For those requiring high degree of prescriptive power.
This platform is molded from high-grade stainless steel. The frame design provides a completely unobstructed sight picture and a perfectly balanced geometry that reduces perceived weight. When properly adjusted the weight of the nose bridge is almost completely erased.
EXPLORE THE 500 SERIES
The frames in the 500 series are made of a very resilient stainless steel chassis. The design is a “Vice” where the frame acts as a large spring to hold the lenses in the frame. The frame design provides a completely unobstructed sight picture and a perfectly balanced geometry that reduces perceived weight. This model has a narrow distance between the lenses to provide an optimal sight picture for athletes looking across the nose.
The 500 Series uses a high performance rubber fork design that has adjustable temple tips.
The fork of the frame can be adjusted to contour to the head. The fork is adjustable up and down to provide 4 points of contact that help levitate the frame off the nose and distribute and frame weight even across the head.
Interchangeable Rx lenses
The 500 Series is a model we use for prescriptive needs. We have both a 580 and 540 model. The 580 is very Rx friendly fitting most prescriptive needs while the 540 is engineered for athletes requiring a higher level of correction and a Base 4 design.
The 500 Series uses a twin nose pad design. These two nose pads are a super supple silicone composite that provides a comfortable wear for all day use. The pads are attached to a nasal tree that can be adjusted left and right by hand to widen or narrow the fit of the nose.
Each lens in the 500 Series is fully interchangeable. The Pilla engineered design uses a “lens anchor” which is a shadow box cut out on the nasal and temporal side of the lens. The temple side of the frame is “Unhooked” from the lens and then slide out of the nasal attachment. To reattach the lens you insert the lens into the nasal side and then clip the temporal side in.
