Monza brings modern technology to vintage sunglass shape

Petrol Eyewear introduced the Monza, an Italian-designed polarized driving sunglass that combines a lightweight and comfortable frame with Petrol's best-in-class polarized VisoChromatic lenses. Now available in two frame finishes -- gloss black with a grey marble pattern interior, and gloss brown with a woodgrain pattern interior -- the Monza features an 8-base bronze polarized polycarbonate lens with a full array of coatings that help protect both the wearer's vision and the lens itself.

Petrol VisoChromatic technology automatically adjusts lens darkness to surrounding light conditions, from 29% to 9% visible light transmission in the Monza. Unlike ordinary light-transitioning lenses that react only to ultraviolet light (UV), Petrol VisoChromatics react to both UV and visible light, allowing them to partially darken behind UV-blocking car windshields. This results in glare-cutting comfort while driving, and an even darker lens for full-sun activity outside the car.

In their fully darkened state, the lenses provide 100% protection from harmful UV rays (absorption to 400 nanometers) and dramatically reduce the level of damaging, high-intensity visible light or blue light passing through the lens.

This not only protects the eye, but also sharpens the wearer's vision by removing the haze-like effect of scattered, high-intensity light waves. Petrol achieves these benefits while still maintaining color recognition and meeting all international standards for a transitioning Category 2-3 driving lens. Optically correct and distortion-free, Monza lenses are individually cast and vacuum-coated in France.

In addition to polarization and light-transitioning features, every Monza lens has the added benefit of Petrol's signature Repelium coatings:
• Dual-sided hydrophobic/oliophobic coating that resists fogging and fingerprints
• Dual-sided scratch coating, for six-times greater scratch-resistance than uncoated polycarbonate lenses
• An anti-reflective treatment on the inside surface that eliminates eye strain-inducing "bounce-back" glare

Monza frames are composed of Grilamid TR-90, a shape-retaining plastic polymer that is highly resistant to stress cracking, UV exposure and extreme temperatures.

Established in 2007, Petrol Eyewear is a manufacturer of premium quality polarized driving sunglasses. Headquartered in Huntington Beach, Calif., Petrol is a subsidiary of TSW, a leading producer of alloy wheels with a 30-year history of incorporating race-inspired technology into everyday driving.
