Active vario shield – ultralight with photochromic lenses.
Highest performance for endurance sports – introducing active vario shield from uvex, our key sports eyewear innovation for 2012. Ultralight, perfectly ventilated, lenses automatically adapt to the light conditions and will not fog up.
The extremely light active shield and active vario shield sit perfectly on your face, and remain extremely comfortable, even during the longest runs and highest levels of activity, thanks to their soft, non-slip dual compound legs, individually adjustable nose pads and removable retention strap.
Lenses are coated with uvex supravision, the highly effective anti-fog technology which copes with changing temperatures, body heat and humidity, even during high physical exertion. The soft nosepiece takes moisture away from the face. uvex’s easy to clean technology sheds dirt. Muck and dust will not stick and water or sweat simply beads off, ensuring a good, clear view.
Stops for lens changes are now a thing of the past. active vario shield lenses feature photochromic technology. Reacts instantly to changing light conditions and automatically adjusts to the correct shade. uvex variomatic technology offers Level 1 to Level 3 sun protection, while always providing 100% UVA, UVB and UVC protection.

Rated 4 out of 5 by peayq great vario functionality. antifog? not so much...
my experience with these is not exactly extensive, but so far these seem like quality glasses, light, unobtrusive, with excellent vario functionality. the entire range from transparent (almost) to dark is very consistent and appropriate. alas I can't say the same about it's antifog feature — it works okay when you're moving and your face is well ventilated, but once you stop the fog kicks in rather fast. maybe that's because I use skate-style helmet that sits low and does not allow for extremely good air circulation... lenses are a bit tricky to clean from the inside because of the nosepiece shape. some manufacturers make pouches for glasses from the material that's suitable for cleaning, obviously that is not the case here — the pouch is made from some glossy kinda cloth that only smears the dirt around.
