women’s Collection.

Until now, most semi-rim sport glasses have been variations on a standard design—a frame across the top of the lens with the bottom edge of the lens exposed. We’ve taken this concept and flipped it on its head. And we haven’t done it just to be different. We recognized that despite the practical applications of traditional semi-rims, there were some obvious opportunities for improvement. FOG RESISTANCE Hot air rises, so the warm, humid air from your face needs to be able to escape over the top of your lens if you want to avoid fogging. A frame can block this airflow, causing the lens to fog.
It can even collect moisture that may later drip down the back of the lens. By removing the top of the frame, the humidity can rise and escape without interruption.
FIELD OF VISION In many sports we find ourselves looking down through the bottom of our lenses (to pick up a ball for example) so a traditional semi-rim makes sense for these activities. When cycling, however, we often look through the upper half of the lens because of our body position. By removing the top of the frame we expand and improve our field of vision. IMPACT PROTECTION Since the upper frame contributes to fogging and limits our field of vision, why not just remove the frame altogether to produce a conventional rimless shield? Because there’s another hazard associated with fast-forward outdoor activities—crashing.
When compared to a frame, the bottom edge of a lens is far more likely to cut your face in the event of a crash. By running the frame along the bottom of the lens, we improve protection while increasing the overall strength and performance of the eyewear.

For over 30 years, RYDERS has been generating solutions to this dilemma, always sourcing the most suitable lens technologies from around the world. We eventually decided that simply obtaining the best available technologies wasn’t enough. Sure, it’s what all of the other top sports eyewear brands were doing, but as good as these lenses were, they introduced too many limitations in terms of what they could accomplish. In an attempt to redefine the action sports lens and push the boundaries of what was possible, we approached the company dedicated to sun lenses, Essilor® Sun Solution™, the perfect partner for RYDERS on this project.
This relationship with Essilor® Sun Solution™ is unprecedented in that our collaboration with their engineering team has allowed us to combine a unique assortment of proprietary technologies into a lens that is tuned perfectly for the most performance-oriented RYDERS customers. The initial project name was The Superlens. It may not have been the most creative name in the world, but it got straight to the point as we challenged Essilor® Sun Solution™ to engineer a lens like no other. Our 30+ years of experience in cycling and action sports was instrumental in the development of our extensive list of crtiera.
The lens needed to constantly adapt to its environment, dramatically boost perception of specific colours, and provide premium fog-resistance. We needed crystal clear optics, light weight, extreme impact resistance, 100% UV protection and the most state-of-the-art coatings and finishes available. The result is the FYRE™ lens and it is quite simply the greatest lens we have ever experienced. No bull. No hype.
*VLT = Visible Light Transmission **MLV mirrors will affect the visible light transmission of FYRE™ lenses by up to 10%, depending on the colour. MULTI-LAYER VARIA™ MIRROR (MLV MIRROR) Mirror coatings on the photochromic lenses of other brands reflect away much of the light that is needed to activate their photosensitive properties. The remarkable efficiency of the patented MLV Mirror allows the E-SUNTM VARIATM photochromic lens to perform at its full potential. THE FIVE MOST INNOVATIVE ADVANCEMENTS IN SPORTS OPTICS PACKED INTO ONE LENS NXT® LENS Developed over a period of 12 years for military applications, NXT® is an Essilor® Sun SolutionTM proprietary performance polymer which was originally engineered for fighter jet canopies and the windshields of military helicopters.
It provides extreme impact resistance and superior optics.
E-SUN VARIA™ This photochromic lens technology provides RYDERS FYRETM lenses with an incredibly wide range from light to dark—category 1 to category 3. And it’s not just the range that’s impressive. The E-SUN VARIATM lens responds very quickly and reliably, no matter what the temperature, and it actually changes the colour of the lenses throughout their range instead of simply getting darker or lighter. This allows them to shift from a tint that has advantages in the dark, to a different, more suitable tone when conditions are bright. COLOUR BOOST As the lens darkens, its unique chemistry dramatically enhances your perception of primary colours, providing faster colour recognition and more defined colours for a vibrant, crystal clear view of the world around you.
antiFOG It really doesn’t matter how many cutting edge technologies are included in a lens, if it fogs up it’s all for naught. RYDERS premium antiFOG will stave off condensation so you can enjoy all of the other benefits of the lens without the hazardous distraction of fog.

A stylish fusion of high-tech materials with a nod to the past.
Those of us who have been riding MTB since the early days certainly remember the innovations that pushed our sport to the next level. We’re not talking about eliminating chainrings and widening our bars. We’re talking about products that absolutely changed the way we rode the trails—ones that reshaped our ideas of what was possible on a bike. Most early suspension forks added a lot of weight with few performance benefits. But there was a time in the 90’s when suspension forks started to really work. Suddenly, we were picking fast lines and moving through the trails with real speed. Mountain biking was in the midst of a serious revolution, and those of us who were around to experience this dramatic shift will always hold those forks of the past close to our hearts.
As a nod to this important progression in our sport’s evolution, many of the metals in our Composite Collection have been anodized to exactly match the stanchion colours of a few unforgettable suspension forks. Using a combination of Grilamid® TR90, optical-grade stainless steel and magnesium aluminide, all the stops were pulled out on this collection when it comes to quality, producing some of the most extraordinary frames to date in sports optics. They can be tuned to fit your face because of their wire-core components and they all have rim locks for those who want to add prescription lenses.
The lenses have all of the characteristics of our Core lenses: 100% UV400 protection; optically correct; a hydrophobic and scratch-resistant coating; and maximum impact protection—only we’ve added a premium AR coating to the back of the lens to boost the optics and increase protection from harmful light should it make its way around the frame and bounce off the back of the lens. MAGNESIUM ALUMINIDE An intermetallic compound that is stronger and lighter than regular aluminum, magnesium aluminide is the frame material of the Pello and is used alongside TR90 in the Pass and Watt models. STAINLESS STEEL Used along with TR90 in the Boundary, Flavelle, Zevier, and Giv models, stainless steel is extremely strong and corrosion-resistant.
GRILAMID® TR90 Grilamid® TR90 is without question the ideal frame material for sports eyewear because it’s highly flexible, ultra-durable and extremely lightweight. When combined with the above-mentioned premium metals, it produces a fashion-forward look with action-sport performance. COMPOSITE COLLECTION 59 58

It features a fog-fighting, double-layer clear lens that works like a double pane window, creating a barrier between the cooler outside air and the humid inside air.
For further fog resistance, a coating has been applied to the back of the lens to absorb moisture. Both of these features drastically reduce the opportunity for vapour to condense on the inside of the lens. Designed to meet the exact demands of MTB, the directional air intakes prevent breath vapour from entering the goggle at lower speeds while simultaneously drawing cool air and forcing it up through the open mesh on the top of the frame. TALLCAN OR SHORE—WHICH IS RIGHT FOR YOU? The Tallcan’s outriggers accommodate larger profile, DH helmets as well as trail/enduro helmets while the Shore’s outriggers are designed for smaller lids.
As the name would imply, the Tallcan also has a taller lens, a high-airflow mesh, and moisture-wicking foam versus the Shore’s shorter lens and higher-density foam. 2-LAYER CLEAR LENS R04147B MATTE BLACK with GLOSS WHITE 2-LAYER CLEAR LENS | R04113D MATTE RED with GLOSS WHITE 2-LAYER CLEAR LENS | R04113E 69 68

Unlike goggles from other brands, this is not a re-badged snow or moto goggle. The frame isn’t quite as tall as most moto and snow goggles.
This eliminates the common nose plugging issue that happens when you cram big goggles into smaller mountain bike helmets. It also features an impact-resistant, fog fighting, double-layer lens coupled with specially-designed intakes to bring in fresh air from the front while blocking breath vapour from below.

ALEX HOEHN elevate khs pro cycling team The best material on the planet for sports eyewear. Grilamid® TR90 is without question the ideal frame material for sports eyewear. It’s highly flexible, ultra-durable and extremely lightweight, making our frames very accommodating, comfortable, safe, and long-lasting. It’s like all of the positive attributes of a yogi, a tank, and your grandma packed into one incredible material. Grilamid TR90 ULTRA-DURABLE TR90’s durability is a by-product of its flexibility. A highly flexible frame is less likely to break under stress or impact than a more rigid frame.
ULTRA-FLEXIBLE The flexibility of our TR90 frames is a big reason why they’re so comfortable, durable, and safe—ideal for almost any athletic endeavour. HYDROPHILIC COMPONENTS All of our TR90 frames have hydrophilic nose pads and our most technical designs have hydrophilic temple pads. The material we use is so effective that it actually grips better when it’s wet. ULTRA-LIGHTWEIGHT Fewer grams on your face can make a big difference in comfort, especially when wearing your eyewear for long periods of time.
ADJUSTABLE COMPONENTS Adjustable nose pads and temple tips allow you to customize the fit of your glasses for comfort and stability.
These components are also used for fine-tuning the amount of airflow behind the lens, keeping your face cool and combating fogging. 75 74

We took the same material that is used in bulletproof glass and astronaut helmets, then injected it into moulds that are perfectly formed for optical clarity, mitigating any concerns of distortion or impact-resistance. But it’s not the material on its own that makes for great sport lenses. The manufacturing methods, tints, finishing, coatings, and even how the lenses fit into their frames each play an important role in the optical quality, clarity, and durability of a polycarbonate lens.
All RYDERS® lenses use premium coatings and finely-tuned tints that are rigorously tested, not only for their optics but also for their durability, both in the lab and the real world. Engineered specifically for the needs of endurance athletes, the high standards of these lenses are just our starting point. Polarized, veloPOLAR™ and antiFOG lenses have all of the attributes listed here, plus their signature features to elevate their performance. Core lenses OPTICALLY CORRECT All RYDERS lenses are decentered and tapered, making them optically correct by eliminating distortion that contributes to eye fatigue.
100% UV PROTECTION Every RYDERS Polycarbonate lens provides 100% protection from UVA, UVB, UVC + potentially harmful, high-energy light to 400nm. MAXIMUM IMPACT RESISTANCE Polycarbonate is extremely strong and considerably more flexible than many lens materials. Unlike those made of more brittle materials, RYDERS lenses won’t break into dangerous little shards on impact. You don’t need to be an ophthalmologist to understand why that’s important. SCRATCH-RESISTANT HARD COATING This coating makes the lenses many times more scratch-resistant than polycarbonate on its own. We use the best hard coatings in the industry.
HYDROPHOBIC + OLEOPHOBIC COATING An altogether misleading name, this coating isn’t nearly as scared of water as water is of the coating. In fact, water runs away at first contact leaving clear lines of sight that are free from large drops and water marks. It also makes the lenses extremely easy to clean and provides additional scratch resistance. 77 76
