THE TARGET IN PLAIN VIEW

If X-Kross could speak, it would tell you a lot.

EVERYONE IS UNIQUE BY:

  • different head structure
  • different visual sensitivity
  • different perspiration levels

EVERY SPORT IS UNIQUE BY:

  • different environmental parameters such as temperature, light, humidity and wind

SPORTING habits change as you get older. So too do SEEING habits. To meet all the individual requirements of people and sport, we have developed the X-KROSS sports eyewear concept. X-KROSS easily ad-justs to these changing habits- for a lifetime!

HOW YOU SEE THE WORLD...

... is how you move

Your head is embraced by the unique ar-chitecture of X-KROSS. These sports glas-ses sit in place with unanticipated ease, without slipping off or exerting pressure. The safety of your valuable eyes through good vision is guaranteed over extended periods of time in any situation. In develo-ping X-KROSS, we relied on German technology with its worldwide reputation. This paved the way for a sports glasses system that is fully flexible in considering the multi-functional needs of athletes.

THE TARGET IN PLAIN VIEW

If X-Kross could speak, it would tell you a lot.

Niels Bubel, an important member of our community and current German champion of the 50 km marathon, has summed up the com-plex topic „Vision for Sport“ in his own words.

Ever since I could walk, I have been dependent on glasses. X-KROSS are the first sports glasses that not only meet my personal requirements, but also become one with my body. These sports glasses have gradually become a true companion which I can rely on in any weather, meaning I start out the competition with a new self-confidence that I did not have earlier. For this, I am very grateful to the team at SZIOLS.

THE SZIOLS LENSES PORTFOLIO

ACM

Fog-free vision during sporting activities is one of the most prominent features of SZIOLS sports glasses. Sport makes you sweat, and quickly – even around the eyes! Inspired by functional clothing in sport, we have transferred the “breathing function” to lenses. The exceptional ACM technology, which keeps the front lenses almost 100% mist-free, was developed in collaboration with technicians in aerodynamics.

SPORTS & SWEAT

The sportswear industry has made great progress over the last two decades when it comes to breathable textiles. That said, sporting sun-glasses available on the market today seemed to have forgotten that you also sweat around the eyes, meaning moisture and heat build up in this area. It is inevitable that lenses will mist up.

APPLIED AERODYNAMICS

Our experiences in automobile design and aerodynamics gave us the simple yet revolutionary idea of simply applying the airflow principle to sports glasses. In collaboration with engineers, we developed a new ventilation system for sports glasses: The main categories of sporting activities are covered in four different function groups. Depending on requirements, the function can be changed quickly and effectively. From vigorous ventilation for sweat-inducing activities, through to wind pro-tection for fast sports, and temperature balancing capabilities of up to 80° degrees Celsius in winter, everything is interchangeable and can be used flexibly.

retina-shield

RETINA SHIELD is the sum of all quality features of SZIOLS functional lenses which guarantee perfect vision and the best protection without compromise. This means „protection for the retina“ and therefore the imaging organ in the eye which does all of the precision work.

The lens is the „filter“ between the environment and the eye and therefore the important interface between seeing and the subsequent reaction. It has two essential tasks. On the one hand, to protect the eye from mechani-cal influences such as, for example, dust, twigs, small stones, cold, etc.. And on the other hand, to support „vision“ as such by enhancing cont-rasts so that you can take in information more effectively and can the-refore react more quickly.

UV 400 FILTER

Filters damaging blue light and protects against UVA and UVB rays. Even with completely clear lenses!

COMFORT TINTING

The gradual tinting, darker at the top, lighter at the bottom, guarantees good glare protection from light from above and a clear vision of the ground, which often lies in shadow.

PRISM COMPENSATION

Due to the strong curvature of the lens, highly precise optical compensation is required to guarantee perfectly clear vision even at the edge regions.

X-KROSS KEY SYSTEM

Lightning-fast switchover without irritating fingerprints due to the key patent. Even with thick winter gloves, switchover is quick and simple.

LIGHT STABILISER

Quick changes between light and shadow (“dark wall” effect) are compensa-ted by the well-balanced tinting and enable continuous action.

IMPACT PROTECTION

Passed the shatter test. Almost indestructible lenses made from polycarbonate protect the eyes.

PHOTOCHROMATIC LENSES

Switchover unnecessary. The „Ferrari“ among lenses adapts to light conditions in an incredible 27 seconds.

HEAT/COLD-RESISTANT

Special compositions of the lens material make these independent of thermal influences.

OPTICAL INNER CLIP FOR GLASSES-WEARERS

Clear view up to +/- 15 diopters

In order to enable glasses wearers to take full advantage of all of the features of the X-KROSS system, we have developed a support clip into which corrective lenses can be inserted. It is quite large and rimless, which also gives an unobstructed view in peripheral field of vision (e.g. of other bikers in the peloton).

The function in which the clip is attached to the frame of the sports glasses from the outside is a unique feature on the worldwide market. The clip is held firmly in place for active use by the front pane. The advantage of this lies in the fact that it sits on the nose like a normal pair of glasses and al-lows more powerful lenses to be used. There is sufficient space for the eyelashes and enough room for ventilation to keep the glasses and the clip from fogging up, all the while ensuring full flexibility for any sports use in terms of ACM- Air Climate Management functions and shading.

Customized optical glazing

Anatomical as well as individual vision features are considered in glazing. For triathletes with very low sitting postures on their racing bikes, for example, we can manufacture an optical insert clip precisely designed with the elevated vision point in mind.

Multifocal glazing

Multifocal lenses for sport are generally ground somewhat more deeply. Hence you can quickly read your pulse
monitor while moving underway but without being annoyed by the reading section in the main field of view.

Sizes

Thanks to the Nylor glazing of the insert clip, it can theoretically be made in any shape. SZIOLS offers 3 different standard shapes that take the seating of the insert clip in the X-KROSS sports glasses in the various diopter ranges into account. Hence the clip is always perfectly seated in the frame..

... for a better view in sports

The optical insert clip has a unique large and rimless field of vision. The frontal insertion in the frame provides enough room for the eyelashes and for lenses up to +/-15 dpt (19° inclination) in power.

AFTER SPORTS ...

... an everyday glasses

Many people are reluctant to wear their expensive everyday glasses while playing sport. But obviously glasses wearers are always dependent on their lenses. We developed the AFTERSPORTS glasses precisely to fulfil this need. The support is a transparent wire yet extremely sturdy frame that is easily stowed in the sports equipment bag. Simply snap in the optical insert clip and the all-around sports glasses are ready to go.
