The 500 Series is a perfect piece of equipment for the Shooting and Archery enthusiast. This exciting new platform molded from high-grade stainless steel benefits from years of frame-design experience. In 2017 the 500 Series is available with an upgraded frame architecture using Carbon Fiber. The frame design provides a completely unobstructed sight picture and a perfectly balanced geometry that reduces perceived weight. The frame in fact is a mere 1.25oz. This feather-weight design provides all-day comfort. The 500 Series integrates the Pilla signature “fork” temple tip made of a high performance rubber called Megol. The “fork” tip is easily adjusted by bending the tips to contour the shooters head. When properly adjusted the weight of the nose bridge is almost completely erased.
The 500 series Rx is available in two dual lens models, the 540 and the 580.
The 540 is a Base 4 Frame architecture specifically designed for corrective use. This frame is flatter than the 580 and provides a perfect platform for those in need of high correction. We have introduced a significant level of corrective capability in this design.
The 580 is an excellent choice for the athlete looking for a more traditional design that is completely interchangeable. The 580 is fit with ColorTrast lenses by ZEISS. This is model is also available with full prescriptive lenses.
The Stainless Fork option in the 540/580/560 is available as an interchangeable model. This is a heavy duty frame design. The fork temple suspends the front of the frame to lighten the felt weight on the nose for all day comfort.
The Carbon Fiber Fork is available in all 3 models, 540/560/580. The Carbon fiber design is a super light weight options adding performance to the model range.
The 540/580 frame chassis is a fully optimized prescriptive solution. Unique to this design is a visual experience not found in any dual lens frame styles. The nose architecture is built to sit on the face reducing the eyes perceptive awareness of the nose. This design will accommodate any level of corrective need. Pilla offers the following options at the time of order:
Anti-Reflective - This coating reduces glare off the lens surface and is highly recommended with higher transmittance lenses and inserts.
Bifocal - Flat top bifocals, fit to the lens with a minimal registration of the bifocal so the “reader” does not get in the way of the athlete's vision.
Progressive - Multifocal lenses that accommodate both near and far sighted vision without seeing any line in the lens. Recommended only if you utilize progressive lenses in your everyday glasses or current sports glasses.
Hi-Index - This option reduces the weight and thickness of the lens in high corrective needs. It is necessary for individuals requiring a level of correction over +/– 2.00.
