The Igniter is a compact goggle with photochromic lenses so they can be used in all lighting conditions. The closed cell foam helps to create a wind free environment to eliminate eye tearing. The lenses are photochromic starting with a light tint (85% transmission rate) and transform to a medium grey (25% transmission rate) in bright UV light. The polycarbonate lenses are shatter resistant and come with an anti-fog coating.

Has there been any research on how durable polycarbonate lenses are to rocks or large bugs?
Im looking to buy eye protection but would like to know how "shatter proof" a polycarbonate lens really is. Will it stop a small rock? Do goggles have thicker lenses compared to riding glasses? Has there been any recorded instances of someone being hit in the eye while wearing one of these lenses because it broke?

For this question we went straight the experts at Bobster to get the best answer available for you. Here is their response :
There is research and testing done on polycarbonate lenses being shatter resistant and they are one of the best materials for eyewear lenses in terms of impact resistance.
- Has there been any research on how durable polycarbonate lenses are to rocks or large bugs?
RESPONSE: I think you would have a better chance being injured by being knocked off the bike by the impact than the impact on the lenses.
- I’m looking to buy eye protection but would like to know how "shatter proof" a polycarbonate lens really is.
RESPONSE: Please note these are not shatter proof but shatter resistant.
- Will it stop a small rock?
RESPONSE: Multiple factors play into this including; speed of projectile, thickness of lens, shape of rock and sharp edges, location of impact on the lens. But from my experience they should stop a small pebble
- Do goggles have thicker lenses compared to riding glasses?
RESPONSE: In general no they are not thicker, but there are some that could be.
- Has there been any recorded instances of someone being hit in the eye while wearing one of these lenses because it broke?
RESPONSE: Not that we are aware of, but cannot and will not guarantee anything.
But what I can say from my experience I would personally be extremely confident in wearing polycarbonate lenses while motorcycle riding and would not choose any other materials.
