Glass wasn't strong enough. Polycarbonate wasn't clear enough. Neither material allowed for adequate customization of tints and Light Transmission Levels. So we set out to develop our own, completely new polarized lens material. Kaenon's proprietary SR-91 is the only polarized lens that combines the superior optical quality of the finest glass and the lightest weight, strength and impact resistance of polycarbonate. Only the best properties. No compromises. No short-cuts.
Kaenon Polarized isn't restricted by many rules. However, one strict rule has remained unbroken since Kaenon's inception, only the best polarized lens can be housed within a Kaenon frame. SR-91 is the only lens material on the planet that exceeds Kaenon's standards. The fusion of the SR-91 lens material and our proprietary Glare 86 polarizing element create an uncompromising combination of crisp optical clarity, up to 99.9% glare reduction, ultra-light weight, strong impact-resistance, and superior scratch-resistance. The unique result is a polarized lens that delivers accurate depth-perception, true color representation, and enhanced detail definition.
Treating the ultimate polarized lens would not be complete without the best lens coatings and treatments available. Each of the coatings is added to our SR-91¬Æ lens in order to enhance your visual experience and performance.

Our grey tint is a neutral grey. It is not distorted by adding extra colors such as yellow, blue or green. Rather, our grey tint is designed to provide you the m ost natural view without altering any color perception.
