Bigatmo pilot sunglasses, with their sculptured titanium frames and super tough NXT lenses are light and comfortable to wear under headsets, deliver true colour perception and perfect clarity of vision. They come wrapped up in five stunning understated designs by an award winning British designer.
Tested and Proven Best Lens Performance
Bigatmo's patented Next Generation NXT®/Trivex® urethane material forms the core of all sunglasses’ lenses. NXT® was formulated in the early 1990s for new generation attack helicopter windshields. It has great impact resistance, is lightweight and has superior optics.
Bigatmo NXT®/Trivex® optical lenses are the next stage in its evolution. They’re formed in glass moulds with long, carefully controlled curing times, producing lenses with very low internal stresses, improving the optical quality of the lens. They also constitute the strongest lens material on the market, passing ANSI’s High-Velocity Impact Test; a stringent test where 1/4-inch steel spheres are fired at the lens at a velocity of 150 feet-per-second. If an NXT®/Trivex® lens receives an impact, the material returns to its original shape with virtually no residual distortion.
Three Lens Options
Whilst NXT®/Trivex® is the core material of all Bigatmo sunglasses’ lenses, there are three different lens options to suit your lifestyle.
Bigatmo Alutra lenses deliver a punchy view of the world with excellent vibrant colour acuity and high definition optics. The photochromic core is perfect for when you’re out and about moving between sun and shade, and also allows you to comfortably read instrument panels in high contrast environments like the flight deck when flying, or the dashboard when driving.
Bigatmo Zeolite lenses use advanced Light Management Technology to enhance colours by filtering out the wavelengths that fall between red, blue and green – the primary colours in which we see. Your eyes receive more specific colour information improving overall image sharpness and clarity.
Bigatmo Polarized lenses have the same colour enhancing technology as our Zeolite lenses, together with a polarizing filter which dramatically reduces glare from roads, snow, sea and sand, revealing all kinds of hidden details and textures in High Definition. Not generally considered suitable for aviation due to potential conflict with polarized aircraft instrument screens.
