Elevate Your Performance! Volume#2 ImpactX


ImpactX lenses are made by photochromic particles which provide unique climatic management technology. Getting dark from low to high light transmission within few seconds and tailored to reach a custom color from an initial clear state, ImpactX® lenses are available in 4 different colors and with the Laser mirrored coating ( Black and Laser Black, Red and Laser Red, Laser Brown, Laser Purple). ImpactX® lenses enhance contrast , even in darker conditions, they will improve visual acuity and depth perception while providing unparalleled eye protection. Unlike most photochromic standard lenses, ImpactX® lenses are fused in the mass of the polymer itself with a complex manufacturing process, making it more resistant and clearly optically superior to most competitors.


ImpactX is Rudy Project's proprietary Trivex formulation. It was originally developed for the Military and Aerospace, with safety, durability and comfort in mind. In addition to being the strongest, most durable and lightest material, ImpactX also provides optimal vision. With an Abbe value of 45, only Cr39 and Glass rate higher. ImpactX has an Index of refraction of 1.53, which puts it into a "mid index" category, so it's thinner and lighter than CR-39.


ImpactX encompasses all of the best qualities in one lens:



Optimal vision - Highest Abbe value (45) of any mid/high index

Superior comfort - Lightest material - 8% lighter than poly, 16% lighter than CR-39 and 19% lighter than Hi index

1.53 Index of refraction

Safety and durability - Most impact resistant material available



With all those qualities, it's no wonder why Rudy Project selected ImpactX as the  material for our unique Photochromic lenses.


Revolutionary Technology

ImpactX combines the best in class optics with the most impact resistant material, and Rudy Project's revolutionary photochromic technology. Making ImpactX the most durable photochromic lens available. You don't have to worry about cracking, crazing or oxidization. ImpactX lenses will stand the test of time. On top of that, ImpactX unique colors are designed to enhance vision and to adapt to all weather, lighting conditions and environments.
