ALTERA® STEALTH EYEWEAR
Everything starts from a necessity.
Altera® creates Stealth, high-performance eyewear collection designed for multi disciplined sports. The frames incorporate aerospace-inspired leading edge design. Conceived to fit various designs — differing in shape and lens treatment, they provide multi-sport athletes with advanced, highperformance technology. An additional design makes it possible to fit any prescription lenses, by integrating the innovative Kinetic System, which can adapt a 6 base frame into a 4 base frame.
Can one tool meet different needs?
Grilamid TR90 frame treated with FlextendTM is impact resistant and can withstand most environmental conditions, chemical agents and high temperature deformation. Extraordinarily light (StealthTM model weighs 17 grams), it is the perfect eyewear solution for sports.

It’s about customization. It’s about aptitude, opportunity, optimization. But above all, it’s about necessity. Each METAMORPH lens can be customized with specific treatments to guarantee outstanding vision and comfort:
• ANTI-REFLECTIVE COATING – to reduce reflective light;
• HYDROPHOBIC COATING – to make the surface water-repellent and prevent dust particles from clinging to the lenses;
• OLEOPHOBIC COATING – easy-to-clean lenses;
• SEAWATER – to prevent damages from salt water.
The frame can fit lenses that can be equipped with Safety Bumper, enhancing the resistance to accidental impacts.
ALTERA® KINETIC SYSTEM
The innovative Kinetic System is conceived for sport frames that need to fit prescription lenses. Thanks to ALTERA® KINETIC SYSTEM, the original Altera® Stealth frame can fit any prescription lenses. The Kinetic System can adapt a 6 base frame into a 4 base frame, making it possible to center prescription lenses, while providing the comfort of the 6 base frame enveloping design.
