Rapid Eyewear’s new British-designed aviators combine strength, style, comfort and cutting edge lens technology to provide you with the ultimate sunglasses for pilots. Available with red or grey lenses.
Altius have a build quality and feature list that makes them outstanding value for money when compared to alternative high-end brands.
Manufactured from a tough nickel alloy, the top quality Altius frame is extremely robust, with solid hinges that do not exhibit the slop associated with cheaper sunglasses. Adjustable nose pads and rubber side arm extensions enhance comfort levels. Finished in an attractive gun metal grey colour. The side arms are indented to ensure they fit comfortably beneath a headset.
Utilising Rapid Eyewear’s Multi Layer technology, Altius Category 2 lenses are packed with features. Made from impact resistant polycarbonate, the lenses are finished with a flash mirror coating that makes them look very attractive whilst reducing extreme light that can cause problems at altitude.
The Altius lenses have a hard coating to make them as scratch resistant as possible. They also benefit from hydrophobic and oleophobic coatings, which resist grease and water.
By filtering blue light from the spectrum, Altius lenses improve depth perception and contrast, making it easier to judge the terrain and sky ahead and below.

Rapid Eyewear sunglasses conform to EN1836 British and European Standards for sunglasses. They offer 100% UVA / UVB protection. They also conform to US Z80.3.
