LST Lenses

LST- Light Stabilizing Technology for sports prescription sunglassesWHAT IS THE LIGHT STABILIZING TECHNOLOGY?

LST works like a colour equaliser, enhancing the perception of pure primary colours. This results in an improved colour perception and high contrast vision. Perfect for sports that takes you in and out of shaded areas as it simultaneously harmonises light fluctuations caused by the interplay of light and shadow.

  • Less eye stress and better vision for your sport
  • Constant, high contrast vision
  • Improved natural colour perception
  • Enhancement of details and contours
  • Equal light harmonization
  • Reducing light to a comfortable level without taking away the beauty of colours

LST stands for optimized light transmission and built-in color equalizer. No matter which light condition, the LST technology developed by adidas sport eyewear provides a constant view with contrast enhancement, maximum peripheral view and natural colors.

This special lens technology intensifies contrasts and simultaneously harmonizes light fluctuations caused by the interplay of light and shadow. Eye fatigue is prevented and improves the power of concentration ensuring top sporting performance.

Variotuned and LST Variotuned

The Vario lenses have the ability to automatically change from a crystal clear to dark tint, featuring a transmission range from 89% to 14%. Utilising their inaction technology, the wafer inlay is injected directly into the lens allowing the Vario lens to automatically adapt to natural lighting conditions (UV radiation), at a speed that rivals that of the best on the market. The adidas sport eyewear Vario lens offers maximum longevity and durability, thanks to the use of their ingenious injection technology.
