Wiley X Technology
ANSI high mass impact test
Wiley X ANSI tested frames and lenses must withstand the weight of a 1.1 lb. pointed projectile dropped from a height of 50" to ensure that your eyes are protected from unexpected impacts.
ANSI high velocity impact
Frames and lenses must withstand the impact of a .25" diameter steel ball fired at 150 fps (ANSI) or .15 projectiles fired at 640-660 fps (spectacle VO Ballistic). Goggles must withstand .22 projectiles fired at a rate of 550-560 fps. This ensures our lenses and frames are practically indestructible.
Facial cavity™ seals
Fine dust and pollen, as well as wind, can cause long-term eye irritation, such as Dry Eye Syndrome. Peripheral light can also diminish optical clarity.
Wiley X patented removable soft foam FACIAL CAVITY™ SEALS block out even the finest irritants and peripheral light, protecting the eyes and allowing polarized lenses to perform at peak levels.
ASTM F803 standard
Our Youth Force® Sports Protective Eyewear meets the stringent ASTM F803 standard. To pass the High Velocity Impact Resistance test, the eyewear must withstand projectiles sized from 40 mm to 65.1 mm fired at a rate of 90 mph.
The F803 standard tests the strength of the frame and the strength and clarity of the lenses. Youth Force® styles are tested to the plano and prescription eyewear classification.
Youth Force® styles pass ASTM F803 testing for Soccer, Basketball, Racquetball, Squash, Badminton, Paddle Ball, Tennis and Handball.
