Nike® MAX Transitions®COLOR SCIENCE
Color adds to the advance functionality of the lens and depending on lighting situations, colors can enhance vision. Nike® MAX Transitions® adaptive sunglasses offers two specific tints, engineered precisely to enhance the visual details of the natural environment encountered during specific sports and activities.
Nike MAX Transitions/Golf Tint. The violet color is designed to improve the contour recognition on the greens and increase ball pop.
Nike MAX Transitions/Outdoor Tint. The green color brightens the shadows, increases contrast and enhances the visual spectrum in natural environments – like hiking and trails.

Nike MAX Transitions sunglasses are available in two of Nike’s most popular sunglass styles, the Show X2 and SQ.
Show X2. Nike’s advanced technology allows Show X2 to deliver grip, stability and comfort. Feature adjustable temples and an adjustable ventilated nose, the sunglass offers the highest level of stability and reduces fogging.
SQ. Inspired by the innovative design of the Nike SQ golf clubs, SQ provides wide coverage with minimal visual interference.
In addition to Show X2 and SQ, which are engineered to meet the highest expectations of sport performance, the Nike MAX Transitions lens is also offered as an accessory lens in styles Skylon Ace, Skylon Ace Pro and Show X2 Pro. All of which are polycarbonate material and, like all Nike and Transitions lenses, block 100 percent of UV rays.
