The VLD’s frameless design provides an unprecedented level of protection and field of view, while maintaining excellent head retention and lightweight. The VLD employs the same proven and patented earpiece technology and design as the standard Gen1, providing outstanding comfort when worn with helmets, over-the-ear headsets or hearing protection.Once you wear the VLD, you’ll never want to use any other eye protection! If you’ve ever used a helmet visor, one of the first things you experience is the seemingly limitless field of view. That’s what the VLD brings in a pair of glasses!

The VLD was designed specifically to integrate well with helmets, which is an important feature when cycling. A vertical field of view is also a critical performance attribute to cycling eyewear and there’s nothing worse than having your vision obstructed by sunglass frames when looking up and far down your line. This is why we designed the VLD lens to have a maximum vertical and horizontal field of view. These features combined with the most advanced cycling-specific lenses provide cyclists with an unmatched set of performance eyewear.

Patented Conformable Earpiece Technology
Arclite has invented patented conformable earpiece technology that solves the age-old problem of pain and discomfort behind the ears when glasses are worn with helmets and headsets! Arclite’s earpieces bend, flex, twist and rotate to give you that custom comfort when wearing our eyewear with or without headgear.
Protecting your eyes and vision can be a life and death matter! So why leave the level of your eye protection to chance? Arclite’s products exceed the U.S. military ballistics standards for eyewear, the highest within industry.
Our eyewear products are proudly designed, molded, assembled and sewn in the U.S. by hard working Americans! This is something hard to find within industry today and we’re proud to be one of the very few companies to do it! Our eyewear products are Buy American Act and Berry Amendment compliant!
Arclite lenses incorporate and combine the latest and greatest optical technologies, combinations and performance that you won’t find with other eyewear brands. Lens features such as anti-fog, anti-scratch, hydrophobic, anti-reflective, photochromic, high contrast and multi-layer color mirror are all features you can find combined together in Arclite lenses
Field of View
Our eyes allow us to gather and process essential visual information in everyday life! When we engage in activities such as motorsports, military and tactical operations and cycling, the amount of visual information, especially in the peripheral directions, has a direct impact on our performance and safety. That’s why Arclite eyewear products have an unprecedented amount of horizontal and vertical field of view.
Good vision is critical for active outdoor activities and it is vital that the quality of our visual information is optimized. Arclite lenses have optical performance and clarity that stands out among the competition. Your eyes will thank you for wearing Arclites when you experience far less eye-strain and eye-fatigue.
Aerospace Titanium Alloy and Advanced Engineering Polymers
High performance eyewear requires high performance advanced materials. Arclite frames and lenses are made of aerospace titanium alloys, high molecular weight polymers and other advanced materials that give our products the highest level of functionality, performance and durability.
Arclite products have been dropped, bent, twisted, stepped on, crashed, run over and hit by high-velocity projectiles, and have survived! Our products can take whatever you can dish out and they will be there to serve you day after day.
Laser Etched Lenses
We feel that the details make a difference and we go that extra mile to put finishing touches on our products. We’re proud of what we produce, which is why we laser etch our lenses! Laser engraving will last along with our very long product lifespan.
