Who else but Lazer can combine magnets and eyewear for a successful combination...the Magneto eyewear brings you the ultimate form of comfort when it comes to sunglasses. Due to an innovative and unique helmet/sunglass interface, the Magneto works together with the helmet to create a completely new experience. Because the eyewear has no traditional temples, it doesn’t create any pressure points, making it comfortable, even during long rides. The magnets in the helmet tabs connect with 2 Magclips that attach to your forward most helmet strap. Moving the Magclips up or down creates a custom fit, while pushing the Magneto forward or backward creates distance between the eyewear and the face. When you don’t want the Magneto on your face, the clever MagDoc system provides a way for you to install the sunglasses on your helmet.
From the box, the eyewear comes equipped with one of the following two options, so there's an option for any kind of weather:
- 3 interchangeable lenses (mirrored lens and 2 additional lenses)
- A Crystal Photochromic or Melanin Photochromic lens
Magneto is an award-winning and revolutionary sunglass/helmet interface that offers the user improved comfort and superior fit. Recognizing that traditional sunglass temples cause trouble for some wearers both in terms of fit, contact with the helmet’s retention system, and added pressure to the side of the head at the contact points, Lazer has eliminated these temple pieces and replaced them with a clever magnetic attachment system. The helmet strap features two clips with a small piece of rubber-coated metal at the center, this allows for an attachment with magnets that are imbedded in two short tabs that connect to the sunglass lens.
The result is a secure fit of the lens on the face but with the ability for adjustment both up and down and forwards and backwards.
With Magneto in use there, is no possibility for interference of the Rollsys retention system and the side of the head is left unobstructed to keep cool. The absence of normal sunglass temples also results in very little pressure on the user’s head, which eliminates headaches and fatigue during a long day in the saddle. Magneto is available as both an interchangeable piece with three different lens options or as a photochromatic piece with lenses that adapt automatically to varying light conditions. For off the bike use, there are standard sunglass temples included, allowing you to take Magneto with you wherever you go.
The lenses of the eyewear are easy to remove, allowing you to install the lens you need for the type of weather and sunlight outside.
Select styles of the Lazer eyewear range offer photochromic lenses that change color automatically based on varying light conditions. As the sunlight becomes more intense the lenses change from a light color to a dark color. Total lens change occurs in 7 seconds. Alternatively the lenses return to a more translucent state within 1.5 min. from being removed from sunlight.
Light transmission: 75% to 25%
Usage: variable low to mid sunglight
Along with a standard photochromic lens, Lazer is excited to launch a photochromic lens that is injected with synthetic Melanin. Melanin is found in your skin, eyes and hair and is the body’s natural defense against harmful UV rays. The use of synthetic melanin in our sunglass lenses gives the same effect as using 140spf sun tan lotion but for your eyes. The result is that Lazer Melanin Photochromic lenses block 100% of UVA, UVB and UV400 rays while still changing colors automatically so that you can use one pair of sunglasses all day long in a vast range of light conditions.
Light transmission: 31% to 12%
Usage: Variable mid to full sunlight
Utilizing a proprietary lens design from Carl Zeiss Vision the area of distortion free optics is increased by 20% compared to standard decentered lenses used by most other sport optics brands. The result is superior peripheral vision to better judge obstacles around you.
All the Lazer eyewear uses Hydrophilic Rubber temples and nosepieces to increase grip when wet, thus helping to keep the eyewear in place during exercise on a hot day.
