Hobie® Polarized Color Balance
See Colors the way they are meant to be seen. Hobie® lenses allow our eyes to transmit clear “Color messages” to our brain. These messages give us the ability to see clearly and vividly, by eliminating harsh, bright glare that is transmitted off of any reflective surfaces. All Hobie® styles feature a proprietary Polarized filter, first developed in the 80’s by the late Hobie Alter.
