I bought a pair of RP Ekynox sunglasses (silver with laser blue lenses) on Friday and I have a question with regards to the Ekynox's lenses. There is a weird circular pattern on the outside of each lense. The shop only had 1 other pair of Ekynoxs (white with world champion strips) and this pair also had this. I'm curious as to what this pattern is. Is it a defect? The pattern is not visible while wearing the sunglasses, but it is visible to those looking at you.

Ride Hard,

I have noticed that too, on both racing red and laser blue lense. Believe it is done on purpose. No clue what the benefit is though..
I've sent RP an email to ask them about it - I'll post the replySS_MB-7

My guess is that it might be from a suction device used in the production process.

I've noticed it on mine only when I breath on the lenses to fog them to clean them. Try rubbing it out with the cleaning cloth.

I looked at my team issue and they have the blue mirrored lense but no swirl marks, I didn't breathe on them like the other guy though.
