Founded on supplying military forces and law enforcement personnel with top-of-the-line ballistic eyewear, Wiley X continues to hold safety as our priority, adopting this approach for our entire line and building eyewear with the highest levels of protection available.
ANSI HIGH VELOCITY IMPACT AND VO BALLISTIC PROTECTION
All Wiley X ANSI-rated frames and lenses must withstand the impact of a .25” diameter steel ball. For spectacles the projectile must be traveling 150fps and for a goggle 250fps.
Several Wiley X eyewear models are tested to V0 ballistics which consists of a spectacle frame and lens being impacted with a .15 caliber projectile traveling 640-725fps depending on Mil-Standard and model, or a goggle frame and lens with a .22 caliber projectile traveling 550-590fps depending on Mil-Standard and model. This test is meant to simulate shrapnel that may be encountered on the battlefield.
ANSI HIGH MASS IMPACT PROTECTION
Wiley X ANSI-rated frames and lenses must withstand the impact of a 1.1lb. projectile dropped from a height of 50” to ensure your eyes are protected from unexpected blunt force impacts.
Shatterproof lenses and frames provide protection from falling objects.
ASTM F803 STANDARDS
Our Youth Force® Sport series meets the highest ASTM F803 standards for safety and clarity, with the fit and durability to withstand the rigors of youth sports.
