■Natural Colors with High Contrast

While suppressing changes in color, it cuts off light of a specific wavelength that interferes with visual perception. Achieved a clear and natural view.



■Optical Performance

The manufacturing process of the NXT lens is Intelcast's proprietary technology, which is almost finished handmade one by one. Careful finishing prevents distortion of the lens that often occurs in mass production. In addition, NXT is a material that does not easily cause color bleeding (chromatic aberration), and when used as a lens, secures a clear view.

■ Strength

NXT is a material created by the US Army's ultra-lightweight protector development project, and meets the strict criteria that crack and non-distortion accurate vision can be achieved even under high impact such as bullets.
