Ride Safe, Ride Smart: The Ultimate Guide to Caring for Your Naos Coated Lenses
Whether you're hitting the mountain bike trails or hitting the road, premium visibility can make all the difference. In order to protect your eyes from the sun, wind, and debris while you're out on your bike, it's essential to take care of your coated lenses. However, many cyclists make the mistake of using abrasive products such as alcohol wipes on their lenses, which can severely damage the coating.
When it comes to cleaning the outside of your coated lenses, the key is to use a gentle solution or simply some water. This will ensure that the coating on your lenses remains intact, providing maximum protection for your eyes. Avoid using abrasive household cleaning products or other harsh chemicals. Instead, opt for a microfiber cloth (our delivered pouches are microfiber in case you didn't know - you're welcome again 😎) with a cleaning solution specifically designed for coated lenses or simply with some tap water.
One of the most important things to keep in mind when caring for your coated lenses is the extremely fragile anti-fog coating on the inside of the lens. It is important to try and prevent the inside of the lens from getting dirty in the first place, if it does, the only safe way to clean it is with water and gently dry it with the provided micro-fiber cloth.
In addition to cleaning, it's also important to protect your coated lenses from scratches. This can be done by storing your sports eyewear in a protective case when not in use, and by being careful not to drop or bump them against hard surfaces. If you do happen to scratch your lenses, it's best to replace them rather than trying to buff the scratches out, as this can further damage the coating - see our spare lenses for more information.
In conclusion, taking care of your babies is essential for any cyclist, whether you're hitting the mountain bike trails or the road. By avoiding abrasive products, protecting your lenses from scratches, and storing them in their comfortable hard case, you can ensure that your coated lenses last for a long time and perform at their best while you're out having fun!
